Snowball Shuffle 8K

This race was a part of Run With Jess's Winter Miles challenge. It's a virtual 8K race. I was lucky to work this race in due to the unseasonably cold and snowy winter we're having.  Treadmills are really getting boring!!  But the weather actually warmed up on the day I planned to go out, and I managed to finish!!  Love the medal!!

Happy New Year 2014

Reflecting on 2013:  

2013 was the year of the set back for my racing, starting with a stress fracture early in the year. It forced me to find other activities in addition to running.   I found Zumba which keeps me moving and is a ton of fun too!!  

I worked in a handful of races during the year, mostly shorter distances with a new PR for the 10k at the Marine Corps 10k.  I only managed to run 1 Half out of 3 I was registered for :/. 

I also volunteered with a women's training group in the Summer. Hope to do that again!!

1 - Fun Run (Drenched 5K)
2 - 5K (Virtual Runs)
2 - 5K - 26:20
1 - 5M - 46:49
1 - 10K (Virtual Run) 
1 - 10K - PR 59:41 MCM 
1 - 10M  1:43:11
1 - HM (13.1) 2:18:07 

So, what's next???  

Now for 2014 goals:

My plan is to get back to running consistently at least 3X a week, running shorter races (5K & 10Ks) mostly. I have 2-3 Halfs I'd like to run with that Sub-2 hour goal still hanging out there.  I want to remember I run for fun and fitness!!  

Happy New Year!!  Here's to happy and healthy running!
