Since our family was flying to Minnesota very early the next morning I decided to get my long run in the night before. It started out very strange because as I ran I felt like I was slowly trudging along but when my audio coach gave me updates it was saying I was doing a pace under 9 min/mi which just didn’t seem possible. Then for the first half of the run I was just cruising. The second half of the run was a very different story. I’m not sure why I just hit the wall but it happened. I eventually decided to cut the run short at a half marathon distance. Giving how slow my pace was the last few miles I expected a terrible finishing average pace. Seeing what I ended with I can’t complain too much. I can definitely say the less then stellar nutrition of the week is probably what sabotaged my run. We’ll see what a week of running in Minnesota brings. #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun #GRGus

Every day the #HWI team gets out to train for the #GRMarathon is a show of our commitment to the cause of clean water in Africa. I have seen first hand the changes that reliable clean water bring to a village in #SierraLeone through the smiling faces, and brightness in the eyes, of children. #Run4Water…

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…
A little bit of rain tonight but we got our campsite setup, had supper over the camp stove, got a #swim in, and had a #campfire. We don’t let a little rain keep us from enjoying some camping. #FamilyCamping Dorr, Michigan, United States of America
