Goals for 2018:

Goal #1
Staying active as my body allows throughout the rest of my pregnancy.

I am currently 19 weeks pregnant so with 21 weeks left there abouts I have a lot of time on my hands. I have been feeling great and have gotten back into running and working out during the past couple of weeks. My plan for the next 5 months or so is to listen to my body. Run, walk, strength train and stretch as I feel comfortable doing with the growing and changing of my body.

Goal #2
Run my first 5k postpartum in September.

Not sure which race this will be locally but the end of September usually holds a couple of different races and one of them is the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. More than likely this will be the race I do.

A few years ago at the Susan G Komen Race for the Cure!

Goal #3
Run my first postpartum half marathon October 28th.

The half marathon I’m looking at/setting my goal for is the Air Capital Half marathon here in Wichita. I haven’t run this one before but it is a fairly small race limiting the race size to 200 people. This will be approximately 5 months postpartum and will hopefully give me the time I need to return to half marathon shape/ability!

Goal #4
1000 Miles in 2018

I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to do the 2018 miles in 2018 challenge but with the baby on the way I need to be realistic and realize that this just isn’t in the books for this year…maybe 2019 🙂 However, I would like to set the goal for 1000 miles in 2018. This goal will be a little up in the air though depending on how the end of my pregnancy goes and how soon I am able to get back to running safely postpartum.

Now it is your turn! What are your health/fitness/running goals for 2018?!?!
