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

Went out for a run in 3 inches of new snow and some coming down in big fluffy flakes.  3 miles with Moxie, then 4.3 more miles with Andrea.  It was warm (25 degrees) and fun to run in the snow even though it was really slow.  A good first real winter run!

5 miles in the dark and cold on the icy roads, 3 solo then 2 with Moxie.  Heading back to work after a week of vacation...not too excited about it but it has to be done and it should be a busy day.  (Fireblades)

6.1 miles at lunch on a cold but clear day.  A little wind made it chilly but it was a good run on the slick pathway around the river at a relaxed pace due to the footing.  Good midday break from the first day back at work.  (Ride Red)

5 miles in the cold and on the slightly icy pathway with Moxie.  Ran early so Kami could get off to work...almost didn't make it out of bed but somehow got my feet on the floor and then out the door.  (Fireblades)

I wanted to go for another run today but I got slammed at work so I couldn't go at lunchtime.  In the afternoon we had conferences at school for the kids, then afterwards I spent time with Justin instead of getting out...then it was just too late to go.  So, only one run but some fun time with my son instead....a good trade.

No morning run...just couldn't get out of the warm bed to face the cold and my left hammy was acting up so I didn't go.  This chilling out mode is hard on my mental state...torn between guilty feeling of not running and knowing that the break will be beneficial in the long run.

6 miles at lunch in a snow storm...but at least it was warmer.  The pathway was a bit slick so I wore my ice joggers which helped.  It was actually a good run!  2 miles with Pat and the rest solo made for a good break today.

Decided to stay warm and get some speed work in today, so I went to the gym at 4:15am.  1 mile easy at 7:00 pace, then hit the acceleator.  1 mile at 5:45, then then next 4 miles were at a faster pace for 0.5M with a 0.25 M slower segement (~6:15pace) ramping up for the next 0.25M (~6:00 pace) then back to fast (~5:40-5:00 pace).  Good run, overall time of 37:40 for a 6:04 average pace for the run.  (Launch)

6 miles in the slush on the pathway around the river.  A slow tender run as both hammy's were tight and cold and I didn't fuel enough today due to work meetings.  So, my last 2 miles were really slow...plus dodging slush puddles didn't help.  (Ride Red)

10 miles in 1:02:20 (6:16 average pace) on the TM at the gym this morning.  It was fairly warm outside, but very icy due to temps and rain/slush so I stayed inside.  2 miles easy, then the remainder near goal MP with some fast pickups included.  Everything felt pretty good this morning, it is just hard to stay motivated for an hour on the TM...people watching at the gym and an IPOD can only do so much to stave off the boredom of running in place.  Now for a day off to do some shopping, decorating and various chores.

14 miles in 1:54:40 outside on the slick pathways in 22 degree weather.  2.6M with Moxie before meeting up with the group for the rest of the run.  At around 13.75 miles into the run while we were in my neighborhood, Andrea took a fall and landed on her knee and got a good bump.  Dang I miss the warm weather and clear roads.
