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 7 grandchildren.

It was 36 degrees and calm this morning.  I ran 6.54 easy miles, most of them with Jedd.  My quads were a bit tight at first from the downhills Saturday but my energy was great and I think recovery will be fast.

It was 42 degrees and calm this morning.  I ran 1.5 miles before our group run.  Barry and I ran the burned-up trail as part of the run.  Then I ran a couple miles with Jedd.  When he dropped off, I ran in to Terry and Lowell and ran a couple more with Lowell before running home.  Total 9.22 miles.

It was 50 degrees this morning when I left.  66 when I got back.  I ran later to get used to warmer temperatures to be ready for next Saturday.  I ran 16.05 miles with a 5 mile tempo thrown in just to see how it felt.  I actually had to slow down on Monte Vista Ave for a family of turkeys on the street.  This is not a rural street so this was very weird.
