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.

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

Got up early this morning and went out on a beautiful morning.  8.5M through Snake River Landing to Broadway and back in 57:15.  4M easy (~7:10 pace), then 4M at MP between 6:24 - 6:02.  Ran the uphill section at a 5:35 pace (in SRL) then 0.5M cooldown back to the house.  A much better run than yesterday and a good start to my roll back week to get ready for Ogden.

4:30am...6M in 46:39 in cool and windy weather.  Just a normal easy early morning run.  (tornado)

6M at lunch in a hurricane in 41:09!  The wind was crazy strong and seemed to come at you from almost every direction.  Just got 'er done though I wish it had been nicer to try and get some speed work in.  (Defyance)

1M while referreeing my son's soccer game last night...I was sweating by the end!

4:30am...almost went to the gym as I thought the wind was going to be nasty (we had 60 mph gusts throughout the night) but when I went outside it was actually pretty nice.  6.5M in 51:17 for a nice easy run, my knees were a bit sore at the start of the run but were not bothering me by the end.  Looking to be a nice day today assuming the wind doesn't pick back up.  (Tornado)

4.5M at an average 6:02 pace (first 2 miles sub 6:00 then had to battle wind all the way back) on a beautiful day...sunny, 40 degrees and a breeze.  Nice run though I was hoping for a bit faster.  After I stopped and was walking back the building I got a bit light headed...time for fuel!  (Defyance)

4:30am...6M in 47:30, slow and easy on a cold morning (23 degrees!).  Nothing special, just getting in the miles. (tornado)

4M at lunch on a cool and windy day in 26:12 in between meetings so I didn't have much time.  (Defyance)

1M while refereeing my son's soccer game...they played great against another good team and won 2-0.

4:20am...6M on a cold (28 degrees) and very windy morning.  For the last 2 miles I had to deal with a freezing rain that really stung when it hit my face and eyes.  The weather isn't supposed to improve today so I will see if I actually feel like getting out at lunch today.  (tornado)

I didn't have much time at lunch so a short 3 loops around Freeman Park plus a little for a 3.5M run in 23:20 for a 6:40 average.  Only in Idaho...I had sunshine on me and it was snowing!  Cold windy conditions but I was overdressed.  (Defyance)

I slept in today and went out for my last longer and harder run before Ogden after taking the kids to school and letting it warm up a bit.  The sun was out and it was cool but not bad so I got to run in shorts and long sleeve shirt.  1M easy (7:00) then I hit the rest at slow to moderate MP (6:20ish to 6:10ish) running through Snake River Landing and doing the rollers 4 times.  10.2M in 1:04:52 (6:21 average) for a good run.  

Busy day with Kami and I am getting a massage this afternoon which I hope helps loosen up things. 

Likely my last run for the week as I have an all day Scouting activity with my son tomorrow starting at 6am!

Today was a total "Dad and son" day.  Got up early to get to the Scout Jamboral in Blackfoot with his den.  Later in the day, we went to dinner and went to see "Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief" (since he just got done reading the book).  Overall a great day to focus on my son...and no running.  It was nice to have the break and just have a great time.
