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

Legs pretty sore, so this 4 mile run before church was for Moxie.  (Mirage)

4:30am...normal 6 miler with Moxie.  Right groin sore this morning.  (Mirage)

No lunch run...went out to my truck to get my stuff and ended up having to replace my battery as it was dying.  $120 later I am now back at my desk, at least the old one lasted 6 years and I got a little $ under it's warranty.    May try to get a run or bike ride in tonight.

4:30am...6 miles with Moxie.  Really tired this morning, had a hard time getting up and going.  Slow run, tight left hammy and right hip/groin.  Nearly got hit again in a cross walk at Sunnyside Acres, may have to avoid that intersection!  Only run for today as we have an event at lunch at the site and I have a church meeting tonight.  Hopefully have more energy tomorrow and less going on.  (Cortana)

I could not drag myself out of bed this morning, so no early run.  Try to go a bit longer today and this evening (if possible with family stuff).  Training has not been good lately...oh well other things going on.

I hate being old, creaky and slow.  10 hot miles in 1:11.  Started good, ended badly...not feeling very ready for Pocatello.  (Cortana)

4:15am...6 slow and tight miles with Moxie.  Not having too much fun lately on these morning runs with all my creaks and tightness.  (Cortana)

Justin and I ran my friend Pat's fundraiser, the 2nd annual Cady Tucker Run for Life 5M/5K.   The race was in the late afternoon and it was 96 degrees out...to hot.  Ran at MP for the whole race (5 loops of Freeman Park) and finished 1st at just over 6:00 pace...pathetic but the heat beat everyone up.  0.5M warmup, 1 mile afterwards pacing Justin on his last lap. 

Won $100 for the effort and a free massage for Justin so not a bad day.  Justin did great, very proud of him.  (Boost)

Slept in since my kids were running a triathlon this morning.  They both did great and both had podium finishes for their distance!  I paced Justin on his 1 mile run.

Afterwards, Kami and I headed out for a bike ride (around noon...hot!).  50 miles through the rollers in Osgood and back home in just under 3 hours.  Fun, but hard and did I mention hot!!!   A great day!
