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 6 grandchildren.

Utah Valley Marathon.  I used this race as a measuring stick to see where I am and to adjust my training for my fall marathons.  I figured I was in 3:40 shape and my 3:38 finish pretty much confirmed that.

I struggled on the uphills in miles 8-9 and 16-17, especially the second set with the strong, hot headwind we had for a few miles.  It felt like running in to a huge blowdryer.  I ran the last 5 miles with Bret Zundel, who I haven't seen since 2008...that was awesome!
