- My #13in2013 Race Shirt Choices ! I put it to vote on Instagram a while back… Here are a couple design choices for my #13in2013 race shirts ! Which would you prefer to follow ?!
- Scarborough Beach/Trail Run, Narragansett RI, 5k Race #1 of #13in2013 A week removed from my first 5k of 2013 I am wishing I was back on the beach! Although it was a very frigid, windy morning on a Rhode Island beach i truly enjoy this run. It’s one of the smaller races with only 130 runners. Having (sortof) planned out how long I would be standing outside I was thrown off a bit by the delayed start. Connecting with a couple fellow runners was enjoyable and helped pass the time quicker. My feet started to go numb but once the run was underway the cold disappeared and resumed feeling by mile 2. The first mile was just beach. Comparing to last year it went smooth, I ran hard but didn’t push it. I followed a woman that kept a great pace which helped manage mine. I was proud that when she dropped back I kept up, something that I would not have done last year. At about the 2.5 mile marker running along the trail that overlooks the coastline is when a couple of 8-9 kids passed me instead of getting discouraged I did my best to manage my own pace… It was essentially a non-stop run not counting the mini-obstacle through the old rock beach house. Last year I stopped to take pics, not this year! High fives at the finish are nice but didn’t have my boys cheering me on. It was way too cold but it would have been even cooler for them to see mommy didn’t finish last this year – there will ...
- Are you ready for #13in2013 ? Yes. You. I am at it again… Booked my first run of 2013. Some may recall that I came up with this crazy goal for 2012 in January of 2012, #12in2012. Well I have come to the conclusion to do it again, this time #13in2013. This time will be a little different as I will be part of an online support system. I was in my own little world last year, broadcasting to you, not knowing that there was tons of other women out there running their own version of #12in2012. I am excited for this new challenge with a new network of runners to keep me motivated to push myself. A few goals that have been rolling around in my brain were 3 key “runs” and/or a full sprint triathlon. I will probably go for a light obstacle race and hit Diva Dash Boston again. 3 runs seemed like too light of a goal, that I would easily get lazy with. I am not so much interested in distance running as I am in building endurance, strength and weight training. As I type and recall my first race of 2012 – I am happy to realize they have posted the same race again, Resolution 5k Beach & Trail Run It was not online a few weeks ago! I think I was in the same state of mind, thinking…wait. Less than two weeks? Ugh. I can do this. They collect canned goods for donation to local food pantry. It was a gorgeous run, although this year it starts at 9am, not noon. Good Luck to my fellow #13in2013′ers !!
