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.
Kickboxing class and quad/ITB exercises. No running today, trying to give it a day so I can keep good form with little pain tomorrow. I'm excited to have my sister here! I can't wait to get out on a run with her.

Blah about the shoes! I am mad, bring them in for an exchange, I don't know! They make me mad. Nice run, good speed, long distance. You are a POWERHOUSE, keep up the good work. I am trying to think of a place we can meet either before or after the race on Friday, I have to see you there!

Bec, I will call you and we'll meet up. I need you to pace me to a PR on the course! Take your cell phone that morning and we'll get together...or if you want I can give you directions to my house and you can drive up with my sister, her friend and I - it's always a party :) I'll bring them back...I just love them so much I really don't want to!

I'm glad your sister can visit. Is this the sister you ran the 1/2 marathon with at Myrtle Beach?
From RAD on Wed, Jul 22, 2009 at 21:00:22 from 184.108.40.206
Nancy, yes it's my sister from NC that I ran Myrtle Beach with. She may be coming to running group with me in the morning and we are doing the DesNews 10K together as well! :)

GOOD LUCK tomorrow. I won't be cheering you in. I will be there to congratulate you and your sister though. What's wrong with the new shoes? I'll check yesterday's blog.
