I’m not sure what to make of yet another hard interval run. It is training so to a degree it should be hard. I guess I’m hopeful that in the end I will be better trained for the #GRGus Groundhog Day Marathon come February. I think I consider it a failure when I can’t hit the intervals all right on with the expected pace. Maybe I’m focusing too much on the plan and trying to get better instead of just being content with being ready to simply finish the marathon. There is also the aspect of not losing sight of the reasons I run. #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun

The weather this morning was definitely more like Spring. I was on par to start but by the last couple of intervals I was losing steam. Still had a decent overall pace. I enjoyed the time to just be outside and have some quiet to think. #HWI #WhyIRun #Run4Water #RiverBankRun
Nearing the end of the Thursday training runs, one more next week before the big #GRMarathon day. These short training runs go by quick that is for sure. The #HWI team still has some more to go on the fundraising. There is still a match going on so every dollar someone gives is really two….
As I keep working on getting back into a regular running routine the part that is also key is the “why” behind it. The mission of raising money, and awareness of the need, for wells in Africa is not complete. That is a message that doesn’t end during the “off” season. #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun Help…
The winter running season has officially begun. It was just a light snow so the sidewalks were still clear for the most part. We’ll see what they’re like tomorrow after the snow accumulates. I’m not on a new training plan but an easy 6 mile run seemed like a good distance to shoot for. #HWI…
Enjoyed a run with some light snow falling. One challenge was that when I started things were clear, with no snow in the forecast, but a couple miles into the run the snow started and I noticed many slick spots on the sidewalk. And wouldn’t you know I had decided not to wear my cleats….
