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.

Empire, Mighigan, 41 degrees, intermittent hail.  

One of the most beautiful places I have ever seen.  

The inaugural Sleeping Bear Marathon featured an out-and-back course along the scenic drive overlooking Lake Michigan and the Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes, which I will be climbing this afternoon with my fiance, Diana, who has been an amazing tour guide all weekend.  

I ran with the pace cyclist from start to finish, and we very much enjoyed ourselves.  My time of 2:45:42 bests my previous PR (March 2012 LR Marathon) by over 6 minutes.  Of course, it being the inaugural race, I now hold the course record (at least for a year)!

As I lay in the Empire B&B eating chex mix and drinking a Leinenkugel's Sunset Wheat, I am relaxed and perfectly content.

A good morning, and a great afternoon to come.

8 Miles at the Magnet Cove High School Track with my Dad, Mark, who ran three miles with me at 7:00/mile; I ran two additional miles at 7:00/mile before cooling down with my Dad.

Foggy and humid morning, but good running.
