2016 Race Recap

What a year! I am still at a loss as to how to put my year into words, so here are some statistics instead 😀

364* days

38 EVENTS

95km // 15 hours of Fun Runs.

215km // 120 hours of endurance events.

425km // 115 hours of Obstacle Races.

That’s a total of 735km/457 miles and 250 hours!

TRANSPORTATION

You could say that I spent a fair amount of time travelling this year. The stats prove it…

125,335km // 165 hours by plane

8,480km // 115 hours by car

6,250km // 75 hours by bus

750km // 10 hours by train

Totalling 140,815km and 365 hours.

I visited 5 countries – Australia, New Zealand, USA, China and Canada.

I raced in three Australian States (Western Australia, Queensland and Victoria), and eight US States (Hawaii, Texas, California, Arizona, Utah, Arkansas, Florida and New York).

ACCOMMODATION

After a few quick calculations I realised that I slept in 64 different places during 2016 including:

  • 20 queen/double beds;
  • 16 bunk beds;
  • 6 single beds;
  • 6 planes (overnight);
  • 4 sofa beds;
  • 4 couches;
  • 3 tents;
  • 2 busses;
  • 1 train;
  • 1 car; and
  • Various parts of the ground in the Adirondack mountains.

Not bad for one year.

*Thanks to the time-travelling that I did in 2016 my year only consisted of 364 days. May 16 and November 7 didn’t exist for me as I was on a plane, crossing the international date line. There were also two days in December that were shortened thanks to flying back to Australia from Hawaii.

Despite losing two full days, I did have three extended days (in February, August and November) when I flew back in time to Hawaii. But as far as the calendar goes, my year only had 364 days.
