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.

Really busy day, with work and my brother's family in town, and I didn't have an opportunity to run until past 6 pm (a rarity for me). I was scheduled for some tempo work today, and I gave it my best shot on low energy.

From my parents, I ran 8 Miles out and back along Hwy. 171. Managed 6:20 or so for Miles 2-4 (2 slightly uphill and 3-4 slightly down) and 6:30 for the final 2 Miles preceding the half-mile cool-down up the driveway. Extremely humid with lots of annoying horseflies harassing me along the way.

Only 9 Total Miles today but a pretty good late afternoon effort to salvage the day.

13 Miles on a hot and humid afternoon. I ran the roughly 9 Miles in 68 mins from my parents' home to the trailhead at Lake Catherine State Park, where I met my brother for 4 Miles of technical trail and a bit of scrambling up a small waterfall.

This was a moderately tough and enjoyable run that included a little bit of everything.
