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

Well, interesting weekend, highs and lows.  Today marks my official date for 30 years working for the Department of Energy.  With this milestone, now I just need to keep going 2.5 years to my minimum retirement age to retire!  

This milestone takes on new meaning as of yesterday. I have finally figured out my pain from the past 1.5 months.  Last night it got so bad my wife took me to the emergency room.  Back pain, chest pain, trouble breathing.  After some meds, blood work and a CT scan, I found out I have two pulmonary embolisms (blood clots in my lungs).  They are small and treatable and I wil be on meds, but now to find out why I have them (no causes evident and traditional precursors not present).  At least I can name my pain, which means I can treat it.  All other indicators are great, so I was released early this morning and now just need to have my body get rid of these and hopefully prevent additional occurrences.   Good news is that exercise is a primary treatment, so keep on running!

Glad they found the cause and can treat it. It's worrisome when there's unknown issues.

Ignore if you wish, but there's drastically increased reports of PE since the covid vaccine rollouts. Something to consider. They say having Covid can also increase risk of PE.

Lots of info if you want to look for it.

5 miles today walking.  Pain is down quite a bit the last two days, still have a cough and some shortness of breath.

Today marks the one year anniversary of my son starting his job with the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta!  Time flies!

Got to connect for dinner with old friends and colleagues from my previous position who are in town for meetings (even got a few out especially to see Kami and I who normally don't do the "dinner" thing after meetings!).  I really miss them (have not made friendships like them since in my current job) and the mission, but am glad to be done with some of those stresses of that job.

Just depressed. Living in country that regulates guns less than women's rights while at the same time marketing to men to "increase their performance in bed" and to make sure "she likes it too" but not holding the men accountable as well for the result (just the woman's problem to deal with). Cares more about "unborn" fetuses than living people.  Wants to arm teachers rather than hold law enforcement to ethical standards and their "duty to serve and protect".  Says My body my choice then tells others what to do with their bodies.  Supports a regime that has been proven to have lied, coerced and conspired to stay in power, supported lawlessness at the house of demoncracy but then dispands marches for human rights.  

Still in pain, can't sleep and just pissed.  Ran 10 miles (5 with Moxie) harder with the hopes of dislodging the blood clots in my lungs to travel and be done with it.  Didn't work, now to drink.  (React Black)

So much for celebrating our country.  6 killed celebrating in the heart of the country where the "conservatives" who loves guns just renominated a person for Congress who came out and said recently a win for "white lives".

Also, locally where a group was expressing their free speech at the parade in support of women's rights (which have been reduced), "God fearing" conservatives reaction to their expression:  thrown firecrackers at women and kids, yell obcenities and threaten to shoot them!  So these "gun loving GOOD guys" are threatening violence against others and no response from the crowd or law enforcement.  

So, what is to celebrate?

The Rogers Waters concert last night was fantastic, he sounded great, awesome set list and stage show.  Funny to see how he started the concert and the reaction from some of the crowd (the couple next to us) that eventually took him up on his invitation to leave and go to the bar if they did not like his politics and Human Rights messaging.   

Justin and I are going to Mammoth Cave in Kentucky today.  

5 miles walking and hiking in the caves and trails.

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!

Still saddened and a bit worried about the homicides in Moscow, ID and the unkowns as my daughter and the whole community of the town and University are realing.  Not sure why the UVA homicides are more important on national news, Idahoans lives must not mean as much to east coasters (since many of them don't even know Idaho is a state).

Anything that happens in an east coast state receives more attention than anything in flyover country.

Sorry to hear about this. I thought about you as I was reading the story in the paper just this morning - Indeed I had not heard about it until today.

Thanks guys for the concern. The lack of information combined with what is slowly coming out is making it more worrisome for the community, students and parents. Glad my daughter is getting out of Moscow tomorrow for the holiday break to see if more can be resolved by the time she goes back.
