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

Still sick but a bit better, actually going into work for part of the day to take care of a few things.  

3 mile walk with Moxie after work on a warm day to get some fresh air and get out of the house/room that I have spent the last 3+ days in.

5 miles walking in gold canyon in nice weather. I am feeling most better but now kami is getting sick just as we are heading to the Billy Joel and Stevie Nicks concert tonight.  Kami is way tougher than me to make the concert based on the way I felt!

5 miles enjoying the warm weather before heading back to the tundra.

Really hope we did not pass this along to Kami's folks, at least Kami is feeling a little better (enough to travel home) but it sure seems to linger.

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 2007-2021: 59,226 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, 2965 – ’21, 2336 – ‘22)

Mileage to date 2023: 1996 miles (12/31/23).  

Total lifetime miles:  61,222 miles
