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.

Sun - ski after 3 at Alta, got 7 runs in, then pulled P on bike to 'rents, 2.5m

Tues - ran after golf around softball and to car, had a beautiful last throw at 8 with a gimme. More into golfing than running. Played ball, guarded shooter pretty well, didn't take many shots until last game

Wed - played with new guys down 27 W for 1st time, 4 on 4, guarded emo big guy Shawn, only weakness was his emotions, ran floor pretty well but missed a few gimme's, old school thick rims. need to run, get my kicks in

Thu - no running but had the ball game for the ages, once I got warmed up played w/ Wendel, Kevin and new tattooed guy and we had a 4 game run, they relied on me as the scorer and I came through, mostly medium-range jumpers, a few good layup drives and hustle. We beat both teams twice until Kelly came back and guarded me, then we lost twice, but it was great. I opted out the last game knowing I'd be sore, 3 nights straight of ball, Wended'l having shoulder surgery so it was good to give him a parting victory.

Fri - biked to May's, ran from there to gov. housing, last ran there in winter cold from H's?, along tracks to New Pilgrim church, and back. 45 min, then biked P back in slightly dangerous dark evening, 4.5m

Sat - from Draper Park to Corner canyon high school, incredible facility, ran 3/4 mile on track around yelling hs'rs then around perimeter and back, stretched while SUV watched, night run, 1 hr, 5 m

Sun - disc golf with Mark and Kyle, just walked around, but knees were sore after
