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.

Total Distance

This is the longest I think I've gone without blogging runs/x-training! Was on pioneer trek with the youth from our stake since Wednesday morning. Lots of walking miles in my new trail runners, but no running miles. I think we did about 23 miles of walking over 4 days. It was an amazing opportunity! Made some good friends and even better memories. Oh, what it is like to be a teenager...with complete disregard to authority and a lack of respect for anyone other than your best friend. Glad I've grown up a little :)

It sounds like you had a good time and got plenty of exercise.

From Smooth on Sun, Aug 16, 2009 at 10:43:09 from

Hey Ma RAD! Glad you survived the teenagers. You probably had more stamina and energy walking 10Ks and pulling handcarts every day than these dis-respectful youngsters. WELCOME HOME!

From Carolyn in Colorado on Sun, Aug 16, 2009 at 14:33:20 from

I'm anxious to hear more details about your trek! I'm glad you made it home safely. I'll bet you're way stronger (in many ways) than those teenagers you were with.

Devine Miss M in a pioneer dress and trail running shoes? Did you get lots of pictures?

Stay Kool, B of BS Rools out

You forget, teenagers know everything, dumb parents anyway.

Tell me about it, I have one at my house you can borrow to keep your memories alive!!!

Glad you are back.

From Bec on Sun, Aug 16, 2009 at 17:43:44 from

I am glad you are back, and in one piece. You make me so excited to start teaching Jr. High next week...

I am still thinking about the workouts I have planned for this coming week. 10 on the JRP on Monday? I don't know. Did you get into PC? I am still planning to bandit 22 miles of that.

Oh the trek, we did that when I was in HS. It's quite the experience, but I think I'm okay if I never do it again :)
