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.

Oh the Expo...the Boston Expo! I spent way too much money, but I was just in love with a lot of the Adidas clothes. Such an incredible experience. Saw Beth and Rossy at the booth and got to sign many things and be apart of picture collages and meet Katherine Switzer...oh heavens. SO much!!!

Oh, I almost forgot!! We went to the 2013 memorial display in the library before hand and it was incredible. So many tears and as I walked past the finish line for the first time I couldn't hold back the tears. SO many emotions. I'm not sure I could even describe them all. 

After the library we went to the Old South church. Kelli had told me about the scarf project and I needed one. I didn't just want it, I knew I needed it! I went straight there and asked for one. There were many volunteers handing them out. I was in tears and thanked them for their sacrifice and told them how much it meant to me to be apart of the love and comfort they were spreading. My scarf had a tag telling me the name and residence of the maker. It was a Bostonian! Someone that attends Old South Church. Oh man! I was beside myself. Later Susie and TJ told me that there were cameras recording my reaction and speaking to the people, but I didn't really notice them. It was very important to me to be wrapped in the love and courage that so many had sent from afar. 

Lunch at the mall after getting our packets, more expo and then a stop at the grocery store to grab a few supplies before heading back to the hotel. A late dinner and then we made a late night trip to the Airport to get Bret. It was SO cold!!  I looked silly in my capris and and beanie and sweatshirt. Lots of laughs as we got abandonded by the buses at the pick up area and then no one would stop for the crazy dressed lady! Then we finally got on a bus and Lowell couldn't tell that the lady chatting with us was a lady...oh dear, it was much too funny to bear!! This kept us up (and the excitement of getting Bret) until 2-3AM. 

Needless to say, I didn't get to the morning shake out run Saturday with Bart Yasso like I'd wanted :/ oh well, sleep was more important.
