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

It was raining when I woke up so had coffee and watched some streaming shows, then went to the gym for weights.  After the rain stopped, ran 7 miles solo in the neighborhood. (Pegasus)

I watched "Flight/Risk" on Netflix this morning. It reinforced my focus of my job, position as Division Director and my team on our responsibility as civil servants and stewards of the taxpayers interests on asking hard questions, probing for the right answers and not bending to "corporate interest"...even if they make noise to the politicians.

University of Idaho career fair as a recruiter with 227 other companies!  That is a lot for students to take in and find connections.  Fun to talk with students interested in both full time jobs (my focus) and internships (I am not ready with that program yet).  I actually found more and better interest from business and science majors that I did engineer students which honestly quite surprised me.  

Had dinner with an old high school and college (fraternity brother) and his wife which was great!
