So one of my big goals for 2014 is to kick my butt into shape – quite literally! I am working with a trainer at the gym now to help me with the buildup for my big race: NYC!!! I can’t tell you how excited I am for it…I started applying to the lottery for it immediately after completing my first full marathon. Last year, I finally got in – and then I got peroneal tendonitis and had to take a break from running for awhile.

The goal this year – kick butt at NYC and become a stronger runner! I’m also trying to lose weight and get in better shape…it’s really a full combination of things that I’m working on, so I’ll be posting a fair amount about that. I’m still working out my schedule, but race wise, I am ready =)
