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

had to double take for a second when i saw your name under recent entries. good to see you back Wesley!

From Rob Murphy on Wed, Jun 03, 2020 at 20:03:57 from 216.241.205.160

You're back in Arkansas?

Try to do something about Tom Cotton ok?

From Rob Murphy on Wed, Jun 03, 2020 at 20:04:13 from 216.241.205.160

Good to "see" you Wesley! I know only about 20 people use this blog anymore but It's become a ritual for me.

From Wesley Hunt on Wed, Jun 03, 2020 at 20:52:18 from 174.236.136.51

Eugene- Thanks for the note.

Rob- Yes sir...was it the Malvern or ďcounty lineĒ reference that gave it away? Iím back in the Natural State to follow in your footsteps, as Iíll be teaching U.S. and Arkansas History in Little Rock this fall. Many years ago you ruined me with all those posts about your AP History classes and cross-country teams. Never stopped thinking about that.... As for Senator Cotton, are you suggesting something other than voting against him?:). Finally, with respect to FRB, I can date many of my lower moments to the time I stopped posting. Ritual and discipline are meaningful, Mr. Murphy. Plus, youíre talking to a guy who doesnít understand Strava and runs in a Timex (the classic IronMan, of course).

Hope you and the family are staying safe and healthy during these unsettling times.

From Jason D on Wed, Jun 03, 2020 at 21:35:19 from 73.144.88.57

This made my day, Wesley. Nice to see your name pop up. I hope you and your family are well.

The weather comment was sarcasm right?

Of course, I can't wait to hear more about your career change etc.

From Wesley Hunt on Mon, Jun 08, 2020 at 16:58:25 from 174.236.138.173

6 miles at JA Fair High School in Southwest LR while waiting on my Subaru to get diagnosed...it's having transmission issues. I actually ran Miles 3-5 at sub-7:30 pace, and it felt pretty good.

4 miles this morning on our trails, the last with the kids before tennis. Camping at Lake DeGray State Park as I write this...feeling a bit nostalgic because we came to this same "sandy beach" throughout my early childhood, several lifetimes ago.
