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

I don't know whats wrong with me. I couldn't get up this morning for BBK's - I regret it now, well, kind of :)

I went to the total body class at the gym and I could barely push myself - light headed, feeling shaky, eyes want to close and not focus. I kind of wonder if I'm getting sick or something, I'm just not sure, because I usually do this class just fine AFTER 10 miles with BBK's.

Anyway, then to fill up my last bit of time in the nursery I did 5 miles on the bike to chat with Kelli. Still feeling sleepy/light headed - I'll try a nap and we'll go from there. I'm hoping to get a good 8 in tomorrow morning.

Blah! What is this? You can not get sick now....We are in the DEEP end of training! I have to run with you on Saturday! Go to bed and feel better.

From Carolyn in Colorado on Tue, Aug 18, 2009 at 14:52:24 from

I know what's wrong with you. You slept on the ground in Wyoming for four nights.

From RAD on Tue, Aug 18, 2009 at 14:56:57 from

Carolyn, I sure hope your right!!! I'm hoping to get back at it soon...I'd better anyway with finally signing up for some races!!

Bec, I will run with you on Sat - I'd like to try and see where I'm at after 13-15 miles then see if I can pick it up or not.

From Burt on Tue, Aug 18, 2009 at 14:59:13 from

Maybe a little dehydration?

From RAD on Tue, Aug 18, 2009 at 15:20:21 from

Burt, I've wondered about that...I feel like I'm getting enough, but it could be residual from this last week? I guess I ought to drink more and try it.

From Peggy on Tue, Aug 18, 2009 at 19:39:46 from

Sorry you didn't make it this morning. Is the "PC" you're referring to the Park City Marathon?

From Bec on Tue, Aug 18, 2009 at 20:00:37 from

That sounds like a SOLID plan. I am going to jump from mile 14 to 18 on the course, that is if they don't think I am cheating.

From RAD on Tue, Aug 18, 2009 at 22:21:15 from

Peggy, Yes, I'm doing PC for a fellow blogger - in their name as a 'training run'

Bec, If you go from 14-18 then I can't run the end with you. However, I'm sure you'd be so far ahead it wouldn't matter anyway :)

From LuzyLew on Wed, Aug 19, 2009 at 12:36:45 from

Two days in a row of extra blah and sleepy? Um. I think you are pregnant.

From Burt on Wed, Aug 19, 2009 at 12:51:57 from

Yes Luzy! How did Dr. Burt not think of that?

From RAD on Wed, Aug 19, 2009 at 13:39:37 from

whoa, whoa, whoa....I've missed too much! However, I haven't been missing anything 'important' enough to be pregnant! Thanks for the idea though :)
