Best Year Ever?(Part 1)

Danny's Perspective: As this year winds to an end, I'd like to take a look back at the training log of 2009. All told, I raced in 50 races-a nice even number ranging in distances from 1 mile to 88. miles. In that group of races included:
-5 snowshoe races(ranging from 5k to marathon distances)
-8 Trail Races(ranging from 5.5k to Ultramarathon distances)
-3 marathons(four including the snowshoe race)
-2 ultra-marathons(1 if you exclude the DNF at VT100)
-9 Triathlons
-13 5k's
-1 Winter Triathlon
-And a smattering of various distances in between.

I also established PR's in the mile(5:09), 5k(17:39), 5 miles(30:10), 1/2 marathon(1:25:47), 20 miler(2:18:25), marathon(3:01:47) and 50 miler(8:22).

Beyond racing, Amber and I hiked 11 4,000 footers this year, I was able to run the Monadnock Sunapee Greenway, we biked the Kanc, and went to Disney for Am's Birthday. All of these activities warrant a pretty decent year in and of themselves, but we also got married-which with our powers combined....

This will only be the start of many best years ever together!
