Personal:

I ran for Alta high school and was trained by Coach Murphy, he is a great coach, one of the best there is. I ran for Southern Utah University for a year or two. I am currently a doctoral student at Bowling Green State University studying industrial organizational psychology. Right now my main goals are to stay healthy and run consistently.

Ran while Becca walked at the track. Felt good! Been feeling my achilles throughout the days more than I'd like over the past week- need to make the massage gun a more consistent part of my life.

Ran on some trails near Beccas work, got a little lost. Pretty good day, started out with some aches and pains in my legs but felt better as the run went on.

Warmed up a bit and did about 4 miles at 6:30 pace. One of the better runs I've had in a while. Felt great today, had a little asthma problems towards the end. Need to be better about taking my asthma meds and doing my nasal rinses.

Certainly a confidence building run, might run again tomorrow... would take it really easy if I do. Running on back to back days is typically not a good choice for my achilles. But if I want to get fast again it might need to happen eventually.

Ran at a park in westerville I found a couple weeks ago. It's got a nice trail. Took the first mile really easy. Felt pretty good once I got going.

Becca and I closed on our house today, I guess we are now officially columbus people. Lots of work to get to on the new house, but I might still go up to bowling green for the homecoming 5k on saturday, Dave Wottle will be there so it would be really cool to meet him.

Ran in my new neighborhood for the first time, there's a perfect mile resedential street loop and our house is on a street that cuts through it. I foresee many good workouts in my future just in this neighborhood. My achilles was acting up a bit during todays run, I need to get back to massaging it and doing calf raises every day. Also a lot of work to do around the house... and a lot of work to do for school and such. It will be a really good fall. Bengals have been breaking my heart the past two weeks, very disappointing after their super bowl run last year.

Ran while Becca walked on a trail near our house, perfect weather. There's very little traffic on the trails out here.

My lawnmower battery died about 80% through mowing the yard so I put it in the charger and ran a couple miles, then finished mowing and continued on my run. Felt good, perfect day for a run.
