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

The weather was nasty outside so Kami and I went to the gym after church.  1 mile wu, 5K in 16:10 (5:13 average) for the workout I didn't get yesterday. Recovery, 1 mile at 5:13 then a cool down. 10K in 35:20 for an overall average of 5:42.  (Kinvara)

4:30am...an easier workout at the gym.  I was right about freezing and windy outside and with the rain yesterday I was worried about black ice outside.

1 mile wu, 7 miles at easy MP.  Oveall 8 miles in 50:30 for a 6:19 average pace.  (Fastwitch)

About time to retire 3 pairs of shoes...ouch. 

5 easy miles at lunch in 36 minutes on a nice day for a run...a bit cool but sunny and only a light breeze, still shorts weather! (Cortana)

4:30am...fighting the beginning of a head cold so I decided to hit the gym rather than outside this morning.  10K in 40 minutes for an easy run.  (Cortana Black)

I retired my Kinvara and Fastwitch yesterday, they were really showing the mileage in feel and wear.

No running today, sick at home with a bad cold...headache, upset stomach, chills and bodyaches.  Ugh.

4:30am...10K at the gym in just under 41 minutes.  Feeling much better than yesterday but wanted to have options to stop depending on how I felt (wanted to at least make 5 miles, was in question early).  (Mirage Black)

4 miles with Moxie after work in 26 minutes for a nice easy outdoor run.  This run takes Moxie over 2000 miles of running with me since we got her just over 2 years ago...she is a running dog!  (Cortana white)

A busy day today, I will see if I feel good enough and can fit in a second run.  Giving a clinic with Gray tonight at the running store on winter running tips.

A 10K on the TM at the gym in 40 minutes.  Slower start, finished at easy MP.  Ran next to Marlin, Rex and Lynette for good times with good friends.  (Mirage)

3 miles with Moxie then dropped her off to see if any of the group was meeting.  Ran another 8 miles solo but saw Lynette and Andrea out.  Cold, slow and unmotivated run this morning.  11 miles in 1:25.
