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 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

4 very slow miles with Moxie on a nice morning.  My calves are trashed after the last 2 days so this was more of a run to get the dog out than me.

7 miles early, slow and easy with Moxie.  Calves are still trashed so this was a really slow one.  (TSD5)

6 easy miles at lunch around the greenbelt running with Pat and Dan for a portion of the run.  At the 2 mile mark, their Garmin's beep and mine doesn't so I look down to see the blue battery in the wrist band...the GPS unit had fallen off again.  Back track about 0.5M to find it laying on the ground.  Time for a new Garmin!  (Mirage)

4 very slow easy miles early with Moxie.  My calves are still very sore and I just felt tired and sore all over this morning so I did just enough miles to even call this a jog, not a run.  (TSD5)

4 miles at lunch in hot windy conditions in 30 minutes.  Calves better but still tight.  (Mirage)

7 easy early miles with Moxie...calves feeling better but still not 100%.  (TSD5)

7 miles at lunch on a nice warm and sunny day with a light breeze in 49 minutes.  Nice easy pace with a neagative split and my calves significantly better than this morning...I think I am through the pain!  (Mirage)

7 miles with Moxie early through SRL.  Still just tired at 4:30am.  (TSD5)

6.5 miles on a wonderful day for a run at lunch in 45:45.  Legs felt good but insides were turning and I had to make a couple of pit stops...dang FiberOne bar!  (Mirage)

I slept in and hit the road around 6:30am.  6 miles with Moxie in 42:10, then back out for another 6 miles through SRL in 41:40 for a total time of 1:23:50 on a beautiful morning for a run.  Now for a day off of work around the house, mostly taking down wallpaper and repainting some walls.

Up and out the door at 5am for a 10 mile run in 1:18:40 since we had to be at the gym before 7:30am for my daughter's swim meet.  Met Andrea for most of the run and Lynette at the end for a good early morning run.  Afterwards ran the kids around and did some errands and finished decorating my sons room.  I might go back out for a few more miles with Moxie...

4 dog limited pace miles in 30 minutes on a muggy afternoon, Moxie just didn't want to run faster.  Now off to see Pirates of the Caribbean with my family.
