Nearing the end of the Thursday training runs, one more next week before the big #GRMarathon day. These short training runs go by quick that is for sure. The #HWI team still has some more to go on the fundraising. There is still a match going on so every dollar someone gives is really two. #Run4Water #WhyIRun Donate to Water – https://timn.me/2t9D4ne
Most children in Sierra Leone don’t get to be “just kids” like kids can in America. Many children are the ones responsible for gathering the water that their entire family needs for the day. This results in either no education, or very little. Bringing more clean water to Africa means a better future for the children. #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun Help Bring Clean Water to Africa: https://timn.me/2Kx7NEr I almost got 9 miles in, which is almost 3 miles beyond the farthest distance I’ve run since finishing the #GRMarathon in October. It definitely felt harder on the last half than the 1st half. I’m glad I was able to get through it without getting let cramps again.
Decided to get my #5K in even though the Saturday Slip n Slide one was canceled. #HWI #Run4Water #HessLakeRun #GRMarathon
It’s a strange thing comparing your hot midday run to your cool early morning. I would have thought that I was going to knock my pace out of the park this morning but alas no. I have to believe that my lack of rest last night was a major contributor. The interesting thing was seeing my heart rate drop to the low to mid 130s during miles 5 & 6. I can only attribute that to my shower pace during those miles while I was pretty focused on prayer for family, friends, and those needing water in Sierra Leone, like the village of #Ronkorhun. I’m hoping to find those one again that are willing to partner with me to bring clean water to Africa as…
Once the winter weather season hits I always have to remember that I will end up slowing down. It’s a good time to focus on just enjoying the run. Some may thinks it’s pretty crazy to consider a winter run as something to be enjoyed. If you dress right you can easily enjoy a winter run. #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun #GRGus Give To Clean Water: https://timn.me/2Kx7NEr
When visited Sierra Leone I was able to experience a village celebration of a new well. The joy and excitement that I saw made every mile I ran through #HWI worth every challenge, or pain, or struggle. #Run4Water #WhyIRun #GRMarathon Donate to Clean Water: https://timn.me/2Kx7NEr
