Short-Term Running Goals:

Keep running. Get a BQ in 2018, as I'll be 45 and the time requirement drops to 3:25, so a 3:23:xx "should" get me in (just checked and I'm way off - in 2017 I would have needed a 3:21:37 - d'oh!). I hope I can find the time to train properly, and train without injury. And if I don't get a BQ, it's all good. I've done a 50 miler, and nobody can take that away from me.

Long-Term Running Goals:

Not get super fat....


Started running seriously in March 2010. Married 21 years to a hot momma and we have 3 boys, 1 sweet girl, 2 dogs, 3 2 0 1 cat, and 6     4 5 6 3 5 3 chickens (animals have a short life expectency in the country). I currently lead our church congregation and I feel blessed for the opportunity, and in May 2017 I joined our local School Board as a Trustee for a 3 year term. My day job is Learning Architect for a regional bank in MT, WY, SD, OR, ID, and WA.

Total Distance

Ran at lunchtime. Windy from the West! Tough running into the wind on the out, then tough running with the wind on the way back. No wind resistance = no cooling down. When I hit 4.1 miles and stopped, my headband was literally soaked in sweat and sweat was pouring down into my sunglasses and on the ground, being propelled by the wind. It was bizarre! I remember reading race reports of the 2011 Boston Marathon when Ryan Hall had the wind at his back on the return, and him saying how overheated he got because of a lack of wind resistance. I finally experienced that - very weird feeling.
