Had a fun time running with my son at the Kids #GRMarathon
I had the benefit of getting my run in during the coolest part of the day. The real troupers are the rest of the team that will be tackling their 5k this evening. #HWI #KCC #Run4Water #WhyIRun #GRHalfMarathon #RiverBankRun #HottestDay5k
A little windy this morning but it made for a nice cool run. I didn’t feel like I slept very well so it was hard to get going this morning.

I’m excited to see what He has in store. #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun #GRGus Donate to Clean Water – https://timn.me/2t9D4ne
This past week I was reading a YouVersion devotional written by a marathon runner. The author talked about the point during the marathon when we are faced with the question “why am I doing this?”. This can also happen during those tough training days. #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun #GRGus Today was a good day, but on a long run the question of why can still pop up. Why did I wake up a 5am on a Saturday to run 14 miles? The reason for me is 3-fold. First is the mission to continue sharing the need for clean water. Second is do my best to stay active and healthy. The third reason is to be an example to my kids, and by getting up early I’m…
