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!


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 decided that being a happy, functional wife and mother today was more important than getting up early to run...so, no miles :)

Rode the bike with the baby to the gym, hit kickboxing and during circut did 5 running laps to complete the 1 mile. Did my PT stuff for quads and ITB, then did 15 min of ab's class. Rode the bike home (uphill part!), and now am ready to get going on the house. My 5 yr old gets his tonsils out tomorrow morning, so I'll be short on miles tomorrow too so I may go late tonight and get a few in. It will probably help with MY anxiety about it too :)

oh, I think I found my speed and motivation. They've become solidified as an extra 7 pounds on my hips!!! I'm going to have to coax them out slowly this next month and maybe I'll get them back in time for TOU!!!

Good mom. I have been thinking about you lately... Stay cool RAD.

From RAD on Wed, Aug 05, 2009 at 13:46:44 from

More like lazy mom :) I think I'm on your mind, because you want me to take your spot on redrock, I want to too! Trust me...I'm thinkin' about it!!!

From Nancy on Wed, Aug 05, 2009 at 13:52:42 from

Riding a bike uphill with a baby trailer is more work than most mothers get in their lifetime. I think you'r doing great.

From marion on Wed, Aug 05, 2009 at 14:01:26 from

I feel your blah's too :) I am SO SO SO sorry about the 7#'s :p That is just UNFAIR!!! :) Go beat it off. Hills with the bike trailer is a BEAST! Way to go!

From RAD on Wed, Aug 05, 2009 at 14:15:17 from

Nancy, I kind of always think I'm getting in some extra good training when I have Nathan on the bike (we just have a seat, not a trailer)!

Marion, No need to feel bad about the 7#'s I enjoyed each and every calorie of it that I put in my mouth - just not the drag now! Funny what a difference just a small amount can make.

Your cross training will keep your fitness up.

From Carolyn in Colorado on Wed, Aug 05, 2009 at 15:50:15 from

I think you had a tough workout this morning, running or no.

From Bec on Wed, Aug 05, 2009 at 17:42:57 from

YOU FOUND IT!!!!! The motivation is back! We are going to do TOU!! Let's get you a BQ BABY! I am not waiting around to know about SGM anymore. Let's sign up today! Those 7 pounds are going to be pushed into the ground! Get ready LOGAN, here we come!!!! I will sale you RR for $55, no $50. Pretty cool team.

From Kelli on Wed, Aug 05, 2009 at 18:28:45 from

Better 7 than 11!!!

Good luck tomorrow. I hope he does well, just be sure to keep the meds in him so he never has to feel the pain!

From Smooth on Wed, Aug 05, 2009 at 18:34:05 from

Sounds like a busy day tomorrow. Hope all goes well with the tonsilectomy. Oh the joy of motherhood!!!

From Bec on Thu, Aug 06, 2009 at 11:22:31 from

Good luck today, I am still thinking and praying for you! I left you a little note at FB.

From Leandra on Thu, Aug 06, 2009 at 12:48:13 from

Hope the tonsil removal went good! And even though you didn't run, you still got in a hard class and cross training helps so much. Keep it up! Oh and biking with a baby attached is hard work!

From LuzyLew on Thu, Aug 06, 2009 at 13:38:12 from

Oh wow. Getting the old tonsils out is really hard. I'm so sorry for your kid, and for you. I hope it keeps him from getting more strep and/or ear infections(I'm guessing that's why). Sorry about the 7 pounds, that always makes me sad and it's so hard to go back to regimented eating. But you are so tall, probably no one can tell but you. Good luck with the tonsils and slowly working your way back to speedy-ville.
