Finished 2nd Overall in 2005 Utah Grand Slam to Paul Peterson.  He beat me by 30 min in every race.

Completed the Utah Grand Slam 10 consecutive years (2003-2012).  I don't know if anyone else has done that.

Short-Term Running Goals:

2018 Goals:

Just get back in shape after slacking hard in 2017.

I do half my running in Idaho and half in Utah due to my work.

Maybe run another marathon later in the year.

Long-Term Running Goals:

Maybe run a Marathon once in a while....but I am not in that competitive mode anymore.

Personal:

I'm in the 50-54 Age Group.....Yikes!

I have been married for over 30 years.  We have 3 children and 6 grandchildren.

We left early this morning to go skiing with the family.  It was cold but bearable when the sun was shining.  We had a great day!!!

I went to my early morning BodyPump class for 1 hour then jumped on the TM.  I stopped after 5 miles as I was completely out of gas.  This cold is kicking my butt.

I finally felt well enough to run after feeling terrible the past 3 days.  I ran 10.00 steady miles on the TM and then did 45 minutes of weight-lifting.  Still not 100%.....but much better.

I ran 10.00 steady on the TM, then lifted for 45 minutes.  I needed to lift today because I won't have time for a workout tomorrow morning due to a new computer system install in 1 of the restaurants very early tomorrow morning.

I got up this morning and dressed to go to the gym.  When I got downstairs and checked the temperature....it was 34 degrees!  No way I was wasting that...  I changed to run outside, I even wore shorts with a light jacket.  

The main streets were pretty good but the side streets are still solid ice.  I nearly wiped out over a dozen times.  Luckily I was able to stay upright and ran 10.58 miles....OUTSIDE!!!
