Due to early morning work my morning run got delayed. However, it was a downpouring rain. At 4:30 this morning anyways. It was a tough run with the heat/humidity and a bad morning at work. I needed the run to clear my head and prepare myself for the day ahead. Despite all the focus on myself on this run I did listen to God’s prompting long enough to lift some others’ needs up to him. #HWI #GRMarathon #Run4Water

It was kind of strange to not have ran since last Thursday, and I always fear any sort of break is going to set my training back. Once I hit the pavement I was moving just as if I hadn’t taken a break. #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun #GRGus Right now the people of Sierra Leone are in the middle of the dry season. This is a tough time for those that don’t have access to clean water. Bring hope to the people of Sierra Leone by giving to clean water. https://timn.me/2Kx7NEr
I managed to challenge my best 5 mile time in the past few weeks as my goal to beat, and I managed to beat it by a more than a minute. #HWI #KCC #Run4Water #WhyIRun #GRHalfMarathon #RiverBankRun
I have still been running but just haven’t taken the time to post about them. I ran 13.1 miles last Saturday and around 7 Miles on Tuesday, I did take a break Monday in order to get some extra sleep after a late night. This morning I had another interval training run this morning that kicked my but, however I still ended with more miles then estimated so I it was not all bad. I had actually started a new training plan since my 15K at the River Bank Run isn’t happen. No sense in building up my distance when there isn’t actually a race to run. #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun
What started out being a pretty easy going run turned out to be much faster than I had expected. I was checking my heart rate the whole time and only once did it rise just a hair past 150. My pace just ended up being what it was based on how I ended up doing with my heart rate. What’s encouraging to me is to see what appears to be my heart health getting better. I feel God has definitely blessed me through my running. Honestly, one of the big helpers with my runs is listening to a worship workout album. There are moments when I am so focused on the song that I forget about the running. I did take some time this morning…
I expected to have a tough time during my training run given my tougher run the previous day, but things turned out really well. It just goes to show you that some days will be tough, yet some will be outstanding. With the new season of #HWI officially starting that also means a new fundraiser page. To kick things off I’ll be maching dollar-for-dollar the first $500 in donations. #Run4Water #WhyIRun #GRMarathon #RiverBankRun Give to clean water: https://timn.me/2020HWI
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
