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 from competitive racing.

Married for 26 years with two children (20 and 17).

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

A friend asked me to run on a Master's team for USATF Club XC championships in Spokane, interested but my mind and body (and wife!) say no.  My hips have been aching the last two weeks with the increase in mileage lately and running a bit harder to help Katelyn train for NXR.  With that, my mind would still want to compete hard but not sure my body is up for that.  Plus it is in Spokane in December and with all the other stuff happening (travel, work, holiday stuff) and the long drive this time of year, not sure I am up for it.

Skipped an early run to get some recovery time for my hip flexors (most sore in the morning). 

6 easy miles at lunch on a cool day. Retiring the Ride's. (Ride Orange)

2 fast miles with Katelyn after work.  Short as she had a class event to get to. (Supernova Green)

Horrified (again) by the violence in California and the hate demonstrated in Washington, DC.  My son is dealing with issues at his dorm with a student who has broken the weapons code and created a hostile environment for students.  In light of all this hatred, I am concerned for his and others safety and unsure what steps the school is taking.

So proud of Katelyn for running through this race and competing hard and setting a course PR (even with a trip!).  Lunch with my brother then drove home to IF.   A good weekend so far.

Proud of, worried for, frustrated with my kids and some stuff going down in their lives.  Hard to talk to them as I am "Dad" and have them respond rationally.

Thank to you all our veteran's who have served for our national protection.

Likely no run today as I had to go to work early, full day of meetings and men's group tonight.

Lots of stuff going on in my kids life, hard to watch kids struggle and not be able to do much to help.
