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.

Got my butt kicked again in Kick-boxing! However, I LOVE the cross training - more side to side and muscle work than just forward movement like running and cycling does!

Hit the TM for 4.5 afterward, wanted to do downhill fast running to see if I could push my ITB and not feel it. Seemed to work, no pain during or after! Also read the article in April's RW about 'quality over quantity' so since I'm not going to get my 60 in this week like I wanted, I really wanted the miles to be good ones!! Did the miles at 7:40 mm or faster (sprinted at 6:30 for the last minute!!)

Went home, got to babysit a cute little 1 yr old so I threw the kids in the jogging stroller and thought I get a few more in and then take them to the park...YIKES!!! I forgot what it was like to run with the jogging stroller. stopped after 500 feet on the uphill :) Did get one more mile in - AP 10:17, hehehe. It doesn't help that my stroller pulls more to the right than ever!! It practically does a U-turn every 20 feet, it takes WAY too much effort to adjust the stroller AND run! Any good suggestions of places that could do a 'tune up' on the double jogging stroller for me?

Love the beautiful weather and wish it would stay like this for another 10 months or so :) -I'll take 2 months of monsoon season to get all the moisture we need, and fit in a little ski season!

I wouldn't know how to operate a running stroller, sounds complicated! Enjoy this weather and I am with you, lets order 10 months worth!

Devine Miss M - don't fight the stroller, running in circles is good?

Save something for that long run this weekend.

Stay Kool, B of BS Rools out

I might just show up on Saturday. Marion and I were going to go together but she has to get it done on Friday. So I may just show up. I'll let you know by Friday. I've got to pull of 18 this week.
