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.
Hooray for sleep. I don't know how you do all the running you do with those little kids. Do you ever get to sleep?

Good for you to get sleep, probably a really smart idea. You were being "normal." I hope you enjoyed the holiday weekend. Think about PC, Smooth said it's a great idea...perfect training run. (If we go slow). Give that leg another week and then sign up!

Carolyn, it was a nice sleepy day! I usually stay up too late to do stuff I can't do while the kids are awake.
Bec, I think I probably will do PC with you! I'm guessing a 16 this week, 20 next then 2 week 'taper'. Give me a week to make sure I'm not going to sacrifice all my work on my quad and I'll do it!

Nice sleep!!! :)
Hey, PM me your email address and I will put you on the notification of the Chump runs.
Hope you are enjoying your day!

Do PC and make sure to NOT race it. Keep Bec reigned in too. You two can be too fast for your own good.
Oh, it will be so fun to be in the same race with you girls.

Smooth- I don't think I could 'race' a marathon right now. I'll make sure Bec doesn't take off too! I'm excited you're running it too, it will be a blast!
