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

After the rain passed, it was a nice day for running hard and pushing the pace on some technical trails at Petit Jean State Park.

Other than a pretty hard fall and splash in the creek about a half-mile from the finish line, everything went smoothly, and I was proud of the effort.

16 miles in 2:08 on a spring morning that dipped into 30s. First 5 miles on pavement in roughly 7:30/mile, next 5 miles on trails and connecting paths in Pinnacle Mt. State Park at 8:30/mile, and last 6 miles on pavement at just under 8:00/mile. Left knee throbbing on top during latter half of run, which is not ideal, but manageable (I think).

6-mile tempo on a warm, windy day, working hard to hit 37:30 (6:15) on Highway 300, north to Monnie Springs and back. I did this workout because I needed it mentally, not because it was planned. It was effective, and I still have a week to taper.

Great time running the Almira 50 at Village Creek State Park in Northeast Arkansas. This was only the second year of the event, which also offers a trail marathon option, and my time of 7:38:03 established a new course record.

More importantly, I got to spend the weekend with some of my favorite humans! 

Thanks to Race Director, Michael Hirons, and all the great volunteers for putting on a wonderful event.
