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

8 easy miles with Moxie before work and before the storm rolls in.  Very nice morning for a run.  The last 2-3 days when I start out running my shoulder has a sharp pain in it, it goes away but it really hurts. (Ride 3 2015)

5am..6 easy miles with Erik T. and Moxie.  Nice to have human company on these early morning runs! (Ride 3 2015)

Tempo run at lunch.  A short warm up then 5 miles at tempo in 30:55.  Sucky first mile (6:25) then the next 4 at a better pace (6:06).  About a mile cooldown for a total of 6 miles.  HOT by the end, overheating at the end of the tempo section.  (Mirage Red)

6.5 miles in the late evening.  3 miles with Kami (who finished at a fast pace) then back out for 3.5 faster miles with Justin (so he wasn't running alone in the dark). (Fastwitch 6)

5:15am...5 easy miles with Moxie.  Didn't not sleep well (or much at all) last night, basically up from 1-3am.  (Ride 3 2015)

Nice day at lunch for a run.  Still a bit tired, wanted to run fast so I decided to try a progression run...worked out ok. 1 mile easy, then kept picking it up: 7:59, 7:35, 7:13, 6:57, 6:43, 6:24.  0.25M cooldown.  6.25 miles in 44:45.  Felt really easy for the pace increase. (Mirage Red)

3 miles with the family at Community Park after dinner. (Boost)

5am...10.25 easy miles through SRL and to Broadway and back.  I was supposed to meet a friend but ended up solo.  In the underpass by Broadway ran by a guy sleeping...he jumped when I entered the tunnel and it scared the crap out of me! (Launch 2)

Katelyn has a tri this morning and Justin turned 16!

4 miles with the family after Katelyn's tri...2 with Katelyn and caught Justin and Kami for most of the remainder.  (Ride 3 2015)
