So I Am a Little Late

One of my pet peeves is being late.

I am always late.

It is not a good combination.

14 days into 2013 and I am ready to list my running goals for the year out there for all the interwebs to see.

It's not rocket science, but it is helpful to write them down so I can keep reminding myself that I have the goals that I want to achieve.

I am now in my 3rd week of training for the Tobacco Road half marathon and I think I am off to a good start. I have been trying to add a fourth day of running to my usual 3. With that and some weight training I am slowly starting to see some improvement.  This past weekend my long run was a 6 miler on a local bike path. As a runner who is consistently within the 11 min/mile range I was psyched to see these splits.

These are some speedy miles from me. Although I think having to stop at some intersections was partly responsible, I know that I was running pretty well and feeling good. It is nice to see some progress in the numbers.

I am hoping that, by sticking to my goals and training hard and smart, I might see something less than 2:34 on the clock when I cross the finish line in March.


  1. You'll rock your goals this year! Awesome 6-mile run! I'd love to see a half marathon PR, too. I definitely need to be better about weight training ... you're inspiring me to do that. Thanks!

    1. Thanks Jina. I haven't been doing crazy amounts of weight training, but I am fitting it in when I can. So far it looks like Tuesday mornings are a good time for me to get to the gym to run and work on my legs. I try to do upper body/core at home when I can.

  2. Great job on your run! You can definitely PR at that pace :)
