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.

Boston Strong. 

117th running of the Boston Marthon. I started fast, hitting the 5K mark at 18:36 and holding strong through the halfway point in 1:23:08. A couple of side stitches, first on the left, then right, brought me back down to Earth and reminded me that my primary goal was breaking three hours. I cruised at about 7:00/mile until Mile 18, where we hit the Newton hills, the most notorious of which is Heartbreak Hill, which crests at the Mile 21 Marker. The wind really kicked up as we turned onto Commonwealth toward Boston, and I wisely held back on the downhills because I could feel hamstring cramps creeping in. I fought hard the last few miles, finally kicking at the Mile 26 Marker to finish in 2:59:11.

7 Easy Miles on a beautiful Saturday morning exploring my new neighborhood.  Just under three miles to access Little Rock River Trail via Overlook from my new abode.
