Taking Charge of 2013

2012 was a crazy year for me.
The crazy good = running a big PR in the indoor 3,000m, moving to Tallahassee to work at Florida State University, and having my amazing boyfriend move with me and love his new job here.
The crazy bad = being hit by a truck on March 9th while running in Lake Charles, Louisiana.
I spent way too much time in 2012 dwelling on that crazy bad.
2013 is not 2012.
Since November I have had a great time representing Capital City Runners in both local and non-local road and cross country races. In less than two weeks I will rock their fun jersey again and my favorite EC3D Compression socks as I hit the St. Marks Trail with hundreds of others to race the Tallahassee Half Marathon.
It will be my first time testing out racing the distance.
I have run that far basically once a week for what seems like forever (the last 6 years at least).
The farthest I have raced…
7. Once. So really 6.2 or 10k.
Basically, I am doubling my normal race distance.
Hence, the test run.
Training has been going well. I love the places we have to train in “Trail-ahassee” and I have so many great people to run and train with.
More details on training and racing to come.
For today is all about the foreshadowing.
Bring on the crazy good, 2013.
And try to keep up I have lots of plans.
