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

I took Moxie out on a cool morning for a shorter quick workout.  4 miles in just over 24 minutes for a good MP workout.  Going to hopefully go out later with kid(s) to do some form work.  (Ride 3 2015)

2 miles in the evening with Katelyn.  1 mile wu and cd, 1 mile of stride checks and striders.  (Boost)

Slept in and took Moxie out for an easy run along Sunnyside on a nice morning for 7 miles.

Our family went to Freeman Park for a workout.  1 mile easy, then some striders in the grass and running the "W" on the Tiger Grizz course mostly easy.  Saw some other runners there too getting ready for Friday's race.  3.5 miles total running.  (Launch 2)

4 miles on a nice afternoon before dinner.  Slow and easy, a bit stiff. (Fastwitch 6)

Stiff and tired this morning, so I skipped the run and focused on stretching and foam rolling.  Felt much better afterwards. Try to run later today.

4.25 miles on the desert in 29 minutes.  Nice day, cool and sunny.  Ear pressure during the run...either the wind and high pressure or starting to get a cold. (Mirage Red)

4:30am...5 very easy miles with Moxie along Sunnyside.  Left HHT talking to me today.  (Ride 3 2015)

6 miles in 43 minutes on a beautiful day at lunch.  A zone out run, no focus on the run, my mind was on work and other things.   Before I knew it I was done (didn't want to go back in!).  (Mirage Red)

4:45am...5 easy miles with Moxie on a nice morning.  (Launch 2)

I was going to run at lunch but got stuck waiting for meetings.  I will try after work.  I did not have time nor the inclination after work, instead spent time with my family.

5am...met Curt for a run and we had a good time catching up on things.  6.5 miles with Curt at around a 7:30ish pace.  I finished off 3.5 miles in the neighborhood for 10 miles in 1:16 (7:38 AP).  Good early run before a busy day...Tiger Grizz XC meet this afternoon.  (Launch 2)

I ran the Thirteenpointone HM today, still one of the toughest races around.  Smaller crowd but great weather.  Came down to a race between Pat B. and I again.  

2 mile warmup, feeling ok (hammy talking) but gut doing ok (I did not want a repeat of last year).  

At the gun, it was Pat and I.  I went out easy and stayed within about 2-3 seconds of Pat for the first 3 flat miles. Then the uphill...1200 feet in 2.5 miles.  I walked a couple of times just to save energy and wear on my legs (nearly as fast as trying to run).  Pat beat me to the top by about 30 seconds (KOM!) at 5.5 miles, but I quickly started to reel him in on the downhill and by mile 8.5 I caught and passed him.  He picked it back up on the rollers and then at mile 10 my hammystring tendonitis kicked in and my left leg kinda went numb and I slowed just enough for him to catch and pass me (it was a race between two old crippled guys and whose injury would surface first, my hammy or his calf...I lost!).  I stayed within about 10-20 seconds for the next few miles then tried to push and closed the gap a bit but Pat is strong and held on for the win by 10 seconds.  (Fastwitch 6)

Nice smaller race with a VERY tough hill...still think I should have stayed in bed instead!  

Overall by Age graded results for this race.  Pat B at 80%, me at 78% then Lynette at 75%.  Jeremy, Tim and Ron all ran well too.  

Now for a full day at church while Kami and friends go to Jackson to cheer on friends at the finish for LOTOJA.
