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.

walking on the heel today. not 100% pain free, but I can walk on it which feels amazing to not have to hobble around. I hope this bodes well for continued quick improvement. As of right now I am planning on doing the swim and bike of Spudman tomorrow competitively and then walking the 10K as per Dr's orders. I have a friend coming up to watch and cheer me on, so she said she would walk with me. This will keep my brain from convincing my legs they should run. It will be a fun race regardless of the fact that I've been dreaming of having a spud to add to my collection for months now. poo. oh well. Bigger fish to fry down the road and I don't want to mess things up even more. I will be a good patient.

I ran/walked the Spectrum 10k with my daughter--it was very painful. remember me hobbling at the starting line?? I never felt worse in my life--- the steroid shot the day before made it worse so do not get the shot!! feel for you. Walk it for sure!! have fun!! try not to cry, I was so disappointed in my body. chin up.
