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.

6 Miles, including 4X400m repeats and 1X800m, at the Scott Field track in the pounding, cold rain.

Good stuff on a day I wasn't expecting to run because of holiday party prep and travel to my folks' place outside of Malvern.

14 Miles and change with Dave on what's becoming our "standard" River Trail run, at least on business days.

Hit the 4,000 Mile mark for calendar year 2013 today. Would be lying if I said it wasn't a goal, but alas, I don't feel any differnt than I did yesterday!

So it goes...
