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!

Personal:

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.

Baby was up all night either screaming that his tummy hurt or barfing. So, mommy got no sleep. Daddy didn't get much either, but I did my best because I knew he needed to go to work and with a new job you have no sick/vacation time! Needless to say I didn't go anywhere other than home and just took a mommy day. He did finally get up around 9 and say his tummy felt better and drank water. I was a little pessimistic! But, he then slept until almost 3:00 that afternoon. I got the first 2 hours of sleep before the school called. Another child was having a horrible reaction to something from the park they walked to...good thing I took a mommy day, sounds like everyone needed one that day :)

I was enough hung over from my 'mommy day' that when the alarm went off to meet the Newtons I bailed. I needed sleep. Besides I was going to make up miles from Monday...which it actually turned out better this way. 

Met Becca, Luz, Karen and SMOOTH at the JRP to run 5-6 nice and easy miles. I brought Adam in a newly acquired jogging stroller (I only had a double!) because I was worried yesterday about leaving him with a sitter, so I found a jogger to use for this occasion. Hoping that the company around me would wait for me and my slowness while pushing!

They did and it was a wonderful morning! I seriously could do that every morning. That is why I run. It was perfect...simple perfection. Pushing the stroller wasn't too bad and I was impressed with it for the $30 I paid! Easy resell when I'm done.

AP: 9:30 splits: 10:00, 9:41, 9:28, 9:03, 9:47, 9:01.

I'm going to miss Smooth SO much! Then Becca is leaving too...who will run with me?!? who will put up with me?!? :(

Someone has caught stroller fever! Seriously... who knew I'd like jogging strollers so much?!? Not this girl. 

I again slept in (I think I'm having a lot of anxiety about waking up at 2:00 to get to UVM!), and made a nursery appointment for baby for 2 hours. An hour to run 6, an hour to bike. HA! Then, I put my thinking cap on.

I could've ridden with baby too, but I was selfish and wanted to read my book :) I like reading on the bike...true multi-task. So, I put baby in the stroller ran the 3 miles DOWN to the rec center (loverly paces!) then paid for only an hour for bike time then ran the 3 miles back UP to the house. I need a little heat/hill training for TOZ the end of this month. So, it is all in good practice. MUCH better than 6 dreadful miles on the TM! Plus, I got to stop on the way back home (the UP) and take care of little puppy that I'm dog sitting during the day this week...made the journey home not so overwhelming.

AP down: 8:07 splits: 8:12, 8:07, 8:00

45 min on the bike (it always takes a few to get on and off the bike, so with only an hour in daycare I usually get 45-50 on the bike)

AP up: 9:38 splits: 10:06, 9:29, 9:19...I finally got the hang of pushing that stroller! 30 pounds of kid and 15+ of stroller? yeah, I'll take that uphill :)

Newtons came to do the Shaggy Mtn loop, but with UVM Saturday and then HOMM the next weekend I decided I need to take this taper/recovery business a little seriously. So, I ran my 4+ mile loop after they left to meet them for their last couple miles. 

 

As I left my house I saw someone running by I thought I knew, so I gave chase! It took me longer than I thought it would to catch him, but I did and realized then it wasn't who I thought it was. Oh well, made for a nice speedy first mile. Then hit the uphill, oh I how I love that :( I need to realize in just over a week I'm going to have to run it in a marathon! Get over it Rachel.

I got to go about 1/2 mile up past Hi-country gate before I saw the Newtons. Chad and Nick were screaming down the course...which doesn't surprise me...and Curtis not far behind. I decided to see how long I could hang the downhill with them. I made it over a 1/2 mile @ 5:30-5:40 pace. Booyah! Now I just need to link 10 of those together on flat track and I'll be golden :) I stopped at the gate and waited for George so that I could take it a little easier on the way home. Didn't get much easier. He was carrying low 7's! Oh well, a little speed is always good for the legs! 

Got home and I wanted to even out miles to 6, but it never happened.

Becca came over later and we went for a hike and I threw Adam on my back. Five miles to the peak overlooking the valley. Beautiful! We finished in under 2 hours which for hiking and Adam on my back, I'm perfectly fine with.

A little Rumbi rounded out the afternoon...gotta carb-load, right?!?

It was nice to spend the day with Becca. Both she and Smooth leave within a week of each other. I need some frequent flier miles....

Good ol race except the porta potties all disappeared...

Best thing was seeing Becca and rachelle at the finish and hearing their exceptional finishes!

Had a great time running with Marci and riding there with Her, smooth and Becca.
