2011 did not go as “planned” in terms of running. I had hoped to hit 500 miles in the 7.5 months of running since Andrew was born, as I did in 2009 in the 7.5 months since Cora had been more. I was not even close. There are BIG gaps of no running – all are with “good reason” yet it still is discouraging. I haven’t even run a race since Andrew is born. That is sad to me. I so enjoy racing. It motivates me to train. I love competing against others. It’s just plan FUN to me.
Aiming high but trying to be somewhat realistic, my 2012 goals are …
run 1,000+ miles
break 1:30 in the half marathon
run a full marathon
consistent tempo and speed work
