Long-Term Running Goals:

My main goal is just to stay healthy.  I was injured every year in my college career except for one.  I would like to reverse that trend and always stay injury-free.

Currently coming back from a long 9-month injury lay-off. I was able to start back up running again in December and have been building my fitness back ever since.

Personal:

I am a family man.  I am married to my beautiful wife Amy (who also ran at Weber and is quite the runner).  We have three beautiful daughters named Evelyn (4 years old), Hannah (2 year old), and a new baby girl born in March, named Nora.

TRAIL RUN AT SNOW BASIN

I met Ken at his place at 6:00 and we drove up to the Wheeler Canyon Trailhead, just below Pineview. From there we ran up Wheeler, taking the Arc and Nord Trail, then hit the Green Pond Trail, Needles, Maple, and then back down Icebox to Wheeler. The first 1.5 miles were very runnable despite the rain, but after that it was a mudfest the rest of the way and the pace dropped substantially.

During mile 3 a moose ran across the trail about 15 meters in front of me. And then toward the end of the run before hitting Icebox, another moose came crashing out of the bushes and ran parallel to us about 20 feet off the trail. It easily outgained us, but then stopped and just stood there just off the trail again about 15 meters in front of us. We didn't want to get any closer and we couldn't get it to move by making noise. So eventually backtracked a bit and took a the other trail at a fork in the trail. The trails just before Icebox were basically streams as opposed to trails, tons of water rushing down the trail. The scenary was incredible up there in the clouds with the rain and the lush green.

Overall we averaged a 8:34/mile pace. My stabilizing muscles are a bit tired from all the slipping and sliding in the mud. Great morning run though.

10 miles easy thru Ogden with Denver, Dave, and Ben, avg pace 7:27/mile. We ran thru Jefferson historic district and saw all the old mansions of the early 1900s and then also hit the Enchanted Round-a-bout, a magical place where Ben is a 2:17 marathoner as long as he's there, but once he leaves....it's back to 2:25. Dave wanted to be a 3:50 miler whilst in the Enchanted Round-a-bout, but there are some unrealistic things that not even magic can make happen...

10 miles easy on the Riverdale Parkway with Dave and Ben, avg pace 7:22/mile. Not much soreness left, except my right calf was tight the second half of the run. Still a lot of deep fatigue too. It'll be just easy running this week.
