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.

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 25+ years with two children (19 and 16).

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

I ran the annual FireKracker 5k.  Just ran it to try to have Justin and a buddy run fast, not full on (beacause I really can't right now).  Slowest time I have run it.  Lots of friends at the race. Went to watch the parade with family and friends then 3 more miles.  (Altra Impulse/Launch 2)

5 slow miles with Moxie.  Tired from the late night at the fireworks. (Mirage)

Instead of an evening run, I did yoga, stretching and rolling with Katelyn and Kami.

6am...I ran to Curt and Alana's house and we drove (with Gama) up to Iron Rim.  Met Patrick and Blake and took off for the run.  After the first mile I was totally solo, so I just kept up the pace and ran at tempo to mile 10 in 1:04 (6:27 avg) then ran a cooldown back to the house to finish off 12 miles.  As soon as I got home, had to rinse off and jet out to Katelyn's last track meet of the summer (she ran a 1600m PR!).  Tired, need a nap.
