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

Still trying to figure out what I’m doing for running right now. I started a couple of #10K #training plans, but none of them provide me with goals and coaching while I run. #Strava #running #AndroidWear #WearOS

After still not quite getting much in for running the last two weeks I decided to just start a new training plan. For me, I need the motivation of a plan. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not a matter of if I don’t have a plan I won’t run, it does make it harder, but…
It was a cold, wet, windy morning for a training run. I couldn’t really focus on much other than to just keep pushing forward. The rain did get me thinking about whether it was the rainy season still in Sierra Leone, and how Alimamy and his mother were managing. #HWI #GRMarathon #Run4Water #WhyIRun
Nothing can replace time. Kids don’t need things; they need time. YouVersion plan ‘Better Together’. Check it out here:http://bible.com/r/Qc Just last night I had the opportunity to help start the Watch D.O.G.S. program at my children’s elementary school. One of the reasons for this is put together so nicely in my devotions this morning, showing…
Got another New Year’s day run in this morning. As you can see it was a pretty cold morning. I think I’m just about ready for anything that might hit for Groundhog Day Marathon. #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun #GRGus
