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

6am...warmer out than I thought it would be but very windy.  Went out with Moxie and ended up doing an easy tempo run.  6 miles in just under 36 minutes...working off some frustration and it felt good to run harder outside for the first time in a while.  Hammy was there but not bad this morning.

Now to watch the NYC marathon live on TV!  Go Meb and Ryan Vail!

Inspirational inteview on Runner's World from Meb about his race and his willingness to keep running and cheering others on.  A great athlete!

5:30am..took Moxie out for a run on cool morning. I was just running easy when one of the fast gals in town ran by us on a tempo run, so I had to keep up until our turn around.   Afterwards, got home and took Justin out for a run.  2.5 miles of tempo (just under 7:00 pace) and a total of 5 miles with him in 37 minutes.  So, a 10 mile morning!  (Ride)

15 degrees outside and I overslept...off to the gym.  Only had time for a 6 mile progression run in 37:40.  Last minute about 5:30 pace.  Tired and hammy a bit tight.  (Boost)

4:30am...7 miles with Moxie on a decent morning outside...31 degrees and a light snow.  Left hammy really tight.  As I left for work the weather was getting worse so I decided not to bring my clothes for a lunch run (plus I am likely busy enough not to get it in). But when I got out on the desert, the weather is beautiful!  Dang.

I was flying solo tonight (wife and son at Confirmation class, daughter at ballet) so after running an errand, I went out for a 4 mile run in 31 minutes on warmish and calm evening.  It is still loud along Sunnyside at 8pm!  That's ok, I wasn't totally alone, my hammy was talking to me! (Mirage)

4:15am...6 slow miles with Moxie on a warm morning with a light rain.  Hammy still tight, trying to get a massage scheduled.  This is getting old.  (Ride)

6 easy miles around the greenbelt at lunch on a warmish day.  Felt ok, hammy there but not as bad.  (Mirage)

It was warm outside, but very windy.  Justin wanted to go to the gym for our speed workout.  1 mile wu, 1200m @ 5:21 pace, 1600 @ 5:13, 1200 @ 5:03, 800m @ 4:55, 800m @ 4:50.  Cooldown.  6 miles total in 34:45.  Justin did a great speed workout too...800/1200/800/800/400 at 5:50ish AP...his first puke workout!

After dropping the kids off at school, Kami and I went back to the gym and I ran another 6 miles in 38 minutes, including mile 5 fast with the last quarter sub 5:00 pace.  I am tired and hungry!  (Boost)

5am...11 miles in 1:24 through SRL and around the greenbelt with Curt and Lynette on a nice morning.  Now off to a swim meet for my daughter and a run later today with Justin.  (Boost)

Went for a run with Justin and Moxie through SRL on a beautiful afternoon after homework and housework.  Easy to start, then Justin wanted to do fartlek's...I had a hard time keeping up with him!  He hit sub 5:30 pace during the last kick of most of the intervals.  His 5K split back was between 20:30 and 21 minutes for a negative split 10K!  10K total in 47 minutes.  (Tangent)
