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.
nothing...absolutely nothing! I'm helping my cousin finish up stuff to move my Aunt today and then seeing them off at the airport. Swim lessons, birthday party, work and off to PC. It was GREAT to sleep in this morning :)
Night Sleep Time: 8.00
Nap Time: 0.00

I thought you were doing PC as a training run, but now that you're all tapered and rested for it I expect to see you go all out tomorrow!
(Run well and have fun.)

lol! I think I'm just using it as an excuse to taper :) I'm going to run the first 1/2 with Smooth, then we'll see where my legs are at - if I want to push it some more or not. I'm honestly a little worried about the miles so I'm hoping a 'taper' will help me get through the miles - fast or not!

Very excited about PC...especially crashing with friends :) I'm still a little apprehensive about the mileage, but do or die...right? :)
