Short-Term Running Goals:

It's been a challenging year so far since Boston 2011.  When I got home from Boston my world changed when I found out I had some pretty severe food allergies. Since being tested I have been focused on building my health back up which has been a long slow process. What a difference it's made and I feel extremely blessed. For years I knew something was wrong and it's amazing to finally know that food can actually be a persons medicine to live a healthy life. 

Long-Term Running Goals:

"You have to wonder at times what you're doing out there. Over the years, I've given myself a thousand reasons to keep running, but it always comes back to where it started. It comes down to self-satisfaction and a sense of achievement."
- Steve Prefontaine

I'm hoping to start building more miles when I can and be injury free.  Maybe one of these days I'll be fast. Just for now I'm just very happy to be running.

Personal:

Happily married to Marlin Ordway. We've got 4 grown children between the two of us.  It's been fun watching them go through life - making mistakes and picking themselves back up.  I love seeming them happy and succeeding.

Went to church this morning and then for a run.  I forgot my watch so I think I did between 6 & 6.5 miles.  Pretty good day.  Not to hot and not to cold.   Hoping the week goes well.   Taking it easy today.  But, getting quite a bit done around the house.

Woke up pretty early today - 4am.  Went to work by 5 to get off at 1:30pm. Went and ran down by the river.  Was alittle tired and it was alittle warm.  Took it easy doing my laps around the river.  When I had just finished my sister pulled up. She was running 1 lap so I went with her.  It was fun running with her and just talked sister stuff. When we were finished I saw that I had just .40 more miles to make it an even 9 miles so off I go to finish it.

I had also walked 1.25 miles on lunch just to get outside an enjoy the weather. Loving the weather!

Had time just for a short run today.  Had to help Marlin pick up a rental car after work and then had a hair appointment later.  So, just had time for a short run.  The nice part was I ran into my sister when I was starting out so we ran together.  That doesn't happen to often.  Lots of fun!   Walked 1.20 miles over lunch.  Counting as .25.

Ran into my sister again as I was getting ready to run.  We took off by the falls and went over to Snake River Landing.  After running over there alittle while we ran back and she had to  go back to work.  I kept  going and went over to Freeman Park.  By the time I got back it was 8 & half miles.   Need to stretch - my hips alittle sore.    Marlins out of town the next few days so I'm hoping to get some good miles in.

I was alittle tired today after work. But, didn't want to miss running.  Took off by Best Western at the river and went north to go into Freeman Park.  Ran over there for a few loops and went back over to the main section of the greenbelt that most people do.  Went back down to Broadway and finished back where I started. I think I was tired because it was hectic at work and computer systems not working like they should.  Nothening like having quota's to meet and getting kicked off the network.  I walked a lunch which was nice getting outside. Probably walked alittle over a mile.
