December races

I was surprised to read in Mike Quintal’s blog that his recent finish at the Mill City Relays was his first race EVER in December.  Of course that got me thinking about my stats.  I already track how many races per month but hadn’t figured out grand totals by month.  So I knew that the most races I’d ever done in December was 7 (in 2007) and I also knew by total number of races which months I’d done the most races in (11 in May of 1982).  What I didn’t know was how many races I’d done for ALL Decembers, so that is what I compiled.  I’ve run 1,162 races and hope that I’ll be over this most recent calf/Achilles injury to race again before THIS December is over.

Full stats by month below but here are some of the take-aways…
May is my most raced month with 138 races.
December is the least raced month with 76 races
I have my most wins in January with 47
I have my most PR’s (personal records) in both May and September
Road races lead the list in almost all months, the exceptions 45 Indoor track races in January, 51 Mountain races in June, and
44 XC races in November.
The most miles raced would be 834.69 in October (which makes sense with a lot of Marathons).
The fewest miles raced was December with 375.48
The lowest average miles per race was January with 3.51 miles (a lot of those were ¼ miles run in relays indoors)
