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.

Kelli and I drove up to Park City and met Smooth for a nice little tour of the marathon course. We did miles 11-20 then looped back the short way to the car. 

Some runs are hard workouts, some runs tax your body, some runs are quality time in your shoes, some runs remind you why you run. Today, I remembered why I run and how much I LOVE being with these lovely ladies! I could've spent all day out there...okay, maybe at breakfast in the AC and with endless french toast coming my way, but still :) 

I'd forgotten what an uphill drag that course is. I guess I'm just always having so much fun with Smooth I just don't notice. I can't wait for it again this year! Just a ton of FUN! I seriously have no agenda for that race, but a good time with Smooth - and it never disappoints.

We got into some heat the last 5ish miles, but my fatigue may have been due more to the workout yesterday and lack of water and fuel than actual heat. Either way, a short stop at a convenience store solved all the problems (Gu shot too!). We just had a wonderful lovely run and I can't wait to do it again!!

Thanks Smooth and Kelli for a wonderful morning, I loved it!!

Sounds like a fun run. Running with friends always makes running funner.

From Bec on Sun, Jul 22, 2012 at 12:08:04 from

Sounds wonderful! French toast at Kneaders? I went there yesterday for breakfast too. Glad you had a great run with those two fantastic ladies. I am jealous I won't be around for PC, it's one of my favorites too. :)
