Help bring clean water to those who need it most...

This late morning run was really difficult for me…It was hot. The sun was beating down on me. I was soooo tired. And as I was running, this poem was texted to me. I listened to it being read while stretching outside before I got water which I was “just dying for.” Let’s just say, more than a bit teary eyed as I was completely humbled, grateful and re-energized to be running for such a basic need for people.

If you didn't know, I'm doing something on October 16 that I said I would never do: a half marathon. I'm doing it to raise money through World Vision to being water to places where the water is too far away or contaminated. This is a big deal. Too many people (so many children) die because they don't have access to something that we take for granted every day (maybe hour...maybe minute) or our lives. Let's do something about it!

Dear water,
It was hard to get to you.
Waking up at dawn
Buckets on our heads
Donkeys loaded with jerrycans.
Miles we walked
In the scorching heat
To look for you.
Dear water,
At last you came.
Sweet water
Our backs are rested
The miles are no more
Diseases are gone.
For you are closer to us.
Dear water,
You are such a blessing.

If your heart is touched by the voice of these precious children, please consider giving a small donation to bring easy, clean water to those in need. Below is the link to my team Team World Vision 2021 Kansas City Marathon fundraising page (along with a sweaty, teary pic of me).

Fall Fit Fast: 21-Day Wellness Challenge

Have you been interested in learning more about Intermittent Fasting...or wanting to get back into the practice after doing something else for a while? 

I've got you! 

Monday, September 13 is the start of the newest E. H. Fitness 21-Day Wellness Challenge, Fall Fit Fast, and it is dedicated to all the following good stuff: 

  • Get sugar cravings under control
  • Sleep better
  • Build strength without having to step into a gym (or in a gym if you prefer)
  • Eat real food to fuel your body
  • Decrease body fat
  • Reduce inflammation
We will be easing into fasting and learning about what it can actually do for us and how it can work for you! 

My favorite part of Intermittent Fasting (IF) is the amount of physical and mental time and energy I save...I mean think of how much time (and brain power) you'll free up while not eating (or thinking about what to eat) in the mornings!

We will be learning all the ways that IF can benefit our bodies and's going to be a great time! PLUS, lots of extras including  Workout Videos and 21-days of dinner suggestions (so you don't have to decide what to put on plates every evening...more time and energy saved!)
