This message means that when Hawkeye tried to run the "blah" job next time, 
the previous "blah" that it had started was still running.

Hawkeye has basically has two options at this point:
1. Kill the old one and start the new one
2. Let the old one live, skip this one.

The default behavior is #2.

In and of itself, it's not hurting anything, but you might want to speed up 
whatever processing "blah" is doing or increase the period.

Hope this helps.  :-)
