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 7 grandchildren.

6:30am  The temperature was 22 degrees with very little wind.  That was the good news.  The bad news was we had a dusting of snow last night that slickened the roads and hid the icy spots so I wore my "bolt shoes" as I call them.  I ran 12.27 miles on icy streets and ran fast when I could.

 6:30pm:  6.25 easy miles on the treadmill after my lower body weight workout.

6:30am:  Today was a horrible run.  The temperature was fine, 37 degrees.  The wind was nasty, 30mph+, but that was not the problem.  The roads were ice or black ice with some water on top of them.  I literally had to stop and walk several times because it was flat-out dangerous. Even my bolt shoes did not help.   I ran (ha) 12.29 miles in a pace around 8:30 due to the conditions.  It felt more like a survival outing than a run.  I will try to get some fast miles in tonight.

6:00pm:  It was 40 degrees and very windy tonight, but all the roads that were ice this morning were just wet tonight.  I ran 6.57 miles and in the dark I saw 3 deer dart in front of some cars while running up Satterfield.

6:30am:  Temperature was 42 degrees this morning, but the wind was 20mph gusting over 30mph out of the South.  Luckily, the roads were nice and clear so I had OK South miles and great North miles.  I ran 12.31 miles and felt really good.
