I made the mistake of deciding to get my run in after getting home from a weekend away camping. This of course meant doing my run in the middle of the afternoon when the sun was full on and it was hot. Thankfully it was only 3 miles, and planned as an “easy” run. My time/pace was actually faster than I had planned, I really should have taken it slower, though I did take some walking breaks so there is that. #HWI #Run4Water #GRHalfMarathon #Running #Garmin

I felt really out of sync this morning. As others have pointed out from the HWP Team what you eat the day before has an impact on your runs. It wasn’t that I ate bad all day but I didn’t fuel myself enough to prepare for my run this morning. I’m still trying to figure out how to manage my eating. I’ve been on this weight loss path and I’m struggling with figuring out how to eat “normal” now that I’m at a healthy weight. I’ve lost 7 pounds beyond my second goal and I really need to stop losing weight. Still some work to do, that’s for sure. [endomondowp type=’workout’ workout_id=’864426504′ ]
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
Today was a pretty big day for me. I completed my first ever marathon. It was a tough day, with the down pouring rain, wind gusts of 20 some miles per hour, and getting cramps in my legs that slowed me down, I ended the race pretty discouraged. Not to mention I ended up having to be taken to the medic tent after crossing the finish line, which was something my running partner and I had talked about not wanting to have happen to us. Let’s just say it was a pretty humbling experience. I’m so thankful for all of the encouragement from the many Hope Water International runners the kept encouraging me on the way to the finish line. I especially appreciate Ron Bussa and Nick…
For many even the road to a dirty water source is a treacherous one. A well placed well brings both clean water, and safety, to a village in Africa. I’m still looking for some additional partners to commit to the final $255 of my goal. Will you be that partner? https://timn.me/2Kx7NEr #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun #GRMarathon In the village of Ronkorhun they must travel over a rickety bridge, during the rainy season when the creek is flowing, to get to a hole in the ground where they collect their water. Can you imagine risking your safety to get water that can make you sick? That’s the situation many of those in Afeica are in. This morning was another speed work morning. On top of that I…
Finally got out this morning for my first run since the marathon. Doing a reverse taper, doing the training plan in reverse, as a way to ease back in. Felt great to be out there again, despite the cold and rain. #HWI
