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've been a bad blogger lately! I haven't been around enough to check on all your blogs, so I apologize. Thanks for supporting me and checking on me anyway. I hope to get out and make the rounds on blogs today...so make it a good one for me! :)

Nice run this morning, the shins felt better - not cured, but SO much better than yesterday. I opted for my 6 mile, more uphill miles, route  instead of my planned 7 that does the first 3.5 downhill. Sore quads from 5 miles of hiking downhill from the tram at Snowbird. I seriously don't know how you trail runners do it! I'll stay snails pace on the trails for now :)

I'm going to baby these shins again today and do the scraping/massage tonight again (it seems to help the most!) and then take Friday completely off running to rest for my 15 on Saturday.

I think I need some running company. Everyone I see out running I think I recognize...I thought I saw an old friend from HS today, but nope just wishful thinking :) I also picked out Teena, Kelli, Barnes and Julie from the gym. None of them were really them, I tell ya...I must be going crazy, or am just really lonely. Anyone up for a 15 on Saturday? I'd appreciate some company so I don't imagine I'm chasing you all during the run anyway :)

AP: 9:02 splits: 9:41, 8:37, 8:51, 8:47, 9:20 (my hill of death - so proud I kept it under 9:30! and kind of by accident as well), 9:04, 8:30 (last .2)

**Boot camp class kicked my hiney today! we ran 3 repeats of our .2 loop in the back of the gym, so I did 2 more at the end to round out an extra mile. The last one with the class I was sprinting (practice for my race with KP), then the last 2 I'd sprint down, then recover back. Good little shot of speed work**

I wish I could run 15 miles. I'm going to Fish Lake Thursday through Sunday so I probably won't get much exercise done. Good luck with your run.

OH woman, your a great blogger and you've got over 17 milse in this week already. Just keep plugging away at your SGM race schedule and plan and stuff will work out.

The getting up is the esaiest thing to do, it's the going to bed when I know theres daylight out there wasting away while I'm in bed....

From KP on Wed, Aug 11, 2010 at 14:14:42 from

nice job on the sprints!

From RAD on Wed, Aug 11, 2010 at 14:39:22 from

Nancy, enjoy fish lake! Camping give you a bit of x-training :)

QP, LOVE the 'bird - especially the wildflowers :) Missed your company on the hike.

Tom, SGM is what gets me up in the morning to get out. I have a handsome little boy to keep up till around 10 each night :)

KP, Today you totally would've kicked my trash! They were slow sprints, I need to keep practicing :)

From Smooth on Wed, Aug 11, 2010 at 15:36:45 from

Glad the shin feels better. I'd run with you but I can't keep up with your pace! NICE runS and bootcamp today!

From Calvin on Wed, Aug 11, 2010 at 15:39:52 from

From Bec on Wed, Aug 11, 2010 at 16:52:48 from

What a workout crazy lady! Shins are hurting? That is new for you isn't it? Well, I hope you are feeling better soon. As for the 15, wish I could join but you know I can't. My goal for SGM is to just keep up with you!

From Scott Wesemann on Wed, Aug 11, 2010 at 18:46:43 from

Hey, it looks like you are picking up your mileage. Good to see you back at it (like you ever stopped :) ). Hope you have a great week.
