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.

Total Distance

Feeling better today and the hip flexor wasn't as loud as it was yesterday, so I slept in and went to the gym. Did the spin bike for 21 miles at 3 resistance in an hour then decided to try out a mile on the TM before I had to leave. The mile went well, and the hip flexor actually seemed to like it better than walking.

Glad to hear you're feeling better today. Did I hear that you're expecting? CONGRATULATIONS! and BEST WISHES!!!!

From RAD on Fri, Nov 13, 2009 at 15:01:25 from

Thanks! I just made a little update on my 'goals' and personal info. I wondered how long it would take for people to notice :)

From Smooth on Fri, Nov 13, 2009 at 15:11:00 from

People will notice if you change your avatar. That's an exciting update! If anyone can run thru pregnancy, you can!

From RAD on Fri, Nov 13, 2009 at 15:16:22 from

I thought I could, but these past couple days have been nasty, and I'm not even throwing up yet! :( Honestly, I think it's low energy and the vitamin I'm taking doesn't have iron in it...I think if I start taking a pre-natal the energy will return!

From Nancy on Fri, Nov 13, 2009 at 15:27:36 from

I'm sorry about the hip. It seems like just when we're getting in shape we get injured and knocked back down a few steps.

From Smooth on Fri, Nov 13, 2009 at 15:27:56 from

Yes, definitely take the prenatal vitamins. Fatigue was always my first sign of pregnancy. The energy comes back somewhere in the 2nd trimester. Meanwhile extra sleep and naps is in order. I wouldn't stress over not getting the miles in...listen to the bod. Nature has its way to ensure a healthy pregnancy.

Devine Miss M - congrads, lovely and special day.

Stay Kool, B of BS Rools out

From Carolyn in Colorado on Fri, Nov 13, 2009 at 16:53:16 from

Smooth has given you very good advice. You should follow it.

Don't pregnancy hormones kind of loosen up joints, such as hip flexors?

From Bec on Sat, Nov 14, 2009 at 14:57:05 from

Yeah, so I did notice your 'notation' to left of the blog. I didn't want to mention anything, but YAY!! That is way exciting news, and I KNOW that you will be faithful to running during pregnancy. Congrats my friend.

From RAD on Sat, Nov 14, 2009 at 15:34:36 from

Nancy, you're right! It seems like a perpetual cycle with running!

Smooth, I'm hoping to keep up the miles in the first so the ligaments are used to it in the second and I start to show.

Brent, thanks! :)

Carolyn, it does, but I guess I thought it was later in pregnancy.

Bec, now you know WHY I can't run the marathon next week. I was planning on it, but someone had other plans for me :) If you want a slow run...give me a call!!
