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

Love playing games with my kids. We want to start doing a family game night once a week. Jacob enjoyed beating me at marbles. Then we had fun playing Rush Hour, and Jacob wanted to keep playing instead of having snack.
I went from half falling asleep while I was getting my shoes on to pounding out 5.9 miles. All it takes is getting out the door. #HWI #HessLakeRun #GRMarathon #Run4Water #GodTime
Another Thursday morning training run in the books with my running partner. I look forward to our Thursday runs and catching up on each others’ lives. The relationships are one of the big things I love about being a part of the #HWI team. #GRMarathon #Run4Water #RunningRelationships Wyoming, Michigan, USA
I wouldn’t call myself a Matthew McConaughey fan, but what he talks about in this news report is exactly where I’ve been at. If we stop worrying what the government is or isn’t doing and start carrying for each other I think we’re going to be much better off in the long run. Turning on…
