This morning I worked hard to slow down and just enjoy the run. I did pretty well at making that happen. I was still faster then my training plan called for but only by about 30 sec/mile so in all it was a great morning! #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun #RiverBankRun Give the gift of clean water: https://timn.me/2Kx7NEr
Had a great HWI Team Daybreak Group Run this morning. I love our community, and I especially love running with someone else. Training on your own definitely takes a lot of discipline, and having these group runs make for a great motivator to keep going during the week. I’m hopeful that I can join a couple guys I’ve been running with during the week for some training runs. Oh, and to top things off I hit a Personal Best this morning for a 1 hour run. Great way to kick off the day and weekend! [endomondowp type=’workout’ workout_id=’931912560′ ] Walker, Michigan, United States of America

With the encouragement, and a little positive peer pressure ?, I decided to go for the full marathon. It’s been a long journey to get to today, and I’ve built some amazing friendships along the way. I don’t think I could have made it this far without my running…
When you simply hang out together … when you carve out time for your most important relationship… when you make a point of sharing the little day-to-day moments… the results of that in your marriage are profound. – Biblical Secrets to a Happy Marriage This morning during my devotions time I was challenged with how I think about my wife. I’d heard other couples talking about their spouse being their best friend but I’d never really given it much thought myself and sort thought friends were in a different group than my wife. My best friend was a guy that I have served with in ministry for years and was the best man in my wedding. However if there is anyone in my life that should…
I share this because I’m terrible at remembering to do this. I need to start doing stretches before I really injure myself. http://blog.mapmyrun.com/5-easy-warmup-moves-to-boost-your-runs/
Great weather for a run this morning. Starting to see a lot more runners out in the mornings now. Enjoyed another run focusing on listening to God instead of letting myself get totally consumed with the craziness of life. Counting down the days until I get on the plane to #SierraLeone #Africa with the team. #HWI #HessLakeRun #GRMarathon #Run4Water
