1. Don't get injured.
2. Complete Massanutten 100
< 20:00 100M
< 2:55 marathon
MTA spend less time injured. Means fewer races. Once my hamstring heals.

Trail Runner Nation
To complete a difficult trail 100 miler - Black Hills 100. I will be 50 this year and frankly, my friends and relatives don't know how to react to the news of my entry into the race. I don't think they can comprehend it or they think I'm lying about a 100 mile footrace that is run all at once....or they think I'm crazy and don't want to say it to my face. I get a lot of blank stares.
2013 Goal: 365d+2013mi
I am a relatively new runner, so my goals are probably pretty lofty for my level of training so far.
1) Run 2,013 miles in 2013. (This will more than double what I did last year. 2012 was about 1,000 and 2011 was closer to 500 mi).
2) Run all 365 days in 2013. (At least 2 mile easy runs on what used to be the 'off' days).
3) Run the Hampton, VA 24-hour race and my "A" goal is 80+ miles. (I only got 40.5 miles last year in my first 24-hour race. Stopped at less than 12 hours in, but am much better trained and educated now!)
The Plan (the big parts)→ /// April 20th: 24 Hour Race Hampton, VA (PR of 76.25 Miles) /// May 19th: Three Days at the Fair (12 Hour) in NJ /// Jul 6th: Merrill's Mile 24 hour in GA. /// Sep 21st: NC-24 Hour Race in Ohio /// Nov 23rd: JFK-50 in MD /// Dec 31st: Peanut Island (12 Hour) in FL /// ∞
1) 3500 Miles in 2013.
2) Sub 24 hour Headlands 100 finisher.
3) Sub 2:45 Marathon. Tentatively aiming for Chicago.
Marathon PR: 2:52 at the CIM 2012 hurricane.
2013 Finishes: (3) 50K, (2) 50M, (3) Marathons
2013 Goals: 2:45 marathon and Headlands 100 miler 24-hour finisher.
Next Race: Goldrush 100k - 5/11/2013
