Personal:

Happily married with one kid. Chemical engineer, now studying statistics. Although I've always maintained a healthy level of fitness, I didn't pick up running until junior year at BYU. Now I live in Idaho, where I leave for work at 4:30am and don't get home until 5:30pm. I try to get a short run in before work and usually something during lunch. My focus in running is improving my marathon time, but I like to participate in all the races I can. I am a Honey Stinger Hive ambassador and hoping to qualify for the Boston Marathon for the first time this August by completing the Pocatello Marathon in under 3 hours. Say hello!

"Early in". Actually it took 40 extra minutes to get here, because the highway was closed and we had to go down to Blackfoot to take the other highway. Some snowy weather these days... (7.77 in 1:00:00)

Early in. Workout day. 2 mile warm up, 3x(1mile LT, 1 minute recovery), 3 minute recovery, 3x(1km VO2max, 3 minute recovery), 4x(400m mile pace, 400m recovery). (10.6 in 1:15:14)

Also signed up for the Pocatello marathon with the Valentine's Day deal ($40). So no STG this year, which is okay. In-laws live down there and don't want to have to travel so much in one season since we'll probably be there for November or December.

No run. My ankle decided to swell up a few hours after Friday's run. This time, very unexpected.
