Santa Rosa Marathon – Boston Qualified!

I’ve been training hard since mid-May, logging 20-50 miles per week, and Sunday morning it all came together.  I ran a 3:08:07 at the Santa Rosa Marathon, a new PR by 32 minutes, and qualified for Boston!  It was really hard.  I’m really proud of myself.

Tuesday Night Twilight criterium #6

I raced Bike Monkey’s Tuesday Night Twilight series for the second time. I missed a few races while recovering from pneumonia, which I had during my first race but didn’t know about.  I had a fun time, was smarter with my exertions, and finished a very close second place at 31.5mph and 766W!

  • Duration: 30 mins
  • Speed: 22.9mph avg, 31.5mph max
  • Heartrate: 174bpm avg, 196bpm max
  • Est Avg Power: 255W

Tuesday Night Twilight criterium

I raced my first criterium yesterday evening at Bike Monkey’s Tuesday Night Twilight series. I had fun but was over-eager, screwed up my racing strategy, spent too much energy early, and threw away a podium spot.  I coasted over the line in something like 10th place.

  • Duration: 30 mins
  • Speed: 23.1mph avg, 31.1mph max
  • Heartrate: 176bpm avg, 194bpm max
  • Est Avg Power: 247W
