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

Went to an early breakfast with "old" (including me after 30+ years on the job) and retired guys from my organization this morning.  An eclectic bunch but fun to catch up with these guys.  

Later, 9 miles on teh elliptical. (Fastwitch)

First leg done, but spent the day working and helping parents around the house and getting "online" resources set up.  Drove the Camaro and then had a few drinks to try to relax...didn't work because had a hard conversation with our daughter due a "papa bear" response by me.  Not a fine moment on my part.

Tried to sleep in then worked.  Went for a run/walk around 11am in shorts and tank top.  Three issues:  Felt like I was allergic to sunshine as my entire torso and lower body itched like crazy; aerobic capacity low due to elliptical workout and no run AND I still feel some residual lung capacity issues due to blood clots last year.

Another drive in the Camaro to try out a brewery that I have not visited yet.  

Next leg starts tomorrow.
