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

32+ miles pacing my friend and OG trail runner, Stan, to a 5th place finish in the Arkansas Traveller 100. I'd say sub-21 hours is pretty salty for a 59 year old.

35 Total, including a couple more to encourage a friend leaving the aid station at which I was volunteering before pacing. She was equally awesome, finishing her first 100 miler.

Ran 1.5 miles to Ouachita National Recreation Trail (OT) spur trail near my house, then west on the OT until my watch hit 90 mins (8.1), turning around and making my way back the same way. This rocky, technical trail is a treasure, and it was great to have the forest to myself this morning, but I continue to struggle with not insignificant tightness/pain throughout my midsection.

16.3 in 3 hours; 19 Total with 2+ miles walking later.

22.2 miles of "urban" running in 3.5 hours in NLR while Max was in referee training. It pretty well despite conditions (lots of concrete sidewalks and hard rain during second half of run), and I managed 7:23 and 6:57 for miles 10 and 11, but only 7:51 and 7:36 for miles 20 and 2…in a driving rain with stiff legs! The planned workout was 90 mins easy, 15 mins close to [trail] marathon pace, then repeat.

23 Total with a little walking.

9.5 easy miles, starting in a light rain, which felt great...

The rain moved on after a mile or so, but the clouds stayed, and it was very pleasant.
