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.

cortizone shot in the ITB yesterday...so nothing today. I would go to the gym and do yoga, but my knee is in terrible pain from it! Plus I was in a ton of pain last night (not just ITB) and couldn't really sleep...I'm tired and blechy and in pain. So, nothing today. Well, except cleaning my house for Friday. My husband would make me cancel the party if I even attempted to let anyone in my house while it looked like this!!! I've neglected the thing for quite some time now.

Remember, anyone and everyone is invited tomorrow (see yesterdays post)!

Sorry to hear about your ITB and the fun with that. I hope the shot will do your wonders. And sorry to hear about your father.

Be sure to take a break from the housework today and get some rest.

From The Quiet Pirate on Thu, Nov 19, 2009 at 15:21:43 from

Sorry your leg is sore from the shot. Housework stinks. But it does give you a good workout with all the bending and hauling.

Next year as a tribute to your mom, you should hire a cleaning team to come the day before your "Dad's party."

Rachel, that's a real bummer about the pain. Wish I could make it to your party. If I didn't live so far away and had more time, I definitely would come. Eat something for me, will ya?

From leslie peterson on Thu, Nov 19, 2009 at 16:01:05 from

Good luck, you have a lot on your plate. I hope tomorrow goes well and you are feeling better!

From RAD on Thu, Nov 19, 2009 at 16:02:24 from

Huans, thanks, the pain usually goes away in a day or two...it's just still fresh.

Carolyn, I wish I could!

QP- don't you worry for a second...the way I feel today I almost did call someone!! :)

Dale, you're welcome anytime...and YES there will be plenty of eating done!

From RAD on Thu, Nov 19, 2009 at 16:04:55 from

Leslie, thanks...I'll need it! However, today and tomorrow are good times to have too much on my plate!!

From Brent on Thu, Nov 19, 2009 at 16:43:41 from

Devine Miss M - ouch, shots, scary, hope healing goes well.

Stay Kool, B of BS Rools out

We missed you this morning! That shot does not sound fun. Hope you feel better very soon!

From Nancy on Thu, Nov 19, 2009 at 20:21:45 from

I'm sorry about the IT band. My husband had cortisone shots in both his knees on Tuesday. They felt better after a couple of days. Good luck with your party.
