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.

Moab Red Hot 33K. 

I was supposed to run the 55K but with my lack of training the past 6 weeks I figured that I could push through the 55K or I could drop to the 33K and run with my sister and enjoy the day. Right now, enjoying running is my thing. So, enjoy we did! 

I was afraid it would be freezing cold, but oh it was beautiful! The mud was frozen, but the sun was out and I even shed my long sleeve throw away shirt before we started. There was still snow on the trail so we brought yak trax just in case. Neither of us wanted a helicopter rescuse for a fall! It was an incredibly lovely morning, blue skies, great company, fun runners around us. Helping others along the way, stopping for pictures, enjoying the aid stations, taking in the incredible view and chatting for hours. It was seriously the perfect day. Great memories with lots of fun and an incredible run to add to it. Our relationship of 36 years was celebrated well! (just in case you don't get it...My birthday is Monday, I'm turning 36 so I've been with my big sisters for 36 years! 

The finish line came all too soon (not for my legs, but for my heart! I could've stayed out there all day) and it was fun to see Lauren and David who had come down with me. Water Boy for my sister was also there. A perfect ending to a great race. Then a shower and dinner at Zax and ice cream and hot tubbing finished off the evening. It was an incredible day. I sincerely wish every day could be like this. It was near perfection! I'm certainly a desert girl and Moab is heaven for me. Luckily, my sister feels the same!

Nice race! Good for you to drop to the 33k and run with your sis, much more fun!
