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 on a cold and wet morning. Ran to Scott Field and knocked out 16X200m striders; nice and smooth.

Another wave of ice and snow hit Arkansas just as I was returning from New Orleans on Wednesday evening.  I ran the 5.5 Miles to my downtown Little Rock, tried to get some work done, and then ran the 5.5 Miles back home.

Very hazardous (and necessarily slow), but I only fell once.

Out the door at 3:30 am for 7 Miles on a nice, cool morning. Ran to Scott Field for 8X400m Repeats, 6 of which were run in around 82 seconds (took my legs a stretch to wake up).

Off to Charleston, SC with my Dad, Mark, to celebrate his 60th Birthday! My brother, Luke, is driving down from Charlottesville to meet us.

Update from Charleston: 8 Total Miles after walking to and from Hall's Chop House from hotel; great dinner with Dad and Luke.

Completed the Swamp Fox Adventure Race in the Francis Marion National Forest near Charleston, SC, where we stayed. 

Covered 90k in 12.5 hours with my Dad and Luke, as a three-man team, in this event that included orienteering, running, kayaking, and mountain biking.

This was a great endurance adventure in celebration of my Dad's 60th anniversary. And it certainly is something we'll never forget! 

Approximately 20 Miles on foot.

5 Miles in just under 30 mins on TM; Miles 1-3 at 6:00/mile and Miles 4 and 5 at 5:56/mile.

Good effort on a busy day. Some of my best tempo work is dictated by circumstances. I think there's a salient point to be made here about not overthinking and maximizing every training effort, no matter how short (or long).

8 Total Miles including 3 Miles commuting/walking.

I'll take a 3 am run any day over a 9 pm one...

The only thing that got me through tonight's sanity run were visions of John Landy and his late-night interval workouts after a full day of work and graduate school.  For me, tonight's run was more modest, with 8X200m striders at Scott Field and lots of self-reflection.

If only I had Landy's top-end speed...then I could be an Olympian instead of an ultra runner!
