Short-Term Running Goals:

Keep on running, enjoy it for the sake of running, get some races in this year. 

Help train with my kids for XC and track, ride my bike more (Century this year?) with my wife and try to stay healthy and overcome old man niggles.

Lift weights more...lots more.

 

Long-Term Running Goals:

Keep running until this old body says no, running for fun and occasional race here and there, mostly retired from competitive racing. Now in the 45-49 AG.

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 23 years with two children (17and 14).

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

Nice easy 6.2M progession run early in the AM (7:25-6:35).  Feeling good a week after the TDM.

Very easy 5M run this morning, just couldn't get the pace up, knees a little bit soft this morning.  A bit tired this morning, so I went short as well.  Try to make it up at lunch today.

Estimated 5.25M (distance and time with no GPS but pretty accurate from knowledge of course and clock in office building) run at lunch at moderate pace (6:25). Good run, no knee pain and pace was easy.

I am looking at my race calendar, targeting St. George as my goal race and am reconsidering running Mesa Falls marathon in late August and instead thinking of Deseret News in July.  How is the course for DNM, does it beat you up?  I want to get in 4 marathons this year and want to be ready for a low 2:30's at SGM.  Any thoughts?

Nice easy 10K run early this morning. First 3M at 7:00 pace, last 3.2M at ~ 6:45 pace. Legs felt a bit heavy, but no knee issues.

Warm 6.05M run at lunch at MP pace (through 5M avg. 6:15, last 1.05M at more like 6:40).  Good up tempo run.

Nice easy 5M run early this morning.  Legs felt a bit heavy, so just went with the pace that felt comfortable.

Easy 5.15M run at lunch. Hot today but it was beautiful day for a run.

Easy run before a 5 year olds birthday party and all the preparation that goes into pulling that off.  Afterwards, heading down to Farmington to take the family to Lagoon.
