I set out to get a 6 mile run in, unfortunately when I was just past 5 miles I had an upper leg cramp hit me. I had to stop and walk if off before I could start back up again. Then nature called and it was a rush to get home. A lot of things to throw off my morning. Hopefully this week I can at least 4 runs in and back on a normal schedule. #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun

You know it’s going to be a hot and humid day when you feel it at 5am. Glad to be back out running after a week’s time of being out of it. I commend those that are able to keep up with their #training over vacations and while traveling. Looking forward to joining my running partner once again this week. #HWI #HessLakeRun #GRMarathon #Run4Water #SauconyRunChallenge
When you don’t get a good night’s rest it definitely has an impact on your running. This morning was especially touch trying to keep up with the fast interval paces. Trying to make my way through the snowy sidewalks didn’t help matters either. My running struggles pale in comparison to the struggles many face each day with finding water, and usually it’s not clean. #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun #GRGus Help provide clean water. https://timn.me/2Kx7NEr
The number of children in Africa that suffer from lack of clean water is staggering. I’ve been to Sierra Leone and seen first hand the hardship the people experience when they don’t have easy access to clean water, and I’ve seen the transformation when they do. #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun #RiverBankRun Give to Clean Water: https://timn.me/2Kx7NEr
A nice cool comfortable 5 mile run with my running partner. We did get caught in a little bit of rain towards the end of our run. I feel like we kept the pace on the easy side. I think we’re both surprised how close the #GRMarathon is, but we’re feeling ready for it. #HWI #Run4Water I’m still looking for some individuals to partner with me, about $200 to go, and help me hit the $1000 mark for wells in Africa. We have matching funds right now so for every $1 that is given it’s actually $2. #WaterIsLife #WhyIRun Donate Now – https://timn.me/2t9D4ne
While I have been involved with Hope Water International, I have seen first hand the lives that are changed. Obviously, being able to travel to Sierra Leone Africa I saw what kind of life change can occur for people there. However, the other place that lives are changed are right here within the #HWI Team. The support of each other in the HWI community has helped people accomplish more than they had ever thought. That is another reason #WhyIRun with the HWI Team. When you have a group that is on a mission to show love to people half way around the world that they may never know, that loves spills over into the group itself. #Run4Water #GRMarathon Donate to Clean Water: https://timn.me/2Kx7NEr
With my wife out of town I can’t be leaving the kids home alone, this means the treadmill it is. I think this is the first time I’ve been on the treadmill probably in the last 8-10 months. I literally can’t remember the last time I had to use it. For times like these I’m glad we have it or there would be no running. Since the treadmill required significantly less thought, except for changing the speed during the short interval run segment, it gave me ample time to think about the Sierra Leone team and trip. I continue to pray for our team’s planning and the journey to come. #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun #RiverBankRun
