79 year old women being mugged in church parking lots.
In home Healthcare givers stealing $32k from 91 year olds they are caring for.
Babies being left on doorstep -- 2nd in the last few weeks.
It's all so horrible, and my thoughts are with those who survive these kinds of things and I pray that those violators will somehow be able to live with themselves and what they've done. Chances are the latter won't matter much. I just hate reading these kinds of things. Although it makes me grateful for the blessings I do have and reminds me of how important it is to give back in some way.

I started to feel like kah-kah yesterday and just quickly went downhill. Would have been very easy for me to blow off my Fartlek, because I really felt that bad. At first I thought maybe I was catching Cassie's crud, but there's no sign of infection. Pollen is low, but we had all sorts of rain several days ago, so maybe it's mold spores? I have to get to an allergist one day and figure out what bothers me so much. I woke up at 3:30 with a pounding head and congestion. Today is one of those days I have to be at work; I can't call in "dead."
Surprisingly, my run was okay! Even though I didn't do it exactly right. I did get the distance and the basic idea in. I did 1 mile at marathon pace, 1 mile at marathon pace -:30, 1 mile at marathon pace +1:30 and 1 mile at marathon pace -1:30. I actually made all the times, except the -:30... was off by about 7 seconds. My marathon pace -1:30 was actually way faster, under 12! That was kind of surprising to me. Coach wants to target 12 as my half marathon pace. I would love to see that happen and I'm trying to trust that it will. He said things are going in the right direction, so I'll just keep working.
