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.

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

Nice run in Belgrade, MT from our friends house on a beautiful but cool morning. Nice pathways on sides of the roads to run on. Drive back to IF today after stopping at Virginia City, MT.

Decent early morning run in the howling wind. Even paced, just easy.  Probably no run at lunch today as I am taking my daugther to her first day of kindergarten.

Nice easy early morning 6M run in the wind and rain (overdressed for rain, but it didn't come down much at all).

On the way to work this morning, I was driving my dad's pickup to work (wife's minivan is in the shop, so we are swapping cars around) and the rear tire fell off! All 4 lugnuts were missing...obviously an intentional act as that doesn't happen by itself! Luckily no damage, but what a wakeup!

Easy early morning run. A little stiffness in left calf and achilles.

Likely no run at lunch as we are going to the funeral service for Dan'l Dooley, a very nice young guy who was killed in a motorcycle accident earlier this week.

Easy early morning 7M run. Left achilles a little stiff again. Progressively faster each mile in the run. Good run this morning at around a 7:05 pace.

Good MP 5M run at lunch (6:05 pace).  Achilles still a bit stiff but not bothersome.  Nice run in great 70 degree weather.

Nice easy 6.25M runin the early morning once again. Left achilles a bit still at the start, but felt much better as the miles ticked off. Looking forward to a nice run at lunch again today.

Had soccer practice for both of my kids teams (I am coaching) last night back to back.  6 year olds and 8 year olds...kids are actually looking ok, we will see for their first game this Saturday morning.  For the next 10 weeks, I don't have any Saturday's free (unless I get another dad/mom to coach, which will have to happen for the SGM!).

Awesome 7M run at lunch.  Weather was great...great pace...no achilles pain...can get much better than this.

Anyone need a place to stay for the SGM?  I have a coworker from here in IF who has a 3 bedroom condo rented, but 2 guys back out on him so he has two rooms available for ~$100 a night (Friday and Saturday).  Need to let him know before the end of the month or he is going to let his reservation go.

Good longer morning run.  Avg. 7:00 for run.  Achilles feeling a little less tight.  After runs, coached/refed 2 soccer games, walked around a dairy tour and played with my son at a swim party for two hours, so I spent all day in the sun!  I am tired today.
