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

8 Miles in 55:56 on a stretch of Salem Road in Saline County; I was "running out" a major traffic jam (caused by high-speed chase!) for folks trying to get back into Little Rock.

I considered briefly whether the fine citizens of this part of rural Arkansas actually thought I was the fugitive...

8 Miles of work; hot and tired but glad to have a spouse, in-laws, and kids that understand running is necessary for my sanity, even on 3-4 hours of sleep.

If I hit 60 this week, it will be a moral victory.

3 Miles around the paved trail at the neighborhood park while my kids chased me on their bikes.

Positive is that I ran every day this week...negative is the number: 52.
