2005 Race Summary

I don't have any more races in my 2005 schedule, so now may be a good time to summarize the year's races. If my count is correct, I registered for 23 events this year. I didn't meet my ambitious time goals for most of my race distances, but I did make some gradual improvements this year. I bought a new bike, and a new wetsuit, and used them at my first attempts at some longer multisport events. It definitely was a year of firsts!

Road races: 280 kilometers or 174 miles total
5Ks: 5 @ 30:28 (PR) to 40:19
10Ks: 2 @ 1:04 (PR) to 1:14
15K: 1 @ 1:51 (my first)
10M: 3 @ 1:52 (PR) to 2:01
Half marathon: 3 @ 2:37 (PR) to 2:49, 1 DNS
25K: 1 @ 3:25 (my first)
Marathon: 2 @ 5:59 to 6:33

Cycling events:
Cycling metric century: 1 DNF, 1 DNS (my first two)

It sure is. My racing year for 2005 looks like this:

1 Sprint Triathlon
1 Duathlon
1 Century Ride
1 Ironman

Still, not too shabby!! Can I count training as races??? I didn't have any time goals...

Good job with all the races.

Is it just me, or does anyone else find it interesting that your multisport race distances almost add up to Iron Distance. (3888m ~= 2.4 miles)

Frankly, I'm dissapointed you couldn't have squeezed in an extra 20 miles somewhere on the bike to help me with my point :-)

Yeah, I saw that and it scared me. To think that I have to swim as far at IMFL '06 as all my triathlons of 2005 put together!?!? Uh oh!!
