Short-Term Running Goals:

Okay, so for 2013 I am going to have FUN! Not that running isn't always fun, but I had a wonderful breakthrough year last year and I want to play this year :) AND get faster! So, my first goal I'm going to put out there is my yearly mileage goal.
It is 2,186 miles from my driveway to my sister (QP's) driveway! I want to spend this year on a virtual trek cross country running those miles. So, that is how far I will run in 2013...from my house to QPs. It will take all year and yes, this is measured on Hwys so it isn't really exactly how I COULD run it, but good enough. 43 miles/week...totally doable, and a fun goal to track how far I've traveled as I go along. Who knows...maybe I'll even run PAST her house :)

I will do more trail runs, Boston, Pacing duties, another Half IM and some other tris. I'm excited for this next year and look forward to having fun with all of you out on the roads, and trails! Maybe bag a few peaks this year too!!

Long-Term Running Goals:


Big Dreams: 5K in 20:2X; 10K in 39:XX; Half in 1:29:XX; Full in 3:15:XX; complete the Rim2Rim2Rim run and not die; Comrades; Iron(wo)Man.

Run for the rest of my life!

Personal:

4 children: twelve, eight, five and baby Fartlek - 2 1/2. Wonderful supportive husband that lets me drag him and the family all over for race after race!

Finished 13 marathons and LOVE running that distance! I'm definitely hooked to the marathon monster and hope to constantly improve my endurance, speed and stay injury free!

I've also found a love of trail running! I hope to keep improving on this front.

After being injured with a broken foot at the first of 2012 I found a tri group and started training with them and am now loving tris! The half IM was harder than I'd ever imagined...and am ready to do it again. I'll earn my bike butt and someday have enough time to train for a full IM.

I had to come back here today to read my Ogden 2012 race report...my first BQ. 

My life has changed a lot since those days, but one thing hasn't: my love for this blog and the people I met here! So, I had to write a little quaint note about life. I need to get back here and blog more. I think it would help my motivation.

Well, motivation may be the wrong word. I run, a lot still. But, running has taken on new meaning in my life. Due to Zac's death and the health issues that have plauged me since then, I've had to adapt to a new normal. I'm not the speed focused runner I once was. I just run what I want, when I want and at whatever pace I want. I don't feel like my body is quite ready to tackle the training burden that comes with speed...or maybe I'm just being lazy about it and using it as an excuse. I haven't quite figured it out yet. 

I've started working towards new goals, but they are typically more along the lines of simply getting through the day without taking a nap AND being productive! HA! It rarely happens. But, baby Fartlek is carrying the torch for me. 

He is currently getting ready for the State USATF meet and trying to qualify for Nationals. I hope that he is able to make it. He has worked really hard this season and is running quite well right now! 13:27 for a 3K on grass with hills. Dang! Then I read my race report...I used to be able to keep up with him! 

My pace is around a 9-9:30 AP on most runs and then I'll throw in some trails and those are even slower. But, I enjoy my time moving and my friends and nature. I CAN run! So, I just drink in every minute and I've learned to just not care about pace. Maybe someday again...someday :)
