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.

Since I ran my last road marathon in March 2016 (my last road race of any distance), I've had bilateral inguinal hernia surgery (May 2016) and ran three 100-Mile ultras (October 2016, July 2016, and October 2017)...but it's good to be back! And now maybe Rob Murphy, Jeff, and other FRB'rs I met at Boston back in 2012 will comment on my race!! In all seriousness, these guys have continued to be supportive, and over the years, they've provided encouragement and tips as well.

On to the race. It's funny actually. Because I wasn't sure what splits I should target, I settled on 6:40/mile because it provided for easy 3- and 6-mile split calculations. So I'm pleased with my 6:39/mile average and relatively consistent pacing.  

I stayed near JFK and got up at 2 am, so it was a long day. But the cloudy and misty weather provided cool temps for a good time running.

Thanks to my wife Diana for staying home and watching Evan while I wondered around NYC trying to master the public transportation system for two days. As always, I couldn't do any of this without her love and support.
