Sporting the Slip n Slide 5K shirt on my training run this morning. It was a hot one at 5am, I can’t imagine doing my run later today. Running in the heat took me back to our short 3 mile run in Freetown #SierraLeone and remembering #WhyIRun for those in need. I was blessed to have 2 fresh bottles of water available to me while I ran. That is a luxury not found by many in Sierra Leone. #HWI #HessLakeRun #GRMarathon #Run4Water

It was a tough go of it this morning tackling the ice mounds left behind by the snow plows. Winter running is not the time to be working on speed that is for sure. Many times I had to take to running on the snow covered grassy areas in order not to trip and fall. I should stress here the importance of wearing proper footwear when running in the winter, and that means wearing some sort of cleats. There would have been no way I would have escaped some sort of injury if it hadn’t been for my cleats. #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun #GRGus Help Provide Clean Water: https://timn.me/2Kx7NEr
Today was pretty easy-going as we packed up at the hotel in Makeni to head to Waterloo & Freetown, making the first step towards the trek home. We had a nice long ride to Waterloo where we were going to see some of the final drilling stages of a new well. The well was being put in right near a school in a very poor area of Waterloo. Since it was near a school, and want looked like a community “park” there were a lot of kids around. I think there were a lot of people in general because of watching the well drilling. We’re there for about 3.5 hours before we started to see some water flowing from the well. They eventually got the…
It’s been nice to shed some layers as the weather has begun to warm up. I almost feel lighter on my feet just by dropping a layer or two. Besides the great weather it was another excellent time spent listening to the worship workout music and having some one-on-one time with the Lord. # HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun #RiverBankRun
Today was a big fight against the new(used) treadmill. I guess it was hill training this morning. I have to figure out this new treadmill so that I can actually use it in line with my training schedule. I felt slow and frustrated this morning. Blah. Tim just finished a Runtastic treadmill training of 3.2 mi in 40m 15s
I really don’t have much to say about this mornings’ run. I had a solid pace and stayed around my target heart rate. It was a pretty crisp morning but by the half way point I was warned up & trucking along nicely. #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun #RiverBankRun
Back at it again this morning. It was an intense short training test run. I was hoping to see a #5K #PR but that may have to wait until Saturday when I do the #HotCiderHustle 5K. I had just ran the night before so my body hadn’t really had a ton of recovery time. I’ll be looking forward to representing #HWI at the Hot Cider Hustle. It sounds like there will be a few of us out there. I always love having the opportunity to share to share about the mission when I where my Hope Water blue.
