Personal:

†I started running competitively in 2005 and ran my first marathon in 2005. Now retired from competitive racing.

Bend down, O Lord, and hear my prayer;

answer me, for I need your help.
Protect me, for I am devoted to you.
Save me, for I serve you and trust you.
You are my God.
Be merciful to me, O Lord,
for I am calling on you constantly.
Give me happiness, O Lord,
for I give myself to you.
O Lord, you are so good, so ready to forgive,
so full of unfailing love for all who ask for your help.
Listen closely to my prayer, O Lord;
hear my urgent cry.
I will call to you whenever Iím in trouble,
and you will answer me.† - Psalm 86:1-7

6 miles on our new elliptical.  I have to admit I liked it a lot, last time I did this machine at the gym I did not like it and my feet went numb.  Good alternative to running for a while during the cold weather weeks ahead.  Heading to our new gym to do a weight workout after work with Kami.

Weights after work at the gym (at Kami's work, it is really nice and I am able to join too!). 2 miles on the TM at the gym, one mile in 6:30. (Launch Red)

Likely a rest day to give my sore hip a break.  I ended up sleeping most of the day, just felt bad.

8 miles from the house up the road to the State Trust land.  So many RV and camp trailers that it felt like a whole new neighborhood has developed there.  Lots of traffic too, probably just run in the neighborhood and trails around here for the rest of the week. Love the weather! (React Blue)
