I don't know about you, but there's a lot that's gonna keep me busy.
For starters, I'm gonna continue with the fasted-cardio thing.I respect that not everyone is a fan (or an advocate) of it, but I know it works well for me and my early bird lifestyle. Besides, I love the satisfaction of getting in a great workout while a lot of the world is still in a state of slumber. I'll be doing my early morning runs on some days. There will be a lot of power walks, outside and (on occasion) on the treadmill. I'll be playing with the elliptical (stay tuned, that is still a work-in-progress). And, there will be some HIIT workouts happening. It's all gonna be great!

I have some new-to-me races to look forward to. Granted, I already have a pretty extensive roster of favorite races, but I'm really gonna make more of an effort to find some new ones to explore. After all, a new course is a guaranteed PR, right?
...And, the big (virtual) elephant in the (virtual) room.....my big, exciting goal for 2019....two back-to-back marathons! I have had my eye on the Air Force Marathon forever (thanks to my hubby's 30+ years of service), and the Marine Corps Marathon is a no-brainer. Go big or go home. The AFM is September 21 and the MCM is October 27. I have done eight marathons, so I am not new to the training. I also have done a marathon (Grandma's Marathon, June 2015) and run an ultra (Christmas in July 6-Hour) a month later. I do not have any grandiose finish time goals for either, but am eager for the challenge of taking on both of these military events.
So, there's a quick look into what I have happening down the road.
How about you? Any big goals on tap for 2019? Any new routines?
