Since our family was flying to Minnesota very early the next morning I decided to get my long run in the night before. It started out very strange because as I ran I felt like I was slowly trudging along but when my audio coach gave me updates it was saying I was doing a pace under 9 min/mi which just didn’t seem possible. Then for the first half of the run I was just cruising. The second half of the run was a very different story. I’m not sure why I just hit the wall but it happened. I eventually decided to cut the run short at a half marathon distance. Giving how slow my pace was the last few miles I expected a…

Another Thursday morning training run in the books with my running partner. I look forward to our Thursday runs and catching up on each others’ lives. The relationships are one of the big things I love about being a part of the #HWI team. #GRMarathon #Run4Water #RunningRelationships Wyoming, Michigan, USA

It honestly kind of surprised me how close I was to getting in a half marathon distance in this morning. With the first hour of the run being a normal slower run I enjoyed a good time of worship and prayer. #HWI #Run4Water #WhyiRun #RiverBankRun
The TL;DR is: I am blessed more than I ever understood and I will make every effort to give thanks in all circumstances. Also, where God’s love exists there is always hope for something better. As I continue to process my experience in Sierra Leone Africa I can’t help but feel like I spent a week in another world. What I find simply amazing is that in a place so filled with hardship, and circumstances I can barely begin to comprehend, there are people that still manage to find joy, be generous, and show love and kindness to someone so very much unlike them. I chose this photo of children, not filled with smiles and laughter, but showing that theirs is a life of daily…
