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.

6:15am...5 miles with Moxie before church. (Mirage)

2 miles after our small group Marriage study on a nice afternoon.

Then, tragedy today.  A good friend and fellow athlete killed herself today, we are heartbroken for ourselves and our community, but even more for her husband and two daughters.  Please, as a person who has faced the darkness of depression, I urge you all to pay attention to others and reach out even when it feels uncomfortable or prying.  A hand may be all someone needs, or even has, to help them.  Always rest assured that God is there for you and you cannot out sin his grace or can be in a dark place where his light cannot overcome. 

God bless you Amy, we will miss you.

Happy Thanksgiving!  Got up and prepared all the fixing for dinner then went out for a run on a beautiful day at 11:30 for 5 miles. Came back and picked up the family for 3 more to finish with 8 miles.  Now to indulge a bit!  (Altra Impulse)

Got up at the normal time then headed out to the stores for some items for Christmas and saved lots of $$$.  Went out for a run in the neighborhood with Kami on her fat bike for 6 miles in beautiful weather.  (Guide)

Sad day today as we remember our dear friend Amy at her Celebration of Life.  I am honoted to have been asked to give a Christian faith talk at the memorial.  We miss you Amy but celebrate that you are in the presence of Jesus.
