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.

Okay, I'm really ornery this morning! The stinky alarm clock fairy must have visited our house last night and turned off BOTH alarm clocks. I woke up at 6:30 and realized I missed group, I guess I should've gotten out on my own, but I was mad so I went back to bed. Then my husband woke me up at 8:50! His alarm clock didn't go off either!!! How does that work? DANG!! Now it's hot and I'm not getting any miles in :(

Get to the TM to get a few in RAD!!! You will make it a good day somehow, I know you will.

From Burt on Tue, Jul 28, 2009 at 12:33:46 from

Be a wimp and take the day off like me. Misery loves company.

From Leandra on Tue, Jul 28, 2009 at 13:08:58 from

OH! I HATE when you're planning on running and then it doesn't work out! It's really frustrating because it's not like you chose not to go, you're alarm just didn't cooperate! But a rest is good, or maybe you can go tonight. I'll be going tonight because unfortunately I missed my oppurtunity today and not by my choice either.

From Nancy on Tue, Jul 28, 2009 at 15:46:29 from

You really missed and exciting workout. We went around and around the track. I had to walk most of the time because my foot started hurting the first time around. I hope the extra sleep helped.

From Smooth on Tue, Jul 28, 2009 at 17:00:13 from

I'm with Bec. You can always hit the TM so all is not lost. But then again, a rest day will do you good.

"Mama said there'd be days like this, there'd be days like this my Mama said."

From Burt on Tue, Jul 28, 2009 at 17:22:39 from

And then she said someone will look at me, like I'm looking at you - one day, and then I might find, I don't want it any old way, but I don't worry cause...

I can't believe I'm old enough to know that song. No offense.

From Carolyn in Colorado on Wed, Jul 29, 2009 at 00:00:21 from

Well, dang it! Maybe the alarm clock fairies thought you needed the rest.

From RAD on Wed, Jul 29, 2009 at 12:46:47 from

Thanks all! It did all end up okay, I essentially took the day off. I didn't have time for TM - had to get up to Lagoon. So, I spent the day walking around Lagoon and enjoying the smiles of my children as they got to play all day.

Oh and Burt, I know that song too and I'M not old! :)

From Burt on Wed, Jul 29, 2009 at 13:19:05 from

Whatever Rachel. You're almost 30. 30!! And that song is 48 years old. So, yeah that's older than me. I'll let you off the hook this time.
