Happy Holidays – Guest Post from “Lisa Runs for Cupcakes”

on December 26, 2012

Hello RFYHP followers!

My name is Lisa and I blog over at Lisa Runs for Cupcakes. I’m a working mom
and military wife and enjoys running for cupcakes! I want to thank Run Find Your
Happy Pace for inviting me over to guest blog while she is out of town. Darlena and
I are definitely cut from the same cupcake loving cloth and it is an honor to have a
post here!

With the holidays upon us, it is only natural to begin thinking about goals for the
upcoming year. Here are a few things that I hope to focus on in 2013:

Dorothy Beal, the marathoner mom blogging at Mile Posts, coined the term; I run
this body. And, I plan to run this body for a long time. In order to achieve my first
goal, I plan to stretch, ice, and foam roll regularly. And most importantly, listen to
my body when I need those extra rest days.

The half fanatics are a bunch of folks that love running half marathons. In order
to join the club at the first level of half fanatic status, you can either run 2 half
marathons within 16 days or 3 half marathons in 90 days. To achieve my second
goal, I am registered to race 3 half marathons in 55 days. If I train smart and
successfully run the Disney Land Tinker Bell on January 20th, the Disney World
Princess on February 24th, and the Rock ‘n’ Roll USA on March 16th,I will be ready to

Over the past year, I ran my first half marathon in 2:24:32 and my current PR is
2:00:30. I want to blow that PR out of the water. To achieve my third main goal of
2013, I plan to stick to a training plan! I am not the best at sticking to plans and I
think that if I do, I will see success in meeting a new PR.

Now that I have shared my top three goals for 2013, I would love to hear yours!

  1. I love your goals! I have two for 2013. Spring 50 miler then work on speed for a fall 50k PR (I am super slow at any distance right now)

Would love to hear from you!
