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

6 miles at the gym with Justin this morning...tempo run.  1 mile warmup, 3 mile tempo in 16:15 (5:25 pace), 2 mile cooldown at slow MP.  Overall time of 36 minutes.  (Tangent)

Justin did great finishing his 3 mile tempo in 19:30!

Skipped my lunch run today, it was just too windy to want to battle it.  About to get VERY cold so morning treadmill runs (not sure about lunchtime runs) are on tap.

I just could not get out of bed this morning...tired, sore, stuff head, almost did not go to work.  I will try for a run on the TM at lunch or tonight when the kids are swimming.

4 miles on the TM in 24:09.  Spent half the morning in the dark at work due to power outages in SE Idaho! (Mirage)

5 miles at the gym while the kids were at swim team.  1 mile easy, 3 miles sub 6:00, .75M easy then the last 1/4 at 4:17.  Finished with some stretching then time to pick up the kids.  (Tangent)

4:30am...6 very easy miles on the TM at the gym since it is so cold outside.  Left hammy aching again a bit, so this was just a slow recovery in 41 minutes.  (Boost)

Been listening to a great Pastor on the radio, Pastor Allistar Begg.  Very uplifting messages with an awesome Scottish accent.  Message for today..."My times are in your hands."

I slept in a bit and hit the gym for a run...-4 degrees outside.

1 mile wu, 7 miiles at MP with some intervals thrown in.  8 miles in about 50 minutes.  After getting Jutin off to school, went back to the gym for another easy 4 miles in 26:20.  12 miles total for the day.  (Tangent)

Busy day today hosting our church's Pastoral candidate, going out to lunch with my girls and finishing up some Christmas decorating.

Justin and I ran in our friend Gray's Christmas Gift 5K from Bill's Bike and Run.  It was a cold and windy morning and the roads were really slick with fresh snow covering a sheet of ice.  Justin and I showed up early and ran a 2 mile warmup then I did 1 mile with Mike.  We started off the race pretty easy and by the 0.5M mark I was alone and ran the race at a MP effort on the slick surfaces. The last mile was slow as we were heading into a cold wind and I cruised in for the win.  Justin did great and ran 22 minutes and change for 7th OA and an new true PR on a hard day!  (Xodus)

Spent time talking with friends and at the coffee house next door with the youth of our church as they met our Pastoral candidate and her husband.  Busy day with our interview process...and shoveling snow!
