 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

6M on a nice morning.  Wasn't feeling great on the run this morning, nothing bad just not into the run so again an easy run.  2 weeks of easier running after the Ogden marathon has felt pretty good as a break from the more high mileage training. 

Traveling all this week so I hope to get in 2 runs a day depending on meeting schedules and routes available.

total time: 43:14  (Trigon - 227 miles)

Laid pavers for a new patio we are putting in our backyard all afternoon. Looks pretty good, just have to let it settle in and finish the final sand application and it will be done.

6M easy paced (7:24) miles early this morning before catching my flight for my business trip this week.  Not a good run as I just couldn't get going again.  Ran in my Fireblades because I had already packed my Trigons.

total time: 44:23  (Fireblades - 114 miles)

4M from the hotel at an easy pace.  I ran after dinner and had a very heavy stomach which did not agree with the run.  Back to the hotel to watch the end of the Yankees game.

total time: 28:50 (Trigon - 231 miles)

6M early this morning before meetings.  A fartlek run with about 2M in increments between a 5:30 and 6:00 pace.  Overall a good run on a humid morning. 

total time: 41:19  (Trigon - 237 miles)

4M run after dinner from the hotel up to Devou Park...2M straight up hill.  Then a nice 2M downhill run back!  Dinner was a bit lighter than last night, but I don't like running after eating (no choice, the group went and I go with the crowd).

total time: 27:56  (Trigon - 241 miles)

5.35M easy this morning before taking off for meetings.  Got up a bit late, so I had to cut the run short of the 6M goal.  Nice run along the river amongst very nice houses with 10 hill repeats (0.07M) during the run.

total time: 36:55  (Trigon - 246 miles)

5.65M after returning from meetings today.  Ran the hill up to Devou Park and a bit of additional trail running then back down to the hotel in time to beat the thunderstorm rolling in.  As I was heading into the park, I spooked a dear out of the brush and it bolted out of the trees 5 feet in front of me and across the road, much closer and we would have run into each other.  Got the run in before dinner and drinks this time which made the run much more pleasant.

total time: 36:45 (Trigon - 252 miles)

8M early this morning along the river and through the nice neighborhood again with 16 hill repeats this time.  Leaving for home today...yeah!

total time: 58:20  (Trigon - 260 miles)

1M at soccer practice with my kid's team.  Glad to be home, but man am I tired.

10M this morning in cold crappy weather...windy, rainy and just cold.  Hip was feeling weird for the first mile then went away, but just couldn't get going fast so I just got the miles in.  Will try to do chores around the house and yard with my father in law (Kami's honey-do's) today weather permitting.

total time: 1:13:30  (Trigon - 270 miles)

12M early this morning in cold and windy should not be 37 degrees in June!  I ran 4.5M by myself before heading over to the Community Park for our group run.  Met up with Andrea and Deborah and ran for about 3.5M with Deb and 5.5M with Andrea before parting ways, then ran the last 2M by myself home.  I was cold and my hands were numb (even with gloves) by the time I got home.  Ran easy with the gals (7:35ish) and did some 6:45ish miles during my solo time.

total time:  1:29:30  (Trigon - 282 miles)

2M while refereeing my kids soccer games...the last two games of the season, now we get our Saturday's back!
