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.

Nice run with the BBK's - funny, I can't say THAT often! I skipped early miles trying to 'taper' a little for PCM. We ran up to Glenmoor and back to 2200W. I was so impressed with myself that I was feeling good hanging on with the lead group, it usually takes a ton of effort. Gave me a confidence boost for Sat....then we finished and I looked at splits - lol!!! I wasn't keeping up with them, they were keeping up with me, (9:21, 9:12, 9:00, 8:27, 8:24, 8:17) The first 3 were the uphill part. I couldn't believe it, no wonder I felt so good...there goes my confidence boost! So, either way it was a great run (AP: 8:47) with great friends and I'm glad I got up and got the miles in...now I can not run tomorrow and just do the bike or something easy in preperation for PCM!!!

Went to the gym to do yoga - it's been WAY too long! I really enjoyed it and can't wait for next week, no more missing yoga!

LOL! This workout makes me laugh a little. I am sure they were pushing it just a little. I am a little sad I missed workout this morning, but then again, sleep was WAY more important. I am going to head up to PC tomorrow, are you? I got Smooth's e-mail, and that sounds like SO SO SO much fun!

Was your friend's name kelly Allred that taught at JFK? If so, I have heard so much about her.

I think it's better that you didn't run too fast today since you should be tapering a little.

PS: good luck at PC this weekend. you are READY!

Devine, good luck at Park City Half, tough marathon. It will be interesting to read your race report, give us all the details. Also, you get another medallion, yeh. Gotta love those medallions. I have a love and hate relationship with PC, ran it as a training run two weeks before Grandma's marathon, ran a 3:35 with alot of gas left in the tank. Grandma's turned out to be hell, 95 degrees and humind, hottest day ever for the race, ran a 3:24 when I was in much better shape. You never know, should have went for it at PC. The point, if you have it at PC, are you going to give it a shot at a PR?

Stay Kool, B of BS Rools out
