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

No run today, coming down with a bad cold (started hitting last night)...ears plug, sore throat, headache, etc.  Plus we are driving home from Cottonwood today (9+ hours!) so no time.

No morning run, still feeling like crap.  I am heading out on travel this afternoon too...yeah air travel while sick is no fun.  Hopefully a short run before we leave if I feel well enough.

7M at lunch before leaving for my business trip.  Energy good, pace good (6:18 avg pace in 44:07), cold didn't bother me that bad.  Last nice day for some time to come based on the forecasts.

5.2M early this morning before meetings. Ran from the hotel to the Community Center track with 3 laps around the track then back. Average pace was about 7:04. Cool, windy and a light drizzle at times.

6.0M after a long day of meetings on a cool and windy afternoon. Ran to the Community Center track. 1-400M in 76, 1-800m in 2:42, 1-400m in 78 with 400m recovery then back to the hotel. Overall average for the run of 6:20 pace. Good run considering I am still somewhat congested and not over the cold I picked up.

Slept horribly last night, still feeling sick (sore throat, cough, headache).  

Got out the door on another cool and windy morning for a run to the Community Center, a few laps, then back to the hotel.  Overall a 7:40ish pace in 46 minutes.  

Another day of meetings then flying home tonight.

Got back late last night from travel, feeling crappy.  No run this monring as I still don't feel good, my wife had to go to work at 5:30am and it was cold outside...no motivation to run. 

Going into work for a bit to get some things cleared up/started then see what the day brings (work, home to sleep, run...not quite sure yet).

6.2M on a sunny but windy and cold day at lunch today.  Had to get out of the office, not feeling quite bad enough to go lie down and actually felt better running than just sitting at my desk.  Overall average pace of 6:55 with the last 3M faster than the first 3.  Not a bad run for being kinda sick.

Still somewhat under the weather so I decided to skip the morning run and sleep in to get some rest.  Cold mostly in the sinuses now, hopefully on its way out.  I will run longer at lunch today.

10M on a cool but calm and sunny day after work.  I ran the whole greenbelt loop from Freeman Park to Sunnyside Bridge and back.  Started easy, through in a few slow MP pickups along the way.  Fastest mile was mile 9 at 6:45.  Overall a good run, feeling a bit better (I hope I am on the mend).

As of 9/29, I can still only verify 3 other runners registered for Indy that have run under 2:50 in the past couple of years.  Still have time for a few of the past champs to sign up and I will have to wait and see if Chuck Engle comes back to run it again (champ last year in 2:37)...he usually doesn't even tell the RD until a day or two before the race.

Slept in this morning and waited until it warmed up before heading out for a run about 9:45.  15M in 1:45:45 on a nice running day down through Snake River Landing, around the greenbelt and to Freeman Park and back with an additional 1.75M through the neighborhood.  Ran into my old friend Nephi Gold at about 5M mark and ran 4 miles with him catching up (he is doing ultra trail runs now...Logan Peak, Jupiter Steeplechase and lives in Ogden since Nov. 08).  Then ran the rest of the way home trying to pick it up for a few miles then I just plain ran out of fuel and coasted in the last 2M.  Overall a decent end to the week that started off being sickly.
