It's that time of year

It's time to get back in it - starting with the review of 2009, and heading into what's on the calendar for 2010!

2009 race recap:
March 7 - Run with the Wind 25K
March 21 - St. Patty's Urban Adventure Race with Brooke
April 26 - OKC Memorial Marathon
May 16 - Ozark Greenways Adventure Race - Durty Nellies team
June 13 - Boom Town Days 1/2 marathon - 1:59
July 25 - Dusk till Dawn with Amy
October 11 - Chicago Marathon

I thought it was going to look much more sparse than that - so I'm OK.  Next up, I figured up my totals for 2009 - I broke it into actual miles ran, actual miles biked, and finished it up with a generic category for hours of other stuff.  This includes 2-12 hour Adventure Races that I was unsure of actual distances for, hours in spinning, yoga, and other miscellaneous run, bikes, hikes that I only logged time for.

Running Miles - 1059.75
Biking Miles - 569.5
Hours of other - 115.5 

Summary for 2009 - overall it was a good year.  There was too much going on personally for me to have had a great year running wise so no major PR's.  But, I'm happy with where I'm at and looking forward to some improvements for 2010.

So, the game plan for 2010...

Run with the Wind 25K - February 27
Planning to tackle the Fat Tire Duathlon Series as a team with Brady - I'll run, he'll bike - there are 3 races - 2 in March, 1 in April
St. Patty's Urban Adventure Race - March 20
St. Louis Marathon - or maybe just 1/2 - April 11
Ozark Greenways Adventure Race - May 22
Mother road Marathon in Joplin - just to support the local race - Oct. 10
Dusk till Dawn Adventure Race - date not announced yet
I'll probably add, remove and tweak heavily between now and then, but it's a start.
So far my mileage for 2010 is not to par because of my severe case of the funk - only 15.5 miles total.  I plan to remedy that this coming week and weekend!  Power of positive thinking will help to get me through this dang cold!

Till then, run on, ride on!


  1. Chanti, you sure had a great '09! Best of luck with your goals this year!

  2. It's crazy how close our yearly totals were...but I count all miles (and estimate them in even if I don't know for sure). I am sure you are WAY past me if your real totals were there ;)

    And yes, the cold sucks.

  3. 2009 was great and Brooke I'm not surprised our totals are close - how often do we run together?? ;) I definitely don't think I'm WAY past you!

    I hope 2010 is a great year for all of us 'runners'!
