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 24 years with two children (18 and 15).

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)
