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.

Finally was able to have a full night's rest. Woke up at 4:48 and went for a run around the neighborhood. Wish today would have been yesterday so I would have made it to the BBK workout. The run was nice, it is wonderful to have it finally cool in the mornings.

Long run in preparation for St. George. First 11 went smooth but continually slowed after that. Might have been the 10 from yesterday. I think much more focus on long runs will help with the endurance issues I have been having during marathons this year.

Ran the Steeplechase which is a 5 miler and then opted to run back to my car which added an additional 5 miles. 10 in all. Actually felt really good. Starting the day on a positive note.

Ran around the neighborhood but found a new street to run. South Jordan Canal Road in Taylorsville is beautiful. I will have to mix it in more often. Used the new Nike+ GPS app on my iPhone which is incredible. Finally I can use GPS, and have a map to look at while running. I believe this totally destroys anything Garmin currently has.

Run up City Creek. Thought I might be caught in a rain storm but it stayed dry during my run. Very nice, in the upper 50's.

Ran with my daughter Zoey in the jogging stroller. She seems to love going for runs because she hums and sings her own little tunes and I run my guts out. Nice to spend time along with my buddy.

Early morning run along the Jordan River Parkway with Kris and Debbie. A little cool this morning. First time in about six months that I have run with gloves and a long-sleeved shirt. Fall is on its way!

 After looking at Kelli's miles I ended up going out again and putting in 10 more. Kind of crazy but the insanity is contagious.

Treadmill workout at TOSH. It was focusing mostly on 45 minutes speed jumps. I love the workouts because it includes weights, core, and discussing goals with the trainers which are awesome. It was my last workout so it was kind of a bummer. Will probably sign-up for another session but $500.00 bucks is kind of a lot of money right now.

Run up City Creek Canyon. Very nice day, cool, not too hot. Perfect in just about everyway.

I went to the library to pick-up a book that was on hold. Instead of driving I strapped my daughter Zoey into her stroller and we made a run for it. She really seems to enjoy the movement. With about a mile left to go she fell asleep.  I thought about continuing on but the stroller got a flat tire dangit!

Ran with the group this morning. First time since the middle of June. Felt great to be back. We ran a 8 mile downhill course which felt wonderful. Not a whole lot of work, just focusing on speed. 

 Later that afternoon I ran 4 miles going up an down City Creek. Nice day but my knees are killing me after all that pounding.

Nice morning if a little bit windy. Started out in Copperton and ran along the New Bingham Highway. Just a little under a half mile.

Ran 4 miles on grass. Felt very comfy even though the speed was a bit slow.

Ran 6.5 this afternoon around the neighborhood. Nice and not too hot. I had a jug full of half Gatorade, half water with a shot of Sprite. Tasted pretty good.

Went to TOSH for my plyometrics workout and two hours later I am beat to a bloody pulp. Boy, isn't cross-training awesome?

I dropped my kids off Murray High for their dance class and decided to put in a track workout. There were a few high school kids doing 400's so I was the odd one out doing my laps in the far lane. Running on the soft track felt great on my knees since they have been giving me fits lately. I ended up running 100 sprints for the last 2 miles. Taking the turns as recovery and giving it all I had on the straights. Nothing spectacular as far as speed is concerned but it was an honest effort for an old guy. I left everything at that track.

 Later that evening I did some ham and quad stretches that were painful at first but seemed to give after a while. I guess taking it very easy at first is the key.

Up at 5am but not to go to running group. I really miss those runs. I had to stay home with the kids since my wife had an early day at work. Very sore from my workout last evening so this one was very slow. We are talking 12 minute miles. I listened to "Once a Runner" on my iPod and was very entertained. Will most likely do some core and stretching this evening.

 It is Fall once more, my favorite time of year. I love the smell of the Autumn air and the coolness of the earth. This is my creative time.

Quick run up and down City Creek Canyon. Beautiful day, just enjoyed the surroundings. Tomorrow is the SOJO Marathon and I almost wish I was running it. Probably wouldn't be the wisest idea because St. George is next weekend. Those back-to-back days are probably behind me.

Ran a 5K to support a local Elementary School. It was a beautiful morning and the turn out was awesome.  I have never seen so many kids running a 5K. My pace felt good the entire time and held it together most of the run. There was also a pancake breakfast afterwards. Sometimes it is nice just to run 3 miles and call it good for the day.

Another lunch-time City Creek run. Nice weather, in the 80's. My right knee is killing me.

Met the BBK's at the South Jordan library for a 4 mile tune-up. It was nice to run at an easy pace. We were in the low to mid 9-minute miles the entire team. I can hang with the group at that kind of speed. My knee is killing me! I need to ice and wrap it this evening and take the rest of the week off. This crap always pops up right before the biggest marathon of the year.

Run up City Creek during lunch.

Short tune-up run around the neighborhood. Felt good just to warm up the legs and have a good stretch afterwards.
