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.

Had a blast running the Black Canyon Ultras 100K on a hot day near 90 degrees just north of Phoenix.

I ran a smart controlled race, climbing from 14th place at the Mile 38 Aid Station to finish 9th overall in 10:04 amongst a very competive field that included well-known marathoners Sage Canaday (1st) and Chris Mocko (3rd), as well as a slew of top ultra runners like Hal Koerner, Ben Stern, and Ryan Kaiser.

Congrats to Sage and Charlie Ware (2nd) for earning those coveted "Golden Tickets" to Western States. Sage also crushed the course record by nearly an hour, finishing in 7:52 on a course that is almost entirely single track with multiple river crossings!  For those that are interested, Sage missed qualifying for today's Olympic Marsthon Trials by 12 seconds when he finished 18th overall in last year's Boston Marathon.

I cannot say enough about my wonderful crew chief and beautiful wife, Diana.  She is my good luck charm / secret weapon in races, and she's becoming a pro at crewing ultras as well. We're heading up to the Grand Canyon for a couple of days tomorrow, with lots of eating and even a mule ride on the itinerary.

Wesley
