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

7 miles after watching the women's olympic marathon.  6 miles with Moxie, then one with Justin and Katelyn.  (Ride)

Took off for our week of camping...the kid's at Luther Heights Bible camp at Alturas Lake and Kami and I just outside of Ketchum.

I did a 6 mile run on the Harriman Trail with Moxie while Kami biked with us.  From North Fork campground up through Wood River and back.

Later, we hike up to Mill Lake...a good 5 mile round trip up a good grade.  Beautiful and all to ourselves!

Kami and I wanted to bike together on the Harriman trail from the campground to the Galena Lodge.  We put Moxie in the camper but she yelped for 10 minutes so we brought her along.  We biked from North Fork to Easley, then Moxie and I turned around and Kami kept going to the lodge.  Moxie did a 15 mile trail run  (I will count the 15 miles as 5 easy miles) and Kami ended up with 19 miles up the whole trail.

Lunch at Galena lodge then we drove back to camp.  I did another 8 miles running on the trail before calling it a day.

I got up early and did  7 miles on the trail.  After lunch, we hiked up to Norton Lakes which is a solid 4.25 miles of good climbing up to a beautful lake.   A cool cloudy day which was really nice.

Afterwards, as we were making dinner I punctured my hand lightly with a knife (but it hurt!).  After dinner, we were sitting talking and I was checking out how much my hand hurt when I started to get light headed.  The next thing I know, Kami was behind me yelling for help as I passed out and my eyes rolled to the back of my head.  A quick trip to the emergency room diagnosed me with Vasovagal syncope due to dehydration, low blood pressure and low heart rate.  This was the first time I had had and issue due to being in good shape!  Pretty scary event, especially for Kami.

Due to the events of yesterday, we took it a bit easier today.  We dropped Moxie off at doggie day care inl Ketchum then rode the gondola to the top of Mt. Baldy to bike.  We biked down the single track of cold springs trail for about 12 miles of pretty technical and exposed trail. 

We rode the gondola back up to the Roundhouse restraurant for lunch and Kami decided that was enough single track for the day.  We enjoyed the leisurely lunch, then biked 8 miles on the WoodRiver paved pathway through Ketchum to Warm Springs lift area for a total of 20 miles of biking for the day (I will count as 7 easy miles).

We walked around Ketchum for a bit then picked up Moxie and back for our last night at camp.

No running today.  We packed up camp and dropped off the trailer at the HQ for the recreation area before heading over the Galena summit to visit Redfish Lake for a spell and a lunch break. 

Then we picked up the kids at camp and made the long drive home to IF.

Got the kids up early for the Kids Tri Harder Triathlon.  They both swam 100m, rode 2 miles on the bike and ran a mile.  Justin finished in 12:40 (1st OA) and Katelyn in 20:27.

Afterwards, went for a quick 7 mile run in 45 minutes along Sunnyside before cleaning up after camping for a week (unloaded trailer, vacuumed, washed truck, etc.). 

Watched a bit of the Olmpics, bummed I missed so much of the track and field events.  We did watch the 5000m, 1500m and relays last night and can't wait to watch the marathon tomorrow morning.
