Running Accomplishments:

Started running in 2001.  Have completed over 100 marathons and ultras since then. 

Marathon PR 2:56:04 (2005 St. George)

New PR 2:53:24 (2008 Tucson)

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

1/2 Marathon PR 1:23:56 (2008 Just Cuz Half Marathon)

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.

10.05 miles on a nice Saturday morning.  I ran down Hiline and then up Chubbuck Rd to the Portneuf Wellness Center and then back.  The uphill from Hiline on Chubbuck Rd kinda kicked my butt.

13.10 miles on a sunny morning.  Glen ran miles 2-4 with me and I saw him again at the Wellness Center.  I ran a couple loops around the center then ran back home.  Pace held very nicely.  This was my longest run since August of 2016.....I'm getting there!

7.10 miles on the JRP.  A warmish morning with the added challenge of trying not to swallow any of the cotton floating around from the trees.
