2010 Review

2010 Stats Miles: 3822 (down from 4147 in 2009)
Days ran: 328/365 (about 30 days missed dealing with this achilles)
Races: 19 (15 First Place finishes, mainly small stuff)

Good training year but racing wise I never raced up to my training. Most of the 19 races I ran were used as harder workouts but the ones I went in trying to race all out never went very well. The key thing I learned is obviously I wasn’t “ready” like I thought for key races or in the case of Boston just burned out with too long of a build. I feel the #1 thing I learned is I have to train differently to race well.

Thanks to Team Strands Marian and me both received 2,500 each Mizuno Budget, All expense paid trips for Miami-Boston-Va Beach-Columbus races, as well as monthly stipend checks that really was a huge help for paying bills/rent and buying groceries. In total I think we combine won roughly 2500 in race winning.
All that earnings mentioned above isn't too bad for average runners just doing what we love to do! It is amazing and hard to believe we roughly totaled 15,000 dollars in running related support in our very blessed 2010!
