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

5 miles early before work. (Glide Black)

A 6.5 magntitude earthquake rocked the entire state of Idaho last night. Centered near Sun Valley (the hot spot for COVID-19 as well).  We felt it here but just minor and no issues. Interesting times...focus on what is important in our lives, relationships to each other and the Lord.

Really pissec off right now.  Saw that Sam's club had toilet paper so went to get some...gone.  People had 2-3 cases (50 rolls per case) in their carts..why at a time of shortage does management allow this?  Assholes (lanaguage on purpose).  Then came home to go for a lunch run, got 1/2 mile out and Moxie was attacked by a loose dog, had to beat it off with my lease and kicking at it.  What the F%@&?  Lease you dog or put them in the backyard.  Even in my neighborhood now I have to regularly deal with this shit.  Trying to calm down before my conference call so will try to run again after work.

Went to go put winter shovels away in the shed, ended up having to exterminate and clean up after mice that housed there over the winter.  They actually ate the mouse poison I had stored in the shed...so much for that products effectiveness.  So, had to worry about Coronavirus and Hantavirus at the same time! 

I am likely going to cut down my fruit trees as they are a pain, don't produce effectively and when the plums do come in they make a winter food source for mice (even when I am very diligent about picking fallen fruit).

Celebrating 27 years with Kami who is my best friend and person who demonstrates love and compassion better than anyone I know.  I am blessed to be called her husband and thankful everyday for her impact in my life.

We tried to get some take out for a "picnic" lunch on the foothills, every place was slammed. Got coffee instead and enjoyed the view and conversation.  Getting pizza tonight for dinner and a movie with the family.
