2009 - The year in numbers

So, I'm a little behind in writing my "year in review" for 2009 - better late than never, yes? I'm late for everything and being on time is NOT one of my New Years Resolutions - because it would get broken immediately. So, rather than just do a summary of what happened in 2009 (and it was a busy year!), it would be fun to see how the numbers of 2009 stack up. In no particular order:

1 - I did one Ironman last year - Ironman Florida

13 - we closed on our house on the 13th of November - Friday the 13th, good thing we're not too superstitious!

5 - I did five half-ironmans last year - Kinetic, Black Bear, Mooseman, Calgary, and Savageman.

6:34:44 - my slowest half-ironman time (Savageman)

5:47:08 - my fastest half-ironman time (Mooseman)

11:43:42 - my time at Ironman Florida

2 - I visited two countries outside of the US in 2009: Nepal and Canada - technically three countries if you count the overnight spent in Qatar on the way back from Nepal.

10 - I went to my 10 year high school reunion in 2009.

643.5 - the number of miles I raced in 2009, including all triathlons and road races.

23 - the 23rd day of September was when my best friend Erin had her first baby, Reagan, who also happens to be my goddaughter!

4 - there were four of us at my parent's house for Thanksgiving - myself, Mark, my mom and my dad. Five if you count the dog.

7 - there were seven of us at at the Lauver Lair in California for Christmas - myself, Mark, Allie, Jackie, Stephanie, and my mom-in-law and dad-in-law.

102 - the number of pages I wrote for my two final papers for my graduate degree.

3 - the average number of hours of sleep I got per night for about two weeks straight when finishing said papers.

I think that about sums up the year. I wonder what sort of numbers 2010 will hold?

Love it! And yes, it is a good thing that being on time is not a New Year's Resolution. It's good to see that some things never change! :-)

Hehehe. I thought about you when I wrote that, I remember in college you saying "Caroline will show up... eventually." Miss you and Reagan lots!
