A bit of a wet morning, but not a downpour, so it kept things a little cooler. It was a good thing it was only just shy of 6 miles, as I needed to be able to make it home to get to the bathroom. That last mile was a bit uncomfortable. I was glad to have still gotten up early, even though it was a holiday, to get my run done and enjoy the rest of the day. #HWI #GRMarathon #Run4Water

Trying to go through even an “easy” run when the humidity is high is a challenge. When I get done I feel like I’ve taken the grossest shower anyone could ever take. #HWI #KCC #Run4Water #WhyIRun #GRHalfMarathon #RiverBankRun
Today’s training run was an intense interval run that pretty much required my complete focus. I only had 30 seconds to “recover” between my 6 minute long 8 minutes/mile pace intervals, and there were 8 of those. I had quite a few misses, and I was short on my final distance by about .02 miles, but overall I still knocked it out with a good time. #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun #RiverBankRun
It’s a strange thing comparing your hot midday run to your cool early morning. I would have thought that I was going to knock my pace out of the park this morning but alas no. I have to believe that my lack of rest last night was a major contributor. The interesting thing was seeing my heart rate drop to the low to mid 130s during miles 5 & 6. I can only attribute that to my shower pace during those miles while I was pretty focused on prayer for family, friends, and those needing water in Sierra Leone, like the village of #Ronkorhun. I’m hoping to find those one again that are willing to partner with me to bring clean water to Africa as…
Had to bring things back inside this morning. I did have to think twice about it given that at the moment I was getting ready it wasn’t actually raining. Given the entire morning called for rain I opted not to get caught in it this time. Hope I can be back outside tomorrow. https://www.endomondo.com/users/7182108/workouts/908622333
Clean water has a huge effect on a village. When clean water is readily available it means students can go to school that would have otherwise had to spend their days collecting water. An education opens up so many doors for children and gives them hope for a brighter future. #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun #GRGus Make An Impact, Give to Clean Water: https://timn.me/2Kx7NEr
For the sake of my own reference, and potentially to help others through the process, I’m documenting and sharing here the steps I took to upgrade my #Mastodon instance, that I host with a #DigitalOcean Droplet, from version 3.5.3 to version 4.0.2.
