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.

Registered Friday afternoon for my seventh Little Rock Marathon, which got started at 7:00 am this morning in downtown Little Rock. The course has changed a bit over the years, but it stil hits a lot of the City’s major landmarks, including the Broadway Bridge over the Arkansas River and the USS Razorback, Clinton Presidential  Library, Heifer International Headquarters, the Governor’s Mansion, Central High School, the State Capitol, ATA International Headquarters, Dillard’s Headquarters, finishing back downtown in the River Market.

I ran comfortably in fifth place most of the day, managed the cold showers midrace, and ultimately finished 7th in 2:47:45 (again, in my seventh LR Marathon!!!!!!!).

I’m pleased with the 6:24 pace and not too banged up, so I should be able to stay on schedule with my second training block as I work toward the Massanutten Trails 100 in mid-May.

Enjoyed myself out there today...I needed that.

Wesley

10 Miles in justviver 73 mins on a nice afternoon in Little Rock.

Starting from Jefferson Elementary where my kids were playing in a chess tournament, I ran through Camack Village down to the River Trail, crossed over the Big Dam Bridge into North Little Rock, and turned around at Burns Park Soccer Complex.

Lots of hills and a little fatigued, but still a pleasant afternoon run.

11 Total Miles including one-mile walk on my parents’ trails.
