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.

Pacing the St George half marathon. I was pacing the 1:50 with Shawna Dibb. I wasn't completely confident in my skills at hitting this pace, especially with my back. I took some excederin and my back loosened up enough that the first few miles weren't horrible.  We settled into an 8:15 quite well and remained about 25-30 seconds ahead of pace despite the hills and crazy course. Mile 7 hill went well and the downhill invigorated me and I was ready to hit the pace accurately. However, around mile 10ish, my hips/back started aching and I was worried about my back holding up. Luckily at mile 11 two of the people who had been with us from the beginning dropped back and were having a hard time keeping pace. So I dropped back with them to encourage them and get them into the finish. It was certainly worth it and a welcome pace for my back as well. I truly wasn't complaining! Finished just at 1:51 and it was nice to watch those two finish strong! 

Lauren ran the 5K just over 29 minutes and was 5th in her AG (15-19).  We took off rather quickly and showered and loaded up to head back home.

at 6:30 I met Cyle and Whitney and I sparred a few rounds. I'm feeling a lot better about my boxing skills and with 6 more weeks I think I should ceratinly be able to hold my own against another amatuer.
