2010 Survey Results

After a long day in the sun at the 2010 Crossfit Games in LA, I've flopped into my Aeron in the RV, which is parked near my old stomping grounds in Hollywood. I found an amazing parking spot right near the Farmer's Market that has no street cleaning and is always empty at night. You'd be surprised how important things like street cleaning become when you live in an RV. Anyway, I don't have enough energy left to pull myself out of my chair, so it's time to tally up the survey results from a couple weeks ago and share what I learned.

Life Nomadic

This one was totally unexpected. Around a third of the people who responded said that they want more Life Nomadic. To be totally honest, I didn't know people were that interested in it. The site, when it was separate, never developed the same sort of following this site has.

End of Track Season

On Imported Blog

I had an post for my end of cross country season, so I thought I should probably have one for track as well.

I honestly could have not asked for a better season. I didn't even do well - I'm not close to being one of the elite private school runners in the city. I'm hoping I'll be next year. I say this season was so good because of my improvement. Simply from cross country season I shaved off over 25 seconds off my mile time. That's huge for half a year, especially when it's going from a sub 5:30 to a sub 5:00 mile. Again, that's not even close for being one of the top private school runners, but it's amazing when I compare to it where I was.

I must be realistic. I do wish I was a sub 4:40 miler, but that is almost impossible from where I was only a few months ago. The improvement I made in the little time I had was phenomenal and I'm proud of it. My 1600m pace for my 3200m personal best was faster than my fastest mile during cross country.

I can't wait till next year, though. Cross Country and Track. I only have one year left. I'll run in college, but I won't be running for the NCAA. I want to make a name for myself, though, next year. I want to continue the improvement I've made in the past year and a half and go all out next year. I want to be an elite private school runner in the city, maybe even in the state. It's going to be hard, and the biggest barrier is going to be time. I may just not have enough time to shave off that many seconds.
