Completed 15 mi total mixing in 1 mi "faster than normal" intervals during last half.  Really down on myself lately.  I feel like a "ham & egger" at everything (husband, father, runner, career, etc.) and mostly below average.  Not sure of what I'm doing these days.  You know, just feel like I'm taking up space.

Thanks for the encouragement Dave. Indeed, we are friends with similar backgrounds. Sorry for not keeping in touch more lately. Really fighting the urge to just withdraw, but the desire to check up on you keeps me coming back.

Thanks for checking up on me...I appreciate the encouragement as well. Maybe your due for a personal retreat of some sort.
