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 4 grandchildren.

It was still really icy from all the thawing and re-freezing so I did a treadmill run.  I ran 6.00 uneventful miles.

It was 30 degrees with some wind, but not too bad this morning.  We had a very light dusting of snow that hid some icy spots on un-plowed side streets, but once I dropped off the bench the streets were great.  I ran 12.31 miles

It was 31 degrees, a bit windy, and wet outside.  I guess I better enjoy it as it is supposed to be at least 30 degrees colder tomorrow morning!  I ran 10.57 miles in wet, soupy fog at times and was soaked when I got home.

It was below zero outside this morning and even worse with the wind chill so I opted for the treadmill.  I ran an easy 7.00 miles.  I may try to get in a few more tonight if I don't get home too late.
