Things were pretty good and steady throughout the run. The last couple of miles started to be a bit more of a struggle. I almost didn’t get my run in today. I don’t care for late night runs, and today I just couldn’t get myself out of bed in the morning to get the 2 hour run in. I knew that I had to get this run on because I just already missed last week’s long run. I made it out and got it done. #HWI #Run4Water #GroundhogMarathon #Garmin #Running

Being able to start my run later on a Saturday morning is a nice change from my early morning runs during the week. I actually get to enjoy some sunlight part way through my run. I still usually start when it’s dark so I still don the headlamp. Since today was a long “slow” run I just put on the worship music and let my body keep the pace it was comfortable doing, well for the most part. #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun #RiverBankRun
My run this morning consisted of a combo of an #Endomondo easy and a #HWI hard Tuesday run. Though many might see me as not knowing the meaning of an easy run, ha. I spent a lot of time reflecting on my time in Sierra Leone and the defining moment that occurred and encapsulates why I run. How do you process, and what action do you take when a woman is so desperate for water that she wants you to take her child away so that they have a chance to survive? That was it for me, #WaterIsLife and for many they would do something unthinkable for their children, let alone themselves, to survive. People tell me I’m crazy for running a marathon. Is anything…
Trying to go through even an “easy” run when the humidity is high is a challenge. When I get done I feel like I’ve taken the grossest shower anyone could ever take. #HWI #KCC #Run4Water #WhyIRun #GRHalfMarathon #RiverBankRun
Enjoyed a run with some light snow falling. One challenge was that when I started things were clear, with no snow in the forecast, but a couple miles into the run the snow started and I noticed many slick spots on the sidewalk. And wouldn’t you know I had decided not to wear my cleats. I surprisingly still finished with a pretty solid average pace. I haven’t really ran in much for significant weather yet this winter. We’ll see what Minnesota brings to my runs next week while visiting family. I get a lot of comments about not “taking a break” from running. And I don’t discount the concern people may have that I’m pushing myself towards injury. The reality of it though is that…
Another great morning with the #HWI team this morning. Had a great time finishing out the run talking with Steve, who gave an awesome and inspiring #WhyIRun story this morning. #Run4Water #GRMarathon
I took about a week break for recovery after the Groundhog Marathon. Normally I’d start a reverse training following a marathon, but with only 3 months to go before the Riverbank Run I really couldn’t afford the time in order to get a good amount of training in. With some new shoes, and a fresh coat of snow, it felt good to be back out there stopping on the pavement. #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun #RBR
