Goals 2010 - Review

I was going gung ho on my goals when I got injured. I completely stopped thinking about them once I wasn't running. So let's take a look and see how I did.


  • Improve 5K/10K time - This is a throughout the year thing, not an overall PR. I improved my 5K for the year 3 times and 10 K once.
  • Run in some new races- MET THIS ONE BIGTIME AND HAD A BLAST DOING IT Half at the Hamptons, (Photo to the left) Middlebury Maple Run (also a half marathon), Champlain Classic 15K - a new distance, Sunshine Run, Capital City Stampede, Run for Roses (won Mother/Daughter division),Summer Round Up Trail 12K, Silks and Satins, Dare 5K
  • Run in a marathon and PR - Injured - DNS
  • Race in a new state - Maryland and Colorado (photo to left taken by K at Happy Trails!)
  • Get name in Burlington Free Press or New England Runner -Spring Fling - BFP
  • Race with family members- First Run - husband, Vermont City Marathon - both kids, Run for Roses - EMily, Stowe 8 Miler - EMily
(Run for Roses in Maryland - I'm in pink shirt and white cap. Emily is ahead somewhere helping us
win our division!)
  • Place in age group- 2/5 Polar Cap, 1/2 Spring Fling, 3/22 Sunshine Run, 3/29 Run for Roses
  • Keep a race blog - Oh yes. This was going to be just a race blog but I have more to blog about than I thought I did. And thanks for reading and especially for commenting!
  • PR in a half marathon- No I did not! But I entered 3 and do love the distance!
  • Have one overall PR at any distance for the year - only in new distance - the 15K and 12K so I will call this half met.
  • Be in top half of field - This happened 6 times.
  • Race once a month at least - This was totally happening until my injury.
  • Race in 22 races overall - Same as above. Maybe this is why I got injured??? I do love to race.
  • Pick up my speed while training - I would say no for most of the time.
So that is it. Now I need to think about my new goals. Happy running for the rest of 2010!

you did great with the running goals, especially considering how much time you missed when sidelined. i'm glad this wasn't just a race blog! :)

What a fantastic year you had! It sucks being sidelined by an injury, but I love that you really made the most of a tough situation by discovering a love for cycling.
