Clean water has a huge effect on a village. When clean water is readily available it means students can go to school that would have otherwise had to spend their days collecting water. An education opens up so many doors for children and gives them hope for a brighter future. #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun #GRGus Make An Impact, Give to Clean Water: https://timn.me/2Kx7NEr
After the slow start this week I wasn’t sure how an interval run would go. #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun #RiverBankRun
It was a hard run, especially with the snow, but I got it done. #HWI #Run4Water #GroundhogMarathon #Garmin #Running #snow
The morning started off a bit later than it should have but I still got my 4 miles in. The run was still a bit of a challenge… #HWI #KCC #Run4Water #WhyIRun #GRHalfMarathon #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….
After a couple of weeks of tough interval runs I finally nailed one pretty well. I think my take away is that when it comes to training, as with much in life, you are going to have hard days that you can barely get through. Those are the days you have to have in order to have growth and future success. So we need to celebrate the hard days just as well as good days. #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun #GRGus Donate to Water, to Life – https://timn.me/2t9D4ne
