2014 Goals and Team Run This Year

Well hello there long lost friends, I've been MIA for so long I almost forgot how to do this.  No time like the present to restart and begin to hold myself accountable to the goals I will be setting for 2014.

2013 was good to me.  I started off the year with an educational injury that taught me more than 4 years of running put together.  I appreciate every day that I can run, it's not a guarantee, it's a gift.
A ran a few 5K's, a 4 miler, an 8K, a 10K and two halfs this year. I PR'd every race I ran this year which means I have me work cut out for me this coming year!  I had planned so much more but with the injury setting me back 2 months, I did not hit my goal of 1000 miles.  I have run 837 miles and plan on 3 more this evening to make it an even 840. 

Now onto the good stuff, 2014 goals.  I have been offered the fantastic opportunity to join Team Run This Year.  I am excited to see where this takes me and am going to be surrounded by some pretty awesome people in the meantime. If you want to join in on the fun and set some  awesome mileage goals, get motivation and support, head on over to Run This Year 2014 and get all signed up!!

2014 Goals:
Running Goals
- Run 2014K (I'm not quite strong enough to run 2014 miles)
- PR my half in April (trying to get into the 1:40's)
- PR my marathon in November (OBX Marathon)
- Begin to train for an ultra for 2015 (just keeping on after my marathon)
Other Goals
- Eat clean 75/25
- Incorporate more strength training
- Better impulse control in all areas of my life

Like most, I have a ton of plans in place for my goals and hopefully NOT like most I will see them through.  I'm in a few groups on FB that I hope will help me stay accountable for my actions.  
Here's to 2014!! Looking forward to the changes coming. 

What are your 2014 goals?  How did you do on your 2013 goals?  Anyone injured out there and need a pep talk?!

  1. Alright Carrie. I absolutely enjoy your blog. It's funny where our lives have taken us from our good old days at Coker :) anyways, I have signed up for my first half in april. Could you give me some tips on how to properly train so that I am prepared once April rolls around? Thanks for all the help you can give me and best of luck in 2014.
