Short-Term Running Goals:

In the next 6 months I would like to feel fitter, look fitter, run faster, and not feel like an elephant plodding along. I would like to improve my 5K times, and run a marathon in October. Goal for the marathon is 4:30. Not sure if this is possible....

Long-Term Running Goals:

Let's just get through the summer, then we can talk about long term running goals!

Personal:

Trying to get in shape through running. Not sure I enjoy it -- I feel it too much, I am too loud running.. it is not graceful. Not pretty. I have had some euphoric moments running, like when listening to Bon Jovi (I know...I know) or Tina Turner (you're simply the best!!) but these moments are not that often. I love how I feel after accomplishing a run.

I love the treadmill.... Love my ipod... blink 182 (are you feelin' this..) and a whole mish mash of other tunes that get me moving. I want to be better, faster, more graceful... and more accountable- therefore I am here.

4 quick miles on the treadmill, (my first love!)

Doing a 10k on Sunday and then need to put in 3 miles following to stick with my schedule.  I am hopeful that I will get a good enough time to move up pace groups!  Will let you know how that goes!

Good luck on the 10K. I was just reading your personal section about running being good sometimes. I have a quote that I love that talks about life being like a train ride. Most of it is bumpy and boring but every once in awhile you look out the window and experience a beautiful vista or lovely sunset. (I didn't quote it exactly). But basically I guess running and everything is like that. A lot of work with some wonderful paybacks now and then. Hope you enjoy the race.
