Despite another overwhelming desire to go back to bed I got my run done. #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun #RiverBankRun
It was good that I had a week of blistering cold Minnesota running which pretty much prepared me for the colder weather we’ve had this week. This morning was a shorter interval run, but the 20 minute high intensity interval pretty much set me up to only focus on the run, and the upcoming Groundhog Day Marathon. I’m trying to just trust my training is preparing me like it should but the longest I’ve ran since the last marathon was 18 miles, which is 8.2 miles short.

I think about them often and pray that the wells will continue to increase in number and make huge impacts for generations to come. #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun #RiverBankRun Make an impact on the world, give to wells in Africa: https://timn.me/2Kx7NEr
