Still need some partners to help me bring clean water to another 56 people, $375, before I run the #GRMarathon in October. Donate Today: https://timn.me/2Kx7NEr #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun When the dry season hits it can be very hard on people, especially when their only source of water is a small stream, pond, or small hole dug in the ground. What is even worse is the many hand dug wells that just dry up because they don’t go down far enough. When Hope Water helps to put a well in you can be sure it’s a well that won’t dry up during the dry season. When I visited a village in e Sierra Leone, a Peace Corps worker there shared with our team that the well…
As I ran this morning I couldn’t help but think about the impact that #COVID19 is having on our world and not just with those infected, having died, or those secluding themselves bin protection. There is the global economic impact that I fear will also impact giving to those that have been in need. When there is a huge need for support of those that have lost there jobs right around you it seems challenging to be asking for money to send overseas for wells. The world challenges of poverty and access to clean water didn’t go away when the virus hit, those needs are still very much there and now more needs have been added on top. #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun
It’s tough doing long training runs all by yourself, and 15 miles is no joke. I pretty much got my peak pace at around 10 miles. The final 5 miles was quite a struggle at times, and my lap pace times reflected it. It’s hard to imagine that I’m going to need to go another 11.2 miles beyond what I ran today come marathon day. This year has felt way more off than last year. I got it done nonetheless. #HWI #GRMarathon #Run4Water
For many even the road to a dirty water source is a treacherous one. A well placed well brings both clean water, and safety, to a village in Africa. I’m still looking for some additional partners to commit to the final $255 of my goal. Will you be that partner? https://timn.me/2Kx7NEr #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun #GRMarathon In the village of Ronkorhun they must travel over a rickety bridge, during the rainy season when the creek is flowing, to get to a hole in the ground where they collect their water. Can you imagine risking your safety to get water that can make you sick? That’s the situation many of those in Afeica are in. This morning was another speed work morning. On top of that I…
It wasn’t pretty, but I got my run in and finished. I’m about $900 short on my fundraiser right now so any support would be huge. Join with me to bring clean water to Africa. #HWI #KCC #Run4Water #WhyIRun #GRHalfMarathon #RiverBankRun
It was hard to get up this morning but after getting out the door, and getting some time in, I finished my run and actually felt good both physically and mentally.
