This morning was one of those where after the alarm went off I had to convince myself to get up and get ready to run instead of going back to bed. I have never been a morning person, so for me to look for an excuse to stay longer in bed, instead of getting up at 4am, is no surprise. Every day is a series of choices and I’m glad today I won the battle between my bed and the road. #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun #RiverBankRun

Despite the thoughts of quitting early because it was just too bad out, or too slippery, I pushed through and got it done. #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun #RiverBankRun
This past week I was reading a YouVersion devotional written by a marathon runner. The author talked about the point during the marathon when we are faced with the question “why am I doing this?”. This can also happen during those tough training days. #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun #GRGus Today was a good day, but on a long run the question of why can still pop up. Why did I wake up a 5am on a Saturday to run 14 miles? The reason for me is 3-fold. First is the mission to continue sharing the need for clean water. Second is do my best to stay active and healthy. The third reason is to be an example to my kids, and by getting up early I’m…
As I ran this morning I couldn’t help but think about the impact that #COVID19 is having on our world and not just with those infected, having died, or those secluding themselves bin protection. There is the global economic impact that I fear will also impact giving to those that have been in need. When there is a huge need for support of those that have lost there jobs right around you it seems challenging to be asking for money to send overseas for wells. The world challenges of poverty and access to clean water didn’t go away when the virus hit, those needs are still very much there and now more needs have been added on top. #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun
At the end of the day, it’s not about how far or how fast you’ve gone, it’s about getting out there and getting it done. It’s about bringing the hope of clean water to the world. #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun #RiverBankRun
Today started off a little bit slower. There was a little bit of a communication problem with breakfast but it all worked out with plenty of time before our World Hope transportation arrived. Terry and I actually had a little time to chat with some of the hotel staff after breakfast during and after the butchering of our goat. Yes, Terry and I got to see them butchering “litte Ron” as some of us liked to call him. We explained a little bit about Hope Water International and the partnership with World Hope. Once our rides arrived we loaded up and headed to the office to meet up with some World Hope staff that would be joining us for the day in Katherie. Once things…
Getting in my 3 miles before we head out for another week of camping. Even though I got out later than normal it was still surprisingly not too hot. Next few runs will be in the Wisconsin Dells. #HWI #KCC #Run4Water #WhyIRun #GRHalfMarathon #RiverBankRun
