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 25+ years with two children (19 and 16).

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

Got out a bit later for 5 miles with Moxie on warm and windy morning (50 degrees!).  When I returned home, I grabbed Justin and we went out for 4 miles.  Started easy then he pushed the pace.  I couldn't catch him in the last push...he is getting fast!

5 miles at lunch on a nice morning in a slow 37 minutes.  Just crusing and my left hammy was really tight. (Mirage)

4:30am...6 easy untimed miles with Moxie out on a cool and windy morning.  My left hammy is still very tight and a bit painful this morning on the run.  I am registered for a half marathon this weekend but am not sure that it is race ready right now.  Still runnable, but not for a race.  (Ride)

4:30am...5.5 easy untimed miles with Moxie.  Cool morning, still have a tight hammy. (Ride)

5.25 slow miles around the greenbelt on a cold and windy day.  Hammy about the same.  HM is 99% off due to this issue...too bad, looking forward to this fun race.  They have embroidered personalized duffle bags for the participants...have to figure out how to get mine!  (Mirage)

I went to the gym to do  speed workout with Justin...he did awesome!  1 mile easy, then 1000m @ 5:30, 1200m @ 5:24, 1200m @ 5:10, 1600m @4:47, 800m @ 4:17.  A tough workout.  Including recovery and cooldown a total of 6 miles, 5:47 AP.

After dropping off the kids at school, back to the gym for a few more miles.  4 miles in 26:20 running next to and talking with Marlin...glad I went back, loved catching up with him.  Now my hammy is reall tight, no race tomorrow, sorry Lance.  Instead going to watch state XC meet at Freeman Park, first time in IF since 2007.  (Boost)

Up early for a group run around the greenbelt through SRL with Curt, Marlin and Lynette.  While we we running around the river we ran with Mike Kirk who was in town for the state XC meet (he son is running in it).  Overall 11 miles in 1:27.

Went home and grabbed Justin to go run at the Bill's Bike and Run group run through SRL.  6 miles in 46 minutes.

Then Justin and I went over to watch the state XC meet, watched the 4A and 5A meets.  IF didn't have their best day.  Elijah Armstrong won his third state title in a row with an amazing 15:45 on a hard course.  Fun running day!
