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 5am and don't get home until 5:40pm. I try to get a short run in before work and on a blue moon I do a little something else after work. Some might call that a weekend warrior, but I make an honest effort during the week as well. Say hello!

Got up  to go to work this morning. Cheyenne had already gotten up because she couldn't sleep. Asked me to stay home today because she thought it might be the day. Ten minutes later we are getting ready to go to the hospital. 2 hours later, our son was born. Wow! That was a quick wonderful experience. Now we have a beautiful healthy baby boy :)

Workout the day after donating blood. The difference was noticeable (at least I choose to blame my diminished energy on yesterday's blood donation!).

5x1 mile at lactate threshold effort with 1 minute rests. 8x200m at mile effort with 200m recoveries. I sweat a lot and was ready to be done. 11.42, including warm up and cooldown, which together were almost 4 miles. (11.42 in 1:23:00)
