Running Year:

One list I have made for the year is a list of not the kind in your stockings, or the kind after you've eaten too much Taco Bell...the kind where you train and beat your body until you stand at the starting line with your heart pounding, legs shaking, and you feel like you're going to have a case of either the runs or like everything you ate in the last 48 hours will come bursting out of your mouth...alas, I digress.

So here are my running goals for the year:
March-St. Patricks 5k run
May-Bloomsday 12k
June-Missoula Half Marathon 13.1 miles
Sept/Oct.-Full Marathon 26.2 miles

So there it is. Quite the challenge to myself. I'm sure trips to the Chiropractor will be more frequent, and I should have many stories to share somewhere between here and the finish line. I am starting to run with a new gals running group tomorrow and did a 3 mile run 3 times this week already. And in the meantime, I'm doing a bunch of reading and research to help prepare myself. Anyone care to join the list?

That's so awesome! Good for you setting goals :) I just got back to running last week, but I'm having knee pain so I don't know how long that's going to last :( So sad. I was hoping to do a 1/2 this year, too. Can't wait to hear how your training goes!
