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

6am...my alarm went off at 4am and I just could not get up to go out for a run.  I slept in until 5:30, had a cup of joe then finally decided to jump out for a quick run on the perfect morning for at least a short run.  (Fastwitch Red)

Lunch run with DanS around the river.  Cooler but very humid day (big storms approaching...flash flood warnings for most of SE and central Idaho for the few days and next couple).  4 miles easier with Dan then I picked it up a bit for the rest (6:35, 6:25, 4:48).  Total of 6.75 miles in 48:20.  (Mirage Red)

6am...I met Erik T. for a run this morning.  We ran a river loop from the church and had a great time catching up on things and life.  Fun run before camping.  10.6 miles total at around 7:00 pace.  (Fastwitch Red)

Happy 15th Birthday, Justin!  We are up at Wood River Campground and we slept in and had a good birthday morning with Justin before heading up to Alturas Lake to get Katelyn from Luther Heights Camp.  Spent some time collecting her and visiting the lake before heading back to our camper.  We were going to go out for a run but a HUGE rain and hail storm derailed our plans so we spent the afternoon playing games. 

Got out for a short bike ride in the evening after the storms blew through but I am counting this one as a day off.

Slept in again and missed the best time to run (though it was pretty chilly).  Kami, Steve and I hiked to Titus Lake but a storm was blowing in with lightning, thunder and rain so we cut the hike a bit short.  Rain storm again this afternoon so more games then a run and hike with Justin afterwards along the Harriman Trail behind camp.  

Another fun day at camp with the family.
