Quick question...how do you handle running a race without music? My music keeps me pumped so I am not sure how I am going to function without it...

I can simplify my life and lighten my burdens by deciding realistically what I want to do and what I have time to do. (~_^)

I have 3 races in June. Two 5K races I will be running, the other I will be walking with a friend. She's not a runner. However, I do need to find some knee compressive sleeves. My knees are very achy right now after running yesterday!

One of my 2013 goals is to complete an Ultra Marathon, so I've registered for one in early April. It's a 50k (31 miles) so a good place to start! I'm excited! If I love it, I may end the year with a 50 miler, who knows!

Conquering "13 in 2013" is a considerable feat that has officially becomes a seriously audacious goal... I've mapped out how to conquer this goal before the end of June 2013.

As of today, I've committed to 3 bling-bearing virtuals (5Ks), 2 out-of-town events (5K & 10K), and the Polar Dash (10K). That's 6 of 13...

Memorial Day Ridge Run does not bear bling, but it marks my 5k runniversary. That's 7 of 13...
...
I am NOT afraid of the half marathon distance goal that I've set for my self... once I find some discount codes, my 1st 1/2 will be in March ("Get Lucky"), my 2nd 1/2 will be in May ("1st Midwest"), my 3rd 1/2 will be in June ("Allstate"). That will make 10 of 13...

3 to go... Shamrock Shuffle (8K)? Soldier Field 10 miler (16K)? Disco Dash (5K; my BGR exposure anniversary)?

I am actually going to get this DONE! Moreover, I will do this injury-free, for the fun of accomplishing a personal goal on each run, and for no one other than ME!!!
