Together we can make a difference. 

On October 20, 2013, I will be running 26.2 miles in my first marathon (the Des Moines IMT Marathon). During my half marathon training last year, I decided this year's race would be about something more than personal achievement so I am running to raise money to build a clean water well in India. The need is great but all it takes is a few friends giving $1/mile to impact thousands of lives. Would you consider supporting me in this effort?

DONATE HERE or you can mail your donation to GPPD (address below) with a note that you are giving toward Houdeshell clean water well campaign. Enter total donation amount below.

Marathon training thus far...

I've just started my 12th week in a 17-week training schedule and I continue to be amazed at what God allows me to do. So far I have logged 262 miles, my weekly long runs are longer than a 1/2 marathon and I have overcome a lot of hurdles. Two weeks ago, I sprained a toe on my left foot and got to the point I couldn't walk. Three days later, my foot was healed and I ran 8 miles pain free. Praise God! I spend a lot of my training time worshiping and praying for friends and family. Lately I have been thinking and praying for those lives that will be impacted by having a Clean Water Well.
