Personal:

Pride necessarily sprouts and grows; a pride that can only come from relentless kneading of unwilling flesh, painful months of grinding and burning away all that is heavy, all that is strength-sapping and useless to the body as a projectile. --John L. Parker, Jr., runner/author

The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat. --Theodore Roosevelt

I work as an Attorney in Little Rock, Arkansas.

10 Miles in a pounding rain along Hwy. 171 in Malvern.

7-Mile tempo in 39:36 (5:39 Garmin splits) at Scott Field on a cold and windy morning around 30 degrees.

Good effort and didn't feel too hard.

11 Miles on the icy streets of Little Rock.  Started off at the park behind my house, but I was feeling adventuresome and headed toward Hillcrest where I could run at least a couple miles on the Allsopp Park trails, accessing them from Kavanaugh.

Interesting and fun being out on days when no one else is.

9 Miles in 55:50 on TM.

I accidentally programmed the hotel TM to a preset aerobic workout that fluctuated between -1.0 decline and 2.0 incline. After manually adjusting the incline down to a 0.0 for my one-mile warm-up at 7:13 pace, I accepted my fate, responded accordingly, and ran between 5:27 and 6:27 pace for the remainder of the workout. I averaged 6:12 pace before running a one-mile cool-down.

13 Total Miles including the cool-down and 3 Miles of walking.

Volunteered as a Program Leader for the Little Rockers Kids' Marathon (1+ Mile Course); the idea is for the roughly 2,000 participants ages 7-12 to run 25.2 training miles over the course of several weeks and the final ceremonial mile with everyone in downtown Little Rock on race day. 

My son, Max (7), averaged an 11:22 pace over the 1.37 Miles (Garmin) we covered.

My daughter, Sophia (5), participated as a "mini rocker" and ran her final mile later in the day at our neighborhood park. She ran 11:35!

Very proud Daddy today.
