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 slows miles on a hot day at lunch in 45 minutes.  Too little fuel in the tank after a 12 hour fast for a blood test this morning.  I am starving!  (Cortana)

4:30am...6 miles with Moxie, this run seemed very familar.  (Mirage)

No lunch run today due to a busy schedule.  Nor after work due to a school athletics meeting (probably going to be the assistant middle school XC coach if they get enough runners) and getting my son's bike for his birthday.

No morning run, tired due to being up late getting ready for my son's 14th birthday and being old.  I will try to get a speed work session in at lunch before taking the afternoon off to do birthday stuff (movie, pizza, etc.).

8.25 miles in 56 minutes at lunch.  A bit hot...some easy and some close to MP.   Then I took my son and his buddies to see the new Percy Jackson movie.  (Cortana)

6am...10 miles with Curt around the greenbelt and home.  Great time running with him and glad for the motivation as I was very tight (left hammy, hips) the whole time.  (Mirage)

5am...15 miles from Calvary Chapel up the Iron Rim hill with Curt and Craig.  1:02 to the top, 50 minutes back down.  Pushed a little coming back which felt ok.  Thanks for the run guys!  (Boost)

Our family drove over to Teton National Park and went for a 15ish mile bike ride, took a dip in Jenny Lake, and picnicked on a gorgeous day and had a lot of fun!  Ate at MacPhil's burgers in Jackson, stopped for square ice cream cones at Irwin (Rainy Creek) and checked out a couple of campgrounds for later in the year.  A great day with my family!
