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

Slept in and skipped the early morning run.  Had a great day at church with a great Bible study and sermon about John 21. 

Went out for an easy run of 5 miles.  Wore the Vibrams and IPod, first time for both of these in a while.  5 miles in 37 minutes.

Out for a family run before dinner.  Justin and I finished off 2.5 miles while the girls and Moxie did 2.  A great time!  Justin ran the last 0.1M to home at 5:22 pace!

4:30am...6 slow easy miles with Moxie.  Right abductor twingy a bit at the beginning of the run but it was ok at the end.  Warm with a bit of rain during the run. (Kinvara)

6.5 miles in 47 minutes flat on a nice but windy day at lunch around the greenbelt. Legs were good, just a bit heavy so an easy run.  (Cortana)

4:30am...6 slow easy unmotivated miles with Moxie.  It was 51 degrees outside but it felt much cooler...fall is in the air (it is supposed to be 35 degrees in IF tomorrow, it was 29 degrees on the way to the desert this morning).  Hammy and abductor were ok, my right foot had a twinge yesterday and I felt that at the start of the run.  Sucks getting old and tired as I near the end of the training season.  (Ride 2012)

4 miles in 28 minutes, more of a mental than a phsyical run.  (Cortana)

4:40am...5.25 miles with Moxie. Slow, easy, unmotivated, tired, cold (43 degrees) and late so I had to go short in order to get Justin to XC practice.

No lunch run today due to work conflicts.

4:30am...10k with Moxie through SRL.  Ran into Marlin and ran together for about a mile.  Nice easy run on a cold morning (35 degrees) with gloves, jacket and earband.  Brrr!

6.3 miles at lunch in aroung 41 minutes.  Easy first mile then into mid MP range.  If I got too fast I would get a bit of a twinge in my abductor, so I stayed fairly even around 6:15-6:25 pace.  Overall average including the warmup mile was 6:25.  (Cortana)

Justin has his XC relay race this afternoon, looking forward to seeing how he does running with his team.

I helped at the XC meet today warming up the team (~1 mile) as the coach was busy with the event coordination.  Warming up 40 middle schoolers is like hearding cats and a lot of talking to yourself.  The kids did great today!

My abductor was really sore during the warmups.  I might skip my morning run tomorrow.

No run this morning, I just couldn't get up.  Ok as my abductor is still sore from yesterday and I will go a bit longer at lunch today.

Very proud of Justin and his team at yesterday's High Five Relay race!

Now this is my kind of study!

10 miles at lunch in 1:15 around the entire greenbelt loop.  Saw David J. out on the run and we made plans to run tomorrow morning.  A pretty pathetic run.  Had to make two pit stops, my abductor started to hurt aroun mile 6.5, my intestinal issues were present for most of the run and I felt like I had to puke for the last 3 really slow miles.  Got it done anyway.  (Cortana)

6:30am...met David J. for a long run this morning.  Ran pretty easy through SRL and around the greenbelt and back to my house for 12 miles in around 1:26. One PowerBar Gel at mile 9 with a water stop.

We picked up Justin and ran for 4 miles averaging 8:00 pace with some hard effort thrown in.  A quick drink of water and we were on our way.

I dropped off Justin and grabbed Moxie for 4 more miles.  A total of 20 miles in 2:28.  Overall a good run and much better than yesterday's run. (Ride 2012)
