I learned a lot about myself while thinking a lot about my family and priorities. Physically, I felt pretty damn good. In fact, about&nbsp;the only thing that didn&#39;t affect me was the 90 degree heat and humidity. I&#39;m a&nbsp;kid from southern Arkansas and&nbsp;thrive in those conditions.</p> <p>I finished in 16:53:55, the eighth fastest time in the AT100&#39;s 27-year life. I&nbsp;was a little over an hour off my 2015 course record, but I&#39;m content with my effort. I ran an honest race and became the first person to finish first overall in four AT100s.</p> <p>No crew or pacer this year, but lots of loved ones, including my beautiful kids, were there in spirit.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Sat, 07 Oct 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Oct 05, 2017 http://wesley.fastrunningblog.com/blog-10-05-2017.html <p>7 Miles in 56 mins on TM.</p> <p>10 Total Miles including 3 Miles walking/commuting.</p> Thu, 05 Oct 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Oct 03, 2017 http://wesley.fastrunningblog.com/blog-10-03-2017.html <p>8 Miles in 64 mins on TM;</p> <p>9 Total Miles including one-mile commute.&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Tue, 03 Oct 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Oct 02, 2017 http://wesley.fastrunningblog.com/blog-10-02-2017.html <p>10 Miles in 80 mins on TM.</p> <p>11 Total Miles including one-mile commute.</p> Mon, 02 Oct 2017 06:00:00 Sun, Oct 01, 2017 http://wesley.fastrunningblog.com/blog-10-01-2017.html <p>6 Miles, including 8X200m striders, at Scott Field track on a fantastic morning.</p> <p>2 Miles at park with Max and Sophia after church.</p> <p>10 Total Miles including the walk to and from church.</p> Sun, 01 Oct 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Sep 30, 2017 http://wesley.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-30-2017.html <p>2 Miles walking.</p> Sat, 30 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Sep 29, 2017 http://wesley.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-29-2017.html <p>10 Miles in 77 mins, including 4 striders,&nbsp;followed by 6 Miles at 2.0 incline on TM.</p> <p>18 Total Miles including 2 Miles walking.</p> Fri, 29 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Sep 28, 2017 http://wesley.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-28-2017.html <p>6 Miles in 45 mins followed by 2 Miles&nbsp;at 2.0 incline on TM.</p> <p>10 Total Miles including 2 Miles walking/commuting.</p> Thu, 28 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Sep 27, 2017 http://wesley.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-27-2017.html <p>6 Miles in 42 mins on TM.</p> <p>8 Total Miles including 2 Miles walking/commuting.</p> Wed, 27 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Sep 26, 2017 http://wesley.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-26-2017.html <p>8 Miles in an hour on TM.</p> <p>10 Total Miles including 2 Miles commuting/walking.</p> Tue, 26 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Mon, Sep 25, 2017 http://wesley.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-25-2017.html <p>12 Miles in 95 mins, including 4 striders,&nbsp;and 8 Miles walking at 2.0 incline on TM.</p> <p>24 Total Miles including 4 Miles waking/commuting.</p> Mon, 25 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Sun, Sep 24, 2017 http://wesley.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-24-2017.html <p>9 Miles in 1:08 on a hot day in Little Rock.</p> <p>Started from Alsopp Park and ran a half-mile uphill along the trails to Hillcrest before heading over to Scott Field track; 4X800m Repeats at sun-6:00 pace but smooth.</p> <p>10 Total Miles including one-Mike walk with Evan at park.</p> Sun, 24 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Sat, Sep 23, 2017 http://wesley.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-23-2017.html <p>2 Miles walking.</p> Sat, 23 Sep 2017 06:00:00 Fri, Sep 22, 2017 http://wesley.fastrunningblog.com/blog-09-22-2017.html <p>17.5 Miles in 2:32 on a hot and humid day in the Ouachita National Forest.</p> <p>Today&#39;s run included the first 16.4 Miles of the Arkansas Traveller 100, 7.8 Miles of which is rocky&nbsp;single track along the historic Ouachita Trail.
