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.

Backwards kind of day. Slept in (due to yesterdays fiasco) then had some morning appointments, so by the time I got done I had enough time to make it to lunch with some running friends and then head off to the gym for a bit before having to come home for kids.

Did an hour long sweat fest in the spin room, then went out to the TM and did 3 miles @  8:34 pace. Yup, I'm not a good afternoon runner. I was SO sick and lightheaded after that. I should be taking an afternoon nap - NOT running at that time of day, especially on a full belly. Blech.

ugh -- i know the feeling. i am a (first thing) morning runner 99% of the time, so any time i switch up my routine it makes me feel "off". nice job getting in the miles when you could.

Allie, I don't know how some people do it all the time. It really just made me sick and it took probably most of the drive home to feel 'normal' again. Next time I'll bite the bullet, get up early and take a NAP in the afternoon :)

I have only recently started doing a few pm runs and they are so much harder for me!! Good job getting your run in :)

I'm glad you could sleep in. I would have a very hard time running in the afternoon.

I love a good sweat fest in the spin room. Are you running the 4 mile stampede this weekend? http://fastrunningblog.com/stampede-2011.pdf

From RAD on Thu, Aug 11, 2011 at 15:53:09 from

Carina, it's SO weird how much harder they are!

Nancy, the sleep was totally worth it!

Merri, no...I've got a long run planned. I'm kind of bummed though. If I would've known earlier I would've planned it into the schedule. It's a good one!
