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.

Support my wife's endeavor to do long distance road biking and her renewed interest in running! Keep biking more with her as cross training maybe do a Century ride.

 

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.

Married for 24 years with two children (18 and 15).

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 to rest my intestinal track and get over my issues from the race yesterday.  We spent a family day walking around the East Idaho State fair for about 4 hours in very windy conditions.  I am so glad that we didn't run the race today and that I took a day off, the wind was given me a severe headache.

Slept in and went out at sunrise in 33 degree temps.  10 miles in 1:12 through Snake River Landing to the greenbelt and John's Hole Bridge and back.  No GI issues, new felt most good so a nice recovery run on my day off.

3 miles easy around 7:30pm on a glorious evening just to burn off some anstiness.  My left knee and shin were a bit twingy, but I think it was due to the shoes, so the Defyance are now officially retired! 

Wow, what a game last night, I wasn't sure if BSU could pull off the late game magic again but they seem to just have a will to win!  Way to represent Idaho with a big win back east against Va. Tech!

Got up a bit late but still got in an easy 6 miles on a chilly morning (35 degrees).  Left leg was better and wearing good shoes helped a lot.  Back to work, hopefully less stressful than last week. 

6 miles at lunch in 46 minutes on a beautiful day, sunny and temps in the high 60's.  Just nice and easy, my left knee was a bit twingy but not bad.  (Black Ride)

6 miles early and easy on a warm morning.  Left knee a lot better again today.  Got done just before the thunderstorm hit...lots of big lightning and some rain!  I will try to get a run in at lunch depending on work schedule.  No run at lunch due to meetings and thundershowers outside!  Maybe this evening...

I just talked to the elite coordinator at St. George marathon and she indicated that the Master's champ from last year, Pepi Peterson, is running again!  Now to see if I can try and challenge him for the Master's title, but that 2:24 he ran last year is tough! 

Went out after dinner and helping with kid's at 7pm for a quick 5 miles in 30:40 (6:08 pace) which felt really good and relaxed.  Nice weather after the heavy rains this afternoon!

6 miles easy on a cool morning.  Legs felt good, run was normal recovery pace. 

4.15 miles at lunch on a cold, windy, rainy day with stomach issues in 30:15..yuck!

Slept in and went out for my run around 10am after going to the dentist.  10.1 miles in 1:14:30 on a crappy day (cold, windy, cloudy) and with more damn intestinal issues.  I had to stop at 6.5 and 7.5 to alleviate issues.  I was thinking of going longer but by the time I ran by my house I was done.  

I'm beginning to think it might be some lactose intolerance (which I have never had) but it seems worse after I have a bowl of cereal for breakfast. I will work on changing my diet in the mornings and see if that helps.

7 miles in 56 minutes at 4:30am on a nice but cool morning.  Nothing special just easy, no intestinal issues but knee was a bit twingy.  

Taking the Scouts on a 7 mile round trip hike to lower Palisades lake today, should be a nice day and fun to spend the time with the boys.   Left at 8am, got home a 5pm...a total of 4.5 hours of hiking on a great day!  The boys did great and had loads of fun (but very tired legs and feet!).
