Finished 2nd Overall in 2005 Utah Grand Slam to Paul Peterson.  He beat me by 30 min in every race.

Completed the Utah Grand Slam 10 consecutive years (2003-2012).  I don't know if anyone else has done that.

2017 Goals:

Try to get my mileage back up.

Stay injury-free an entire season.

Just enjoy running.

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!

Troy ran the marathon route with me again.  Well, for the first 17 miles, then he pulled away as I faded hard!  I stayed up too late last night and didn't eat a good dinner because we went to the Keith Urban concert at the Wellness Center.  We had a GREAT time, but I only got 3 1/2 hours of sleep before the alarm went off and my last 5 miles were more of a death march.

Total 20.35 miles in new shoes.
