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 - disc
Mon -
Tue - run in morning, shakeout, 1.5, evening ball, made two great passes, one bouncing over defense high to fast breaking tall, one bounce pass on break to game-winning layup; felt really good about knowing what I need to do to integrate the offense 1.5m

Wed - seemed like I tried to run, tried to ball but found Mexicans at Copper Hills ward who were playing soccer, way too advanced for me, played the piano instead, 1m

Thu - 42 min with Nate W to web park loop, back on canal up Turpin's, 4.5, ball played with short general/leader and good group but couldn't quite beat the tall white guys and short fastest Asian, felt peaked and stopped early, played piano, 1.5
Fri - shakeout disc?, adult white elephant Xmas party
Sat - little bit of midrange, then hour run with Nate, longer than wanted to but good, S canal to WJordan park then back up Redwood and zig-zag neighborhoods, 7.5, then played disc with my midrange, right foot a little peaked, tweaked a nerve a few weeks back, need to hold off, then closing the store
Sun - needed rest, watched Goff and Carson
