2014 Racing Statistics

By , December 20, 2014 9:22 am

My 2014 racing year is over which means… it’s time for one of my favorite posts of the year to put together – the Yearly Racing Statistics post! Yay! (You can see 2012 here and 2013 here. AND! You can use this list to put this information together, for yourself, if you’d like).

Putting these stats together has taken some digging the last two years, but this year I tracked all of this information immediately after each race, in spreadsheets or on my race recaps page (I sure do love me some spreadsheets!!!). So this year, all I had to do was grab the info and update the graphics! I also love me some Photoshop!

Observations:

  • I did two less races than last year, but really, quite a few less running races, since 3.5 of the races were cycling events!
  • And no “new” running distances raced this year! Again, the “new-to-me” stuff was all cycling. 
  • I did one more half marathon than 5K this year (7 vs 6). Last year I ran 12 5Ks and 6 half marathons!
  • I did three races in my “new” state this year! I am targeting two to three new states in 2015!
  • My “races per month” chart makes it seem like me saying summer is my off-season was a bunch of baloney… but it wasn’t. Those numbers are high because I did a cycling event in June, July, and August. Summer is a good month for cycling!
  • It’s interesting I raced almost the same amount of times in Wisconsin (8) as in Illinois (10)! And it’s sad I only did one trail race this year. Last year I ran six trail races! Gotta get back to it in 2015! 
  • Ha ha, I definitely ran less free races this year (3.5 this year versus 6 in 2013), and that shows up in the amount spent on racing!!! Although, my cost per mile raced went down, because of cycling miles.
  • I was pleased to place three times as a 30 year-old this year, even though they were super small races (<— like I’d place in any other type of race!).
  • My last race of 2012 was on December 16th, with GinaMy last race of the year in 2013 was on December 15th, with Gina.  My last race this year was on December 14th, with Gina… fun! Guess I know who I will be with on December 13th, 2015!

    Wow, you do an amazing job of keeping track of so much data! I have all of my race dates & times but that’s about it…I don’t even keep track of the places or who I ran with (if it was more than 1-2 people). I LOVE your graphic. I might try to do something like this, only not as detailed since I don’t keep track! 😀

    Wow! I love that graphic – really well done! I don’t keep track of anything, perhaps I should…
