2011 Peachtree Road Race Report

This year marked my 6th year in the event, and I am happy to say that for a fun-run 10k I finished in under 1 hour! My training this year has absolutely been in the abyss. Much of that has to do with a double dose of strep throat early in the year (January and February) followed up with a couple of sinus infections in late March and again in May. This simply has not been my year.

I had hoped to have a better showing in the Peachtree, and had actually made a friendly wager with Andy Phillips at work for lunch to the winner. The tale of the tape was as follows:

BIB # Name Chip Time Overall Place Gender Group Age Group
11274 Mike Schubert 59:50 11891 8530 1189
12701 Andy Phillips 59:24 11369 8201 778

In all, it was a great day and a great race. Interestingly, Andy and I started from roughly the same spot among the 60,000 runners. We were right at the front of time group C – he as on the right side and I on the left. We never saw each other though.

With that said, my training is cranking back up. I don’t like to lose!

Also of note, I have moved to a new provider – WordPress. I am tired of keeping up with updates for my software, dealing with a hosting provider, and only having a limited number of templates (most of the WordPress imitators anyway) to choose from. So I bit the bullet and came over here to the land of dominance. We’ll see how it goes. The biggest benefit is that all of my posts dating back to 2004 are now reunited in one location.
