My March Madness

I know there is still one day left in March, but I'm summing up the month a day early and posting my April goals now in hopes of motivating myself by putting in black and white what I need/want to do. Since I didn't have any specific running goals for March, other than to run as much as possible, I'll skip the running recap. Next month will be different though. There will be a plan and the plan will be followed.

Current Book: The Angel's Game by Carlos Ruiz Zafon. The Shadow of the Wind was excellent, and Angel's is not disappointing. In fact, if I hadn't borrowed it from my brother, it would be marked up by now. And I am not typically a person who highlights and marks up her books, in spite of my English degree/background. I finally finished Freedom by Jonathan Franzen. It took sooooo long. It is a long book, but it just never drew me in. I would give it a 2.5 out of 5 stars.

Current Shame-Inducing Guilty Pleasure: Putting the RUNNERD store together. Only shame inducing due to the ridiculous amount of time I have spent doing it.

Current Colors: Purple. The Princess has her first soccer game tomorrow, and she is on The Purple Team.

Current Obsessions: Coconut Creme Hershey's Kisses. You MUST try them.

Current Drink: Water, water, water.

Current Song: Lady Gaga's Born This Way

Current Wish-List: Tangled. I was going to buy it today, but it is sold out everywhere!

Current Need: To get registered for the Thanksgiving Point Half Marathon. The price goes up on Friday.

Current Triumph: My little Bean's excitement about starting gymnastics.

Current Bane of my Existence: The article I have due on Monday. The timing couldn't be worse and the interview subjects couldn't be less cooperative.

Current Goal: Sticking to April's training plan and the Thanksgiving Point Half on 4/30.

Current Indulgence: Blogging, since I should really be working.

Current Blessings: My girls, the hubs and my health.

Current Excitement: Going to see My Run tomorrow night with some of my favorite fellow RUNNERDS.

April Goals:

  • Run at least 4x/wk and no less than 25 miles/wk

  • P90X Core Synergistics 2x/wk

  • Upper and lower body strength 2x/wk

  • Cardio cross train at least 1x/wk


  1. I'm loving the Runnerd store!! Totally worth the time :).

    We are rocking the same current song. LOVE Gaga!

  2. Oh gosh--I LOVED, I mean LOVED, Freedom! I seriously thought it was one of the best ever. We must have completely different tastes in literature!

  3. Great goals! As the days get longer, I'm hoping to have more time to fit everything in too.

  4. It sounds like you are really busy but I'm glad you spent all that time on the runnerd store. I've gotten quite a few comments about it! I love it!
    Love your goals!

  5. Awesome the little one's getting into gymnastics. My little girl did ballet and gymnastics for a while - its a great way for little girls to gain a ton of self confidence!

  6. A good list.
    Good luck on your april goals.
    Have a nice week end.

  7. Great goals - you're inspiring me to kick it up a notch this month!
