      Great post Mike. It reminded me that we only have this moment right now. We can choose to engage right now and make something of it. The past and the future mean nothing compared to this moment. Thanks for the reminder Mike!

      Everyone has distracted days, but if it becomes a pattern, there are things that have to be looked into. I suspect you were just distracted today though. If you can, get the tooth fixed... they will probably just smooth it off, but you want it looked at.

      Sorry to hear about the garage door incident Mike. That sensor mounted on the ceiling doesn’t see me many times unless I wave my arms. And no worries on the jacket, not exactly the right size but I’ve got you covered! 👍

      We can’t always be perfect everyday - you need to allow yourself to be down or just don’t have the energy to be your best. That is okay, just accept it. We can’t bloom all year.

      I used to race and train all year. After working with a health coach 2 years ago I now have an off season part of my year when I just run as I feel. No real racing. It’s helped me become a better runner and I don’t really burn out anymore.

      Nice comment by Ruth. I also run easy from December to February with no speed training. And I usually take December off from racing. You can't train hard all year.

      Sore makes me happy!!! LOL I hope that knee settles down. I am sure it will. I often wonder if I should run until what ever is sore starts to act up or keep my runs short...under the mileage I know will irritate it. But then when do you increase the mileage again? Such a fine line. Great job today and this week!!
