A well in a village in Africa is an important part of the community, and something to be guarded for sure. You will usually see a fence around the well in order to keep animals and thieves away. There is a national standard for the well pump, which also makes it a target for theft. Clean water is as valuable as gold in some places in the world. #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun #GRMarathon

I had the pleasure of finishing out the last 10 miles of my run with my #HWI teammate Justin. It’s so nice to have both the motivation, and distraction, of someone else on the longer runs. It really helps melt the miles away. This is Justin’s first year with Hope Water, and his first marathon. I enjoyed being able to share my previous years of experience and what I’ve learned. #Run4Water #WhyIRun #GRMarathon

I had the opportunity to witness, first hand, the water situation in Sierra Leone, Africa. It is an honor that Hope Water Intl is working with World Hope Intl in a joint mission to bring clean water to Africa. I am proud to know that #WHI is not just sending Americans into Africa to help and leave, but rather they train and employ locals to carry out the mission. Whether they need drivers, administration, or well drillers, nearly everyone is a national. I didn’t get a chance to hear each of their stories on how they got to where they are today. I can only imagine the amazing stories they must have. #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun #GRMarathon

Another 4 miles in today on the journey for clean water. More wells in Africa means more lives changed, bringing new life and a brighter future families. #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun #GRMarathon

Some may ask, after a few years of raising money for wells, “why more wells?”. What most don’t even think about is both the pros and the cons of a new well in a village. You may be surprised to even think that there could be a downside to a new well in a village. A new well not only provides for a village but now there are those outside the village they will come because the water source is closer. Some may even relocate to a village because there is a new water source that is readily available. So the reality of it is that the more wells there are for people the less strain there will be on a village, in more ways than one. #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun #GRMarathon

It was a challenging morning between the heat and getting half way through my run before a stomach issue. Fortunately, I found a porta-john on my running route.

I haven’t posted a run selfie in awhile, but I just wanted to a face to all the running once in awhile so people know in really out there putting the miles in. 😉 Needless to say, just like anyone else, today was one of those especially tough runs. It doesn’t matter where you are at in your running you will have those tough run days. You know ones where you feel like it’s an uphill battle the whole way. Rest assured though, you’ll get through it and then you’ll have one of the best runs you’ve ever had and you can be thankful that you pushed through those hard days. I encourage every runner to start every day as a new day and just put one foot in front of the other. Eventually you’ll surprise yourself in how far you’ve gone. #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun #GRMarathon
