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.

Today, I paced the twelfth running of my hometown race, the Little Rock Marathon, in light rain and cool temps. This was my fifth finish at Little Rock, my tenth marathon overall, and my first time pacing (any race). There was another first for me during this race, when, at the unsanctioned Mile Marker 24.5 "aid station", I stopped to enjoy a cold brew.

I finished comfortably in 3:09 and change (3:10 Pace Group), sending ahead the two gentlemen (Tony and Gareth) who stuck with me from start to finish.

Thanks to my wife, Diana, for the support and kiss near our old apartment in downtown LR (near Mile Marker 10 and Governor's Mansion), and to my parents and kids, Max and Sophia, for the support and hugs at Mile Marker 16.

March ice finally thawed out, so along with other Arkansans, I was able to get out of the house today. After work, I ran 9 Miles along the slushy Aransas Trail (South) on a cold afternoon.
