Resolutions, Rehashing, and Racing

It's a New Year! Meaning it's that time of year again. It's time for another grand plan. And in case you all haven't noticed by now, this gal loves to make a sweeping declarative statement. I love setting goals, making plans, and dreaming of the big finish.

And this year I am dreaming of my perfect Marathon finish! 2013 is all about Going The Distance! I am going to log many miles this year. And I am going to run many races in search of PRs and a healthy happy life.

2012 was a year of Running and Recovery. It took 8 long months to find my running mojo again. But now I am finally feeling strong and healthy. So this year is all about discovering what this little defective body of mine can really do - Healthy, Happy, and Whole.

I will run a Sub-5 Marathon. I will cross that finish line rocking out to girlie pop, smiling, feeling strong, and embracing my body for its strength and determination. So let's get started, shall we?!

Training for a sub-5 marathon means logging those miles - lots of miles. 

And this time I am challenging you to join me?! Let's go the distance together!

Your goal might not be marathon. Maybe it's just making a commitment  to start logging a few miles each week. Maybe you are a looking to start running for the first time? Maybe you just want to start moving more in 2013? Whatever it is - I am challenging you to commit to logging YOUR distance each week for the next month!

By the end of 4 weeks you will have made your new routine a habit. You will see amazing progress. And you will be committed to going the distance this year!

I teamed up with a couple of my favourite local bloggers to help keep you motivated! Robyn, JessMorgan and I are all committed to logging our miles (in a wide variety of ways). We are here to encourage and support you - plus we all have snazzy prizes for those of you who participate! Think of us as your little Distance Fairies - sending you sparkly motivation, running mojo, and swag!
