Short-Term Running Goals:
Be consistent in my running. Find Balance.
I do half my running in Idaho and half in Utah due to my work.
Run a couple marathons this year.
Long-Term Running Goals:
Enjoy winning my old-man Age Group (55-59)!
I'm in the 55-59 Age Group.....Yikes!

It was 46 degrees and calm. First day I felt well enough to run in over a week. I ran 10.58 miles. Energy level was still probably only a 3 or 4 and I did a lot of coughing and other nastiness, but it felt good to get the run in.
