2011 – Season in Review

So the season had of course ups and downs.

Soccer Team “To Be Determined” had a good run into the play-offs only to be beaten in the first round.

Cycling saw a PR in the 200K and the finishing of my first official Century ride. It also saw my failure in the 300K

This year’s marathon – the National Marathon – was virtual disaster. Virtual because I did finish.

I ran 3 track miles – none near fast enough.

In the Trail/Cross Country Category, I had one slow 10 miler and an all surface PR at the Playworks Run For Recess 5K.

I ran three different relay races. SRR-Wind took 3rd at the Club Cup; Team Bonnie and Clyde took 4th at the MDI Marathon; and, Herbert and The Exotic Dancers did well at Lake Winni.


I had set three major goals before the season. The first was the National Marathon, which was not a great showing. But, any finished marathon is a good marathon.

The second was the Cape Cod Half Marathon Trilogy. I ran my two fastest half marathons and won the 211-225 lb Clydesdales in each of the three and will get a jacket for the completion.

The third was MiamiMan. Dominated this!
