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.

Thanks a million to Kelli for running with me early this morning so I could get a good workout in before a long day of sitting for training. I think our AP was 9:07 (too lazy to go get the garmin to check for sure). Which is great, because our worst split was 10:16 and that is on the 'wicked hill' course!! Had a great run and am ready now to go to bed early then wake up early for the BBK wicked hill course tomorrow :)

Great run! You are SO speedy!

From Maurine/Tarzan on Mon, Apr 06, 2009 at 22:01:27 from

Wow - those are some great times.

Do you have any plans for Ogden? You can hang with me in the plodding section - but it would probably bore you to death.

From RAD on Mon, Apr 06, 2009 at 22:07:25 from

No plans for Ogden - since it'll be my first full, I just want to survive. I'm trying not to put a time in my mind to stress me out! My only goal is to not die, and be able to walk afterward :) My 20 miler I AP at 9:07, so I think I'll be able to keep something like that, but again I don't want the stress of a time so plodding sounds great to me!!

From Maurine/Tarzan on Mon, Apr 06, 2009 at 22:10:46 from

LOL - I can only dream (for now) of a 9:07 AP. I'm hoping (if my knee cooperates) to break 5 hours for the first time.

From RAD on Mon, Apr 06, 2009 at 22:24:54 from

Okay, I guess with the BBK's most run like 7:30-8:00 mm marathons (or less), so I feel like 9:00 is slow, because they all kick my trash!!! However, like I said...I'm not putting a time on it. Who knows, you might have to pick me up and drag me when you pass me at mile 21 :)

From Smooth on Mon, Apr 06, 2009 at 22:32:33 from

AWESOME run with Kelli and nice pace. What training are you sitting thru? Sitting is the worse for runners. Those BBK runs really push ya. And you are up to it too. Sounds to me you can run 9:00 min flat on a good day; that equals to a sub-4 marathon. That will be so SWEET for your first marathon!!!
