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.

The 2017 Arkansas Traveller 100, or "AT100," is one of the most historic 100 milers in North America. With an old school feel, wonderful volunteers and aid stations, and a beautiful and runnable course through the Ouachita National Forrest, it offers a great experience for everyone.

This year's AT100, my fifth consecutive, was challenging psychologically and emotionally. I learned a lot about myself while thinking a lot about my family and priorities. Physically, I felt pretty damn good. In fact, about the only thing that didn't affect me was the 90 degree heat and humidity. I'm a kid from southern Arkansas and thrive in those conditions.

I finished in 16:53:55, the eighth fastest time in the AT100's 27-year life. I was a little over an hour off my 2015 course record, but I'm content with my effort. I ran an honest race and became the first person to finish first overall in four AT100s.

No crew or pacer this year, but lots of loved ones, including my beautiful kids, were there in spirit.
