My Personal Race Results

Racewalking is a long-distance discipline within the sport of athletics. Although it is a foot race, it is different from running in that one foot must appear to be in contact with the ground at all times. This is assessed by race judges, making it the most subjective of the disciplines in athletics. Typically held on either roads or on running tracks, common distances vary from 3000 metres (1.8 mi) up to 100 kilometres (62.1 mi).

Here are my race results, from my training logs, over the first 10 to 12 years that I actively raced. I started racing in early 1987 and petered out around 1997

Isn't the web wonderful. Any goof ball can have a web site and post totally useless information ;-). Here for your entertainment ;-)

Now if I can just start on the second ten year build up ;-)

( April, 2019 UPDATE ) OOPS!!! That last ten years didn't go as planned. Here we go a gain.

( December 28, 2008 UPDATE ) Officially start the next 10 years of race walking.

Lots of the comments where made when I entered these results in my training log and some additional comments when I entered them here on the web. Some I don't understand myself.

2019

New age group January 2, 2020 - 65-69. Perfect time to get back into it.

2013 to 2019

No Races / no training.

2012

Back training and plan on a few races this year. Races are my way of justifying training and a good benchmark for how the training is going.

2009 | 2010 | 2011

New age group January 2, 2009 - 55-59

Very limited training and no races for these few years.

1st long distance race. Just wanted to finish. 5 Km loops and old course at Fort Monmouth, NJ.

Laps: 1) 34:15 2) 33:52 3) 33:20 4) 34:03 5) 33:25 6) 34:14 7) 33:13 8) 36:03 Average: 34:04 and 10:57 pace.

I trained with Bill Norton who talked me into doing this race and gave me some great advice that helped me finish the race. Some advice I didn't take like the pre race meal of Beer and Muttin chops. I could barely walk the next day and on Bill's great advice forced myself out for a walk. This does help in the recovery.

Just browsing over both books, they look fantastic! I'm a guitarist and uke player for over 25 years and was thinking about writing a ukulele book but you've already written what I think are the best, most comprehensive and thorough books I've ever seen for the instrument. I just might end up buying every book you've written and I'll be giving my highest recommendation for your books to my friends and students. Thank you so much for taking the time to write such great books!Peter Rhee

Aloha, Curt, All I can say is WOW! What you have accomplished is simply incredible! All the bestGlen Hirabayashi, The Aloha Boys

Folks, if you haven't stopped by Curt's site, do so right now! ..And get his books, they are fantastic. This guy knows his stuff and is able to pass it along too.Alan Johnson Proprietor, The 4th Peg

I can highly recommend Curt's Uke books — I have four of them and they are excellent.fatveg — Portland
