A Year In Running 2011

Each year on my birthday I like to take stock of my fitness achievements over the last 12 months. Here are the results of the events that I have taken part in over the last year.

2011 Maryville Race Against Violence 5K
Date: 03/27/2011
Location: Maryville University, St. Louis, MO
Distance: 5K (3.1 miles)
Time: 38:21
Pace: 12:22

This one was rough: it was my first race back after a 9 year hiatus due to a ruptured Achilles tendon in 2002.

2011 Pound the Pavement for Parks 10K
Date: 08/27/2011
Location: Wentzville, MO
Distance: 10K (6.2 miles)
Time: 1:13:42
Pace: 11:52

This was my first 10K ever. I felt really good about it. Had some friends at the finish line who took me out for breakfast at IHOP.

That’s it! Only two events this year. But I got the bug now and look forward to my first half marathon in October.
