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.

for the past two nights, it has rained--poured-- at the tail end of my runs.....we have had tornado warnings, winds, rain, it has been incredible!  It feels like I live in Kansas.   I kind of like this weather- I feel as strong and powerful as the storms when I am running  in this crazy weather.   

Hope you all are doing well...  Almost 11pm  - well past my bedtime.    Sleep well, runners!

We're not in Kansas anymore! :)

I feel the same way about the weather, one thing is to run when it's nice out, but when you're running in a crazy storm, soaking wet, you feel so tough, with cars and people looking at you like you're insane. A great feeling, ha! Now be ready for some heat this weekend!
