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

24 miles in 3:46 (2,079ft total ascent) on rolling gravel roads adjacent to my parents' land. I love running gravel, but I loathe carrying stuff, so I ended up losing 8+ pounds during this run.

After some farm chores and a long shower, I feel pretty descent...good effort with only two bottles of water and one package of scratch chews.

5 miles walking and jogging around XC meet this morning, lunch with Max after, and then 11 miles in 1:24:45, with miles 3-10 at 7:16/mile. It wasn't a bad effort, but my goal was closer to marathon pace (6:40). Just didn't have any energy after less than 6 hours sleep and a long week...not completely locked in mentally either.

5 miles easy and relaxed running (10:25) on Pinnacle mtb trails from lower trailhead; pretty technical and looked for - and found - about 800ft of ascent.  Trying to get my legs back under me, and after my fourth day of running in a row, I'm feeling a little drained.
