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.

It was raining when I woke up this morning, so I was a bit worried.  Luckily the rain let up right before I picked up Troy.  We drove to the Pocatello Marathon start line and ran the course.  It was a beautiful morrning with temps starting at 48 and ending at 63.  Very comfortable.

We saw TONS of bike riders from the annual Spinderella event during the miles from Inkom to Century H.S.

We ran 20.06 miles.  My first 20+ miler in almost 2 years......

Asics GT 2000 Miles: 20.06
