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 25+ years with two children (19 and 16).

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

7:30am...6 easy miles with Moxie on a foggy morning.  Honesty run for me. (Ride)

Couldn't get out of bed this morning so I skipped my morning run.  I went out for a lunch run in the sunshine on a 50/50 dry and icy pathway around the river.  Really slow today.  (Mirage)

I took Moxie out for an easy run along the path in relatively warmer weather.  6 miles slow.

 

4 miles in the late afternoon before the sun went down, warm out!  (Ride)

 

A quick review of my running stats (for my own validation) since I started training for marathons and really tracking mileage in 2005. Prior to 2005, I didn't track mileage and ran at most 3 times a week for about 2-5M each time for the previous 5 years (2000-2004) as I was more focused on weight lifting and tennis in this period. Estimate that I ran about 3,000 miles total prior to making running my central athletic focus in 2005.

 

Mileage pre 2005: 3,000 miles (est.)

 

Mileage 2005-2006: 3,878 miles (Coolrunning.com)

 

Mileage 2007-2012: 21,282 miles (2963-'07, 3706-'08, 3760-'09, 3659-‘10, 3725 - '11, 3468 – ‘12)

 

Mileage to date 2013: 3,256 miles (12/31)

 

Total lifetime miles: 31,416 miles

I slept in and went out around 7:30 with Moxie for 2.5 miles around the neighborhood before meeting the crew for a run.  Met Gray, Craig, Andrea, Marlin, and Tim at the corner...ran 6 miles with Craig and 10 miles with Gray.  Ended up with 14 miles in 1:50 on very slick surfaces...snow covered ice for most of the run.

Happy New Year.

I went to the gym with Justin and we did a hill workout.  1 mile easy then 0.5 - 0.75 mile hill repeats at slow MP, ranging from 2% to 7% incline.  My last mile was a fast mile at sub 5:40...my legs are trashed.  (Tangent)

I ran 5 easy miles with Moxie then picked up Justin and we went to the store for the group run...a big crowd today.  We ran 6 miles together around the southern greenbelt loop then up to Broadway.  11 miles total in just under 1:30.  I am tired.  (Ride)
