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

Legs are pretty sore and not looking forward to 9 hours in the car.  A long drive home, but good company with Reed, Lisa and their boys.  Thanks for ride!  Also stopped by friend's in Pleasant View before finishing the trek home.  Man, I was tired!

Still sore this morning so I slept in and went for a run at lunch.  5 miles in 40 minutes talking with Pat about racing, expectations, performance and recovery.  A nice easy run on sore legs. If we could have had this weather on Saturday...sub-2:30 for sure!

5 slow painful miles early on a warm morning before a long day at work.  Got 'em done, but it was slow.

5.6 miles in 42:41after a great day at work with my new counterpart with the Army.  A great guy who ran Boston in 2009 and has completed 12 marathons and 3 ironman competitions.  A fun run discussion life, running, work, kids, etc.   This should be a fun work interface that translates to some fun outside of work!

4.5 of the slowest miles I have ever run!  It was not that anything was particularly sore or strained, just no ooompf at all...nothing.  Holy crap, it almost hurt to run as slow as I was going.  I am still obviously very fatigued still from St. George.

No run later in the day due to work meetings...but they were good meetings. Unfortunately I did not get to run with the LTC afterwards.

No morning run, fatigued, tired, wasted...what ever you want to call it I wasn't getting out of bed!

5 miles at lunch in 36 minutes on a beautiful day with Pat B.  My legs felt great!!!  In fact, since St. George my left knee has not hurt...at all!!!  A great run and the reduced mileage is helping the recovery.   Back to more meetings on a very busy but very successful week at work!

9 miles in 1:14 early this morning with Andrea.  It started as a very nice morning and we ran 7 miles together around the SRL and east river greenbelt pathway.  I dropped her off at the 7 mile mark and ran another 2 miles as the temps dropped and the wind kicked up.  Not a bad run, energy level good and no pains at all. 

Now for a day off with the family!   We did a road trip to Montpelier to visit the Oregon Trail Museum and drove through Chesterfield to see the old pioneer village.  We then visited Kory and his family to check in on him.  While the kid's played and shared pizza, we had a very pleasant dinner with Kory and Rachelle and really enjoyed catching up with them.  A really great day!

12.45 mile run in 1:37 on a cool but nice morning with Andrea.  3 miles solo, then 9.45 with her around east Idaho Falls fueling with a PowerBar Gel.  I got my new pair of Brooks Launch shoes in the mail yesterday and wanted to try them out before I decide what to use my gift certificate from SGRC on...they were nice shoes, light, supportive and comfortable.
