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

19 miles on a lovely afternoon. So, I ran from my parents' front door, down the driveway, and along Hwy. 171 into Lake Catherine State Park. I hit the Falls Branch Trail for the 2ish mile loop past the falls, and then returned along 171. It was exactly 19 miles, and although I carried a gel and a waffle thing, I ended up just drinking 20oz of water.

20 Total Miles, including one-mile walk.
