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

had to double take for a second when i saw your name under recent entries. good to see you back Wesley!

From Rob Murphy on Wed, Jun 03, 2020 at 20:03:57 from 216.241.205.160

You're back in Arkansas?

Try to do something about Tom Cotton ok?

From Rob Murphy on Wed, Jun 03, 2020 at 20:04:13 from 216.241.205.160

Good to "see" you Wesley! I know only about 20 people use this blog anymore but It's become a ritual for me.

From Wesley Hunt on Wed, Jun 03, 2020 at 20:52:18 from 174.236.136.51

Eugene- Thanks for the note.

Rob- Yes sir...was it the Malvern or ďcounty lineĒ reference that gave it away? Iím back in the Natural State to follow in your footsteps, as Iíll be teaching U.S. and Arkansas History in Little Rock this fall. Many years ago you ruined me with all those posts about your AP History classes and cross-country teams. Never stopped thinking about that.... As for Senator Cotton, are you suggesting something other than voting against him?:). Finally, with respect to FRB, I can date many of my lower moments to the time I stopped posting. Ritual and discipline are meaningful, Mr. Murphy. Plus, youíre talking to a guy who doesnít understand Strava and runs in a Timex (the classic IronMan, of course).

Hope you and the family are staying safe and healthy during these unsettling times.

From Jason D on Wed, Jun 03, 2020 at 21:35:19 from 73.144.88.57

This made my day, Wesley. Nice to see your name pop up. I hope you and your family are well.

I held it together with no walking in the hills and enjoyed the 2 hours of solitude, as I did not encounter a soul.

My lot is .14 acre. Trying to imagine an "on our land" post.

From Wesley Hunt on Thu, Jul 16, 2020 at 09:24:06 from 174.236.141.1

Yeah, weíve actually named many of the trails on the 200 acres, much of which is hardwood forest, and Iíve marked off a 1.5 mile loop for kids as well. I typically run roughly the boundary line trails followed by a couple of my favorite shadier ones closer to the house and tree house.

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.

Praying for the best for your family and teaching this upcoming semester and year.

Great name for a road :-) I love gravel roads for running and cycling.

We just moved and it's fairly suburban area (South Eastern Michigan), but it gets rural really quickly. We have a dirt road about a mile from us, It's amazing that these roads still exist (and I grew up in a very rural area in New England).

6.5 miles along the Arkansas River Trail heading west from Two River Bridge parking lot. I explored some grass trails that lead back to the river and are rarely used, but, unfortunately, several of them were way overgrown unfortunately. Nevertheless, I enjoyed the run after a long first day in the classroom.

6.5 miles on Arkansas River Trail west from Two Rivers Bridge. Tired and low on energy, today was even slower than normal. I made a big loop, mostly on paved trail as some grass.

7 Miles, including half-mile walk. 

Observing our HS XC coach and trying to learn the sport. Thoughts from anyone on best book in the topic? And I specifically mean XC and book...not a coaching website or a bestseller by a basketball coach.

6.75 miles on the Pinnacle Mt. Base Trail, the Ouachita National Recreation Trail ("OT"), and AR Hwy. 300. This was a nice route with a mix of rocky trails, soft trail, and pavement on a cloudy afternoon. There's an abandoned (to motorized vehicles) one-lane truss bridge that's part of the OT that is downright dystopian...and just really beautiful. It's on the list of Historic Bridges of the United States, so says Wikipedia. All my Arkansas trail books just call it the old truss bridge.

Extreme northwest corner of the state (even north of Memphis)...actually near New Madrid fault, site of early 19th century earthquake that was said to reverse the flow of the Mississippi River! Anyway, after a few miles into Missouri, you cross Mississippi River into Illinois toward Chicago, etc.

31 miles in 4:46:32 (9:15) on the driveway-north ridge one-mile loop, changing directions every five miles. It was 37 degrees with a wind chill closer to 30, and there was a steady to hard rain for most of the run.

Despite the conditions, I felt good for much of the run, logging sub-9 min miles for Miles 1-13, sub-10 min miles for Miles 14-22, sub-11 min miles for Miles 23-28 (with the exception of Mile 26, which appears to have been an aberration), and I finished strong with sub-9:30 miles for Miles 29-31. In fact, I had planned to run only 30, but there was still light left in the day:)

As for fuel, I had one pedialyte (50 calories, lots of sodium) mixed in a 20oz water bottle at Mile 10 and 22, as well as five crackers and a few more ounces of water at Mile 18. I took one bio break in our cabin, which was the only time I stopped watch (probably about 90 seconds).
