Goals for 2013! :)

This year, I have decided to set some very specific goals for myself.
I usually just generalize my goals (like I'll work out more and I'll blog more) and then I don't hold myself accountable and I end up slacking.
In the back of my mind I still catch myself saying "I probably won't accomplish most of these anyway", but maybe, just maybe, if I actually write them down and post them here for all to see, I might actually surprise myself! :)
I'm going to try to keep up monthly with what goals I have accomplished and what I need to work on. 
Here goes nothing!
2013 Goals 

1~ Run 13 Races in 2013!
Jill from Fitness, Health, & Happiness put up a challenge to run 13 races in 2013!
You can pick either a specific distance, trail runs, or a mix of distances!
I chose the mix, because I don't want to hurt myself.
I do have a goal of 1 half a month, but like I said...
I don't want to hurt myself and I'm not sure what the hot summer months will hold for me.

I already signed up for these 3:
 The Moms RUN This Town Winter Runnerland Virtual Half in January.
Cowtown Half in Fort Worth in February.

I'm still trying to decide about a race in April for m 30th Birthday!

And I want to run the San Antonio Rock N Roll half as well, but we will have to see once it gets a bit closer. I'm hoping to do a few more virtual halfs as well. That way I can do it whenever I am able, and they are usually cheaper lol. 

I can't wait to see how many halfs I can do in 2013! :)

2~ Run at least 3 times a week.
Whether it's a mile or 10, I need to run.

3~ Continue to become faster with my 5K time and my every day running.
I tend to go at a 14 min/mile with my stroller (12 min/mile without) and I don't think that is acceptable for me. 
I need to work on my stamina and become faster.
I think speed will also come with weight loss. :)

4~ Workout with my Sandbag at least 3 times a week.
Cross training is important, but boring to me.
I actually like to use my sandbag, but I need to do it more often!

5~ Do a #plankaday. Every day.
This one I will have to make it a weekly goal as well.

6~ Lose 5lb a month.
Yes, this is a bit of a reach, but you never know! :)

7~ Eat at least one more veggie every. single. day.

8~ Eat at least one more piece of fruit every day.
I love fruit, so this one should be easy.

9~ Limit sweet tea to one time a week.
I haven't had a soda since March, but sweet tea has been my weakness.
I will eventually say no to all sweet tea, but I think once a week is attainable for me right now! :)

10~ Blog 3 times a week.
This might mean that it will be a quick one, but I want to get on and at least check in with all of my blogger friends! 

11~ Do all of the #GirlsGoneSporty Challenges!
I absolutely love that I am a part of such a wonderful group and I want to participate as much as I can!

12~ Do even more for my Moms RUN This Town ladies!
I feel like I haven't done enough with them or for them this year.

13~ Go to bed earlier.
This is a hard one for me since I have a toddler and after she goes to bed, I finally get my "me" time. I end up staying awake until 1 and 2 in the morning finishing laundry, doing dishes (again), or finally being able to just sit in front of the computer and zone out.

There are my 13 goals for 2013! 
(yes I did that on purpose lol)

I hope you will all follow me on my journey as I try to accomplish each of these goals this year! :)

Now it's time to make 2013 even better!

Happy New Year Friends!!!! :)

Park Problem Solved! :)

Looks like I have found my park! It's about 10 min. away driving, but it is totally worth it! My run wasn't all that exciting, but the Park was! :) Here are my new running buddies! :) They are fun to watch while running by! :)  Yes that's my finger...The sun was very bright and I didn't see it! lol :) I just love it all!  Stopping to take pictures! :) I have to Thank my mom who actually Google Maped this Park for me! :) So glad she found it! :)  As for the run, I really don't know how long the trail is, so I don't even know how far I went! I made it all the way around, walking, in less than 15 min. so I am thinking that it is at least a mile. If it is, then I did 3 miles today! If not, then...I don't know! It's times like these that I wish I had my Garmin ! :) For the first 2 laps, I decided to just Run/Walk. I would run 5 min. walk for 1 or 2 min. Then the last lap I just walked the whole time. Just to enjoy it! I just have to say...the hills are

Cowtown Half Recap!

On Sunday, February 24, 2013 I ran my first official Half Marathon!  Before the race started, I met up with these fellow MRTT ladies!  Pic from How My World Runs It was freezing cold (yes 33 degrees is freezing to this Texan! haha) and I was hoping it wouldn't warm up too much because I run so much better in the cold. I ended up wearing my jacket the whole time and was completely comfortable! We had a wind advisory in affect and I think the wind made it even cooler. This was also my first time to run with my new haircut and with my hair down! Didn't bother me at all! Short hair for the win! :) I was in the very last Corral to start. Yes, I know I'm slow. Get Over it!<---Saw that saying on several shirts throughout the race!  Looks like I need one! haha :) I had to post this pic, because I have no idea what I was doing, nor remember even taking it! Haha! About 20 min before the race, I headed to the porta potty's. Yeah, I should have
