"Racing teaches us to challenge ourselves. It teaches us to push beyond where we thought we could go. It helps us to find out what we are made of. This is what we do. This is what it's all about."

2011 RacePacket Grand Prix Series Awards Night

I have to admit it, I've been quite sloppy in updating this blog on the last couple of weeks, but since I haven't raced lately there was not much to write.

Maybe the last important event I took part was the awards dinner for the 2011 racePacket Grand Prix Series.

The series is scored for both an open division and in separate age groups: 29 and under, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59 and 60 and over. The runners with the most points at the end of the year receive cash awards. To be eligible, a runner must compete in at least five series races. For the open division, the first place runner is assigned 20 points, the second place runner is assigned 19 points, etc. The more races in the series that a runner race, the more points he/she get but only the best 8 races count toward the competition.

This 2011 series was the 15th edition of the Grand Prix and I'm really happy for my overall win and to have my name side by side with some of the best runners of the area that won the series in the past (such as Ted Poulos, Craig Chasse, Aaron McCommons, Jeff Leuenberger, Christopher Banks, Chris Farley).

Here's the Overall Male results.
Here's the Overall Female results.
