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

No run today.  Travel day from Georgetown Lake, MT (where we camped overnight in pretty constant rain) to Camp O'Hara on the Selway River in Idaho.

11M run along the roadway from camp before everyone else woke up.  Nice run at an average 6:54 pace in a beautiful setting.

21M mountain bike ride with Kami up to Selway Falls and back.  I ended up having 3 flat tires and only 1 tube and a couple of patches.  Eventually got the point on the return trip where I just couldn't patch it anymore.  Kami continued on for the remaining 3M back to camp, while I got a ride with Larry on his 4-wheeler and my bike got back to camp in the back of a forest service pickup.

The family then went for a 4M float down the Selway River...great time!  Now time for beer and dinner.

7M run down the road again...a little tired after yesterday but just too good to pass up.  Now for more fun with the kid's in the river, 4-wheeler ride with Katelyn trailing Kami back up to Selway Falls (Kami on her bike), and more floating...and of course more beer and great food.

While floating, broke an oar on a big rock about 1M from the pullout and had to work hard to get to shore.  Right hip was sore afterwards.

5M at noon after Jerry and I took the kids fishing at the stock pond at Fenn Ranger Station.  Tired and my hip was still quite sore this morning and it felt too good to sleep in a bit in the camper.  It was warm out, but I needed the run to clear the head and just feel better.  More floating and fun at camp.

7M again after sleeping in a bit...decided to go out since I knew tomorrow would be travel day home and no run since we would start out early.  Last day at camp...sad.  More floating, food, beer and fun!

8M early today.  Tired and my back was very stiff (probably from the long drive yesterday).  Spent the day saying goodbye to my brother and his family, cleaning up after camping (truck was filthy) and buying Kami her new road bike...a Raleigh Supercourse full carbon fiber frame...a sweet ride!
