I started blogging in 2014 to help track my progress as a new adult runner. You can read where I started and why here. I had only one goal at the time and that was to run and finish the Metro Detroit Chevy Dealers International Half Marathon! That goal came and went, you can read about it here.
Since then, I have really changed a lot as a runner. I have been through injuries and am now working my way back up the running standard I have for set for myself.
My goals now….
Finish my FIRST marathon. This was supposed to happen in April of 2015. Sadly, due to injury, it did not. Now I am looking at this fall and shooting for all the stars to align in my favor! Fingers crossed please!

The road to my first marathon started on 1/1. I have slowly been coming back into the running world and pushing myself further and further each week. Right now, I want to get faster and better conditioned! What am I doing to obtain these goals?
- Hired a personal trainer to help me get stronger!
- Completing a 9 week base building plan–>8 week half plan–>16 week marathon plan
- Eating a clean diet. Free of dairy, gluten and extra sugars!
- Get to and stay consistent at running 25 miles per week on average!

Set new PR’s. I want to do this for all distances. I know I can. My PR’s were all set in the summer/fall of 2014. Time to step it up and crush some old times!
