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

9 Miles, including 8X400m repeats, on a descent morning at Scott Field; easy progression through first 4 repeats, hitting 90 secs for fourth; abdomen felt okay so I ran final 4 repeats at roughly 5K pace: 85, 84, 81, and 78.

8 Miles on a warm and humid morning in Little Rock. Jogged over to Firecracker Fast 5K course and ran it slowly with the course to myself.  The 40th running of this historic local race takes place later this morning.  I look forward to running it again - just not today - with my kids as they grow older.

14 Miles in 1:51 in a refreshing rain shower that quickly turned into a frightening thunderstorm.  I ran a hilly out-and-back through Camack Village down Overlook where I picked up the River Trail heading west. After crossing Two Rivers Bridge, I continued west for about a mile until the trail was blocked by several trees that fell during yesterday's storms.

Good run, but a little scary during the latter half. My abdomen is a little sore too...nothing to write home about though.

8 Miles on a hot afternoon in Troy, including a stopover at Kroger to replenish the milk supply for my youngest son and several of my nephews, and at the nearby Polish Market for fresh pierogis to accompany the kielbasa we're having for dinner.

10 Miles including the brisk walk home from the Polish Market.

11 Miles, high noon, Magnet Cove High School Track; 91 degrees, 100 heat index, 10 UV index.

Managed 4X800 "cruise" intervals at LTP, but this was pretty tough running in direct sunlight for nearly 90 minutes.
