My Running Goals for 2012
- Join a running club once I move back to IL
- Finish Chicago Marathon (my first!)
- Finish at least 6 Half Marathons
- 1:50 Half Marathon PR
- Train Mocha to run with me
What's that? You thought I had a cat? Well, that's correct. I have a cat. Mocha is actually my parent's dog. But since I'll be living with my parents while James is deployed, I decided I would try to train her to run with me. She is about three years old now, so now is a good time to train her (according to Runner's World anyway).
Perhaps it's a little soon to be thinking about New Year's resolutions, but since I know I'll be on my own, I figure it would be a good time to start thinking about what I would be doing with my time that year.
I'm thinking about an Olympic-distance triathlon too.. which is about twice the distance of a sprint. But training for a triathlon is a lot trickier since you have to fit in good swimming workouts and biking as well.. It would be a relief to myself if I decided to only focus on running and getting a decent time in the marathon. But we'll see.
Anyone else have goals yet for 2012?
