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

Urban Trail Loop with the Herriman Highlanders (Chad, George, Paul (no Ringo), Ronnie, Christine and Charles dropped in). Nice chatty run and felt good and easy. I figured I'd probably be up around a 9mm. I really don't know how I'm running so fast (for me) and not feeling it. 

AP: 8:39 splits: 9:10, 9:02, 8:37, 8:15, 8:51(this is where the trail starts and I never stop my watch as maneuver around fences and such, so it kind of surprises me it was slow...but I don't think it was all running slow), 8:36, 8:29, 8:12. Nice progressive finish.

Now I've got baby's 2 year well child check. Man, I can't believe it has been two years since I had him! Time flies. I guess I've still got a week to make it officially two years, but still.

I do have an appointment to meet bye-wing at the newly opened reservoir for a swim in my new wet suit at noon!! yipee!! let's hope it fits.

Sounds like the perfect run! Have fun swimming. :)

The pain of my conversation is distracting you from your running pain. BTW those cookies were delicious.

And for the record you are the only one from Herriman (just sayin).

Rachelle, the swim was SO fun! I might have to do it again :)

Chad, hmmm...I guess I am the only one from Herriman. Crap. Well, too bad. The name is out there and now it is stuck - no one will be able to get it out of the heads :) I was actually noticing once that I was talking and not breathing too hard. It was after our last break so sometime in the last 1.2 miles which was an 8:11 average. Maybe your speed is rubbing off! Or your words are powerful enough to motivate me to keep up with you :)

Great job on run today and workouts throughout the week. Sounds like a really fun group! Face it girl, you are getting faster and it's well deserved. :)

Not gonna lie, those 2 years have flown by! It's almost so crazy. Happy Birthday Adam!

Sounds like a perfect busy summer day, good work!! Why do kids have to grow so fast!!!

From Nancy on Fri, Jun 15, 2012 at 17:48:25 from

So where is this new reservoir? Nice run.

Your speed is the natural result of all your hard work! Enjoy it :-)

Hope you didn't freeze your little hind end off in that water.
