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.

AM:  5 Miles with my brother, Luke, on a great morning on the trails at Lake Catherine State Park.  Nice and easy running up and back down the mountain; great conversation.

PM:  10 Barefoot Miles in 1:07:40 (6:46 pace), including 6X800m Repeats around the infield of the Scott Field (Hall High School) track; great workout, 90 degrees, but lower humidity.  Grass a little wet and mushy in places, but I managed 2:45, 2:40, 2:42, 2.38, 2:42, and 2.38, respectively, for the 800m repeats.

Total:  15 Miles.  Fun training day.

AM:  5 Easy Miles on TM.

PM:  9 Miles in 1:07, including 8X200m striders.  

Forgot to mention my crack analysis of last night's MNF double header on ESPN...the Ravens are still good; the Bengals are still helpless; the Raiders and Chargers are still mediocre.

Total:  14 Miles.

12 Miles in 1:29:00 on a misty, mid-day run along Highway 171, then up Highway 290 to Camp Tanako, the Methodist Church Camp that I attended every summer in junior high and high school.  My grandfather and grandmother (who passed last week) were Camp Directors half a century ago when trying to save money for their first (and current) home in Malvern, Arkansas.  Sentimental running...

Ran final 2 Miles in under 13 minutes.
