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.

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 from competitive racing.

Married for 26 years with two children (20 and 17).

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

7M really easy early on a nice morning, cool but clear and calm.  Just easy nothing special to report. 

Putting up Christmas lights today since the weather is nice and I would rather do it while I can feel my fingers.

11M bike ride with Kami while the kids were at a church activity in the early afternoon.  Wanted to enjoy the nicer weather before it goes away.  Will count it as 3M easy run.

7M early on a cool, calm and clear morning.  Started off really slow and kinda progressed faster but still moving slow.  At 4.5M I was passed by a bicyclist which was finally some motivation to get moving.  So I started running faster to keep up with him and at 5.5M I passed him back and he never caught me again!  I was running in the 6:20ish range for this mile and it felt much better than the 7:30 I was doing before and finished off the rest of the run at around a 6:40ish pace.  (Statos 2)

6.5M at lunch on a beautiful day!  Sunny, warmer and no wind.  Good paced run (6:35) with some pickups thrown in, but nothing really fast.  I did pass Pat B. during the run, not something anyone says very often (he was a bit under the weather and just running easy, but still!).  Great day for a run.  (Stratos 1)

Leave on a business trip tomorrow and I hope I can get a few decent runs in.

4M really early before heading to the airport. (T3)

After getting home, spent time putting up Christmas lights in the good weather.  Then I went to the pool with the kids while Kami worked out, so no second run today.

11M early on a breezy morning before family got going.  Pool again with the kids then a day just spending time with the family. (T3)

Most likely heading to SLC/Ogden tomorrow to get out of town, visit some friends and take Kami to get fitted for running shoes.

14M solo this morning in calm but cold (19 degrees) weather.  It actually wasn't too bad due to lack of wind and wearing my slightly heavier gear today.  Felt strong for the entire run and ended so I could get back home with the family to start off the day (slept in a little today!).  (T3)

No going to SLC today due to issues with our mini-van, so instead will spend time with family today and probably go to a movie (and maybe look at cars, our van is starting to be more trouble...about $600 in repairs to fix the current problems, but it is paid for!).
