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

13-mile out-and-back on FSR 132 in the Ouachita National Forest on a mild day in the lower 90s with the heat index exactly 100. Only 20 oz of water but no issues other than feeling my age (or more likely my training from 2013 through 2017). I held it together with no walking in the hills and enjoyed the 2 hours of solitude, as I did not encounter a soul.

7 miles on our land, including two, two-kid heats of 1.5 miles. The first included my twelve- and ten-year old (Max and Sophia), and the second included my six- and two-year old (Evan and Maya). Maya was a late entry because my Mom had to go talk to the guy building our new gate...she toughed it out because the heat index was only 108 today.
