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.

I did the adjusted Shaggy Mountain loop. Went the backway out of the 'hood, up and over old flag hill, then up to Shaggy Mtn Road and then I came down Sharose and back up and over old flag hill home. It is perfectly the same distance as regular Shaggy Mountain Thursday, but I don't have to deal with being terrorized as I run through Nazi territory during daylight hours. 

Daisy came with me and had a good run too. She was much better on the road as we went home and she was unleashed than she can be sometimes, so I was glad. Didn't have to re-leash her and she could run free all the way home...we both could! :) 

It was slow as slow gets, but with recovery week I'm just glad I had the gumption to get out. My quads don't feel right. They don't feel sore...almost a zing in them like they are torn. Which doesn't make much sense to me, but whatever. I just need to take it easy and relax until they come back to me. I'm old and fragile now, I can't run endless miles like I used to! hahahaha. 

1:24 for the loop and I didn't walk any uphills. Which is always a feat for me!

Toby, I've been waiting too long to get out into the mountains :) Nice and easy...no road running!

Slick, that totally made me laugh. I'm sure feeling old lately...
