Goal Type:

Age Division Winner

Running Accomplishments:

Eden 10-miler 65:47

Half Marathon 1:26:17

5K 18:01

 I rank somewhere between the competitive recreational runner and the competitive highschool runner. Here's the scale:

10 - World record holder; 9 - Olympic Athlete; 8 - National elite; 7 - Professional runner; 6 - College All-american; 5 - College runner; 4 - Local elite; 3 - Competitive runner; 2 - Recreational runner; 1 - Jogger

It's a tough scale.

Short-Term Running Goals:


  • Run for fun and health, be fit in my 40s
  • Run a strong half marathon, under 1:25, good, under 1:20, great.

Long-Term Running Goals:

  • Be a disciplined runner, to be competitive in my age category, and feel strong while racing.
  •  Somehow actually put together a full year of running: increased discipline and decreased distraction and injuries
  • Be a 17/36 guy for 5K/10K (maybe)
  • Be a competitive Master's runner


Spoken for, Christian, piano player, soli deo gloria, at least that's the ideal. Living for Triune God, beautiful wife, cute sons, self; hopefully in that order but Adam's nature and my own choices, not to mention worldly temptations like to play with the ideal.

Idealism, tempered by reality, with a healthy skepticism.

Sun - run to homestead, felt good, like I wanted to run faster, enjoying racing pace, tacked on loop around "newer" homes, 3.5m
Mon - from Kearns JRP to Hunter to Mt View Corridor path, uphill S w Jo, wonderful exploratory run, 1 hr, 6 m;
Tue - short workout w B, run discing before work, 2m; ball guarded baldy, fouled him a few times but also got my hands on the ball, overly guarded quick cutter-guard, letting him get spacing for 3s, lost every game but played well, losing close ones, 1.5m
Wed - hike w B Olympus rock then parallel to outcropping, discovered open storm drain, 1.5m
Thu - ran w Draco canal to Bible Baptist, saw red-shirted revivalist who saw later in store, on the return against the wind dragging Draco, 3m; ball good, 4 on 4 half court had a good team but lost to slow white guy shooting lights out, had young skinny son who could almost dunk; for full court guarded by young overseer who gets in my head, can't outmuscle his short squattiness, find myself forcing up shots, played a little better posting up but forced some 3s, still need to fill out the "go-to-scorer/shooter" role; 1.5m feeling better, not so sore after ball anymore
Fri - rain, almost sleet all day, really wanted to run, getting to where I feel different if I don't run that day
