2008 is Almost a Rap

One day left and I know I won't be adding anything to the log so I figured I would go ahead and throw out or should I say "throw up" my final stats for the year. The first half of the year seemed to be all about running then injury hit and biking took over. I almost feel like I have become a biker that runs some. Anyway, here is some of the final numbers for what its worth.

Finished 14 Races of various lengths not counting one Duathlon. Injured in mid-June with PF.
Raced 12 races in the Grand Prix Series finishing 8th in my age group out of 14 runners.
Here are the races by length:
2 - 2 milers
6 - 5k's
2- 10k's
1- 15k
2 - 1/2 Marathons
1 - Full Marathon

Set 7 new PR's at various times prior to my injury.
1 mile - 7:56
2 mile - 16:19
5k - 27:20
10k - 58:01
15k - 1:33:58
1/2 - 2:18:16
Marathon - 4:58:03

By the way, the one mile and 2 mile time was right when I started hurting in June. Had really started building up a little speed and then lost it all to injury.

This was the fun stuff. Not sure how many long rides over 60 miles I did training with others but here are the official rides.
2 - 100 mile Centuries
1 - 62 mile bike tour

1 - Duathlon (wish there would have been more)

Here are the total miles logged. I know people that ran as much as my bike and run combined. Maybe '09 will be better.

Total Run Miles - 690
Total Bike Miles - 1440

Looking forward to a better '09. Hope everyone has a Happy New Year!

Great job Arland, even though you were injured you still had some awesome times!! I'm not sure what I did, I might pull out my journal and post mine, but then I'd have to beat them :) 2009 starts a new year and you can't predict what will happen, but here's to a great year for both of us!

Awesome job, esp. considering the injuries. I wish there were more duathlons in AR, Texas and Tenn both have quite a few.
