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.

YEA!!! Another fabulous Saturday run with fabulous friends! We did miss a few of you due to those nasty spring flus that are going around - hope you feel better soon!!

Kelli and I met early and did 6 - Then we ran 12 with the group. I tried to keep up with Becca to keep my pace up, dang that girl is fast!! It was rough for me at times and I know she was holding back for me, but she has Boston next week so she should go slow :)

We had a great time afterward with juice and cookies - no we're not 3, we just appreciate good food!! The rain held off for the whole run and just started to get cold and sprinkle as we were leaving. I wish every running morning could be like this -weather was cool and shady and  no moisture!!

AP for the run was 9:01 (2hrs 51min total). splits: 9:35, 9:01, 9:22, 8:27, 8:30, 8:33, 9:31, 8:56, 8:47, 9:40, 9:22, 9:05, 8:13, 9:38, 9:10, 8:46, 8:37, 8:36, 9:28

And thanks for the ride and the chat!

You did great today!!! You had some awesome splits in there and you looked so strong at the end---I bet you could easily have done another 7 miles.

Thank you for the OJ! We timed that good with the rain drops. I think you 'forced' the rain to come later.

You are doing great. I bet you will get a great time on the Ogden Marathon. I never trained that much for any of the marathons I ran.

From Smooth on Sat, Apr 11, 2009 at 16:45:45 from

I'm with Nancy. You trained so well, fast and strong. 19 miles today!!! WOW!!! Did you even gu or drink on the run? You're an awesome runner. Can't wait to see you reap the reward of your training at Ogden. THANKS for the OJ and for ordering the perfect weather this morning. Have a HAPPY EASTER. Hope your kids got to do some "hunting".

I really should not have read yours and Smooth's reports. I was really sad to have missed anther opportunity at having you guys torture me :) I would have come, and plan to come again when I can. Yo're holding so strong! Your marathon is going to be awesome. Anyway, I hope to come run again soon!

From Bec on Sat, Apr 11, 2009 at 17:15:41 from

We need to do a long run again. I had a blast with you! Thank you for entertaining me for those 12 miles. I had so mush fun getting to know you a little more.

RAD, you are a runner! I am so excited to see you accomplish running goals this year. I know that you will continue to improve and see a lot of PR's in your future. You will take Ogden by surprise.
