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

Starting to come down with a cold.  A day of travel,so I missed my chance to get out before and early flight.  Once we got to the hotel, I was tired and felt iffy plus it was just not nice outside (cold, windy, snowy)...skipping the run today to just chill at the hotel.

Still not feeling the best this morning, so I slept in a bit and skipped the run before a day of meetings.  Got back to the hotel at a decent hour and went out for a longish run.  Ran straight out Common Rd. from the hotel through Roseville and back with a loop around the City building.  A total of 12 miles in 1:28 on a cool and windy day.  Going out was nice, coming back was tougher and colder straight into a 15 mph wind in 34 degrees.  (Mirage)

5:15am...5 easy miles on a cool and windy morning before another day of meetings.

Got done a bit early today with meetings.  All the rest of my group was able to switch flights to one leaving today, not me.  Ran 12 miles from the hotel out Wick Rd to Taylor then around the lake at Grace Lake Center and back on a sunny but cool and windy day in 1:31.  Stomach a bit upset but got it done.  I can't wait to get home tomorrow.

4.25 miles out on Wick Rd early before my flight home.  Warmer run, untimed and slow in the dark.  (Mirage)

Tired from traveling but did get in a massage today which I hope will help the hammy tightness.

It was cold, snowy and windy outside so we decided to hit the gym this morning.  I ran with Curt, Lynette and Marlin and had lots of fun talking during the workout.  A good progression run this morning starting easy for a few miles, then working up through MP and into a 4 mile hard tempo (between 5:49 to 4:57) for miles 6-10.  I did 2 quarters at 4:17 and cooldown down for a 12 mile run in 1:14.

A good run considering that I almost didn't go because of this cold I am still battling...it may be a very low key weekend after our church meeting this morning.
