2011 Reflection & 2012 Goals

1285 Miles
2 Marathons
1/2 Marathon Race
6 - 5k's

I worked so hard on pace- I dropped my average running from 10:30 Miles down to 8:20 miles on average for the end of the year- This alone is Incredible to me- what an amazing progression. Dropping my First Marathon time from 4:50 down to 4:23 over the course of just 6 months. Dropping my 27min 5k down to 23:50!

So needless to say- Running has showed me it loves me back ♥ I have a Million things to say about Running and how it has changed me- I'll save that for my two year Run-Versary on January 17th !!


I have so Many Running,Fitness & Food Goals for 2012 and here is what they are:


• Recovery- Work on Recovery with better/more stretching- this will aide me in staying Injury Free

• Run a sub 22 minute 5k

• Run a sub 1:50 1/2 Marathon

• Run my First Ultra 50k- I want to run my First Ultra- I want to focus not at all on speed- but on a slow and fun run- I want to conquer the distance- I wanted it last year and didn't get it- I am this year! I just know It!

•I started a Local Running Club for our City- We do our First Official Group Run of 2012 on New Years Day as a Resolution Run- I have Great Plans for our Community. We will be offering Weekly Runs working on Hill & sprint repeats and long runs. I will be hosting a couch to 5k program for the community in the Spring of 2012 and get more people running to support Great Health & Fitness.
