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 Iím in trouble,
and you will answer me.† - Psalm 86:1-7

Very late night as Katelyn had a party at our house, last kid left at 2am.  Up at 7am, 3 miles in some deep snow.  Maybe another run or XC skiing later.

3 miles of XC skiing at Tauphaus Park with Kami in fresh snow, breaking tracks for lots of the time. 

Happy New Year.

How is the Saucony Xodus? It seems ideal for the price. I run in the cumulus- do you know if it is a similar feel (minus the upper obviously)?

From jtshad on Fri, Jan 10, 2020 at 20:15:48 from 75.174.5.48

The Xodus is a good trail shoe and great in snow due to the Vibram outsole. A bit heavy, much more so than the Perregine. I have liked them for winters and on trails.

Lots fo snow from the storm last night too deep to want to run before work maybe at lunch.  So far in January 2020, Idaho Falls has had 20" of snow, a total of 40" since October 2019.  Really starting to accummulate now, the snowbank on the side of my driveway is nearly as tall as I am.

6 miles on a cold but sunny and calm day at lunch on a freshly plowed pathway. Good to get some Vitamin D. (Guide Blue)

That really is impressive. Hopefully you have a snowblower.

From jtshad on Thu, Jan 16, 2020 at 11:12:37 from 141.221.191.225

It has come in slowly enough that it has actually been easier to use a shovel. Now I am not sure a snowblower would get the snow over the mound!

From Jason D on Sun, Jan 19, 2020 at 20:39:18 from 73.144.88.57

I had no idea that you got that much snow, but it seems like this is a particularly snowy season. I think we hit 16 or so total inches since November. We really don't get much snow here. I think where I grew up we would get around 70 or so.

From jtshad on Mon, Jan 20, 2020 at 16:33:48 from 75.174.5.48

Our snowfall can vary, this is a bigger year than most recently, though I remember some real monster winters from years past.

5 miles of XC skiing on a beautiful day with Kami, including a few miles with the Holidays.  A good way to try to enjoy winter.

You are doing winter right. Rob once remarked that when he lived in (I think Minnesota) the happiest people were the ones who figured out how to make the best of winter through activity. I watched a little cross country skiing while I was at my folks over the holidays and they have to be some of the most aerobically fit athletes!

From jtshad on Mon, Jan 20, 2020 at 16:32:55 from 75.174.5.48

Trying to do what we can to enjoy this time of year, this helps. Still cannot wait for spring and warmer weather.

See you next week hopefully.

It's probably because your shocks and struts are beyond worn on your shoes.

From jtshad on Sat, Jan 25, 2020 at 13:52:35 from 75.174.5.48

No, actually the shocks and struts on my old body in the cold is more likely the issue. Nursing the shoes through the winter then breaking out two new pair.

Westminster College just cancelled all in room classes for the reminder of the term (and May Term) and is letting kids out of their housing contracts early.  We will be going to SLC soon to get Justin's stuff.  Just a crazy time with lots of anxiety for everyone.  At least he was not in SLC for the earthquake, but he has not idea of the status of his apartment (his roommate is away as well).

So this chaos and anxiety were are facing in the world right now has made me do some hard and deep thinking and praying.  A perspective that I come back to mostly is thinking about the role that God assigned us (humans) for this world…Stewardship.   From the beginning, this was our assigned responsibility and it was corrupted early (think Adam and Eve) and is still the most egregious issue today (which is very easy to see) in our lives…Greed.  We cannot be good stewards if we are greedy.  Stewards of our resources or our relationships.  All “isms” are corrupted by greed, they work on paper but fail in implementation when you insert greed (e.g. people) into the system.  This is true of our economic systems, our political systems, our industrial/technology systems, our relational/social systems.  We must use this opportunity to have us as individuals, as communities, as nations and as a society/world as a whole come back to stewardship for all as our focus and responsibility, not on the greed that then separates and corrupts this role.  We should focus on our society, not our industry; our relationships, not technology; our shared values, not our political differences; our common goals, not our personal differences (e.g. race, color, culture, dress, etc.).  We have seen that God’s nature is good if we think on stewardship not greed and need to balance our societal advancement against our greed.  Look at the air quality in China and Italy, the water quality in Venice as examples of a balance and nature’s goodness if we do not focus on our greed for our accumulation of stuff and experience.  We should focus on helping and caring for each other more (as we are seeing) not continuing to tear each other down (as we are also witnessing).  We should prop up what is important and our relationships with each other and forward values and contribution to others.  We should reward better jobs that matter (teachers, scientists, care providers, food producers and distributors, manufacturers, safety and security officials, etc.) with due compensation and not those that foster greed (entertainers, athletes, politicians, CEO’s, etc.).   If we focus on stewardship, we could have drastic impacts on improving our society and relationships, our resources and our environment.  Let this time be a lesson to us individually and as a whole.

That is a great insight, Jeff. Hopefully this lesson will stick with the human race for a long time. I hadn't thought of this experience in the perspective of a poorly managed stewardship, but I realize now how that is exactly what it is. I will try to be a better steward over what I've been blessed with!

Heading to SLC today to move Justin out of his school apartment.  He is doing online classes for the remainder of the term and perhaps May term.  Waiting to see how Westminster credits us for the rent and return of funds for his cancelled trip to Germany in May (we already gave the school a good chuck of $).  His roommate is "staying" so it is going to be interesting to see how this goes with us taking Justin's stuff...most of the kitchen and household equipment...since we don't have a plan for the logistics after school yet (e.g. apartment) and other "complicating" factors (e.g. girlfriend).

A 6.5 magntitude earthquake rocked the entire state of Idaho last night. Centered near Sun Valley (the hot spot for COVID-19 as well).  We felt it here but just minor and no issues. Interesting times...focus on what is important in our lives, relationships to each other and the Lord.

Really pissec off right now.  Saw that Sam's club had toilet paper so went to get some...gone.  People had 2-3 cases (50 rolls per case) in their carts..why at a time of shortage does management allow this?  Assholes (lanaguage on purpose).  Then came home to go for a lunch run, got 1/2 mile out and Moxie was attacked by a loose dog, had to beat it off with my lease and kicking at it.  What the F%@&?  Lease you dog or put them in the backyard.  Even in my neighborhood now I have to regularly deal with this shit.  Trying to calm down before my conference call so will try to run again after work.

Went to go put winter shovels away in the shed, ended up having to exterminate and clean up after mice that housed there over the winter.  They actually ate the mouse poison I had stored in the shed...so much for that products effectiveness.  So, had to worry about Coronavirus and Hantavirus at the same time! 

I am likely going to cut down my fruit trees as they are a pain, don't produce effectively and when the plums do come in they make a winter food source for mice (even when I am very diligent about picking fallen fruit).

Celebrating 27 years with Kami who is my best friend and person who demonstrates love and compassion better than anyone I know.  I am blessed to be called her husband and thankful everyday for her impact in my life.

We tried to get some take out for a "picnic" lunch on the foothills, every place was slammed. Got coffee instead and enjoyed the view and conversation.  Getting pizza tonight for dinner and a movie with the family.

From jtshad on Tue, Apr 21, 2020 at 13:36:26 from 141.221.191.225

He has very strong opinions and perspectives. He is very politically active and with his broad range of economic studies (wide range of disciplines at Westminster faculty) have him view this from many angles. That plus his values are a strong and interesting mix. Need people like him for the future to help lead where the current leaders and our generations have now gone off the rails.

Because you train like a guy that's not retired from racing.

From jtshad on Thu, Apr 23, 2020 at 08:22:14 from 141.221.191.225

Yes retired (at least for now). Just a middle aged guy trying to burn off stress from work, family, COVID-19 stay at home, etc. Also, enjoy my microbrew beers too much not to run so I can offset the calories. Most runs are not "training pace" but easy to clear my head and ensure training niggles don't return on my old body.

There is a local brewery called Idaho Brewing Company, or IBC. I love the black lager (darker with coffee and chocolate notes) or their Pale Ale (just shy of an IPA in its hoppy note). Get a couple of growlers every Saturday and usually get me through the week. Nice to help out the local guy.

There is a development on the Snake River that runs through Idaho Falls that is called Snake River Landing (SRL). Nice pathways and wide roads with little traffic. It is about 1-1.5 miles from my house to get there.

From Mike on Wed, May 20, 2020 at 16:20:00 from 35.142.90.55

There isn't anything better than new developments. Up north there has been a project that has been "in construction" for 6-7 years now. 12+ miles of out and back paved dead ends on the top of a mountain with zero traffic... It's the dream. Whomever green-lighted that project must be in some deep financial trouble!

I would agree, sometimes not even that. Combining a prayer, then a run and finally a beer or two seems to be even better.

While running yesterday I decided I wanted to build a fort in the woods, so I did just that today. I've decided I am going to do small things that help me out, that aren't harmful to me or others, and just work through it.

It was crazy! Thanks for reaching out. we are doing ok. I am working from home mostly as is Kami. Justin is doing college classes and working on some job options. Katelyn graduates from HS on May 28 then starts University of Idaho in the fall. Trying to learn how to be parents of two adults and having 4 adults in our house...whew! Praying for safety and sanity for you and your family as well.

We also have transitions, but lower. My oldest just finished 8th grade and youngest 5th grade so transitioning to High School and Middle School this fall... That is great news about your two. My how time flies. Fortunately, I've also been able to work mostly from home. This week however the university is starting to open up so we will see how that goes.

They are good shoes, very light weight, low profile and fast. Not much as far as cushioning though. Good for racing and shorter fast training workouts. They are durable and have nice drain/ventilation holes in the soles.

The more uncertainty we have with school, and the closer it gets, the more anxiety we are seeing in my family.

From Rob Murphy on Tue, Aug 04, 2020 at 16:24:46 from 67.177.30.39

See my most recent comment Jon. I saw Greenville County is trying to force parents to commit to a particular option for the entire school year! Interesting, to say the least.

From Jon on Tue, Aug 04, 2020 at 16:46:57 from 96.33.80.155

Yeah, we had to commit to a full semester for now. What I wish was that the all in-person was actually that- 5 days a week at school, no matter what. Sign waivers, whatever. But let parents choose to send them, regardless of case count.

From Rob Murphy on Tue, Aug 04, 2020 at 17:26:11 from 67.177.30.39

Move to Sandy, Utah and you'll have your wish. Also, no waiver required.

From Jon on Wed, Aug 05, 2020 at 07:07:59 from 104.129.205.25

I wish I could. It would be nice if each community/school could choose whatever they want (all online, all in-person, hybrid, etc) and the students were free to move to whichever school they wanted, with the funding following the students.

I guess mid life stuff: both kids are off to college (worrying about them and their safety), work issues (not really liking it right now), pandemic issues, relationship issues with family and friends, etc.

From Jon on Sat, Aug 22, 2020 at 14:59:26 from 96.33.80.155

Is it more stressful having kids at home with the normal teenage angst and parent/kid relationship, or at college where you don't know what is happening to them?

From jtshad on Sun, Aug 23, 2020 at 05:50:14 from 65.129.151.26

With them both being adults having them at home as they tend to see advice as control/direction. Plus just keeping up with their drama and messes right in front of you as opposed to being away from your immediate proximity makes it more in your bubble of things to take care of.

No run as we made the drive back to Idaho Falls today.

Daughter found out that another class with be via Zoom.  So, she has 3 classes fully via online lecture, two she attends every other lecture in person and a lab she will do hands-on every other week. 

She is a bit stressed trying to comprehend the schedule, access requirements, syllabus, etc. of classes and life for the next semester...school is a lot of change even without the impacts of a pandemic.  The university is trying to provide lots of support.  She has personal met the provost and dean of students, seems like she has a good RA, made a connection with IT department, has a boyfriend and friends from home (though in a different dorm so they cannot visit each others rooms) and met a few hallmates (her hall is all single rooms).  Kami also is friends with the CEO of the local hospital which is a nice contact to have.

She also learned that a person who checked in on her hall tested positive. Trying to figure out what this means for the girls on the hall (isolations, etc.) I called a friend in Moscow while we were there to say hi, and they indicated that one of them tested positive earlier in the weekand are thus in isolation.  The president, dean of students and provost sent out an email pleading with students to participate with guidelines and not have off campus parties otherwise face a suspension.  So far they university is seeing a 1% positive test rate.

Nice work, Moxie! She has approximately 1/3 of my miles in the last decade. And she requires a human to take her!

What's it like being an empty nester now? Do you miss some of the adventure/noise/hectic-ness that comes with kids in the house?

From jtshad on Wed, Sep 02, 2020 at 06:23:34 from 65.129.151.26

Still getting used to it, we do miss the energy of the kids, but it is nice to have control of life again...things stay picked up and put away, we choose what we eat and when with no disagreement, more flexibility on what we do and when, etc. My biggest difference is the stress, only my issues and not having theirs in front of me all the time...we are here for them when they need us and tell us of their concerns.

From Jon on Wed, Sep 02, 2020 at 17:11:11 from 96.33.80.155

From Rob Murphy on Fri, Sep 04, 2020 at 13:52:00 from 163.248.33.245

Not an empty nester yet but one of my children messes up the house way more than the other and the messy one is gone so it's almost the same.

From jtshad on Sat, Sep 05, 2020 at 10:24:42 from 65.129.151.26

the new people are coming into the office and we are getting remote access. Have specific current staff mentoring new people. It is difficult, but we desperately need new folks for current work not to mention for planning for future retirements in the 1-5 years (including me!).

I had a marketing prof back in 2000 bring this issue up in class and remember the interesting discussions regarding privacy. His thought was consumers will eventually revolt and demand compensation for their privacy and time. However, we underestimated tech and the power of socialization needs. I do think though at some point a revolt will occur or tables will turn in some way. Right now consumer data is easy to acquire because we are willingly giving it away, but there is also the hacking.

The debate was an unmitigated disaster. However, one thing that stuck out was only one guy has a plan and was speaking to the people or at least was trying. Honestly, I think it's a tactic to make these as messy as possible so people become exasperated and don't turn out the vote. Low voter turnout usually favors the incumbent.

Got my Camaro back from the dealer.  Took it in last week to get new front tires, ended up with all new re-powdered coated wheels on all four wheels since they scratched the rim when installing a tire.  Great honest from the dealership (Smith Chevrolet) as I am not sure I would have noticed where the scratch was.  The car and wheels look great.

Day off, really cold outside.  Had errands to run, order college books, did some financial planning, watched a movie that my son likes from his favorite director.  Finished reading "Talking to Strangers" by Malcolm Gladwell.

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 2007-2019: 43,721 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, 2910 – ‘19)

Mileage to date 2020: 3,326 (12/31/20).  Ran the equivalent distance from Yakima, WA to Key West Naval Station, FL!

Total lifetime miles:  53,925 miles
