The year of amazing-ness

I am aware that we are well into February but I wanted to write down some goals for 2011

*Land an amazing big girl job, this may be happening as soon as next month :)

*Run a full marathon, I am already signed up for the San Diego Rock and Roll! I hope I don't dieeeee. My goal is really to just finish but I'm hoping for a time around 4:40 maybe?

*Run at least 30-35 miles a week

* Run a sub 2:00 hour half marathon, I need to find one or two to sign up for soon! Suggestions?

*Lose 20 pounds, it's not really about the number but I have gained a good amount of weight in college and in Europe and i'm not too happy about it.

*Spend less time on my computer and phone (my sister knows how bad this issue is)  Is there a rehab for this? Sign me up!

Today my BFF (read: NOT) the treadmill and I spent an hour and a half of quality time together. I decided I need to start doing some hill training since the hills in races always KILL me.  I ran 3.75 miles of running at 5.7 for a song then running at an incline (1.5%-3%) for a song. Then I did 45sec hills at 5% incline. I'm not gonna lie, it was hard! Then I walked another 3.25 miles at a 3% incline.  The treadmill and I may becoming friends... maybe. Then my real BFF, the foam roller and I spent some quality time together. My muscles needed it.  I may attempt a long run of 10 miles tomorrow. Eek! Who am I kidding, I can do it!

My mom and I made pizza for dinner tonight.  My half is the one with turkey pepperoni. Yum yum!

I'm no wine snob, I love me some cheap $5-8 wine from Trader Joes, but Newman's Own wine? Really? Don't they make salad dressing? That's like Kraft making wine. I don't think I will be trying it in the near future, or ever.
