    Managed another half marathon PR this morning! 1:43:35, PR by almost 2.5 minutes anf finally ran a half under 8 minute pace.

    It was in Lewes, DE. Small race, about 450 runners including a 5k. A majority of the race is in a seashore state park (Cape Henlopen), a lot of the roads in there are a bit jacked up. Old paved roads in parts of the park were really rough and not as well used in the off season so there were a lot of small rocks. But besides that, sunny and 55-60 degrees made for a perfect morning for a run.
    My unofficial time was 1:43:35, my previous PR was last month with 1:45:58. I finished 29th overall and 4th in my AG, so no award, but I did get a couple damn good Bloody Mary's.

    Yes I'm bragging. Live with it. :p

    Thanks everyone! My feet are a bit tender this morning, I'll probably take a few days off any let them heal up.
    And again, they post lots of pics, but none of me. :(
