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

7 miles on the Milner trail before leaving camp for Cottonwood.  A great last trail run at the family reunion. 

Fighting off the beginnings of a bad head cold, my nose feels like it weighs 15 pounds and I have a terrible headache.  It could be a long(er) drive home tomorrow...that will suck!

Slept in a bit and almost didn't go out due to this nagging cough.  7 easy miles with Moxie.  Ran with Curt for about 2 miles and saw Andrea out on the pathway...she is heading to Africa and London this week for a work trip!  (Kinvara)

6 miles in 42:50 at lunch on a very warm and sunny day.  Still getting over the cold.  (Cortana)

4:30am...8 very easy miles with Moxie.  I had a hard time getting up and going today but was glad I didn't give in to the laziness.  (Ride)

I got out right at 11am for a lunch run (before it heated up).  I was thinking I was going to try some intervals or a tempo, but my head, legs and stomach did not agree on that.  1 mile easy, 1 mile at easy MP, 3 miles at fast easy pace, 1.25 miles and easy MP for 6.25 miles in 42:10 (6:44), not what I wanted today.  (Cortana)

4:45am...easy 10K with Moxie.  I am having a really hard time getting out the door for my morning runs this week.  (Ride)

6.3 miles in 45 minutes around the greenbelt at lunch today.  This felt very easy but I just could not get in a good groove. I started off easy, built up a bit to 6:40ish pace then just had to leave it about here for the rest of the run.  Just go with it and run another day.  (Cortana)

Committed to TCM and the US Master's Marathon Championships in October. I bought my plane tickets, have the hotel (a great deal due to connections...thanks, you know who are!), registered with the race and USATF, got travel money from the race.  So, Minneapolis here I come (Steve, looking forward to running with you again...Walter, come run this one and skip SGM!).

I slept in and went out around 7:00 for a longer solo run.  I ran 13.1 miles solo (first time I have worn my IPod in a long time!) in about 1:28 through SRL and around the greenbelt  to John's Hole Bridge and back.  Ran into Deborah, Shelley and Gama.  After getting home, Justin and I went out for 2 miles in 16:30 then I finished off the 17 miles in 1:59:50. 

On the last stretch, I had to rescue a kitten from the middle of the street which had been hit by a car and was missing an arm.  I grabbed it and took it 0.25M to the vet down the street for them to take care of it...not the best way to end a run.
