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

I just really want to enjoy running again!

 

 

Personal:

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