No training with my running partner this morning as he is doing a 5k this evening. Not a huge problem since I was needing to do a short speed & endurance test run this morning. We’ll see how it affects the rest of the training plan. Unfortunately, these sorts of runs end up resulting in me focusing only on the run and not much else. Since I got up at the normal training run time I should have some extra non-running quiet time to morning. #HWI #GRMarathon #Run4Water

There is a lot of planning and work involved with putting in a quality well that will sustain a village for years to come, and through long dry seasons. When you support a well through Hope Water you can know that your dollars are impacting generations. #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun Make a global, and generational, impact by giving to clean water: https://timn.me/2Kx7NEr With the River Bank Run now being postponed to the fall I’m not sure what my running will look like. I haven’t stopped my 25K training plan, but there won’t be a race to finish out the training. I’m considering a Virtual Race, but it will be more money spent. We’ll see what this year brings for running.
Today my training run was kicked up a notch with some interval speed work. It definitely tested how recovered I am from the marathon. It’s been awhile since I have done any high intensity runs of substantial length. These sorts of runs do make it hard to spend a lot of time focusing on prayer unfortunately. It did however bring to mind #WhyIRun during some of the intense intervals and help to keep me pushing on. #HWI #Run4Water Donate to Clean Water – https://timn.me/2t9D4ne
Over 1,200 children die each year in Sierra Leone related to lack of clean water. The remaining $255 towards my goal will save 19 more children. Will you join me to impact the children of Africa? https://timn.me/2Kx7NEr #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun #GRMarathon Also on: MastodonMastodon

My training plan slowed my pace down this week. I suspect since my last Thursday evaluation run involved some pretty icy sidewalks that it affected the outcome of my training plan. I felt really good even after taking this past Saturday off. It’s definitely been harder staying with it since I’m pretty disconnected from my Hope Water Team these days. I’m glad I got out there this morning to knock out some miles for clean water. #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun
I am more than willing to endure some discomfort, and tough days, if it means making water available to a village in Africa. Something that can mean the difference between life and death. #HWI #KCC #Run4Water #WhyIRun #GRHalfMarathon #RiverBankRun
