11/23 Autumnfest 8k, Knoxville TN 37:56, 132nd overall & 18th in 35-39 Age Group
50.7 Miles in 11 different sessions. 10 of the sessions were off the US Mainland. 8 of the runs were on the Island of American Samoa in the SOuth Pacific. These runs were shorter runs often run partially indoor and then outdoors, mainly because of the high heat and humidity. 2 of runs were on the cruise ship Explorer of the Seas. 1 of the cruise ship runs was on the running track outside while at the San Juan Port and the other cruise ship run was on the treadmill while docked at the St. Thomas port.
The one run that was on the mainland, was Autumnfest 8k which is run in honor of William “Papa” Adkins and is traditionally held on Thanksgiving morning. In addition to running the race, I also volunteered at race day registration.
2006 Total Mileage:
641.0 miles for the year. I have run my highest yearly total to date. Given the leaner mileage in December, I should end up with approximately 660 miles or so for the year.
