2013 Running Goals
1. First and foremost 26.2 under 4 hours--enough said
-Toeing the line on Sunday, September 15, 2013 in Erie, PA
2. Achieve a second sub 1:50 so I can remove the asterick from my current sub 1:50 PR
-I attempted to achieve this at the Indy Mini Marathon but my calf had other plans for me. I did run the CLE 1/2 marathon two weeks later but I ran it strictly as a training run so there was no chance of PR'ing there and that is okay because I was running the race with my September marathon goal in mind.

2013 Mini Running Challenges
1. Run 100 miles per month
-133.7 miles run in May. There's a lot to be said for marathon training and hitting monthly mileage goals. I would have had a total of 146.7 miles but I sacrificed a 6 mile Saturday run during week 2 of training for my daughter's figure skating competition and I had to sacrifice my 7 mile easy run yesterday due to stomach bug my son shared with me.
2. Run 1300 miles for the year
-829.74 miles to go to complete this challenge.
2013 Non-Running Mini Challenges
1. Cross-train at least twice a week
-I failed big time at this one. I didn't do a single ounce of cross-training as I am back into the throws of marathon training. I need to fix this one because I know it makes me a stronger runner.
2. Complete a jump rope workout every day
-Not a single jump rope workout completed. This seems to be a trend...
3. Drink 50 ounces of water per day (based on my current weight, this is my daily water intake need)
-I'm good with this one for the most part, except for trying to rehydrate myself after the evil stomach bug.
4. Take my vitamins daily
-Vitamin taken every single day in May.
5. Continue to choose and cook healthier foods
-7 meals made in May. I need to do better with this.
6. Learn to swim...better luck this year
-Once again, second verse same as the first. We all know this one is a thorn in my side. I have done extensive research in regards to swim lessons. I just need to figure out what will fit my schedule and make the commitment.
I am very happy with my running for May. I just need to fix the lack of cross-training and I will be good to go.
Keep running, you're simply the best, and you inspire me!!
