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

3 mile walk in the evening. Taking most of this week off as I still do not feel great. Hard time sleeping more than 3 hours.  Pain and lethargy are mostly constant right now, but hopefully seeing some improvement. (Glide Black)

5 miles today walking.  Pain is down quite a bit the last two days, still have a cough and some shortness of breath.

Today marks the one year anniversary of my son starting his job with the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta!  Time flies!

Got to connect for dinner with old friends and colleagues from my previous position who are in town for meetings (even got a few out especially to see Kami and I who normally don't do the "dinner" thing after meetings!).  I really miss them (have not made friendships like them since in my current job) and the mission, but am glad to be done with some of those stresses of that job.

5 miles walking at lunch and after work (2 miles with Moxie).  Still have some issues, one being I need to reset my clock as I have been waking up at 3am so by 8am I am very tired.  Getting better everyday but still not back fully.  (Launch Red)

Compelling and frightening viewing of the findings from the committee tonight.

4 mile run/walk with Moxie, then another 4 mile run/walk with Katelyn.  Felt good to run and take deep breaths, but still have a bit of capacity limit and got winded easily. (React Black)

7 mile walking with Kami.

Watched "TopGun:Maverick" tonight...good movie.

A friend of mine who is in the medical professional relayed that a mutual friend had a PE a while back and that it took them about a year to get their full lung capacity/breathing back.

Yard work in the morning.  By the end of the day, I think I had overdone it.

4 miles walking. I am feeling old today...shoulder pain, but more so as we no longer have any teenagers or younger in our house as of two.  Two kids both in their 20's. Means I am old. (Launch Red)

Just depressed. Living in country that regulates guns less than women's rights while at the same time marketing to men to "increase their performance in bed" and to make sure "she likes it too" but not holding the men accountable as well for the result (just the woman's problem to deal with). Cares more about "unborn" fetuses than living people.  Wants to arm teachers rather than hold law enforcement to ethical standards and their "duty to serve and protect".  Says My body my choice then tells others what to do with their bodies.  Supports a regime that has been proven to have lied, coerced and conspired to stay in power, supported lawlessness at the house of demoncracy but then dispands marches for human rights.  

Still in pain, can't sleep and just pissed.  Ran 10 miles (5 with Moxie) harder with the hopes of dislodging the blood clots in my lungs to travel and be done with it.  Didn't work, now to drink.  (React Black)
