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.

The weather is SO nice outside! No way was I going to miss this good weather again. So, I threw Adam in the jogger and set off to wander the streets. I needed a run. I needed a good pick up. I've been really struggling lately. I don't know why. I've been trying to figure it out, but can't put my finger on it.

It was SUCH a gorgeous day that when I noticed Adam fell asleep in the jogger (even after all these years he still love a good run with mom :) ) I just started adding on bits and pieces here and there exploring. I stayed on my basic 6 mile route, but ended up picking up just over an extra mile.

It was gorgeous and it helped me feel better...until I had to take the car into the shop and now I've got stupid money issues from a stupid car. At what point do I just trash it and buy a new one. Sigh. Sometimes I can figure out a problem and get to work on fixing it. Other times, it simply handicaps me and all I can do is sit and eat cookies. Lets just say I am certainly going on a LONG run tomorrow...

Such an absolutely splendid day!!! I'm almost glad that none of the Newtons could run in the morning, because I decided to run during pre-school. Best thing was that I had 2 free hours to just wander. I did end up taking a couple phone calls about the car, but it wasn't bad. I did our regular Tuesday 10, but starting from my house and with a few extra loops. Oh, how perfect it was! I didn't want it to end! Shorts and a tank top in November?!? You gotta be kidding! I'll take this weather year round. 

It wasn't particularly fast, but I had some 8:0X miles. Can't use my garmins AP, because I messed it up and started it while I was stretching on the lawn waiting for school to finish so my last mile said 24:xx yeah...not quite that slow :) I'd guess around an 8:40ish pace.

Well, I'm a sucker for a good running partner! Met at 5AM with Amy to do a 7 mile loop. I'm SO glad I was brave enough to stalk her and meet her :)

a nice little loop and finished in an 8:27 AP. Not too shabby! Another mild morning, I could get used to this.

on the way home I passed 2 cars and 12 runners!! There are a few people out here that run early in the morning :)

then, when I got home I had to wait, because a big truck was blocking my driveway. Well, they were also delivering my milk, but still kind of awkward :)

Twelve miles of downhill running with Amy. Started at the top of Rose Canyon then ran down in a snowstorm to Daybreak and around the lake. Craig picked us up and brought us home. It was a nice downhill run, but my watch didn't work :/ Amy said our pace was an 8:10...I'll take it!
