I met up with my running partner at the Riley Street Middle School this morning, and we tackled a new running route. Runner’s know you don’t want change up too much at once. It was a mostly rural run, had to run the roads for the majority of the route, but that was just fine, while have some good conversation with my running partner. #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun #RiverBankRun

I shifted my long run day to Thursday. It’s OK right now, I have a feeling it’s going to be harder when I need to do a 12 mile run in the wee hours of a Thursday morning before work. #HWI #Run4Water #GRHalfMarathon #Garmin #HalfMarathon #Running
Today was a pretty big day for me. I completed my first ever marathon. It was a tough day, with the down pouring rain, wind gusts of 20 some miles per hour, and getting cramps in my legs that slowed me down, I ended the race pretty discouraged. Not to mention I ended up having to be taken to the medic tent after crossing the finish line, which was something my running partner and I had talked about not wanting to have happen to us. Let’s just say it was a pretty humbling experience. I’m so thankful for all of the encouragement from the many Hope Water International runners the kept encouraging me on the way to the finish line. I especially appreciate Ron Bussa and Nick…
Despite the stormy winter weather I was able to make some decent time. Having cleats that go over my running shoes is a huge help with any sort of snow and ice I encounter. The real problem was having my running glasses getting fogged up so often from the cold wind. I enjoyed some worship music while running despite most of my focus being on the ground in front of me. I spent a little time praying for a friend’s family due to some major medical issues. I think if I can manage this mornings weather I’ll be ready for the #GroundhogDayMarathon and whatever I get hit with. #HWI #Run4Water Donate to Wells – https://timn.me/2t9D4ne
Another training run in the books. I could definitely feel the soreness in my legs from the half marathon still. I could also tell that some bad eating the previous few days was affecting how I was feeling while running. I really need to get back on track with things. I did enjoy another day of switching up my running routes. Alimamy, our Enable The Children sponsored child, was on my mind early in my run since we got our welcome packet the day before. I’m torn knowing that life for a disabled person in Sierra Leone is a drastically harder life compared to the U.S. I pray that God would continue to bring more light and opportunities to the children of #ETC. #HWI #GRMarathon…
After a couple week break, a new phone, new app, and a new training plan I’m back to my early morning runs. I’m hoping that I can get back into things. #HalfMarathon #Training
Enjoyed hanging out with the #HWI team once again for a Saturday morning group run. The best part of a group run is engaging in some great conversation while knocking out the miles. It was great to catch up with my long time running partner. #Run4Water #WhyIRun #RiverBankRun
