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.

Everything went GREAT with the tonsils. We went to the store to pick up some yogurt and gatorade and such and he wanted to push the little cart and was running up and down the aisles!!! You'd never have known he'd had surgery only 2 hours before! Crazy kids.

I on the other hand haven't gotten any running in. I am so ready to though! well, right after a nap...I did have to get up at 4 this morning! 

As a side note; had a VERY strange dream 2 nights ago: I was running a race, but couldn't get all my stuff on and ready to go before the gun went off. I was okay with being just a couple minutes off so I just hurried and tried to follow the pack (SMALL race). Then as I was running there was an ice cream truck playing a SLOW song and my cadence wouldn't go faster than the slow music. It was horrifying! I was pushing as hard as I could, but just couldn't make my legs go faster than just over walking pace. I'm still kind of bugged by it. I finally gave up and started climbing over the buildings and sneaking around....weird, I know. Anyway, the slow unmoving feet have been bugging me ever since - it was one of those 'feels real' dreams. I need to get out and run today, even if for just a couple to move my feet quickly again :)

I am glad that everything went well today. Sounds like David takes after his mom. Running around, even though he might be in pain. I hate how dreams can make you feel so icky. You better get running.

So glad the tonsilectomy went well and your little guy is happy. The temp is not too bad for a mid-day run. Just make sure to drink plenty. Have a good run! Those weird dreams are your sub-conscious mind dealing with stress/worry/fear; probably a good thing!

From cheryl on Thu, Aug 06, 2009 at 15:42:14 from

Yes, glad everything went ok. Our dreams are weird sometimes, I've had many dreams about not quite getting to a race on time. I think having those dreams help me get to races extra early.

From Kelli on Thu, Aug 06, 2009 at 18:40:41 from

I would have just stopped and had some ice cream in my dream!

Glad it went well, hope he is still feeling good!!!

I'm glad the surgery went well. Little kids bounce back so fast. My 2nd son had his appendix out when he was barely 5. He recovered much more quickly than the teenager who shared his hospital room and who had had the same surgery.

I think an ice cream truck on a race course is a great idea! As long as they could hand them out fast and you don't have to pay!

From RAD on Thu, Aug 06, 2009 at 22:34:28 from

Okay, I am WAY too occupied with how I couldn't run fast. I didn't even think about the ice cream IN the truck!! You guys crack me up...I'm way too serious.

David is still happy, but finally admitted that his throat hurt when he opens his mouth.

Dreams can be so wierd sometimes. I'm glad you son's surgery went well and that you got a nap.
