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

5:30am...having a hard time getting motivated to run in the cold and dark so far in 2019.  After checking the weather and seeing it was 24 degrees, decided to squeeze in a short run before a busy day at work.  4 miles with Moxie easy. (Guide White)

Not very motivated so far in 2019, maybe due to the cold and dark but really affecting my energy for running and work (and life).  SAD is getting me again this year, first time in about 3 years I remember being this down.

Winters are always tough, particularly where you are. I was thinking a few winters ago that you did a lot of treadmill running when it got really cold. Of course, I think this is when you were training for races so the motivation was somewhat different (I'll take a look). Not that the gym is that exciting but at least it's warm.

I never know if forcing oneself to exercise is better for SAD or worse. Best wishes.

From Jason D on Wed, Jan 09, 2019 at 21:13:07 from 73.144.88.57

Upon further inspection of previous blog entries from the last few years around this time, it seems you are a sensible human being and winters aren't your thing, you need to get to retirement, and move to St George :-)

7am...10K on the TM at the gym in 39:30 (6:21 AP).  Good run though I wished Justin would have run outside with me.  Taking him to SLC to start spring semester at college. (Tangent)

Dropping off Justin really sucked, both from the perspective of missing him, but also how it ended in a fit of stress and not a good end to the day. Had a good lunch with the Murphy's but then the stress at his dorm really was a downer.  Not liking this phase of life with our kids and my work...mid-life kinda sucks, let's get to  6 years from now so they are done with school and I can retire.

4 miles after getting back from SLC just to stretch out my legs.  Listened to about 5 Malcolm Gladwell Revisionist History Podcasts on the trip. (Glide Green)

It was warmer this morning, but it was super slick outside due to a freezing rain.  This combined with a sore lower back led me to skip early run.  This month is a loss for a good training month due to weather, illness and motivation.  Need to try to find motivation as I need to burn off work stress better.

Dropped off the dog and went back out, hit a icy spot and took my first fall of the winter.  On the way back it started to snow (lightly then heavier) which started covering the ice.  Cut it short at 14 miles as it was getting too risky.

Sorry to hear about that.

A boss of mine once showed us a study by Boeing about retirement age vs age of death. The earlier people retired, the longer they lived. People that worked past a certain age (I think it was 67) were statistically more likely to die before retirement. Not saying work caused the deaths, but still interesting.

From jtshad on Tue, Feb 05, 2019 at 11:48:52 from 141.221.191.225

Sobering thought. I am going as soon as I can...6 years and counting down (just around 1,000 days of work). 401K recovered and coupled with pension (hard to find anymore) and SS (assuming it is still there, luckily the small portion of my retirement) I should be good to go.

Katelyn has a dance today and going to my coworkers funeral, sad.  Making my focus on retiring as soon as I am able more meaningful so I can get on with my next phase of life using my 10 hours a day in a different intentional manner.  I will still do my curent job to the best of my ability to have impact/significance and glorify God, but looking forward to doing different things in the next phase.  Target location is looking very feasible right now based on planning and calcs pending evening moderate returns of 401(k) for the next 6 years.  That along with pension, savings and SS should make it dobale.

From jtshad on Sat, Feb 09, 2019 at 15:30:19 from 75.174.42.10

Right now, St. George Ut. Love the active lifestyle, miles of trails/pathways, cheaper cost of living (taxes, energy, etc.) and some decent housing prices in the area including a 55+ community that is pretty nice. Warm weather but still seasons, less cold temps and a shorter "very hot" season than AZ.

Could be worn shoes. You have some solid mileage on some of those, particularly those old 2011 Xodus, which would be somewhat dead anyway given their age. Could be the treadmill too if you aren't running at much of an incline.

From jtshad on Thu, Feb 14, 2019 at 06:58:52 from 141.221.191.225

Yeah, planning on changing all the shoes out soon, just trying to get through the brunt of the crappy weather first, probably won't make it that far.

4 miles in about 4 inches of fresh snow.  Tired of winter. (Xodus)  My lower back was really sore (sharp pain) this morning.  Took a nap after church.

4 miles cross country skiing.  The storm stopped and it turned beautiful outside, warm and sunny.  Pretty good skiing at the city park.  Nice to not have to drive 1+ hours to get to some trails.  Skied with our friends the Holliday's for most of the time, nice to have the company and get to know them better.

Went to go see "Turn It Up", directed and produced by a local guy about a 1985 rock band in Idaho Falls.  Thought it would be fun to see a movie with our rock music and about my hometown...was I wrong.  It was horrible and filled with drug use and profanity and had no plot.  Too bad this is the best memory this guy has of his past in the 80's.  He seemed really proud of it and the other band members represented on the screen were in the auidence, it made them look like total buffoons, I would have been pretty pissed it is was me.

From jtshad on Fri, Apr 05, 2019 at 07:05:37 from 174.27.51.24

Yep, getting the whole house siding replaced! Took some time last fall to work it out with the insurance then waited for winter to end. It will be nice to have the projects completed soon.

Thanks, took me longer this year than for the past several years. Just enjoying running and not "training" so the mileage counter is fun to watch but not track.

Hope all is well. heard the weather has been cold and wet lately.

We have had a lot of rain and flooding. I wasn’t able to pick up a class, so it looks like last summer: 4 months of running, cycling, and reading. We are going to look at some areas where we might want to live as I think next year will be our house year.

You are one of those strange creatures who seem unaffected by heat and humidity. You are lucky. I am thinking of our run together, which wasn't too hot but very humid. Safe travels.

Running around D.C. was one of my favorite experiences- enjoy!

5am...6 miles from the hotel to the DC Mall and into downtown and back. Mall full of runners early! (Supernova Green)

More meetings at HQ then moving to Alexandria for a working group the rest of the week.  Took the water taxi from the Wharf to Alexandria.  Great day professionally (really good meetings!), personally (opportunity to mentor a young guy new to our group) and spiritually (great faith conversation with an elisted Air Force man at the hotel bar).  Wow, a good day.

More meetings today.  No second run instead had a beer and dinner with my coworker from ID, Vic, who was also in town.  My daughter was excited that we ate at her favorite restaurant here, Pines of Florence.

For the past 2.7 years, I have been performing in two job roles at my work.  My "old" job was finally posted today.  Bitter sweet as I like the program and people, but will be nice to focus on one job and learn more about other programs and activities.  Maybe I can finally get my mind settled and focused again as the two different and distinct jobs has been getting harder to balance effectively.  Hopefully now I can focus on being a more engaged and effective supervisor too (at least to my own expectations, boss indicates he has been happy with what I have been doing but need to do more in the long run).

Spent the run trying to process what is going on with our society.  After listening to the memorial yesterday, dealing with work and family pressures, nagging running pains (and thus lack of inspiration in my runs which used to be my release) and now reading/hearing about the 3rd and 4th mass shooting in our country in a week, I struggle at times to see how we as a society honor God or each other.   Maybe my mood recently is just midlife crisis related and realizing that my family is changing and work is less enjoyable/motivational, but looking at the bigger picture society and all the hate (and justification of that hate) is very depressing.  I hardly want to get up and don't find much joy...lately my highlight of the day is the evening beer.

Glad I got the run in early, doing yardwork in the blazing sun and heat is hard work and I would not want to run this afternoon.

Jeff, reading about Blue Angels reminded me of the Ramstein aircraft disaster where I was as a spectator (7 years old) with my brother and my dad. We stood exactly where the aircraft hit the crowd, but we left just before the Italian squad started their show. My dad was very angry because I jangled him with ice cream I wanted. At the moment of the crash, we sat in a tank eating ice cream. Probably the safest place at the airbase...since then, the 28th of August is our 2nd birthday. Guess how we celebrate! But I wish I wouldn't have seen what happened after...

His apartment is way to nice for college kids!  What a view of Sugarhouse park and the mountains.  His room has an entire corner of floor to ceiling windows overlooking Parley's trail.  They have a dishwasher and in room washer and dryer.

That is pretty nice. I didn't have an in-unit washer and dryer until I was 25 and then had a brief gap again from 31-33ish when I didn't and now once again do :-) Nice to have those things as a college student I guess as it saves time and money.

Hi Jeff,

I was snooping on your old Pocatello marathon race report from 2014. Got any tips for running the race? I ran the half in 2017 and I feel like I have a decent memory of what that was like. Is the first half all paved? Any tidbits of info would be helpful if you have the time.

Thanks in advance!

From jtshad on Wed, Aug 21, 2019 at 07:35:20 from 141.221.191.225

The first half is all paved and nearly all downhill and can be fast. The key to is work with the downhill and not burnout as you have to deal with the rollers in the second half. From 14-21 you have all the hills, just be patient. Go for even effort through here not even pacing. Once past Century HS you have the flat into the finish but it will start to get warmer and the fatigue will be setting in. Ensure to fuel and hydrate early and often. The toughest part for me is the miles 16-22 (rollers to Century) mentally and physically. Good luck.

From Donald on Sun, Aug 25, 2019 at 10:48:27 from 24.119.22.216

Thanks for the help!

From Donald on Tue, Aug 27, 2019 at 07:53:59 from 65.222.251.100

As it is a smaller event, is it wise to carry some water through the first half of the marathon? I know it says there are aid stations. Have they been reliable in your experience?

From jtshad on Tue, Aug 27, 2019 at 09:05:11 from 141.221.191.225

No need to carry water, the stations are well supplied with water and aid. Check the website to see where they are giving out gels, etc. and then decide if you need to carry more. The last time I ran it I carried two extra gels in case I needed them between the aid stations.

Verse I need to keep in mind this week with stresses: 

Colossians 3:12-13 New Living Translation (NLT)

12 Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. 13 Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others.

From jtshad on Sat, Oct 12, 2019 at 08:26:25 from 65.129.138.74

A few aspects of the change in my athletic focus. First to tennis…I had played competitive through High school and college and then into my early adult life on USTA club teams, making it to regional championships. Once kids came along, tennis took time away from family as the only time I could play was in the evenings/weekends and at least 3-4 times a week to even stay proficient. Additionally, the team captains and environment was getting toxic and nasty competitive and taking the fun away from the game from most of the players. At the same time since college I focused heavily on weight training and trying to “get big”. I got stronger and bigger but not really fitter and was growing my waistsize.

We bought a treadmill after our first child for my wife to use when she got pregnant again (the NordicTrack is not good for a pregnant belly). I started using it then some work friends asked me to join them a couple days a week at lunch. I started to like running. A friend at work ran the Pocatello Marathon and I started reading Runner’s World magazine and committed to my first marathon in 2005. I was hooked as I was more personally fulfilled with the competition and challenge of runner, the environment and other participant’s and the mental and physical changes (fitness) I gained in running.

As to tennis now, I still like the sport and have enjoyed watching it and plan to get back to playing probably more in retirement. I have not really played in years at do miss it at times, but not enough to stop running in exchange for the time commitment.

Boy, 4:15AM eastern time. That’s commitment before work meetings! Many thanks for your perspective and advice last night.

Had a full day of meetings, needed to get some early stress burned off. Glad to hook up with you and chat. Keep the faith and good luck with all the things ahead of you in 2020! Look forward to the next time we can meet or I can host you and Megan!

Are they the ones that don't display you MPH on the right (only while changing speeds)? I saw you got a PF membership back a while ago. It's not a bad deal.

The newer treadmills are not as good, but they are likely more accurate and balanced.

I find it hard to get the touch screen right. Seems to stop at 3.4 MPH when I try to ramp up. Kind of annoying.

Took off this morning for the Footlocker West trip with 120 kids on two buses with about 10 adults as chaperones (yikes!).  Stopped and ran in St. George then continued on to Las Vegas.  Sheparding 120 teenagers on Fremont St. in Vegas is a stressful situation.  On top of having all the hotels canceled this week and getting rebooked in the Las Vegas Hostel...was actually better than anticipated and probably better than the original hotel booked (and 1000% better than the rat hole we stayed at in 2014).  Vegas is just horrible.

Drove to Pomona, CA and previewed the course with all the kids at Mt. SAC.  The course was very muddy and more rain came tonight.  So the course was officially changed to a "road course" which was loops in the parking lot for tomorrow's race.  Kids are bummed.

We skipped the trip to the Santa Monica pier and helpe organize all the hotel rooms for the kids.

Got to see both of my brothers, Logan Fielding, Dave Holt and James Barnes! 

Spent the afternoon and evening at Knott's Berry Farm then got on the bus at 10:30 for a straight shot back to Idaho.

Kami and helped quite a bit with all the logisitics during the weekend.  Several coaches said that we helped them "feel like assistant coaches" where they focused on coaching the kids and not all the other coordinating activities.  Glad we could help out...don't want to do this again for a while.

Hey Jeff, I am somewhat curious about going to Westminister for either my final year of my undergraduate or possibly for a master's of business. I was wondering if you could give me some info about it, since your son Justin goes there. Tuition, room and board, etc.

From Jason D on Sat, Dec 14, 2019 at 19:43:22 from 73.144.88.57

Home for the holidays! Enjoy.

Hey Kenny. Check on the Westminster website for info on tuition and fees and scholarship requirements. They are increasing tuition by ~9% in 2020!

I would caution you to look hard at the requirements for graduation before transferring before your undergrad is done. They have specific requirements for their graduation. The Gore School of Business at Westminster is really good and highly regarded.

Westminster is a small school which is both good and bad, the culture is "interesting" and really liberal (even my son finds it very liberal!). My son really likes his teachers, but is not too impressed with the administration (nor am I). Seem more interested in your money than in you as a student.

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 besides in my day planner 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. based on paper logs before electronic logging)

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

Mileage 2007-2018: 40,811 miles (2963 - '07, 3706 - '08, 3760 - '09, 3659 - ‘10, 3725 - '11, 3468 – ’12, 3256 – ’13, 3395 – ’14, 3306 – ’15, 3171 – ’16, 3104 – ’17, 3298 – ‘18)

Mileage to date 2019: 2,910 miles (12/31/19).  Ran the equivalent distance from Glens Ferry, ID to Key West, FL!

Total lifetime miles:  50,600 miles
