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

Snowed in!  Lots of shoveling and playing in knee deep snow!

Went to the store early then did some chores before taking the family to the gym.  10K in 39:15 on the treadmill.  Afterwards a date with Kami to see "Arrival".  Not as good as I had heard. (Altra Impulse)

10K on the treadmill at the gym in 39:30 (6:21).  Cold outside again. (Fastwitch)

5 miles of cross county skiing at the park with Kami.  If we have to have snow, might as well use it.

Picked up my parents from their return bus trip to Boise.  Then had a crappy end to the day.

Was awakened at 4:30 by the snow plows clearing the streets in our neighborhood.  Chilled for a bit then went for a run in the neighborhood with Moxie and Kami on her fat bike.  7 miles meandering on the icy (but no longer clogged with snow) streets. Got home and found a car high centered in the driveway then a backed up and overflowing toilet upstairs.  (Guide 7)

4 miles of XC skiing at the park with Kami.  Beautiful sunny day...needed it because I feel like SAD is starting to sink in.

Took the day off from running and lifted at the gym with my family instead.  Felt good to rest the legs after the past two days of XC skiing.

7 miles in a balmy 16 degrees and fog outside with Moxie, the frost covered dog.  (Guide 7 2016)

Then home for a bit to wake up the kids and head to the gym for a run on the treadmills.  4 miles in 26:15. (Fastwitch)

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 2007-2015: 31,238 miles (2,963 - '07, 3706 - '08, 3760 - '09, 3659 - ‘10, 3725 - '11, 3468 – ’12, 3256 – ’13, 3395 – ’14, 3306 – ’15)

Mileage to date 2016: 3,171 miles (12/31/16).  Ran the equivalent distance from Yakima, WA to Miami, FL!

Total lifetime miles: 41,287 miles
