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.


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

I have been married for over 30 years.  We have 3 children and 7 grandchildren.

Long Run day.  I drove to the start of the marathon course as the sun came up.  Nobody else wanted to run that far so I was alone.  21.04 miles and felt much better the last 7 miles than I did a couple weeks ago!

Asics 2000 Miles: 21.04
