Sep 01, 2008
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:
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 6 grandchildren.

Early Travel day to Seattle for a couple days of meetings.
I am staying in a hotel right next to the Pike Place Market in Seattle. I ran North on the Elliot Bay Trail to Smith Cove Park and back. Beautiful morning, low 60's with a breeze along the water. 7.06 miles.
It was 63 degrees with 77% humidity in Seattle this morning. Felt great, but I was saoking wet when I finished. I ran all the way to the marina and back. 10.07 miles.
7.08 miles on the JRP. 72 degrees when I started, 78 when I finished.
