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.

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

After the race yesterday, we move up to SLC (nicer hotel, closer to other activities for the family) and spend the afternoon at the Museum of Natural History and playing in the pool with Kory and Rachelle's kids.

After a fitful night sleep, we head to Hogle Zoo on a great morning with the Wheatley's for a fun morning.

Drive back to IF after a quick lunch to find out horrible news.  A good friend of ours died over the weekend leaving a wife and 3 young children.  Pretty close friend's of ours (mostly through mutual friends)...very sad.

4M easy early before Kami' goes to work...slow and uneventful except for being charged by a big dog. Legs feel ok, calves still tight a bit.

5M at lunch on a wonderful afternoon.  First 2.5M with Dan S, then back to the office.  Just have to clear my head after talking to friend's about our friend who died.  Nice easy run at an average 7:14 pace...legs felt good but still in recovery for sure.

Looked and found out my buddy Pat B. won the Teton Dam marathon in a time of 2:39:39!!!  That is a tremendous time on that tough course!  Way to go Pat!

5M very easy early this morning.  Great weather, legs just very dead today...recovery week! (Trigon)

5M easy at lunch out on the desert at the site facility.  Nice sunny and warm day with no wind.  Just nice and easy...ran 0.5M with Ron N. who is training for a sprint tri and is nursing a sore knee.  (Ride)

6M early on a nice morning, 50 degrees and no wind.   Nice and easy, legs heavy again...I can definitely tell I am in recovery mode.  Hard to get up and out the door but I always feel better after a run.  (Trigon)

5M run at lunch on a nice day in 37:15.  Nothing special, inside of quads a bit sore today but nothing to worry about.  (Ride)

1M after dinner with my son in 9:30...gotta keep him running.  He did great, we were talking the whole time and he sprinted to the finish.

5M easy early this morning...hard to get up, tired and unmotivated.  Planned 4, ran 5.  Quads still a bit sore.  (Trigon)

5M easy at lunch on a beautiful running day.  About 0.25M into the run, my foot "twinged" big time, felt like a pop run under the ball of my foot.  I stopped and stretched it out and the sharp pain stopped.  It didn't bother me the rest of the run but I will watch it.  (Ride)

Slept in and went out for a run after the sun had come up!  9M in 1:01 (avg. 6:48) after an easy mile, then I started to push the rest of the miles between 6:50 and 6:30.  Foot a bit tender this morning but not bad.  I will ice it and continue to watch it.  

We probably aren't camping this weekend as the weather tomorrow is supposed to turn nasty in Island Park/Yellowstone (thundershowers, 50 degrees and wind) even though it is beautiful right now.  Even with the camper, spending the whole weekend in 120 square feet with 4 people would not be the most enjoyable.  So, stick around, play outside today.  I might try to run the big local 10K race tomorrow...we'll see.

Got home from the run and discussed the weekend plans with the kids...no to camping due to weather.  Kids got invited to play at a friends house, so Kami and I went out for a 4M run...she did great and her foot did not bother her.  Average pace of 8:45!  Nice to run with her again!

1M with the whole family as a "practice" for the race tomorrow.  I am going to run the Scenic River Classic 10K and Justin and Katelyn are doing the kid's 1M fun run.  It is very cool how excited they are about it!

I ran the big local fund raiser race, the Scenic River Classic  2nd overall to a 18 year old by about 10 seconds...not a bad time considering I ran marathon a week ago.

Went out easy in the race and was sitting patiently behind Cody (1st place) throughout the whole race until about mile 5 where he slowed and I caught him at 5.5M.  Almost got hit by a car crossing over Broadway (had police on one side and not the other crossing...had to come to a complete stop!).  My legs were feeling a bit heavy and his youth paid off and he had a bit more of a kick in the last 0.25M than I did...I should have pushed harder to try and break his spirits (note:  fight harder at the end!) and take the win but alas it didn't happen (I kinda gave in and that is disappointing but I am happy with the time overall).

I ran 2M warmup, then the race, then 1M fun run with my son (who ran an 8:20 mile!) and a bit more to finish of 2M after the race.

Cool and cloudy and threatening rain (then the sun would come out at times).  Dark clouds loooming...I hope it rains so Kami doesn't get too pissed that we didn't camp!
