RR: 2013 Annadel Half Marathon (Read 27 times)


Ultra Cowboy

    Abstract: I ran the 4th annual Annadel Half Marathon trail run on Saturday for a finish time of 2:14:15.5 This was good enough to be my new PR for all time in the 4 years of running this race.  Very good considering my taper was non-existent.  I beat last years’ time by over six minutes. I was pleased that I was able to run a 55 mile week with great friends, and enjoy the camaraderie of race day. Annadel Half Marathon is definitely a destination race worthy of any serious trail runner’s time.

    Apparently I took the Motto “Hills Spills and Dirty Thrills” literally.

      Great report and congratulations! The fall sounded scary, though. My only fall with a handled = surgery

          Congratulations, you pulled off your race really well. Seems like the half marathon distance is just the right recovery distance for you, with the benefit of even setting a new PR.

          Run for fun.

              Uh oh... now what?

                Yay for running in Annadel.  My wife's sister used to live on the border.  They had a gate into the park.  Incredible place of quiet in the midst of so much urban sprawl.

                 

                Good running--that group stuff would be fun to be in.  Nice looking shirt.
