Had a great extended weekend with the family. Loved having the extra day and enjoyed many fun activities. It started Friday night with my wife and I renting and watching The Shack. Saturday was a busy day starting off with the HWI group run followed by getting supplies and materials to build a deck out back. On Sunday we enjoyed a great Sunday message as a campfire with the family, mother in-law, and father in-law. Monday we had a great morning at the Jenison Memorial Day Parade with the kids. Mom (i.e. Vanessa) was in the parade for the Saturday Slip & Slide so Dad (i.e. me) was in charge of getting the kids a good spot for candy collection. 😉 We wrapped up the rest of the day working on building a new floating deck next to the garage out back, followed by dinner at the newly remodeled Pizza Ranch in Hudsonville. Sad to see the weekend come to and end but have to get back to the routine, at least until summer hits.

I wanted to make sure I hit my target based on how my training went. I decided before the race even started that I was going to stick with the pacers. That plan paid off. Even though my target pace was supposed to be 8:42 min/mi my choices for pacers was 8:30 or 9:00 and…
Just a short training run this morning, an easy 5K. There was a fresh blanket of snow for the run this morning. It was a nice crisp morning for running. #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun #GRGus Give A Christmas Gift of Clean Water: https://timn.me/2Kx7NEr
It was nice to sleep in a little before doing the short run, especially given my #Endomondo training plan has me on a 5 run per week schedule. The only problem with these short runs is that I get a little too caught up in my speed. I love having the worship workout music pumping me up to full speed. It was pretty warm out already at 5am. #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun #GRMarathon

Getting down to the end of the Thursday morning training runs, soon we’ll be tapering off as the #GRMarathon is only a few more weeks away. This morning we got so wrapped up in conversation that it seemed like the run was done before we knew it. That is one of the joys of running…
Great to be out with the #HWI group running again. Had some great conversations. Great to see all the new faces this year and some visitors as well. #GRMarathon #Run4Water
