Admittedly, I’m a bit of a numbers nerd. I believe that with the digitization of, well, nearly everything the ability to work with and understand data is the path to business success in the future. OK, back to running.
I kept a detailed spreadsheet of my running in 2010 and below is a sample of some of the statistics. I could have gone a lot further with my analysis, but things are a bit too busy right now. Hope you enjoy it regardless.
By all accounts, 2010 was my best running year ever. I ran more miles than ever (2,288), won my first race (and two more), and successfully moved up to the 50 mile distance. These successes are due to two main reasons:
- I stayed healthy
- I worked my butt off
- 2007: 1,412
- 2008: 1,244
- 2009: 1,883
- 2010: 2,288
How far is 2,288 miles? Far enough to get me from Berkeley to Louisville!
Needless to say, I’m very pleased with how my running went in 2010. I really felt like I made a leap as a runner. And thus, the bar has also been raised for 2011. I’m excited!
Good luck to everyone this year!
