JFK 50 Miler

April 9th, 2010 - Training - Lowell, MA - 3.1

Day 99 - Took it indoors on the treadmill with the cold rain falling outside tonight. Looks like a nice weekend with only some race timing (Saturday) and racing (Sunday) on the docket.

Since it's been quiet for me running/racing-wise, I'll use this opportunity to allow someone else talk about their own racing experience. The following is a snapshot of fellow GLRR Scott Graham's tremendous 2009 season, at the age of 50! Here's a snapshot of his 2009 racing experience:

Below is a list of all the races I competed in over the 2009 season. There were some HIGH points, Boston Marathon and there were some low points, a completely burnt out run in Plymouth, NH. I raced on foot, bike, snowshoe, road, trails, snow, across lakes, up mountains and across states. I fell in almost every snowshoe race. I gave it all I had in every race except for 1, once again it was the race in Plymouth, NH where I was so beat up I just took it easy and mailed in the effort. All in all it was a great year for me having turned 50 and putting it all on the line. Below is and a bunch of statistics:
