Greetings! We are already one month into 2015. Here in Pittsburgh it's been cold, although we haven't seen as much snow as the Northeast cities. The weather definitely makes running more challenging. I've been spending a lot more time on the treadmilll and in the gym this year. But when the weather isn't so hazardous I do try to run outside.
For the past two years I've been focusing on the marathon. This year I've decided to focus on the half marathon and hopefully get a personal best. In March I'll be running the Rock and Roll DC Half Marathon and in May I'll be running the Pittsburgh Half Marathon. I'm really looking forward to running these races, as the half marathon is one of my favorite distances to run.
I've also signed up for the 2015 CrossFit Open, which begins later this month. Last year was my first year doing the Open and I really surprised myself. I don't want to miss out on the fun this year so I signed up again. Hopefully I'll see some improvements from last year!
Now that I've talked about some of my goals for 2015, I want to hear about yours! I have a survey on my home page asking you what your goals are for 2015 and one of the most popular answers from my readers is to run a new distance race this year. So what races are you running? I'd love to hear from you!
Yours in Fitness,

I like to run, take pictures and write. I've combined all three in this blog.
