Sometimes when we least expect it a run can be really good. #HWI #KCC #Run4Water #WhyIRun #GRHalfMarathon #RiverBankRun
Attempting to do a long run in the evening after a full day of activities with the family proved to be a bad idea. While I started off strong I just totally ran out of steam after a little over 14 miles. My overall average was still better than I would have thought, but that might just be for the fact that I was really going too fast to start. The unfamiliar roads, darkness, and rolling hills also didn’t help. I think the biggest thing I can say is that it is much harder doing these long runs alone. I won’t say that it can’t be done, but having the company of a fellow runner makes a huge difference. #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun #GRMarathon Donate to…
As my wife and I have been on a journey of eating healthy, and being more active, I’m always interested in ideas for new recipes or things to try for snacks/meals/etc. Following some of the activity tracking app blogs or other runner blogs is always a good source of ideas. 4 Recipes for Runners: Eat Right – Run Better https://www.runtastic.com/blog/en/nutrition/4-recipes-for-runners-eat-right-run-better-2/ https://www.runtastic.com/blog/en/nutrition/dairy-free-carrot-walnut-cookie-recipe/
Got my first run in since coming back from #SierraLeone after trying to recover from jet lag and a cold. Felt great to be back out there, definitely with a whole new perspective of why I’m running. Spent a lot of time thinking about those I encountered in Sierra Leone as well as those running in the Bay Shore run today. #HWI #HessLakeRun #GRMarathon #Run4Water
It was nice to get out just when the sun first came up for my Saturday run, and the temperature was just right too. It’s not too often I get to run in the daylight. There was a bit more people out at that time, than my normal 4-5am, so I had to switch sides of the street I was running on a couple of times. #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun Even though things seems tough at times with what we are dealing with I still don’t see it being as nearly as tough as what many in Sierra Leone face every day. In Sierra Leone there are few that could be working from home.
No wind, perfect conditions for a run. It was warm enough that’s for sure. Glad to be back outside. #hwi #HessLakeRun #Run4Water #training #GRMarathon
