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.

Too lazy to wake up. Did step at the gym (I don't think I've sweat that much in a month!) then ran an easy 5K on the TM - again tried to work on form, I've decided Mondays are my form days. AP was 8:30, but I bumped it up the last .25 to 7:20 just to get it done...I HATE the TM.

I've got my registration for PC all worked out! Thanks everyone for help in tracking stuff down!

I'm with you. I hate the TM too.

From Smooth on Mon, Aug 17, 2009 at 15:25:41 from

Mondays should be sleep-in days. Most of the books I read put Mon as rest day, although they have long runs on Sun. I could never get motivated on Mon. especially on a TM!

So excited you'll be at PC! It should be a fun run for us! Can't wait to see you!

From Bec on Mon, Aug 17, 2009 at 17:10:40 from

I want to be at PC with you this Saturday. I am still planning to run with you two (you and Smooth). Let me know about the BBK group this week, if you haven't already.

From Nancy on Mon, Aug 17, 2009 at 17:51:35 from

I'm glad you can sleep in. I can't sleep in even when I can. The latest I've slept in all summer is 6 am. I hate the tread mill also.

From Cal on Mon, Aug 17, 2009 at 17:56:49 from

does this mean you're officially in PC?

From RivertonPaul on Mon, Aug 17, 2009 at 21:38:05 from

Cool about PC. Wish they hadn't canceled my step class at the gym.

From Brent on Mon, Aug 17, 2009 at 22:42:16 from

Devine - good luck at PC. Taper mode?

I am so happy you were able to work out PC!! I will miss all of you terribly. But if I didn't run Hobble Creek I would miss all of them terribly.

Have a GREAT race!!

Mondays are rough! Way to get up and get moving later on in the day. I want to try step! I love sweating a ton, it's the only way I feel like I get a good workout. That's why I like running for exercise.

From Bec on Tue, Aug 18, 2009 at 13:26:23 from

Missed you today. I didn't have my music in my ears, and it was more fun! I have your blue thing you left at the store, I will have to give it to you on Saturday. I miss you, are you going to BBK's on Thurs, or are you taking it easy this week?
