It was a tough cold, windy, snowy, slippery morning for a “long” run but I got it done. #HWI #Run4Water #WhyRun #GroundhogMarathon #RiverBankRun
So today is the 2nd day since completing the marathon, and unfortunately I find myself in more of a discouraged state than in celebration of my accomplishment. There are many things going through my head, many thoughts that cause me to be more disappointed with marathon Sunday. Nothing played out like I had hoped. I ended up coming in behind most of all the other marathon runners from our group despite leading the pack throughout training. I didn’t get to cross the finish line with my running partner, or my kids. I ended up walking most of the last 4.5 miles. I ended up going to the medical aid tent after crossing the finish line. I have no photo of me crossing the finish line….
When visited Sierra Leone I was able to experience a village celebration of a new well. The joy and excitement that I saw made every mile I ran through #HWI worth every challenge, or pain, or struggle. #Run4Water #WhyIRun #GRMarathon Donate to Clean Water: https://timn.me/2Kx7NEr
The training schedule this week is starting to increase my weekly miles, so my mornings are going to begin getting earlier. Early mornings are actually hard for me but it’s the only way I can really make the time to run. Why would I choose to get up in the wee hours of the morning to run? This is part of #WhyIRun and my commitment to #Run4Water while hopefully inspiring others through my commitment. #HWI #RiverBankRun Give to clean water: https://timn.me/2Kx7NEr
Help me impact 19 more people with just $255 more to go. Don’t delay! https://timn.me/2Kx7NEr #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun #GRMarathon Putting a well in a village that has no reliable source of water, let alone clean water, has major long-term impacts. A village with a well becomes a source of hope, even for people not native to that village. It puts that village on a path of prosperity and growth.
