As you know, I've been using #GoalGetter2013 and the Weekly Chase to help me stay accountable for my running resolutions and weekly goals. I will be doing an update each month to help me stay focused.
Here are my previous updates:
Now for the month of April!
13 in 2013 Running Goal: I ran my last race of the season this month...the Gulf Coast Half Marathon on Pensacola Beach! Race season is basically over for me because of the heat where I live.
5 by the 5th Virtual Race Series Running Goal: I ran my April 5K for this goal and ran it pretty fast for me...my time was 29:33!
Digital Running Interstate Challenge Goal: I completed this challenge with the Gulf Coast Half Marathon in Florida this month!
Quality Time with my Boys Goal: I've been making sure to spend more time with my boys each day! We've all enjoyed it!
Daily Bible Devotional Goal: I've been using the Our Daily Bread App on my iPhone as well as a devotional book that a friend gave me a while back for this. I will say that there are some days that I forget to do my devotional but I am getting better at it.
Per #GoalGetter2013 requirements, I posted the following picture on Instagram to show my goal progress for April! I am happy to say that I completed the Digital Running Interstate Challenge! The Rock 'n' Roll New Orleans Half Marathon in Louisiana and the Gulf Coast Half Marathon on Pensacola Beach in Florida qualified me for the challenge!
For the month of May I am focusing on running the virtual race for 5 by the 5th. It is super hot here on the Gulf Coast this time of year and too hot to race. So my 13 in 2013 running goal will be put on hold until the fall. I am also going to focus on running at least 3 times a week and trying to keep up my long mileage to at least 6 miles so I will be ready to jump back into half marathon training in the fall.
As I've talked about in my Weekly Chase posts, I want to continue to read my Bible daily. I also want to continue to stretch and roll daily.
I hope you are joining me for both the Weekly Chase and #GoalGetter2013!
