Got some interval training in on this freshly fallen snow this morning.

Today wasn’t my 1st race but it was the first big race with a lot of excitement and energy. I had the pleasure of running with a HWI Team Daybreak member, Scott Woody. We finished in excellent time given it was a first 10k race for both of us. I know that today was nothing compared to the experience of the Grand Rapids marathon with the full Daybreak crew. I had such an awesome time, and the feeling of accomplishment and energy as we came into the finish was unlike anything I’ve experienced before. Many are encouraging me to run the full marathon in the fall, including my wife. I have my reservations simply because I don’t want to over do it. As crazy as…
This week starts a switch up of my Monday and Tuesday running schedule. All I can say is that the Spirit was moving while I listened to the worship music. My run was pretty much kicked onto high gear but the whole time the music was speaking to right where I’m at these days. I know that no matter what today or tomorrow brings I can trust that God will be right there to walk with me through it. #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun #RiverBankRun
After a week without a run this morning was a little bit more challenging than I expected. It was still great to be back out for an early morning run. #HWI #WhyIRun #Run4Water
I felt really out of sync this morning. As others have pointed out from the HWP Team what you eat the day before has an impact on your runs. It wasn’t that I ate bad all day but I didn’t fuel myself enough to prepare for my run this morning. I’m still trying to figure out how to manage my eating. I’ve been on this weight loss path and I’m struggling with figuring out how to eat “normal” now that I’m at a healthy weight. I’ve lost 7 pounds beyond my second goal and I really need to stop losing weight. Still some work to do, that’s for sure. [endomondowp type=’workout’ workout_id=’864426504′ ]
Only $375 to go towards my goal, only about $12 per day until #GRMarathon day on October 20th. Who’s going to help bring clean water to another 56 people in Africa? https://timn.me/2Kx7NEr #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun My running photo for today is a pretty typical sight for me.It can be a rarity that I’m actually have the opportunity to run with the sun out. With the exception of some shorter runs with the Hope Water team on Saturdays, or a race, my time to run is generally early in the morning before the sun rises. Except for the fact that I’m not really a morning person, and would rather stay in bed than get up and run, I like the peacefulness of an early morning run….
It was a kind of interesting morning, weather wise. There was some big thunder before 4am but when I got outside for my morning run there wasn’t much for rain, just some sprinkles and mist off-and-on. The wind came and went as well. The crazy thing once again is to see my pace improve of the course of my run. Instead of what one would normally see, where your pace might get slower over the course of a run, for me my pace got better the longer I ran. It was a good morning for a run all around. Only a few more weeks until the #RiverBank and I think I’m feeling good about my training so far. #HWI #WhyIRun #Run4Water
