New Year…New Races…New Goals

New Year…New Races…New Goals must mean that it’s January!

I’ve been very lucky over the last few years to accomplish things I NEVER would have thought possible. It all started with 13.1 miles at Disney and a medal that looked like a crown. I never thought I’d make the friends I’ve made or been to the place that started it all in Greece. 2016 was an amazing year for me!

So what will 2017 bring? 2017 will bring the Chicago Marathon in October with several of my real friends that I’ve met through social media! Kristin will be running with me again in Chicago and Dani will be there too! Those are 2 that I’ve been lucky enough to meet in real life! There will also be many people who I know on social media but have yet to meet in real life and I can’t wait to meet them!

2017 will also bring another marathon yet to be announced. πŸ™‚ I promise it will be a good one!

2017 will bring many training runs with my friends here in Virginia. And man, I’ve missed that over these last 8 weeks that I’ve been “lazy” as my foot has been healing from a stress fracture.

2017 will bring a half marathon in Roanoke, Virginia in April. I can’t wait to travel for that one!

2017 will be a challenge. 2017 will bring new friends. 2017 will be amazing! And most importantly, 2017 will be an ADVENTURE!!!

February Goals Check In

Hello!

I can’t believe that it’s already the last day of the month! How incredible and it seems like February just started. February was a busy month for me and so therefore the running took a back seat. So March will be for getting back on track and starting to work out again. I only completed 47.4 miles this month. Β BOOO!! But yes 47 is better than 0. And 70.52 for 2015 all together! Far from the 1000 that I would like by December 31, 2015.

SO….because of that, and because of March means spring, I’m going to do the 100 mile challenge for March. That averages out to 3.22 miles per day. I have 2 half marathons this month (yes I have a plan for those that I’ll share next week) and some long runs leading up to the 2 halfs, that are 8 days apart. Β I even got my outfit put together (I’ll share that too) and it’s probably the first time that I’ve planned an outfit this far out. I’m super excited about it. And yes more sparkle included.

I hope you were able to reach your goals for February, and if not, that’s ok too. Lets hit 100 miles together in March! Who’s with me??
