Your SMART Running Goals!

So, I have majorly been slacking on my blog posts this week.

For that, I am terribly sorry.

Things have been a little nutzo at work!

Annnnnnd I’m getting ready for yet another vacation, so needless to say I am very behind.

Yes, I know, I take a LOT of vacations.

Working in the hospitality industry will do that to you.


A friend and I are driving down to San Diego for the weekend!

We are going to visit a few friends while we are there.

I’m pretty stoked!

Anyway, enough about me.

Last week, I talked about the importance of making SMART running goals.

I asked you to write down your SMART goals and email them to me.

And you didddddddddddd!

I was beyond stoked to get the number of responses that I did…

THANK YOU to those of you who took the time to share their goals.

Let’s go over them!

She writes, “I’m coming back from an injury that lasted me well over a year, but things are looking good.  I have a half marathon planned on Father’s Day in June as a bit of a get back in the game/tune up race and I hope to do multiple 10Ks in the coming months to get back some leg speed and such.  A year ago, I ran Princess with my injury (it started in summer 2014 and only recently stopped bothering me) and I ran a 1:52:45 and a 49:04….but I did zero speed work leading into those races because it hurt too much.”

cropped-wineglassHe writes, “Last year it was my first Half. Ill-prepared and without a plan, my goal was sub 2:00.  I finished in 2:09:19. Went out too fast, and started crashing after mile 9. I have a training plan in place, and will follow it. Last year was my first full. I thought I was prepared, but a couple last minute changes in routine played a part in why I missed the mark, (even though I read countless articles telling me not to do just that). I ran a sub 2:00 first half of the race, but my feet failed me on the back half. I finished in 4:16:23. I have a training plan in place, and will follow it, (and not make any last minute changes).

I know what I need to do to achieve these goals, and feel I am well on my way.”


Kate says:



Isn’t it motivating to see the goals of other people?

I know I am excited!

Again, THANK YOU to everyone who sent over their goals and best of luck to you in achieving them!
If I can help you in any way, please let me know!!

    Thank you for the shout out. Had a bit of a set-back (well, a major one), tore my calf muscle on Tuesday. My goals stay the same, although the May 1st Half Marathon will have to shift to a later date. Thanks for the inspiration.
