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.

Ran OUTSIDE tonight!!!!!!!!  

Ran with my brother Jason tonight outside.  I got a great promotion today at work- to Vice President- and I think I was still on a high when my brother asked me to go out for a drink to celebrate, I asked him if we could go for a run instead.  

We ran at a good clip- steady and did not stop.   It was a route I had not been on before- seeing beautiful huge houses in Chevy Chase every step we took.  

It was great!   Much harder than treadmilling it, but well worth it!!!!    Talk with you soon!   Thanks blog and bloggers for keeping me motivated!!!

Welcome to the blog and congratulation on your promotion. Keep up the running.

Nice run again...congrats on the promotion, wow a VP! You are a real runner when you celebrate something like this with a run rather than a drink (although I would have followed the run with a few drinks!).

As a VP, maybe one of those huge Chevy Chase houses will soon be yours!
