Another one of those mornings that took some extra effort to get it of bed and get out the door. I really had to fight with myself to not just go back to bed. Always feel even better when I finish a run knowing that I overcame the desire to just stay in bed. It becomes an easier decision when you think about giving up a little extra sleep for the cause of bringing people clean water. #HWI #HessLakeRun #GRMarathon #Run4Water

So as not to disappoint my fellow running mates, I got out there and got my Monday training run done complete with a frozen beard. Things were pretty good so long as I didn’t have to run into the wind. I picked my route so I could minimize running into the wind. I was pleasantly surprised by my overall average pace after finishing. I think Wednesday might be the most interesting final training run, we’ll see. #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun #GRGus
Finally getting this posted. It was a busy, but fun, family day. I needed to get my run done early but I still finished with some daylight. I am committed to my training but I’m always trying my best to not let it negatively impact my family. I’ll sacrifice a late night, or some sleep, before I’ll sacrifice family time. #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun #RiverBankRun
After the slow start this week I wasn’t sure how an interval run would go. #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun #RiverBankRun
In an effort to actually take into consideration the things I read about running, and specifically training, I tried to slow things down today. I was still a bit faster than the training plan called for today but then it also felt like I was barely exerting myself, which is also kind of the point with slowing down and actually training my body and not just pounding on it. An additional benefit of slowing things down are being able focus and my one-on-one time with God. It allows me to actually listen to the words of the music that is playing, and listen to God’s prompting. Today was less about bring up my, or others, needs but about simply being thankful for where I am…
Had a fun evening playing some Kemet with the guys. Took a long time to get through since most of us have not played enough to get a good strategy down.
