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

In training all week, likely no lunch runs at all.

3 miles in the late evening after dinner with a friend who is going through a bad divorce. Sad for the family and counseling forgiveness.  (Supernova)

Rest in Peace, Michael Hays. You brought joy and love to those around you. May God bless you and your family.

6am...3 miles with Moxie, then dropped her off and met Craig for 6.5 miles.  Finished off to 15.25 miles total solo.  Beautiful morning. (Guide 7)

Some yardwork, then coffee fellowship with the men's group.  Kids are both going to prom tonight...gulp.

Amazing to watch the breaking2 project video.  So close, 1 second per mile to get it...4:36 pace for 26.2 miles is crazy!
