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

I was supposed to go to Moscow, ID to see my daughter for Parent's weekend.  However, my dad's health issues are keeping me here to help care for him and my mom.   Kami went up with Katelyn's boyfriend's parents though.  The girls can have a fun day or two together.

5 miles on a beautiful day in the early afternoon while my parents were taking a nap. (Impulse)

My back is feeling "better" but still has some difficulty sleeping.  Going to watch this and take it easy for a few days.

Pain in shoulder/back is frustrating me...it comes and goes, moves around my body and goes from not feeling it to excrutiating.  Another rest day and meds to try to deal with it.

Back/shoulder was good most of the day yesterday, but last night was rough again.

Another day off to help recover. My back and shoulder have been much better today, so an easy 3 mile walk today.  (Glide Black)
