I'm a planner. I'm type A. I spend a lot of time thinking about what's next...what's my next race, what's my next PR, what's my next endurance event to push myself harder, faster. But I owe it to myself to look back to see what I have accomplished in my second year of running (and first year of this multi-sport thing).
Here are the stats from 2010:
20 races - 23 miles swam - 370 miles biked - 1,417 miles ran
4 5Ks - 1st place age group, 2nd place age group, 3rd place age group
4 10ks - Two 2nd place age group
6 half marathons - Set a fantastic PR 1:54:09
3 full marathons - 2 kicked my ass. But redeemed myself and set 24-minute PR with a 4:11:24 at Fort Worth Marathon
1 sprint triathlon
It's been a damn good year. I have to thank my friends who have supported me through all the ups and downs in 2010. I'm not going to lie, there were some pretty big disappointments, but I've finally been able to put those behind me and move forward. Sometimes I need to fall flat on my face to get back up on my feet and try harder to do better.
What's Next? 2011 - The Year of the Triathlon
Of course, you didn't think I could close this blog without a look ahead?
I've declared 2011 The Year of the Triathlon. Oh I have a few marathons thrown in just for fun, but my eyes are on Austin 70.3 in October. Stay tuned!
