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

6 miles at lunch (fatlek run) in 45 minutes.  Beautiful day for a run! (Fastwitch).

Life is about to get hectic and my promotion was announced to the office and I will start my new position next week (while still doing the old job for a while as I work to transition it effectively.)  Kinda bitter sweet as I really like my current program, but change and a promotion is pretty exciting.

Massage after work, then watched the debate. Had to get out to work out frrustration for a couple of miles around the neighborhood.  This is really then best two people that we have to choose from?  Gah! (Boost)
