The Weekly Chase- Live, Love, and Run

When I read about Live, Love, and Run‘s new feature called The Weekly Chase, I knew instantly I wanted to be a part of it! The Weekly Chase is all about connecting bloggers with other bloggers to meet our goals.  Every week, bloggers will post about their goals.  The topics can range from fitness, running, eating, organizing, etc.

As a former leader of college student groups, during my pre-stay at home mommy, post-college days, I was constantly asking my students to set goals, evaluate their goals, and help them to stay on track to achieve their goals.  I loved watching my students achieve their goals!

As a new mom, I don’t have many goals of my own other than to be the best mom I can be to my daughter on a daily basis. As a newbie runner I think The Weekly Chase will be the perfect opportunity to push me towards setting and accomplishing running goals!  One of the rules for The Weekly Chase is to set at least one goal every Monday.  I have two goals for my first edition:

1.  Finish my goal of running 40 miles in June.  After tonight’s 5 mile run I have less than 4 miles to go!

2. Sign up for my first Half Marathon.  I want to do it, think about doing it, dream about doing it, but I just haven’t pulled the trigger.  This week I will sign up for a half marathon and make it public knowledge so I feel accountable.

What are your goals this week?

  1. Molly, your #2 goal is very near and dear to my heart. Back in April, I was signed up to do a 5K that I’ve done for three years now…it was my very first one. The night before, something happened to my ankle, and I could barely walk the next morning…the morning of the race. That day, I felt defeated. Instead of moping about it, I set the date for my first half marathon. I waited a little bit to register, because I wanted to save a little $ on it. But I signed up for it…and guess what? I’m a month away…and I have a long run of 11 miles tomorrow. I never ever EVER thought I could do it…but I did it. I was stuck in 5K distance with no change in sight, and I pushed past that limitation I put on myself. 13.1, here I come! You can TOTALLY do this, and I’ll support you 100%. Sign up. Take the plunge, and I promise you won’t regret it. :D

    And I’m so glad you linked up! Thanks for the love! :D

    • Thanks so much for the kind words, Melissa! I love your story and it is totally inspiring to me. Good luck with your run tomorrow! I will be anxious to hear about it. Thanks again for starting The Weekly Chase. I look forward to supporting one another in our goals :)

  2. Molly, what awesome goals!!! I remember when I set the goal to run my first half marathon…and now I’ve already run 9 plus 1 full. So you CAN do it!!! I can’t wait to read all about your journey!

  3. Congrats, Newbie runner! I am so glad to meet you and to be chasing goals with you. As far as that 13.1 goes, Do it! Do it! Do it! It will feel great. And I’m sure by now, you have already met your 40 miles for the month. Congrats!
