Runners share their 2013 goals

I asked local runners: What are your running goals for 2013?

Silver buckle at Western States (sub-24), and a Boston Qualifier. — Pat Krott

To still be running at the end of 2013. — Jan Comi

To get back running – to where I was in July of 2012 – maybe even stronger and better. — Tim May

Simply to get back running after a bad injury. —Christine Vassen

I am still trying to get under a two hour half! — Lisa Shade

To successfully complete series of snares and trip wires so I can beat Heather Cass in a race through Harborcreek Community Park. — Eloise Hawking (LOL, Eloise!)

To not quit just because of no one to run with. — Tom Twohig

I want to try to do at least one half-marathon a year, and find neat places to do them. This year, my goal is the Shiner Beer Run half marathon: — Matt Madurski

Well since I just recently took up running and am only a beginner, I would like to get up to a mile under 7 or 8 minutes. My best was 8:26 in my sophomore year of high school and I’d like to get back to that or better. — Courtney Giordano

Stay injury free! — Ginny Sackett

Half marathon! — Theresa Konzel 

365 miles run total for 2013. — Kristen Gehrlein

To run at least 2 events this year. One at my own pace. One keeping up with Dale. — Lisa Zdunski

To not injure myself.  — Amy Morrow

To run. — Jim Lang

My goals? Meh…been there, done all that.  I’m going for a year of ordinary achievement. My only real goal this year is the help some of you reach your goals.
