Short-Term Running Goals:

Keep on running, enjoy it for the sake of running, relax and enjoy life...de stress.

No racing, retired.

 

Long-Term Running Goals:

Keep running until this old body says no, running for fun.

Support my wife's endeavor to do long distance road biking and her renewed interest in running! Keep biking more with her as cross training maybe do a Century ride.

 

Personal:

Born in 1968.  I live in Idaho Falls, ID.  I started running competitively in 2005 and ran my first marathon in 2005. Now retired.

Married for 25+ years with two children (19 and 16).

Bend down, O Lord, and hear my prayer;
answer me, for I need your help.
Protect me, for I am devoted to you.
Save me, for I serve you and trust you.
You are my God.
Be merciful to me, O Lord,
for I am calling on you constantly.
Give me happiness, O Lord,
for I give myself to you.
O Lord, you are so good, so ready to forgive,
so full of unfailing love for all who ask for your help.
Listen closely to my prayer, O Lord;
hear my urgent cry.
I will call to you whenever I’m in trouble,
and you will answer me.  - Psalm 86:1-7

6am...7 easy untimed miles with Moxie on  a gorgeous morning for a run!  (Cortana)

Out for a 50+ mile bike ride with Kami on the rollers through Osgood and home on a very nice day, even a bit warm on the way back.  Man, that kicked my butt...and Kami does 2 of these consecutively for her sport!  She is a strong rider and she dropped me hard the last 5 miles.  Now I am starving!

Slept in this morning (since it is taper week) and caught my early flight.  After making it to the hotel, drove up to Dodge Park and ran 7.5 miles in53 minutes on the Clinton River Trail and a very nice afternoon.  Now for dinner and to watch game 7!  (Cortana)

5am...5 easy miles out and back on Common Rd. from the hotel.  Very nice morning for a run before an all day meeting.  (Mirage)

Skipped the run this evening after work and went to the game where we watched the Tigers whomp the Rays, 10-1.  Great cheap seats in right field and nearly got the ball that Prince Fielder hit out!

Slept in this morning, will go out after work probably back at the Clinton River Trail.

9 miles in 1:05.  Meetings ended earlier than expected and got out for a nice run in the late afternoon.  Great day to run on the Clinton River Park Trail, except for all the cotton in the air (in my eyes and sucked a few down too!).  Free beer and dinner at the hotel tonight!  (Mirage)

Early meetings tomorrow then flying home so likely no run tomorrow.  That's ok, my normal day off before a marathon.

Slept in and went out for a short shake out run around 6:45.  Nice morning, bumped into Alana and Shannon.  3.1 miles in 21 minutes, about half easy and half at MP.  (Tangent)

Busy day between kids' activities including Justin running the 1600m at the Hershey's meet this morning.

Quick report...2nd overall in 2:47:28 behind Ryan Jones (recent BYU grad and XC/track runner - 3:51 in the 1500m in May!).  Running together with Ryan thru 16 miles at about a 6:15ish pace, then 2 pitstops due to GI issues caused me to fall back and never catch up, behind Ryan by about 3 minutes.  Overall happy with the time on a hard course and was on track for a 2:44ish finish before the GI issues.  I used 3 PowerBar Gels during the race for fueling, nice to promote and use their products! A nice day for a run!  I wore the Adiddas Boost...not sure these are my marathon shoes as I developed a hot spot around mile 8 that lasted to the end of the race.  (Boost)
