Wake-up Workout

A highlight of last weekend was early morning wake-up workout each day with the good men of Renew Church and the camaraderie of brotherhood to push toward our best while fostering ambitions much greater than mere self-improvement.

Go Farther Together!

 

Most of our weekend was spiritual exercise for the Renew Men’s Intense Jesus Weekend, yet we began each day bodily exercise (7-minute workout) and some running like this. Under a mile, up a good steep incline, and close to twenty minutes total movement. (Here’s a couple fun timelapse videos.)

Proud of these men for pushing one another out of our comfort zones.

One Hundred Superheroes!

Go Farther Together

Team World Vision sent me this postcard for reaching a significant milestone in fundraising. Well, WE did it, and many of YOU are to thank for that!

Let’s be clear though: the real Superheroes are the women and children who must go far every day to fetch unclean water just to survive! 

Go Farther Together

For a mere $50 we can provide life-saving clean water for children in communities with the potential to solve the world water crisis in our generation.

Made it to first goal of providing water for 100 children. More work to do. Thanks Team World Vision for the new tri kit, which I’ll wear in #IMAZ703.

LonelimanThe Loneliman 38.3 wasn’t so lonelyIt began as an idea to celebrate 38 years, take the place of a cancelled local triathlon race in training effort, and especially incite a cause for celebration: CLEAN WATER! While solo wearing bib #1 for the “race,” the whole family was a solid support crew, the children in Africa were on my mind — in their loneliness fetching unclean water — and the thoughts, words, prayers and donations of so many truly caused me to swimbikerun faster.

Loneliman was a success because you gave!

My race time doesn’t matter as much as the funds raised for World Vision water projects. Be the end of the weekend we had reached $3,917, which provides life-saving clean water for 78 more children in Africa! 

Now we’re fast approaching our initial goal of providing water for 100 children in Africa

Here’s my recap with stories about what transpired as I perspired.

After swimming a mile, and cycling 31.1 miles, it was time to run 6.2 miles to complete 38.3 total in the Loneliman.
