Running Accomplishments:

Once beat Cheryl at the Hobble Creek Half Marathon about three years ago, and kept up with Peggy for 100m four years ago. Completion of 52 marathons to date.

I enjoy the marathon distance. It demands consistency in training and provides a constant goal to work towards. Could not run without the support of my great family and friends. 

Short-Term Running Goals:

Stay healthy would be the number one goal. To accomplish this long-term feat I need to cross-train and add strength training into the mix.

Long-Term Running Goals:

Someday I would like to qualify for Boston although at the moment it seems very tough!

Personal:

Love running, music, art, food, friends and family in no particular order it just depends on the day.

Okay,

I am going to try to get back into the swing of things and write on the blog again. It has been a while since I have written, mainly for the argument of thinking that too much has been spent on writing about running.

 I am going to try an experiment. Hopefully writing about running will help me to feel more accountable about running and getting out there in the muck and lacing up. I am looking forward to a much improved year of running. 

 I am committed to loosing the 20lbs that were put on the last 18 months.

I had the surgery on my nagging knee injury and it is wonderful to simply run without pain once again.

I will report my progress on the blog and hopefully some readers our there will keep me motivated for this upcoming, spectacular marathon season.

Very cold and gunky this morning, but hey, I was running with friends. We ran 2 three mile loops in the South Jordan area at a 8:30 - 9:30 pace which felt comfortable. 

 Later in the afternoon I did a short 4 mile run up City Creek canyon because it appeared to be fairly clear compared to the rest of the valley.

 I hope we get 2 feet of snow tomorrow to clean up this air. My throat is absolutely killing me.

Run in the evening about 10:00pm. The air was foggy and absolutely full of crap. I ran with a headlamp and it might have been better just to leave it at home for all the good that it did. I listened to the "Gunslinger" by Stephen King on my ipod which made the journey much easier. The book should be a good read.

Early Saturday morning run at 5:30 to accommodate some of the schedules. It was very foggy and the air was saturated with crap. My lungs were absolutely on fire when finished. The first 5 miles were fairly quick and then my legs tired out but I was able to to a 9:30 mile consistently to the end.

 Looking forward to some of the storms that are to be coming in next week. Hopefully the air will be cleaner.

 In the afternoon I took my three kids to the Olympic Oval to teach them to ice skate. 2 out of 3 had a blast, the other was pretty miserable. I have discovered ice skating is an excellent way to build up the stabilizer muscles.
