Short-Term Running Goals:

Keep on running, enjoy it for the sake of running, relax and enjoy life...de-stress.  Stay fit as I enter retirement in < 4years.

No racing, retired.

Long-Term Running Goals:

Keep running until this old body says no, running for fun.

Personal:

 I started running competitively in 2005 and ran my first marathon in 2005. Now retired from competitive racing.

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

Russian champion tries Crocs, commits to racing a marathon in them

Nikolay Chavkin in the video below did 3x1000, first two in Adidas carbon-fiber models, the last one in Crocs. Surprised by the result (2:52, 2:52, 2:50) with the fastest interval done in Crocs, he committed to racing a marathon in Crocs if the video gets 42K likes and 195 comments (for 42 km 195 m, the marathon distance). Nikolay's current marathon PR is 2:14:00. The video was created by a Russian sporting goods store chain. Their moto is "more sports - brighter life", which we think is wonderful, and also deserves a Like. If you want to see a fast marathon in Crocs, go to the video and click the Like button. And make sure to share it with your friends.

Planning for a triple???  Maybe but then will have to justify it with a larger burger and several beers!

Nachos, beers, margaritas...but no additional run.

Exciting new opportunity was offered to me today, start hopefully next month.  Really perked up my spirits, work mojo, mood and  most of all faith and self confidence.

Another night of poor sleep, up at 3:30am.  Got out the door at 4:30 for a 7 mile run.  This was probably one of the best and most inspirational runs I have had in over a year. (React Black)

4 miles in the late evening. (Fastwitch White)

A bit cold this morning for which I was not mentally ready to deal with so skipped the early run and went to work early.

7 miles at lunch, warmer but still cool. (React Blue)

No after work run as I am taking my team out for our new member's birthday recognition.

Drove to SLC to attend the wedding for the daugther of one of my best friends from college.  When there, attended the Border Wars XC meet (IFHS was running at the race).

Very fun wedding (youthful, non-traditional) and great to catch up with old friends.

Went to breakfast with friends, then went to Sugarhouse park to walk with Kami and Rob joined us.  Then we had coffee with Justin's old roommate and his dad.

Later went to a great Italian restaurant with the Murphy's and caught up.  A really great weekend.
