Sticking to the #Endomondo training plan meant getting up before 4am to get 13 miles of running in before my wife needed to leave the house by 6:15. I can say that I was overjoyed having to get up so early, but the alternatives were even less appealing. One thing that something like a time commitment, making sure I was home so my wife could leave, does is give you extra motivation to keep up the pace. And that was definitely going through my mind several times. I’m not 100% certain why but my pace slowed slightly after I hit about mile 9. I do think I made it harder on myself because I didn’t take salt tablets before the long run, nor during. I didn’t have any gu or gummies to give me any extra boost either. All-in-all I still got it done in a decent amount of time.
I took a few opportunities to pray for my wife, and the Slip ‘n Slide, as well as the #HWI Teams running together this morning. #Run4Water #WhyIRun #GRMarathon
