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

7:15am...crappy 3 mile run with Moxie.  Cannot get rid of the cough and nasal congestion (no pressure anymore) and my stomach was jacked up from the moment I stepped out the door.  Tired of this sickness. (Ride 3 2015)

3 miles in the afternoon after church in great weather.  (Boost)

4:30am...5 easy untimed miles with Moxie.  UYCW. (Ride 3 2015)

6 miles at lunch in 39:22 (6:33).  Includes 1 mile easy with DanS then into a moderate tempo for 5 miles in 31:30 (6:18).  First 2 at 6:15, then a bit slower as my stomach was churning, last mile tried to pick it back up.  No GPS to guide pace, just by watch and knowledge of the route. (Mirage 2)

3 miles after work at the park with Kami. (Boost)

So I have been on antibiotics for a week for a sinus infection, suppose to take care of it, right?  Nasal "issues" worse today than since I started this sickness period of 3 weeks now.  Ugly, constant flow, no pressure but cough and discharge.  Got out for a run on a beautiful day and my nose was better during the run.  Easy 6 miles in 45:30...unsure if driving all the way to Boise for COT HM is even worth the time and money. (Mirage Red)

Wow, what a great day!  Slept in after getting to Boise late last night then went to the greenbelt and the hotel to get my packet for tomorrow's race.  Saw my friend the RD and chatted for a while.  We then took Justin to "see about a girl" and meet up with a friend for the day...yikes he is growing up.

Back to the hotel to meet Erik (me) for a run on the course and Deborah (Kami and Katelyn) to walk on the greenbelt.  6 miles with Erik in 41 minutes easy and a few pickup miles.  (Fastwitch 6)

Spent some time chatting with Deborah before meeting Erik and Karin at Bardenay for lunch.  Fun time catching up.  We then walked to the capital building and looked around then had some dessert (Katelyn) and beers at Luku Ona.  Boise has such a great downtown!

We went to Julia Davis Park and looked at the rose garden waiting for Justin to show up.  Now for a night in the pool and hot tub before bed and the race tomorrow.  I can't remember such a relaxing and fun day with family and friends...rejuvenating!
