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

Recovery day after the marathon (bummed that Rob did not at least ask if I wanted to run with him but he is obviously the smarter runner than I...because I probably would have said yes and paid for it!).  

Spent the morning with the Murphy's and dined for breakfast at Ruth's diner...yum!  Drove up the Des News course to check it out.  Headed home in the late morning for the start of another week.

6 easy recovery miles with Moxie, 3.5 miles with Curt catching up on the weekend races.  (TSD5)

5 miles of easy recovery at lunch in 39 minutes...as much for mental health as anything to get out of my cave.  (Tangent 1)

Talked to my runner buddies who ran the Teton Dam half/full this past weekend...what a weird day! 

Gray ran the half and nearly got ran over by a crazed farmer twice then got into a fist fight with him on the road...and still won the race in 1:17 and change! 

Pat was running the full and leading by 15 minutes at the half when he heard a "pop" and had to immediately stop due to a bad hamstring, done for the day.  Thankfully not as bad as it seemed at th race but still no fun to DNF and now have to rehab to get ready for Poky!

5 very slow easy miles with Moxie early this morning.  I was really tired and my legs were heavy so this was just a run to get the legs shaken out.  (TSD5)

3.5 miles in 26 minutes out on the desert in beautiful weather...sunny, light breeze, 70 degrees.  Nice sanity run.  (Tangent 1)

1.6 miles with Justin getting him ready for the Scenic River Classic 5K this Saturday.  (Tangent 1)

5 miles early and easy with Moxie.  Ran with Curt for a few miles which is always welcome company. 

4.3 miles at lunch in 29:30 on a beautiful day at lunch.  Ran a bit harder and shorter due to work meetings.

Found out I have to drop my truck off tomorrow for another repair (intake manifold gasket, spyder assembly to replace poppet valves) that will cost $1100!  This is in addition to the recent costs for new tires, new AC unit and new tie rod assembly.   Good thing this has been paid off for years and only has 80K miles otherwise I would be really mad and looking for a new rig!  Plan to keep this one long enough to give to Justin for his first car then I get a new one! 

Giving a talk on Marathon training at the Teton Running Co. tonight...should be fun with about 30 people signed up to attend.  Man, I need to make sure I have something good to talk about with them!

8.3 miles early this morning in about 1:04.  Ran with Gray, Nate and Dane Rauschenberg for about 10K of the run.  Dane was in town on the way home from running the Boise half IronMan last weekend and stopped by the Teton Running Co. yesterday to do a book signing.  He stayed around for my marathon training discussion last night and added some good things to the topic and discussion.  Seems like a good guy and someone to keep in touch with...a fun run!  (Mirage)

4.7 stress relieving miles at lunch on a cool, windy and cloudy day in 36:15.  Had to get out of the office before my head exploded.  (Tangent 1)

Out the door at 5:15 to meet Curt for a run.  Ran about 4.6 miles with Moxie and Curt then dropped off Moxie and went back out with Curt for another 2.5 miles.  Curt had to go home and then ran with Andrea for another couple of miles and finished off the last 3 miles solo.  Cold morning...it was 33 degrees when I headed out the door!

Got up early to run with Moxie.  7.3 miles with Moxie, 3 of which were with Marlin as we ran through SRL!  Dropped off Moxie then went back out to finish 11 miles in 1:19:45.  

Paced my son in the Scenic River Classic 5K to a 30:08 time...very proud of him to push through and not give up on himself (with a bit of prodding at times, but he kept moving!).  

Gray won the half in 1:15ish, Lynette won in 1:34. Andrea ran a 1:38 and my friend Ron ran a 140 (just to name a few).  Ran home after the race and saying high to lots of folks.  3 miles in 21:30, including the last mile at 6:30 pace.  Total mileage for the day...17.4 miles.
