Ending the Year Positively

Well, this could be the last hurrah as a competitive age group runner for this blogger.

Had a great running year through October. I ran about 1,800 miles, plus had three months of xc ski racing and training at the beginning of the year. And as an age group athlete, this was my best year yet.

Distance - Time (US 50-54 age ranking)
1 mile/track - 5:00.8 (9th)
3000 m/track - 10:11.7 (7th) (also ran that 10:06 time trial)
5K/road - 17:01.3 (11th)
8K/road - 28:32.3 (7th)
10K/road - 35:45.1 (5th)
½ marathon - 1:18:52.3 (5th)

Road racing--caveat that road rankings are not complete, but it's the best that we have

and as a bonus
50K USA National Masters xc ski Championship
2:34:37 (1st)

Winning the Sonot 50K age group (6th overall) a week later was nice too.
