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

Personal:

Born in 1968.  I live in Idaho Falls, ID.  I started running competitively in 2005 and ran my first marathon in 2005. Now retired.

Married for 25+ years with two children (19 and 16).

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

No run today.  Pleasant morning hanging out with the Murphy's before packing up Justin and driving back to Idaho Falls.  Did some house chores then took pictures of Katelyn for her prom.  Tired.

5 miles at lunch on a nice but breezy day.  Ran a 3 mile MP tempo for the first three miles trying catch my buddy Ron who started 4 minutes ahead of me.  Caught him then slow a bit as I was now battling the northernly wind in my face.  Good run, have not run two runs at a quicker pace in a while.

5 miles at lunch on a sunny and warm day. Started slow (still felt tired and stressed from a busy morning) but then saw a rabbit to chase.  Caught him then he tried to catch and pace off of me, not happening so I ran a bit harder until he dropped. (Guide White)

Meetings most of the day.  Really great meetings with counterparts!  A successful day.

6 miles from the hotel to the Washington Memorial to meet Jose for a run around the mall (US Capital to Lincoln Memorial).  Hot and humid, but again realized that this weather does not bother me too much so it was fun.  4 miles with Jose. (Supernova Green)

Showered then happy hour at Tiki TNT for beers and nice light food and talking with Devin (bartender).  Spicy Margarita at the hotel thanks to Zach (hospitality manager).  This DC Wharf area is pretty great place to stay for my next trip to DC.  Leaving for Alexandria, VA tomorrow.

More meetings at HQ then moving to Alexandria for a working group the rest of the week.  Took the water taxi from the Wharf to Alexandria.  Great day professionally (really good meetings!), personally (opportunity to mentor a young guy new to our group) and spiritually (great faith conversation with an elisted Air Force man at the hotel bar).  Wow, a good day.

More meetings today.  No second run instead had a beer and dinner with my coworker from ID, Vic, who was also in town.  My daughter was excited that we ate at her favorite restaurant here, Pines of Florence.
