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.

Great report and congratulations! The fall sounded scary, though. My only fall with a handled = surgery
Congrats on a new half PR. I'll read the report when I get to
Great motto for your running group!
Faster Than Your Couch!
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.

very nice! I like the catchy motto too
“Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up, it knows it must outrun the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the slowest gazelle, or it will starve. It doesn't matter whether you're the lion or a gazelle-when the sun comes up, you'd better be running.”
Good job!!! I still find the half marathon to be one of my favorite distances.
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.
