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

5 miles easy from the Murphy’s to Westminster and back early before breakfast and heading home.  Stopped by to visit some friends in Pleasant View on the way home.

4:30am...5 easy miles with Moxie. (Guide White)

Very busy day at work so no lunch run.  More projects piling on (good stuff) and staff gone this week so covering for them.  More retirements emminent, hard to see how we are going to cover all the work. 

I was going to run after work but Kami had tickets to the Chukars baseball game.  Watched the game sitting next two two old bosses right behind home plate.  Fun time.  Nice evening besides the smoke that rolled in heavy right near the end of the game...almost hard to see the ball.

4:45am...almost did not make it out the door, 5 easy miles with Moxie on a cool and smoky morning before the rain. (Guide White)

5 miles at lunch.  Beautiful...sunny, great temp, rain knocked down smoke.  Almost did not go due to busyness, but glad I did. (Tangent)

Sad and a bit mad...Justin's calf is bothering him and he is thinking that he may not want to do XC, quitting before it even starts because it is hard.  Struggling to help him stay motivated through injury (which his calf has bothered him a bit nearly every season), his coaches and trainers are helping him get healed up and he likes the team...but still says 'he is not feeling it'.  Not a reason to throw in the towel.

6:15am..8 miles with Moxie in the neighborhood.  Then some time getting things organized with our home repairs (helped install the new suntube), checking in with insurance, etc.  Then we drove to Rexburg to watch the first XC race of the season, Katelyn did great!  (Guide White)

A good day, got to talk to Justin too.  He is loving college and in better spirits about the XC team.
