2009 Running and Racing Year in Review

I compiled most of this report late November since I am obviously a statistics nut and enjoy seeing the numbers.

Goals accomplished for 2009 - (I was pretty wimpy since I only had 1 goal for 2009 and consider it accomplished):

1. Continue to enjoy running and racing.

I was too busy with showing the house and moving for me to be too specific with running goals so I made it easy with a very simple goal. Some other accomplishments were I broke my half marathon PR only a week after 3 Days of Syllamo so consider that to be my big PR of the year since it was on the same course of my last PR. I ran 2 marathons (Heart of America & Lewis and Clark) which were only 6 days apart. Had a course PR just over 3 hours at HOA and sub-3 at Lewis & Clark. Ran the Q50 - 50K injured (bulging disc - did not know for sure at the time), set a 50K PR on a flat course, and second place overall. Continuing to overcome my bulging disc and run was difficult but I made it though and the worst seems to be over. I never felt burned out from doing races like I have some years so that is a plus too.
