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

9 miles walking around Moscow, UofI and going to the Homecoming football game.  Vandals disappointed the crowd with lackluster performance and lost a game they should have won.

While on campus and at the tailgating, connected with 7 old Fraternity brothers and their families and toured my own fraternity house (my chapter closed, now a different fraternity but the kids know some of the history and were very interested in me telling them about the house).

No run this morning, slept in as I was tired and it was snowing outside.

Got to see an old friend from out of town and go to a concert to see Steel House Junkies and Never Come Down...good regional bluegrass bands.
