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.

Well, I'm a sucker for a good running partner! Met at 5AM with Amy to do a 7 mile loop. I'm SO glad I was brave enough to stalk her and meet her :)

a nice little loop and finished in an 8:27 AP. Not too shabby! Another mild morning, I could get used to this.

on the way home I passed 2 cars and 12 runners!! There are a few people out here that run early in the morning :)

then, when I got home I had to wait, because a big truck was blocking my driveway. Well, they were also delivering my milk, but still kind of awkward :)

Oh my gosh, you're blogging again. Let's hit up View B one of these days.

I'm so glad your back to logging your miles my dear. I have missed stalking you!

Nice run this morning my friend.

I know! I'm actually trying to keep up and not be a slacker. A whole month at once was just too much! :)

Scott, you're on! I'd be in nearly anytime. Just say when! I've actually been thinking I may have to destroy my legs on lake Mtn again before the snow comes!

Rachelle, I missed my blogging family too :)

From Scott Wesemann on Wed, Nov 13, 2013 at 15:36:57 from

How about Lake Mt. a day next week? Sounds fun. We should get an FRB group together.

From Toby on Sat, Nov 16, 2013 at 18:33:48 from

Yeah for an early morning run WITH a buddy! Double points :)

From Nancy on Fri, Nov 22, 2013 at 06:03:31 from

So is the delivery truck blocking you from getting online and blogging too?

Hope you're staying warm! Keep running and inspiring people :-)
