Short-Term Running Goals:

Keep on running, enjoy it for the sake of running, relax and enjoy life...de-stress.

No racing, retired.

Long-Term Running Goals:

Keep running until this old body says no, running for fun.

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 I’m in trouble,
and you will answer me.  - Psalm 86:1-7

No run today.  Too busy with work then second COVID vaccine shot.  Also, when I had a chance to run, it was SNOWING outside.  Just going to have a few beers instead.

Very sore shoulder this morning from the COVID-19 vaccine shot.  Woke up to a fews messes at work.  SO I had to get out for a run to work off frustration.  Too many fires, too little staff and support.  Calculated <670 actual work days left until retirement.

10 miles solo as my shoulder was too sore to have to reign in Moxie. (Launch Red)

Today sucked as the symptoms from the second shot hit hard this afternoon.  Total body aches and fatigue.
