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

No run today as we were breaking camp today.  I didn't sleep very well last night and decided to sleep in again and just enjoy nature and the company at camp.  Broke down camp and left for home around 12:30, got home at 3:15 after stopping for ice cream on the way.  The rest of the day was spent cleaing up (ourselves, the camper, clothes, the dog, etc.), eating and just getting back into the home groove...can I go back to camp instead?

Thought about going out for a run in the late afternoon heat, but decided to spend time with the family watching a movie in the cool basement...a better choice!

Slept in and went out a little later and ran 11 miles in 1:21 through SRL to Broadway and back down Sunnyside for a bit.  Ran easy and felt really good at a 7:20ish pace after a fun but long weekend camping.  (Launch)

5 miles at lunch in 36:25 on a cool, cloudy and windy day.  Slow and easy as my hips were a bit tight for this run.  Really slow going out (about 8 minute for the first 1.5 miles) then I picked it up a bit for the way back.  (Tangent 1)

4 miles at an easy pace VERY early this morning before heading to the airport for a quick business trip...that is too early to be outside running instead of in a deep REM sleep!  (TSD5)

Hoping for another run once I get to my destination and before dinner with co-workers. 

Arrived at our destination and after getting off the plane didn't feel quite right, but figured it was due to being a bit hungry.  Once we got to the hotel, I immediately went out for a run before meeting with the guys for beers and dinner...but something was way off.  I managed to run 6 miles from the hotel to the community center track and back in 45 minutes in hot and humid weather.  The whole time I felt like I was going to get sick.   After getting back, took a shower and went down to the bar...I was sweating but chilled and felt lightheaded and dizzy and had horrible body aches.  Went back to my room and tried to just sleep off what ever I had gotten to me...the worst night of sleep ever!!!

No run due to feeling horrible, lack of sleep, meetings and traveling home.  Hope this goes away!

I slept in to catch up on my sleep today and will try to get out at lunch.  Feeling better, but still not 100%.  Felt very clammy and quesy on the flights yesterday again.

7 miles in just over 50 minutes at lunch on nice day.  I felt good at the beginning but about 3 miles in I started to feel pretty puny and by the end it was all I could do to keep running.   Definitely not over whatever this bug is that I have. (Tangent 1)

3 miles after work with Moxie in my Vibram's in 24 minutes.  Slow and easy since my stomach is still jacked up, but with the family still out playing at the water park, I figured what the heck.  (Vibram)

No run today as I stayed home to get over this bug that I picked up.  Slept a lot and just rested and by the evening was feeling much better.  An involuntary low mileage week may do my body good.

15 miles in 1:49:07 (7:17 avg) this morning.  Started with Moxie (8 miles), Deborah and McKay.  Dropped off Moxie then went back out for 7 more and a faster pace. Ran into Alana, Shannon and Marlin.  Last 4 miles were all between 6:30-6:50 pace.  My glutes and hips started to ache a bit at the end but I think that is from the body aches earlier in the week.

1 mile with my son in 8:45...great job Justin!
