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 from competitive racing.

Married for 26 years with two children (20 and 17).

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 miles in 56 minutes on a beautiful morning through SRL with Moxie.  Saw Alana and Shannon and chatted them for a short time during the run.  My back if really locked up today, hope it clears up soon.

I slept in today as I am staying home for my son's 12th birthday.  Started my run around 7:30am and ran the first 5 miles with Moxie at sub-7 pace.  Dropped her off and finished off my run solo through SRL.  Had to make a pitstop and by the end was running out of fuel (4 PowerBar Energy Blasts and 2 cups of coffee) but ended up with a good run and all my miles were between 6:56-6:34.  Total of 12.2 miles in 1:23:20 for a 6:50 average...nice easy run on a great morning.

6 miles slow with Moxie at 4:30am...very tired after yesterday's activities.  The ball of my right foot started to hurt again before work and my back was really sore from the start...time to get the massage scheduled for tomorrow.  (TSD5)

We had a great bithday party for our son (theme: Greek Gods) with all his friends.   But unfortunately, we wer up late with a downer issue...out 18 year old cat is dying and we had to have the kids say goodbye.  Luckily she did not pass on my son's birthday but we will have to deal with it today.  My wife and I have had her since right after we got married, she will be missed.

6 miles at lunch on a warm day at a 7:15 pace.  Legs as heavy as my heart for this run.

I saw one of the stupidest people I have ever seen on my way to work.  A woman was riding a bike on a cracked and bumpy sidewalk with no helmet...talking on a cell phone...steering with one hand...with a baby in a front loader baby carrier on her chest!   Why are people like this allowed to pro-create?

Out the door at 4am this morning for my run as I had leave for work before 6am today.  Met Curt at the corner and ran about 5 miles with him through SRL.  Good to have the company this early!  Finished off 6 miles in 45 minutes, my faster morning run in quite some time.  Off to a long day at work today.  (TSD5)

4 miles at lunch in 28 minutes on a hot day.  (Mirage)

Had a massage last night to work out the issues in my back, it seemed to help but I still have a bit of soreness this morning...just too early and old!   6 easy miles with Moxie, then at home about 25 minutes of stretching (which I don't do enough of) which really helped with my stiffness.  (TSD5)

8.15 miles in 55:45 at lunch today.  I ran the first mile easy with Dan (7:47) then picked it up for the rest around 6:30-6:45 range.  Overall felt good, a little tired still.  Stopped and chatted with Gary for few minutes.  Warmish and windy day but a good day to be outside rather than in my cold, dark office.  (Mirage)

Slept in and went out around 5:30am with Moxie.  I started slow then ran into Rob and ran 2 miles with him, then I saw Andrea and ran and easy mile with her.  Got back home at 7 miles, dropped off Moxie, then went back out through SRL for another 6.65 miles.  On the way back home I saw McKay and chatted for a bit.  Overall 13.65 miles in an easy 1:45:13.  My back is feeling a lot better and it felt nice to run without the tightness and run easy for fun on a cool morning (I had to put on gloves and my sleeves for the second part of the run!).

Slept in up at camp today.  We are camping at McCoy Creek on the back side of Palisade's reservoir with some friends.  It felt great to sleep in, have coffee overlooking the water and have a big breakfast with my family and friends. 

When the other adults went to town, I did a run up McCoy Creek Road and back for 7 miles at around a 7:15 pace.   I had to run through a hack of dragonflies during part of the run...they were everywhere and hard to dodge! 

Afterwards, had a beer then we all went to the bridge and jumped in the water several times to cool off.  We saw several golden and bald eagles over the weekend, very cool! 

Ah, camping in a beautiful setting with family and friends...nothing better!
