2013 - The Year in Numbers.... and looking forward to 2014

Looking back on 2013 (and being an accountant), biggest year I've had before in terms of volume and accomplishments.

Using numbers...

75 Miles swimming
967 Miles running
2,813 Miles biking

2013 Race Results, including personal bests for Marathon, Half Marathon and 10k. 1st half and full Ironman races as well:

Looking forward to 2014, I've entered a bunch races but will probably not do the high volume of training as I saw in 2013:

3/30  Philadelphia Love Run

5/18  American Zoefingen Short Course Duathlon

5/25  Boston Run to Remember Half Marathon

6/8    Eagleman Half Ironman

7/13 Half Ironman

9/8 Long Course Crazy

Goals and focus areas for the year are to improve my swim, spend more time on strength training and maintain a high level of fitness getting ready for Ironman Lake Placid in 2015. I'm also going to try coach myself using Joe Friels training manual and the Virtual Coach on Training Peaks.

Writing this a few weeks into the year, its been a mixed start with a cold hitting last week. But I am recovered now and feeling well rested. Time to start hitting the 10 hour training weeks!

Ironman Finish Line - Go to clock time 13:16:19 to see me finish
