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

Calves still sore this morning...couldn't get up early because they were so stiff. Decided to go out a little later this morning so I had to go short. Pushed it a bit and it felt better, but still an easy run.

Easy 8.15M run this morning...calves still a bit stiff, but felt better the longer into the run that I got. Will try to do a faster run at lunch today.

Good slower MP (6:24) run at lunch in pretty windy conditions...but the temp was perfect.  Calves feeling better, left one still a bit tight.

Very easy early morning 5.1M run.  Calves stiff again and not too motivated this morning, so slow and shorter with plans for a faster longer run at lunch.

Moderately paced 7M run at lunch (6:30 pace, slow MP). Pretty easy and controlled throughout, calves still noticable but getting better. Just kind of put it in cruise mode today.

Easy early morning 6M run.  Calves feeling better, averaged 7:05 after first warmup mile.  Getting colder around here, so I am having to dress up more for these early runs...long sleeves and gloves.

Nice 6M MP (6:25) trail run in the desert today.  Nice temp, fun running the trails instead of the streets,but a bit windy coming back in.  Calves felt better for this run.

Shorter easy 5M run this morning. A bit tired as my wife was up quite a few times last night (sick), so a little late and not too motivated. Will try to get a longer (7M) run in at lunch today.

Nice easy cruise pace 7M run (6:31) at lunch. Overall felt ok, but I was a little lethargic so this cruise/slow MP was about all that I could muster today.

Slow  6M run early this morning.  Had a hard time getting up and had little energy, so the time for this run was slow, but at least I got the miles in.  Will try for a better run at lunch today. 

No lunch run today due to wife not feeling good and needing to take my daughter to school, then appointments, etc.  So, a light slow day today.

Didn't feel like getting up this morning, but I did get out for a 9.3M because I knew I wouldn't get out this afternoon due to schedule and weather.  Slow run (7:00 pace).  Heading to SLC tomorrow and Monday for a dr. appointment for our daughter, so don't know about running this next week (work is slammed next week with visitors and no lunch runs!).
