2011 was a really good year. I participated in 2 sprint triathlons
Sprint Triathlon, Soggy Seal Triathlon) , a duathlon, a 5K, 10K, 25K, and a marathon.
This year I ran 1407 miles at an average pace of 7:39 min/miles and biked 1421 miles at an average speed of 16.5 mph. It was a breakthrough year for my swimming. I swam 125.2 miles at an average mile pace of 38:32, and I finished the year with a pace of 35:27.
In May I passed-out at the finish of Jesse Owens 10K. This was a first for me. I still managed 1st place in my age group and 16th overall out of 124. I beat the heat this year. I ran fast all summer and finished a 5K in
August with a 20:16. This is faster then I believed possible for me in
the heat of summer.
I was able to develop a pretty good running base this fall and had a great Rocket City Marathon. I was able to best last year, qualify for Boston, and place 5th in my age group.
I hope to maintain my momentum into the Black Warrior 50K and have a good spring of racing. I hope that God blesses me with another healthy year of running.
