My race log

This is my race log.

A work in progress, this is a first draft at listing my lifetime races. I started keeping a run log and racing regularly in 2003, yet the data is spread all over the place. I hope to get it all organized and make this post a permanent link in sidebar.

Check back for updates, addition of personal comment, and when available, links to race reports.

1998
June - Sound to Narrows 12k, Tacoma WA (time unknown)
Sep - Super Jock 'n Jill 13.1M, Woodinville WA (1:31)
Oct - Portland Marathon, OR (3:18); first marathon

Comments: Stationed at Ft. Lewis, WA from 1997-2001. The Sound to Narrows race is a Tacoma tradition on a pretty, yet wicked hilly course. On 8 weeks notice, joined my roommate and another colleague on a crash-course in marathon. Longest long run 18 miles. Ran my first half and full marathons.

1999
June - Sound to Narrows 12k, Tacoma WA (time unknown)
Sep - Super Jock 'n Jill 13.1M, Woodinville WA (1:5x)
Oct - Royal Victoria Marathon, British Columbia (3:22)

Comments: Not as dilligent at training this year. Golf was still my pastime of choice.

2003 (5 races)

9/7 - Cleveland Clinic River Run Half Marathon 13.1M (1:27:41) - PR breakthough race
10/19 - Columbus Marathon (3:13:58) - PR

Comments: Naturally, every distance in my debut season would be a PR. 2003 was the year I finally quit smoking. Cold turkey on Aug 15. I aimed directly for Boston Marathon qualifying (sub-3:11) and fell less than two minutes shy. The River Run HM was a huge breakout performance. I had no idea I could maintain that sort of speed.

10/24 - Detroit Marathon (3:15:40) - Started too fast, crawled to the finish. Humid day

Comments: In 2004 came close again, but still chasing the BQ. This year I discovered the Mohican Trail 100 as I ran as pacer for an Arizona woman who finished 2nd place. Went 35 miles through the night with Jody. I've been enchanted with Mohican ever since.

Thanks Sara. Still working on it. You were looking at it before I posted the wholesale changes.

What can I say, racing's fun!

The leg feels better. I hope the worst is past.
