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

Around 6 Miles in around 42 minutes on a bicycle path near our villa. Hot! Heading back to Arkansas tomorrow morning after a great week that should recharge the batteries.

8 Miles in 57 minutes on a crisp Sunday morning.

Felt good, but also noted the impact of a couple restless nights.

5 Easy Miles past Central High and back on a lazy recovery day after a solid Week 1 of training.  I exceeded my 80-mile target, started adjusting my diet, and rededicated myself to Boston and accomplishing my goals there.

The cold weather suits my running.

6 Easy Miles on a cold morning on Hwy. 171 near my parents' home outside of Malvern, Arkansas.  during much of this run, I carried an eight pound yorkie eraring a red and white striped sweater.  this was harder than I expected...

The yorkie, who happens to belong to me, has no business jogging on Hwy. 171.

5 Easy Miles on a recovery day in dowwntown LR.

Caught an early showing of Silver Linings' Playbook this morning.  Great writing and maybe even better acting...I highly reccomend.

Heading to my Mon's Dad's 90th birthday party later this afternoon. Nice to share genes with a man that age who still drives, hunts, hikes, and goes dancing once a week. 

Happy Birthday, Granddaddy (I don't thinks he's ever been on the internet).
