2008, 2009 vs. 2010 Totals

Me running in the Seattle Marathon 2010
2010 wasn’t the best year for me in a number of ways… sigh… but it was a great year for my training, racing and for expanding my knowledge of Marathon and Triathlon. I received my TnT Coach Certification from an idol of mine, Jack Tupper Daniels, I have nearly completed my coach certification from the AFLCA (group fitness with a portable equipment designation) and I have reached “triathlon coach in training” status from the NCCP. I completed my first Olympic Distance Triathlon and now have my sites set on a Half-Ironman. I track my workouts at and these are my yearly totals for 2008, 2009 and 2010 (barring me going out for a big ride or run later today).









Run (trails, track & treadmill)

1751.0 km

1512.6 km

2100.2 km

Bike (Road & trainer)

472.4 km

1527.9 km

2122 km

Swim (Pool & open-water)

41475.0 m

28775.0 m

65118.4 m

I pretty much kicked my own ass this year. On top of what you see above, I also spent 81:20 doing resistance training and another 20-ish hours doing various other cardio activities (tennis & hockey). I lost approximately 15 lbs, dropped 2 pants sizes and put on a noticeable amount of lean muscle. Not bad for a (nearly) 40-year-old chump with a funky ticker.

2010 Races: Maui Oceanfront Marathon – Jan 24th Edmonton Hypothermic Half Marathon – Feb 28th Vancouver Marathon (on-course coach) – May 2nd Seattle Rock & Roll Marathon – June 26th Tour de L’Alberta – July 25th St.Albert Starrt Triathlon – Aug 8th Alberta Challenge Olympic Triathlon – Aug 22nd San Francisco Nike Women’s Marathon (on-course coach) – Oct 17th New York ING Marathon – Nov 7th 2011 Races (subject to change): Edmonton Hypothermic Half Marathon – Feb 13th Goodlife Fitness Toronto Marathon – May 15th Ottawa Marathon (on-course coach) – May 29th San Diego Marathon (on-course coach) – June 5th Great White North Half-Ironman – July 3rd Goodlife Fitness Victoria Marathon – Oct 9th I have my sights set on qualifying for the Boston Marathon this year. I ran a 3:50:51 in NYC and I need to do better than 3:20:59 to qualify. This may be a lofty goal but I think I can at least get close. I’m going to try anyway. So, here’s to 2011 being even faster, stronger, healthier, leaner and even more fun than 2010 was. Woohoo!
