New Year, New Goals

My January 5K is a Hunger Games themed challenge run. So, obviously, I will not be trying for a PR time. But it sounds like fun! I signed up for a color run. I missed the boat last year, so I’m excited about that. It’s in March.I don’t know if I’ll do a 5k every month this year. I started last year with the intention of doing one a month, but ended up doing 5 that year. It began as an injury and then it became a financial issue – they’re expensive! Anyway, I won’t insist on doing one every month this year, but 6 would be a nice number. As many 5K as catch my interest because of their theme or because they’re chip-timed – I like those. The real goal is to enjoy running and work towards a 25-minute 5K. If I surpass that goal, I will move on to another one.

Obstacle run plans...

I’ve had no knee pain for months. Credit goes to stretching after every run, and whenever the mood strikes, too. I’ve been keeping to a training plan that includes interval training, tempo runs, and slow, long runs. My endurance is getting back to what it was. I’m not sure what my times might be like in a race. I know they’re typically faster than my training runs. I have a race in January, but it’s an obstacle run, so I won’t be running for a PR. My husband is on my team, which I’m so excited about! It’s a Hunger Games theme, and we’re district 12: Katniss and Peeta.

Unexpected Visit

I knew we were going to our college friend’s wedding in Virginia. Happily, we stayed in Baltimore for the weekend, for nostalgic visits and surprise adventures. It was sentimental and fun, and I loved catching up with old friends and making new ones.
