Race reports are stories, frequently humorous, sometimes tragic, of what happens during the course of a race. I certainly didn't invent this concept -- there are lots of them out on the Internet. However, the others don't apply to me, so here is MY collection of race reports.
Traditionally, race reports are long-ish narratives, which describes my marathon and Ironman reports. However, it seems a waste to spend all that effort to write (and especially read!) all that stuff for shorter races. To that end, I've decided add a few other literary categories to my race reports. The following types of races end up in these categories:
Type of Report
|1/2 Marathon||Epic Poem|
|Sprint Triathlon||Hack Poetry|
|Olympic Triathlon||Free Poetry|
Don't for a moment mistake me for an actual poet (or narrative author for that matter). This is just a fun way to report about the races without boring everyone to tears.
