Goals for 2012

Wow it has been a while since I have sat down to blog.  I guess that is for many reasons, mostly because I was not running.  Once I was able to run in July, I originally thought that I would pick up where I left off, but I was wrong.  I was not at that level at all.  Part of me was scared that I would get injured again.  I had self doubt that I should even be out there running.  Lots of things going through my head.

Well after some major fighting in my head, and honestly missing the road I have decided that it is time.  I need to get back out there.  I did not hit any of my goals for running in 2011, guess they were a bit ambitious.   Now that it is the end of December it is time to start to think about where to go in 2012.  Many times I have thought about this.  I have finally decided that 2012 is going to be the year of the half marathon for me.

The Half Mary is my favorite race over all.  It is a perfect distance to be a challenge to run.  This is a great distance to focus on a PR.  That is exactly what I am going to do.  I am running the Cleveland Half Marathon.  I plan on finding many more different half Marathons to run though out the year (if there are any suggestions please let me know)  I am looking forward to the Cleveland Half.  This is going to be an exciting experience because I want to focus on a PR for this race.

I am also honored to be an official Blogger for the Cleveland Marathon again. As a busy mother of 2 boys I have learned just how much running has a positive effect on my life.  It helps me to be more focused and a better mother.  I am looking forward to sharing my journey towards the Marathon, and how I am striving for a PR for this race.  I know that this is going to be an amazing experience, and I am looking forward to inspire others to try running for this great event.  My goal is to compare the Marathon training and a PR training for a half marathon.

My other goal is to run at least one race for Charity.  I am going to run with OAR.  This is close to my heart and if I can help a great cause it is the perfect way for me to help.  I will have my fundraising page set up soon, so be ready to see that.

You will see so much coming up in the next year for me.  I am looking to show everyone that running is a sport for everyone.  Anyone can get off the couch and go out for a run.  It does not matter how fast you are, it only matters that you tried.

Keep Running:)
