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.

13 Miles in just under 90 minutes after dropping my kids off at pre-school this morning. Nice morning in West Little Rock, and I took on some pretty fierce hills during the latter half of this run.

4 Miles in 30 minutes on a really old highway in North Pulaski County after playing 3-4 hours of paint ball with my Sunday School Class and friends.  

Good times.  Snuck in this recovery run while waiting on a few of the more serious paint-ballers get in a couple of extra games.  As for me, this was the first time I had played since high school.

Paint Ball Record:  4 - 0 - 3; I particularly enjoyed capture-the-flag.

8 Miles in 57:30, 5 Miles at 7:30/mile and 3 Miles at 6:40/mile, on treadmill set to 1.0 incline.  Sore from last weekend's paintball...shocked by fast twitch muscle fibers.

11 Miles in 1:12:48 on a cold morning along Highway 171 near my parents' home between Malvern and Hot Springs, Arkansas.  After 2 Miles at 7:00/mile, I averaged 6:32/mile for the final 9 Miles.  

Really enjoyed myself today, and I'm looking forward to some relaxing runs with my brother, Luke, and Dad over the next couple of weeks.

17 Miles in 1:57:03 on a cool afternoon along Highway 171 near my parents' home between Malvern and Hot Springs, Arkansas; 8.5 Miles at 6:53 followed by 8 Miles at 6:48 and a half mile to cool down.  My plan is to focus on negative splits during my long runs as I begin training for Boston.  Lots of hills today, but pretty good effort given some fatigue after pretty high mileage for the first time in several weeks.

am:  Couldn't muster enough energy for my scheduled tempo run, so this morning's treadmill run was really random; 10 Total Miles, including 4 Miles at 6:58/mile, 2 Miles at HMP, and a fast quarter that made my nose bleed...can't be good.  Easy stuff before and in between hard stuff, and a couple of Powerade breaks also.

pm:  6 Miles in 48:00 on treadmill. 

Total:  16 Miles

A few easy miles on some pleasant trails in downtown Little Rock; good conversation with a couple of med students and a coworker who joined me during the run.

At the start of a very long weekend, I finally felt descent today.  And the beautiful, warm, winter sun lifted my spirit; couldn't resist a few fast miles, which were long overdue, but my plan is to continue taking it easy this week in an attempt to recharge my batteries for the new year.  

Short but high quality run that included 1 Mile a 6:58, 3 Miles at 6:04/mile, and a cool down mile to round out 5 Total Miles.

13 Miles of easy jogging at Chinquapin Mountain near Lake Winona, which is about 35 miles west of Little Rock.  I had never run here before, and it was absolutely gorgeous.  One of the guys running with me clued me in to the fact that this is the site of the Arkansas Traveler 100, the highlight of the Arkansas trail runners' series.
