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

6 easy early miles with Moxie...slow and uncomfortable the whole time due to need for a pit stop from mile 1 on.  Got home as fast as I could muster this morning.  (TSD5)

7.25 miles at lunch in 47:20.  1 mile w/u with Pat, then 5 mile MP tempo, 1.25 cooldown.  I hit the 6 mile mark in 38:55, so avg. for the 5 miles of 6:15ish pace.  Ran in cloudy humid conditions, but cool with a light rain on and off...a good run!  (Tangent 1)

Out early this morning.  Tired and sore at the start but started to feel better about halfway in when I ran into Curt.  Ran a few miles with him before dropping off Moxie and finishing up another mile solo for a slow and easy 7 mile run in 57:30. 

Probably no run at lunch due to work conflicts but I may try for a run later today after work.

5k after work in 20:10 along Sunnyside in 85 degrees.  Nothing special, just a short run before a dinner appointment.  Got some whistles from a car full of women...makes up for the car that yelled at me on Saturday.

I slept horribly last night, my traps are sore and locked up.  Got up early to meet a friend at the corner for a run...no show.  So I ran home and got Moxie for an additional slow easy 6 miles. 7 miles total in 57:28. (TSD5)

4 miles in a slow 26:10 at lunch in 80 degrees and full sunshine so I heated up faster today.  Not pleased with the time on this short run, but I just didn't have the next gear today.  (Tangent 1)

No early morning run today so I could sleep in and just find my morning mojo again...nice to get an extra hour of sleep.  Will go longer at lunch today and try to get a quick run around the greenbelt when the kids are at Taekwando tonight.

10 miles at lunch in 1:06:08 for a 6:36 average pace.  1 mile easy, then 6 miles at MP, followed by 3 slightly slower miles including the last one at 7:00 pace.  It was warm, muggy and sunny out during the run which probably accounted for the slow down at the end (plus lack of fuel this morning due to work meetings).  I ran with my new Garmin Forerunner 210 today, I really like this new GPS unit...smaller and simple! (Mirage)

No evening run as it was windy, rainy and lightning all over the place. Made my first order or Saucony gear today and got some PowerBar gear in the mail...my running apparel just got a big boost today.

Out the door at 4:30am with Moxie for 4 miles before I had to drop her off because I was literally pulling her along...I don't need the extra resistance at this hour.  This did not help my already poor mood.  Back out for 4.65 miles more with some faster miles to catch and drop some rude, unfriendly runners that I passed going the other way...some kind of morning motivation, stuck up runners at 5am.  Total time of 1:06:04, best early morning run in quite some time, who knew that running in a bad mood would improve my performance.  (TSD5)

6.5 miles in 46:14 (7:09 avg.) around the greenbelt on a fantastic day for a run.  I had to stop twice for pitstops and my right ankle was a bit sore.  Overall an ok run, first mile 7:30, then the rest spot on at 7:00 pace.  (Mirage)

19.1 miles this morning in 2:17.  Started at the cemetery with Curt and we ran up and back down the Sunnyside hill.  6 miles up in 52 minutes, back down in about 34 minutes.  The Curt had to head home and I wanted a few more miles before connecting back up with Kami (who was biking the hills so I ran down on Sunnyside.  Hooked up with Nate R. for a few miles, then saw Lynette as she was heading home after running with the rest of the group.  I finished off the remainder of the run solo. 

Afterwards, the family headed to the pool for a morning of fun in the sun and water!
