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 miles today. Late night flight to AZ so today took it easy and relaxed. Had to buy a new battery for the Camaro as we had to jump it three times. Was the original battery so it was time.

No running today, but lots and lots of shoveling snow, must be a 1 foot+ during the day.  

My son's flight home was delayed so he would miss his connection, so we get him home for another night so he can catch the early flight out tomorrrow.

6  miles solo on very sloppy roads, hardest run I have done in a while to get to  2,965 miles for the year.  (Xodus)

A quick review of my running stats (for my own validation) since I started training for marathons and really tracking mileage in 2005. Prior to 2005, I didn't track mileage besides in my day planner and ran at most 3 times a week for about 2-5M each time for the previous 5 years (2000-2004) as I was more focused on weight lifting and tennis in this period. Estimate that I ran about 3,000 miles total prior to making running my central athletic focus in 2005.

Mileage pre 2005: 3,000 miles (est. based on paper logs before electronic logging)

Mileage 2005-2006: 3,878 miles (Coolrunning.com)

Mileage 2007-2020: 47,047 miles (2963 - '07, 3706 - '08, 3760 - '09, 3659 - ‘10, 3725 - '11, 3468 – ’12, 3256 – ’13, 3395 – ’14, 3306 – ’15, 3171 – ’16, 3104 – ’17, 3298 – ’18, 2910 – ‘19, 3326 - '20)

Mileage to date 2021: 2,965 miles (12/31/21).  Ran the equivalent distance from Boise, ID to Sugarloaf Key, FL!

Total lifetime miles:  56,890 miles
