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 24 years with two children (18 and 15).

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

No running today.  Feeling pretty good, but can feel that I need to rest my left knee and have some recovery time.  So, a good hard day and the gym lifting weights.

My wife convinced me to pace her for a training run this afternoon.  Good pace for her training (8:42 avg) while I pushed our daughter in the jogger.

Nice easy recovery 4M run early this morning.  No muscle soreness and no issue with my knees.  Still, I am going to take it very easy this week.

Nice moderate 5M run at lunch. Wanted to run with my buddy Dan, he took off early as I waited for the GPS to acquire (it took a while) and I never did catch him before he turned to go long. Felt good, no knee issues at all.

Kind of a crappy run. I felt like I was pushing it more, but only averaging a 7:00 pace. Only had time for a 5K and it was very early (around 4:20am) due to needing to be to work early, maybe just not awake yet. Won't be able to do a lunch run today, so chalk this up to a recovery day.

Easy 6.2 M run this morning at just under a 7:00 pace.  Beautiful morning with a great temp and just a little wind.  Legs felt great with no knee issues at all.   My wife did a early 5K run this morning avg. 8:30, so she is looking good for her race this weekend.  I will be her rabbit for a sub-8:30 pace.

Nice 6.3M MP run. Splits: 6:27, 6:37, 6:17, 6:17, 6:15, 6:15, 0.3M at 6:34. Pace felt great with pretty easy effort and no issues.

Very easy early morning 3.1M run early this morning.  Short due to time constraints (wife had to go to work early) and actually my knees acting up a little. 

Nice 5M run at lunch near MP (6:30).  Felt great and no knee pain at all.

Nice easy warmup before pacing Kami in the Scenic River Classic 5K.

Paced Kami in SRC. She finished 80th out of 198 runners, 5th in her division (largest division in both races!). She did great! I took her out a bit fast, and she struggled at 2.5M but had a great kick at the end!  Today, she became a runner as she pushed past her own perceived limit and finished strong.
