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 I’m in trouble,
and you will answer me.  - Psalm 86:1-7

I put some context on Rob's blog- my attempt to understand them.

From Bob on Fri, Jan 08, 2021 at 16:35:17 from 98.212.23.173

They are brainwashed puppets being led by a narcissistic dictator wannabe that is fueling destruction. He wants a war that will serve no purpose other than his own personal interests. Actually booting him is long overdue.

From steve ash on Sat, Jan 09, 2021 at 03:04:42 from 174.52.121.51

Stirring the pot.. Your comment is not helpful at all. It only inflames the division in our country. I am a Trump supporter but also willing to see a legal succession of power. Demeaning them by your statement seems to encompass all of us. I don't approve by a long shot what happened at the Capitol. However, most of these people were peacefully demonstrating their concerns about an election process that is full of holes and question.

From jtshad on Sat, Jan 09, 2021 at 08:43:11 from 75.174.18.229

Here is the bigger spoon...Trump is going to be impeached (with support from he own party) for the SECOND time this go around for inciting violence and sedition. 5 people are dead including a Capitol policeman whom these rioters supposedly support. These people were not peacefully protesting they were trespassing on federal property and destroying property...just like the rioters you hate who vandalized property in Portland (which was equally as horrific). There still has not been proven any issues or holes in the democratic election process, just sore losers who did not like the final outcome. Glad you are willing to support a Consitutionally mandated transition of power, the President is still not and being a baby.

From Jon on Sat, Jan 09, 2021 at 14:04:00 from 96.33.80.155

I hope they don't impeach him, just because of what the impacts will be. There's 11 days, let his term run out. Impeaching him will just fire up his base like nothing before it. If Trump followers thought the system marginalized them before and had double standards, this will cement it for them, drive further radicalization, and greatly increase the odds of violence.

It's a bad look, too- Twitter allows China and Iran and others to regularly threaten others, but ban Trump? And leftists riot for months, burning and murdering, cheered by democratic leaders the whole time, vs 1 day for Trump's followers that is subsequently condemned by all republican leaders? And social media further deplatforming political opponents will add fuel to the fire of those that think big tech/dems want to silence and suppress them.

I say just leave it be. Don't egg them on, let it die quietly, don't make Trump into a martyr. Dems will already have all of Congress and the Presidency, impeachment will just antagonize the losers with no realistic benefit.

Rash political decisions in times of high emotion rarely end well. See this insightful article by a very liberal reporter (especially the video from Barbara Lee just after 9/11). https://greenwald.substack.com/p/violence-in-the-capitol-dangers-in-bbe

Hi Jeff, do you feel totally recovered at this point? Iím on day 14 since my symptoms started. Feel better now but still not 100%. Frustratingly slow recovery. I get wiped out every afternoon. Sometimes feel ok and other times feel sick again. Hope you are fully recovered.

From jtshad on Tue, Feb 02, 2021 at 20:01:15 from 75.174.18.247

I am in the same place you are, some afternoons I just have to take a nap and feel wiped out. Mostly have to fall asleep each night by 9pm due to being tired.

Hope you keep getting better as you proceed in your recovery. For many, symptoms last a while (my son still does not have his smell back, two months later).

Cheers and take care of yourself.

From Jon on Wed, Feb 03, 2021 at 19:42:43 from 96.33.80.155

2 months no smell- wow. Does he have sense of taste?

From jtshad on Thu, Feb 04, 2021 at 11:05:58 from 141.221.191.225

Yes, he has his taste but smell is taking much longer to come back. He says he can sense differences but not actual smells. I have a friend who caught it earlier than Justin and she says her's is only about 50% back..she can sometimes smell initial scent but then goes away quickly.

Had to work most of today (my day off).  Went for a run around lunchtime to work off stress from a really crappy start at work.  @!$%ing dog owners in the neighborhood during the day.  ANOTHER DOG ATTACKED Moxie after it charged a mom and her little girl just before us.  The onwer lady was outside and tried to hold back this huge dog by its collar and all it did was drag her across the snow before she let go and the dog charged us and attacked Moxie. I kicked it in the head a few times and the owner final grabbed it.  ARGH. (Glide Black)

I've applied for about 15-20 jobs in my life!

From Jon on Tue, Mar 23, 2021 at 09:50:32 from 104.129.205.25

Yeah, I don't doubt it's a tough market. 60 is a lot- kuddos to him for persistence.

That seems like a lot, too, Rob. I don't know how many I applied with resumes, but I only interviewed for 3 in my life (2 at the end of college, then 1 when I changed to current company). I may be more of the exception these days- only 2 companies in 19 years.

From jtshad on Tue, Mar 23, 2021 at 09:58:20 from 141.221.191.225

He is working hard, getting a bit frustrated though. He just needs one to get started in his next phase of life.

I interviewed a lot in college and ended up with 3 offers. Now been with the same organization for 29 years. Applied several times for new jobs and promotions and finally got one 5 years ago.

4:15am...back to bad sleep at night.  Woke up at 3am and could not get back to sleep.  Out the door early for 8 miles with Moxie then 2 more solo. (Solana)

Hoping for a better day today.  Can finally dial back some anxiety as of today both of my kids have jobs!  My daughter, finishing her freshman year of college, has a summer internship with a local engineering company!  My son, who graduates college the first of June, just got confirmation of his job with an organization he wanted to work with since high school!  Whew!

6 miles on a nice day at lunch in new shoes.  Maybe if I can wear myself out I can sleep tonight. (Nike React Infinity Black)

Congrats on being the one parent in about 100 who manages to raise a kid who graduates from college in 3 years and then lands a dream job before graduating.

You must have done something right!

Congratulations for both kids for their jobs!

Got to drive my Camaro in 92 degrees with the windows down and the radio blarring on one of the most fun roads ever!  SR88 to Canyon Lake.  Awesome!  

Now for some beers in the warm weather!

Feel like crap, no run but stayed in bed all day.

Ended up really dehydrated, had an episode of Vaso-vasal syncopy, family called the paramedics.

Doing better as the evening progressed but still not near 100%.

Have you been diagnosed with something?

From jtshad on Thu, May 06, 2021 at 05:57:26 from 75.174.44.181

I ended up being dehydrated and ate something that did not agree with me.

From Jon on Thu, May 06, 2021 at 20:03:02 from 75.136.125.47

Holy cow- glad you are ok. I've never heard of vaso-vasal syncopy.

Low blood flow to the brain, caused me to faint.

Not running today to ensure I get recovered from yesterday.  Have a big weekend and want to be better for all the activities.
