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 from competitive racing.

Married for 26 years with two children (20 and 17).

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

We spent the day in Grand Teton National Park and rode from Moose to Jenny Lake.  A great day with the family in beautiful country for a 14 mile bike ride.  Katelyn was having a ball and we all had a great time.  Now I am hot and tired and ready to relax.

No lunch run, too busy at work.

3 miles in the blast furnace outside afterwork in 21:31.  It was hot!  (Fastwitch Red)

4:30am...6 easy miles with Moxie along Sunnyside.  I tried to get up earlier (4am) to run with Curt and even I could not make it happen this morning!  (Ride 3)

6 miles on a very hot and windy day at lunch.  I wanted to do a bit of a tempo today...kinda got there.  1 miles easy then 5 miles in a pretty weak 32:38.  The heat and headwind made this one tougher than it should have been.  Oh well, move on.  (Mirage Red)

4:15am...7 easy untimed miles with Moxie along Sunnyside.  Just my normal early morning start to the day on a warm and humid morning with some light rain at times. Back a bit stiff again. (Ride 3)

A stress reliever run at lunch today.  Started off pretty easy with Ron for little over a mile then ran into Gray shortly afterward and ran around 4 miles with him at a faster clip.  Finished off 6 miles in 41:45 with an extra lap through the park.  Hot out today.  (Mirage Red)

1.1 miles with Katelyn in the evening around the neighborhood in 10:45...she is getting faster and having fun!  Bad chafing...ouch! (Bikika)

7:30am...Justin and I made a failed attempt at a speed workout today.  Went to the Hillcrest track and were planning on a good number of 400m repeats.  Justin made 2 (legs fatigued from yesterday's 14 miles!) and I made 4 at 73 avg. and shut it down.  Legs got loaded up everytime at 200m and it just was not working.  So we finished off around 6 miles together running through Ammon and talking.

Got home and took Katelyn out for 3 solid miles through the neighborhood then finished of solo to 10 miles.   Did some yardwork and now wil be off to look at a new range/oven as ours seems to be going out (not keeping temp, gas smell using oven).  

Recap this year on household repairs:  water heater, garage door, paint jobs on cars, new brakes, new fuel pump, new camper batteries, new bearing and ankle repack on camper, new door lock, and now a new range!   I guess it is only money.

6am...met Craig at the corner and we ran a greenbelt loop and kept a very honest pace.  9 miles with Craig catching up on things and finished off to 11 miles in 1:15.  Felt good to press the pace for some miles. 

4 miles later with Justin and Moxie through the neighborhood easy except the last 0.25M where he pushed to 5:15 pace...man he is getting fast!  (Boost)

2 more miles with Katelyn around the neighborhood before heading to the pool for some family fun.  (Bikila)

3 mile bike ride with Katelyn!
