Short-Term Running Goals:

 I like the fresh air on my face as I step out the front door. I like the sound of my shoes taking their first strikes on the pavement. I like my ponytail whipping from side to side along my back as my pace increases. I like how clear my thoughts become with each passing mile. I like the sense of freedom that I feel in the stillness of the early morning. I like to run!

 

Long-Term Running Goals:

Running in 2017 did not go well. I finished the year defeated. I seriously questioned if I should even continue running recreationally. I ran a total of 2737.69 miles, but had nothing to show for it. I achieved 0 PR's. I qualified for Boston, but was one of the 5000 non-accepted qualifiers. Even my favorite brand of shoes left my feet calloused and sore.

I intend to start over in 2018 by running fewer miles, resting more, and following a new racing program that incorporates strength and mobility exercises. If you read my blog, feel free to look over my history. Any comments are welcome and greatly appreciated. I'd love to achieve the following this year:

	Finish a race with a PR

	Complete a half-marathon without hitting the wall at mile 11 or mile 12

	Complete my marathon without hitting the wall

	Complete my marathon under 4:10:00

 

Personal:

I am a first grade teacher. I have two grown children and two grandchildren. I truly enjoy everything about my life!

  • Now if I can just repeat this if I have to run a marathon in two weeks.
  • Here's hoping that my current Boston qualifying time is fast enough to make the 2018 cut!

  • I ran with my son this morning. I was scheduled to run 9 miles, but I failed to hear my alarm. I was running late. I was just happy to get a few miles in for the day.

  • Winding down before Saturday's race / Submit my Boston time tomorrow
  • If I make it into Boston, then I'll stay with the half. If my time is not fast enough, then I'll switch to the marathon.

  • By the time I finished the race, temperatures had spiked (86°). I could barely stay hydrated. Grateful that I brought along both water bottles to help with the later miles so that I wouldn't have to make stops.
  • Even though I won my age group, I took zero pleasure with that fact. Completing a half marathon in over 2 hours is beyond disappointing.
  • I have another half-marathon nect weekend. I'll hope for a better performance and cooler temperatures.

  • I lost my phone around mile 9 so I had to back track and search for it in the dark. My pace slowed because I was afraid that I would not find it.

  • Slow, steady pace to keep the legs loose for Saturday's half-marathon
  • Am also suffering from low right buttocks pain / Making sure that the pain does not worsen
