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

4:30am...4.5 easy miles with Moxie on a great morning.  (Ride 3 2015)

Hot day at lunch.  5 mile easy progression run around the greenbelt in 36:23 (7:16AP)...7:26, 7:25, 7:22, 7:09, 6:58.  (Mirage Red)

Took the kids to the track after dinner for the first summer workout. 4x200/400m with 200m recovery between intervals, full recovery between sets.  Kids did really good, Justin was running smooth and strong and we worked on Katelyn's form and she ran really well.  Good start! Broke in new Fastwitch.  (Fastwitch 6 2015)

4:30am...5 easy untimed miles with Moxie.  Slow, tired, sore.  (Ride 3 2015)

My younger brother got married today, in Paris.  Nice ceremony.  Hope he and his wife have a long and blessed marriage.

4 miles with Erik T. (and some with Justin) in the late evening.  Nice to run with Erik and have a chance to catch up a bit. (Fastwitch 6)

4 miles with Erik and Moxie on a warmer and muggy morning. Nice and easy (Erik's first few outside runs in his recovery from a  stress fracture).  (Ride 3 2015)

First tempo effort on the Tiger Grizz course.  Met DanS and we warmed up to the start then did a run on the course to remember its landmarks and go easy, not as easy as we thought though.  Ended up at around 7:30 for the first lap.  I then went harder on the second lap and just ran out of juice on it so ran with the flow but still trying to push a bit, ended up with 6:40 AP.  At least it is a start. Overall 6.5 miles in 46 minutes.  (Mirage Red)

3 miles with Katelyn (and Kami for some of it) after work.  Started off with a storm approaching but thought we could beat it...not.  Pouring rain last mile...kinda fun.  Except I was carrying my phone in case Justin got home...now there are no sounds!  Hope the rice bag trick works. (Fastwitch 6)

I got up at 4:30 to run...too tired and sore (we stayed up late watching "Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown" about Budapest...my heritage!), so I went back to sleep for another hour.

8 miles on a warm day at lunch at dead on 7:30 AP (last two miles pulled down the AP, was at sub 7:20 before that).  Easy pace, hot!  (Mirage Red)

2.3 miles from the gym to home after getting a massage.  Great evening for a run. (Fastwitch)

Slept in and went out for 3 miles with Moxie on a beautiful morning.  Dropped her off and went back out with Justin for 6 miles, focusing on his form and some 6:30ish paced miles.  Fun to run with him and he pushes me!

3 miles with Kami through the neighborhood.  (Fastwitch)

6am...I met Rex and DanS at the church below Blackhawk Estates for a run on the Iron Rim/Ammon Rd loop.  This time we did it the opposite way, running the rollers first, then the uphill on the dirt road and the 4 mile drop (fast) down on the paved section.  Nice morning for a run with good guys!  1:36 total time for 14 miles.

Got home and immediately went out with Katelyn for a 5K through the neighborhood.  She is doing great!  (Launch 2)
