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

First time playing pickleball...meh.  It was ok but as a former competitive USTA league tennis player, it was really easy and simple, slow and not very challenging.  I can see it as easy exercise and a light activity to play regularly for fun with friends.  Competitive pickelball though. A guy on the courts was giving us advice as an expert...pretty basic stuff.
