Today was my longest run yet. I had a rough day yesterday and had to switch my rest day. Today I wasn’t quite 100% but headed out anyway. The first mile was my toughest yet. Finally I began to relax and settle in to a decent run/walk interval set. There is still such a long way to go, but I’m learning to overcome the “I don’t wanna’s”, while also listening to my body when I really need to listen. I’m so thankful that for me it’s not a matter of survival. Water is the stuff of life. World Vision brings decades of experience to delivering hope to suffering communities. I have partnered with them. If you partner with me, together we change the world. WATER. HOPE. LIFE.
Sometimes the reward is unexpected… Taking on a physical challenge for a higher purpose has many unexpected benefits. Thanks for all your support!
Today a few of us ran together on the longest run yet in our Team World Vision marathon training plan. We make a little more progress each time, which is a bonus. It was a beautiful day in the park. Longer days lay ahead, but today was nothing but fun… Thanks to all who have donated!
If you haven’t, please consider sponsoring my run. Donations of any amount are accepted by World Vision. $50 will provide clean water to one person for one year. http://tinyurl.com/timstidhamTWV
A nice evening run with my wife tonight! We covered a tiny bit more distance and felt better doing it so I guess that’s progress. But real progress will be eliminating the need for fresh water in our lifetimes. $50 will supply one person fresh water for one year. http://www.tinyurl.com/timstidhamTWV
What can I say? It’s so beautiful today! Such an incredibly small sacrifice so that others can have access to the source of life. I’m thankful today for God’s grace. Strength for life and hope for the future… Thank you to all who have sponsored me at:
Watch the video above for some testimonials about the decision to invest in people who need clean water. I can’t imagine waking up each day wondering if my family will have clean water to drink. I am moved to partner with others on the front lines of saving lives. World Vision is a great organization seeking to share Christ’s compassion with those in need. The beauty of this opportunity is how it changes my life and the lives of my friends who share in the journey with me. As our lives are changed by this experience, others will receive access to clean water. Please pray for me and do what you can for those in need.
