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 (not realistic now)
  • 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.

Mon - Rainy
Tue - Came a little late to ball, matched up with a young player who was faster and liked to shoot long 3s. I made the game-winning 3 ag him and he said, "That's the only shot he made all game." Then next game he spoke of me making it in his face. I then proceeded to make several shots including the game-winning 3 where he failed to guard me. He's a player, not a baller. Guarded me hard one time, but inconsistent effort and when he failed a few shots he was out of it. Practiced disc distance at Bluffdale park with Thorin.

Wed - Off work early, to Roots, soreness in foot after throwing there, and 2 ball nites. Again a little late, lost to Dallin and tall Bingham friend, they hardly had to try. I was matched with long 3 takers. I played well after getting warm, Dallin stole once, bad turnovers at first. One game w Dallin, he passed to me for mid-range. Knee-brace guy came in and stomped it, 3s from the right side like rain. Got on his team and aces. Also last game to 15 he passed to me for the open walk-off 3.
