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

10 miles walking around the chateau of Jospehine, wife of Napoleon in Le Pecq.  Afterwards, we visited the Palace of Versailles.  Overwhelming extravangence, ego in the times of King Louis XIV, XV, XVI.  Unchecked ego and being out of touch with the reality of the times.

Got some extra sleep, caught up (mostly) on work and got things unpacked from our trip.

Went for 4 miles with Moxie outside, first time in shorts in Idaho in 2023, then 1 mile solo (Moxie...and I...are out of running shape). (Solana)

4 miles with Moxie and 2 miles solo.  Nice day, ran in shorts.  Moxie's running days are likely over as she is slowing and struggling a bit.  Likely just walks from now on...sigh. (Solana)

Kami is recovering very well!

3 miles later in the day to enjoy the weather.
