2013 Goals.

I think setting my goals for 2012 seriously helped me stay focused, so I decided to do it again for 2013. I also want to do a monthly re-cap of how I am doing with these goals, just to keep me in check! Here are my goals for 2013:

  • Run/swim/bike a combined total of 1500 miles.
  • Run 3 half marathons this Spring.
  • Complete 3 tri’s this summer.
  • Don’t die during the Ragnar Relay.
  • Run a sub 2:15 half marathon.
  • Cook dinner every night for an entire week.
  • Grow an herb garden and use it!
  • Balance between my goals, John’s goals, and what’s good for the girls. Reaching goals take sacrifice for all parties, and it’s very easy to become selfish with what you want, and not what’s best for the family.
  • Take the girls on a weekend trip.. somewhere fun but within driving distance.
  • Be able to do the splits.
  • Continue with cross training and weight training.
  • Clean up my eating… being more mindful of what I am putting into my body.
  • Go to a Pro Football Game.


What are your goals for 2013? Should I add anything to my list?

Happy New Year, Y’all!!

Training Tuesdays

*Let’s take a moment to remember those who lost their lives 11 years ago today. We should all say a special prayer for those families.*

Well, I’m not really training for anything at the moment, but since training never really stops…

I want to continue my swimming and biking and running, but marathon season is upon us, once again.

I will most likely be racing the Mercedes Half Marathon in February, so I need to get my mileage back up before my training plan is set to start.

I am serious about the sub 2:15 half… we are making it happen is 2013.

I did want to share that J went to the pool with me before my Tri and I had him watch my stroke and tell me what I can improve on. Hopefully it will help one or some of you…

Trust me, if I can swim like this, then anyone can.

I was swimming 50 yards in about 53 seconds and J gave me the goal of 45 seconds… this is me making it happen in 43 seconds. Too bad he stopped the video before I shrieked in the pool over the time.

I have a decision to make. Since my Garmin 405 crapped out, I can pay $70 to get it fixed or the new Garmin Forerunner 10 for about $140.

I have a hard time working the 405. I don’t use it to it’s abilities and the bezel and I don’t get along very well.

The downside to the 10 is that it will only show total distance and time on one screen and you have to click over to see average pace– which is a runner’s best friend.

The plus side is.. it comes in pink. 

Help me decide what to do!!

What are you training for?

Do you have any upcoming races?

Fun at the Lake

After the midnight run..which I haven’t blogged about.. slacker. 
It was awesome- I wanted a sub 30 min 5K- didn’t happen but I shaved 2 minutes off my PR with a 30:25. So I am pretty pleased with that. Running at midnight = awesome. Except for being tired and then needing to run 4 more miles to make for 7.. which did NOT happen. My legs wanted to unattach themselves from my body and run away. 
Moving on.. Saturday we went to the lake with Rebecca, Robbie, Taylor, and MammaBo and Bobby. The girls had a blast and it was a fantastic time. Lots of laughing, swimming and FOOD. Seriously some delicious food!! 
Robbie was kind enough to send me all his pictures from the trip.. since I haven’t even unloaded my memory card onto my computer.. Yikes. Slacker again. 
Not sure where she gets this…
Claire enjoys jumping off the diving board 

Sweet baby.. such a little fish! 

Someone is being Superman

He enjoyed Robbie as paparazzi 

I swear.. this next one- John was trying to help her- she tried to jump out but her legs got stuck. This better not end up on Fail Blog.

Parenting FAIL. 

Umm Ok. 

Hey look! I made a picture!
What? You mean, you DON’T get your swim cap and goggles out and throw up gang signs?? How are we internet friends??
