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

For the past 2.7 years, I have been performing in two job roles at my work.  My "old" job was finally posted today.  Bitter sweet as I like the program and people, but will be nice to focus on one job and learn more about other programs and activities.  Maybe I can finally get my mind settled and focused again as the two different and distinct jobs has been getting harder to balance effectively.  Hopefully now I can focus on being a more engaged and effective supervisor too (at least to my own expectations, boss indicates he has been happy with what I have been doing but need to do more in the long run).

Drove to Driggs, ID for a funeral of one of Justin's best college buddies father, a man we knew a little through mutual friends.  An inspirational memorial for a man who committed his life to God, his family and his country and to peace.  He died too young but made a significiant impact.  

3 miles after getting home. (Supernova Green)
