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.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU  to Kelli this morning!! I've been out of the morning run too long and knew I wouldn't get up and go if someone wasn't waiting for me, so I called Kelli last night and asked if I could tag along on her run. She was nice enough to let me slow her down this morning. I went to start my Garmin and the battery was dead - hmmm, that's the bad part about waiting until it's dead to charge it. No idea AP or splits, I'll have to wait until Kelli posts them; however, they were so slow she might not :) I had a great hill run, although my quads were very sore from all of yesterday's activities and I could feel it this morning!!

Went home, caught some sleep...overslept and ran to kick-boxing, but missed the first 1/2 of class. I probably should've just skipped it or done something else, but it's my favorite class - so I shoved my way in and tried my best to catch on. Stayed for Ab's then headed home (I drove this morning...too late to bike!) A nice morning and I honestly feel better since I got that nap, I may be able to function all day today now!

Now onto the 'injury': I could hardly feel my leg pain this morning, how does running 10 miles make it better? I don't know. Once we started running I could definitley feel it though! Walking and daily activities are better today, but running and some of kick-boxing was still making it ache.

Glad to hear you're able to run and work out with no pain. Are you doing the RHPC this Sat? Can't wait to see you.

AM I, AM I?? You betcha!! I'll be there with bells on. I have been looking forward to it since I first heard about it. Plus, I got my shirt yesterday and I LOVE it! So cute. YEE-HAW!!! :)

I am glad you like your shirt! :) Kelli did a bang up job!

glad to hear the leg is behaving :) Hang tough sister :) See you soon!

Great job Rachel. I hope your leg continues to cooperate.

Good to hear that you are feeling better. You have a lot more motivation than me lately. Question: What marathon are you training for? TOU? Let me know so I can kick myself into some kind of training program.

From Leandra on Wed, Jul 08, 2009 at 16:52:42 from

Nice miles today! It helps so much to have a running buddy, the BBK-ers need to move closer to me I think :)

what is the RHPC?
