Taking my love of visuals one step too far. I recently completed my eighth 50k and eighth beer mile within 3 days of either other. So it inspired me to create a chart. Not sure the chart tells a story, other than I can lose all sense of time figuring out how to put hours on left axis and minutes on the the right.
I've been thrilled to get a little faster each year I run the Trail Nerds Alternate Chili Run. I looked for fun way to make a data visualization out of the finish times. So I had the idea of showing my finish time in comparison to the rest of the runners. Photos are courtesy of Mile 90 Photography.
Check out my race report of this race from 2016.
The Psummer Psycho got me curious about my finish times over the years. Here's a side-by-side comparison of all my marathon and 50k finish times, so far.
After reviewing this, a good goal for me to chase looks like running a 50k in under 6 hours, so that I have a 50k faster than the Big Elk Marathon.
