Short-Term Running Goals:

Keep on running, enjoy it for the sake of running, relax and enjoy life...de-stress.

No racing, retired.

Long-Term Running Goals:

Keep running until this old body says no, running for fun.

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

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)

5am...5 miles with Moxie. (Launch Red)

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!
