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.

Biking. 75 min on the trainer. I honestly like using my bike on the trainer more than a spin bike! Except that you can't adjust the tension while you ride.

Sore, but not horrible. Not as bad as it was previous years for sure! But, still not passing the stairs test.

Took Adam out in the jogger. Just a nice easy stroll and NO garmin. I don't even want to see how slowly I'm moving, especially with the jogger :) Time tested 5 mile loop. Just enjoyed it.

Shaggy Mountain Loop with the Newtons. George and I were running/walking nice and slowly together :) Legs still tell me they aren't 100% on the downhills and uphills are just slow and feels like I have lead legs.

Probably one of the slowest time I've run this loop, but moving at this point is happiness!

Ran to the bank...literally.

My son was invited to a rock climbing activity with a friend and needed $20...I needed some miles this morning, so I decided to make the most of it! Ran to the bank, used the ATM and then wandered on some trails I'd been wanting to explore on the way home. Was only a block away when my daughter was driving down the street with carpool for school. Perfect timing.

Since my nephew was staying with me and he had XC state meet on Wednesday, I didn't want to do anything too heavy...and I didn't want to go long :) So, I settled on the Shaggy Mountain Loop. It was perfect and he seemed to enjoy it as well. A good XC training course!

It was faster than I'd run since last Saturday and I felt okay, so I wasn't going to complain.

AP: 8:49 splits: 9:28, 9:57, 10:09, 9:16, 8:16, 8:41, 7:18, 7:40, 7:14 (last.15)

When we got home I decided he had to earn his room and board for the weekend and help me dig a hole. We've had a foundation issue since the home was built, but the builders wouldn't do anything about it (don't get me started) and since it was a good weather weekend and I hadn't run like crazy, I figured it was a good of a time as any!

The hole ended up 6 feet deep...and maybe 2 feet wide. We didn't plan well, but it all worked out. We did have to have my son do some of the last of the digging with a trowel, because you just don't have any leverage to use a shovel anymore. I decided it was a good babysitting hole. Stick your kids in there and you can leave them. They're happy with the mud and dirt and they're not going anywhere! :)

We were both muddy and tired after a good few hours of shoveling. A quick trip to Lowe's to get sealant and tar paint (another fun story of me covered in tar a few days later), dinner and then finally home to crash for the rest of the day. It really was a fun day full of good memories!

Me in the hole about 6 inches before the finished product. Yes, I'm standing up!
