Thank you Sean. I have been fighting with a beginning  achilles tendinitis in one leg and knee pain in the other (due to changing of running gait as a result), so todays result was extra sweet.

I did though go out too fast and "hit the wall ?!" after 16k resulting in having to lower the speed for the last 5k. I wonder what it can amount to if I actually followed a training plan.

Not my best performance but I got it done at the Rock and Roll Raleigh Half Marathon

http://runsyrun.com/2015/04/14/rock-and-roll-raleigh-half-marathon-april-12-2015/
Being the 'World's Largest Running Series', the Rock and Roll Series attracts over 500,000 people taking part in 26 American cities each year.  This year I just had to be a part of that.  I also lo...

I'm Never Going to Run Again
Last year was a big year for my running.  I greatly improved my speed and endurance which helped me make great strides (no pun) when it came to placing in my age group.  I secretly vowed to repeat or better my 3rd Place AG finish in the 2015 Emmaus 4 Miler,...

Richland Creek Run. 5 miler on my side of town that benefits Greenways for Nashville. My best time ever on this race - just about ten seconds off my PR for 5 miles.

Hmm. At 41, I'm not so sure about that. However, I've set more PRs in the past two years than in my previous 20 years of running. I think it has a lot to do with sobriety. . . .😊

60 thoughts everyone has during their first event: http://bit.ly/1yVfk39

The great thing about running is that it leaves us a lot of thinking time, and regardless of what weird and wonderful things your brain might conjure up, we're pretty sure you'll have thought these during your first race....

1:55:42 for Kingston Classic Half Marathon. Not bad for a training run.

What a disgrace! The poor runners. 
Runners taking part in a 10km are mistakenly sent on a 3km detour after a marshal left their post.

+Alasdair Graham yeah, you're probably right. Could still be a full refund. If they offer a refund without calling it a goodwill gesture that could be interpreted as admitting that they were negligent, which might lead to successful and expensive injury claims if runners hurt themselves as a result of the mishap. Pure speculation on my part.

It always irritates me when race organizers get fancy with results so that the popular local runners are sure to get an award. So which is it, Senior Grand Maser or Grand Master for a 50 y/o? I was awarded 3rd in Grand Masters at 41 y/o behind a 50 y/o. While in the female category, the 50 y/o is listed as a Senior Grand Master. In most races, 40+ is Masters and 50+ is Grand Masters. This time, they gave Masters awards to 30+ which consisted of three guys who are pretty accustomed to winning Overall, but when Scott W.and his 4:50 pacers show up it's a game changer. Oh well. At least I got another RCR coffee mug to add to my collection.

This wasn't as bad as the race I ran in Port Richey, FL a couple of years ago - the Frankenfooter 5k. They took a 20 minute pause during the award presentation to make sure that the locals got awards by recalculating everything. They even asked someone to return their trophy. I came in second overall in that race and was somehow awarded 1st in AG!? I saw it coming, though as my friend and I were the only two people not from Port Richey, FL.

I had a great run at the Richland Creek 5 miler today. The fastest I've ever run this race before. The race has really grown, which is great because it benefits the Greenways for Nasheville. It brought out some really fast people. Check out my 5.0 mi Run on Strava: http://app.strava.com/activities/279009305

Is this the best medal you have ever seen? If you have a better one I would love to see it!

King Henry VIII doing a mobot on a chunky, weighty gold medal what more do you want?!
