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

We woke up early to watch the Olympic Marathon...what a race!  Congrats to Stephen Kiprotich of Uganda (1st place) and Meb Keflhezghi of the USA (4th place) on great races.  Motivated me for my long run today.

I ran a solo 18 miler through SRL and around the greenbelt through Freeman Park then down Sunnyside in 2:02:00 (6:46 avg).  Threw in some MP miles and ran out of steam at the end.  When I got home, I ran 1.25 miles with Justin and Moxie in 10:30 for 19.25 miles overall.

Now for a family birthday party for Justin who is now a teenager!

4:30am...slow easy 6 miles with Moxie.  A bit sore from yesterday's long run and hard to get up early again and face going back to work.  (ride)

6 easy miles at lunch in 46 minutes. A nice day for a run, but legs are still a bit tired.  (Cortana)

4:45am...hard to get up this morning after sleeping 9 hours each night last week while camping.  Got out the door a bit late and only had time for an easy 6.25 miles with Moxie before heading to work early.  Likely the only run of the day due to a busy schedule at work.  (ride)

4:30am...6 easy miles with Moxie. (Ride)

At lunch, I ran the Cady Tucker Run for Life 5 mile race in Freeman Park.  This is a safety awareness run put on in the name of a 12 year old who was killed by a diabetic driver 10 years ago.  The RD asked me to run the race and give a talk afterwards, which was a real honor. 

5 1 mile loops of Freeman park.  An honest rolling course on a day in which it was hard to breath due to all the smoke in the area from the fires.   I won the race in 29:12 by almost 6 minutes (Saige was second overall!).  Fun time with lots of people I know in an easy MP effort today (due to the bad air).  I am still hacking a little a few hours later!  For the win I won $100, not bad for a tempo run at lunch!  (Cortana)

6.3 miles with Rob Murphy on the Foothills loop early. Thanks for the hospitality Murphy's!

Flew to San Francisco for my uncle's wedding this weekend.  Spent the day sightseeing and walking around Fisherman's Wharf and riding the cable cars. 

Got back to the subway late and walked through the Mission district back to my uncles house.  Quite a walk in the dark on a hilly route...kinda made my family nervous but made it with no issues.  The rest of todays mileage is from all our touring around.

Lots of walking again around SF.  Rode the city bus from my uncle's house to downtown and walked to the Palace of Fine arts then to the Wharf to meet family.  Lots of miles again.

Bachelor dinner tonight with all my uncles buddies...a fun time!

8 mile run up to the top and around Bernal Heights park in San Francisco.  Quite a climb to the park then ran 7 loops around the ~ 1 mile loop.  Half up a 5% grade then the other half back down to the start.  Quite a hill workout today.

Rest of the day at the wedding and reception for my uncle.  A nice wedding and a big traditional chinese food reception...8 course meal of very real chinese food, a great time!
