2013 after the leaves have fallen 20k: race photos & results

this was my second time running the "after the leaves have fallen" 20k - a race that i can only run when it's rescheduled from it's traditional first week of november date - which generally conflicts with the nyc marathon.  in 2011 the course ran counter clockwise.  this year the course ran clockwise around lake minnewaska.
aside from the spectacular scenery, this edition featured the most unusual weather conditions - which ranged from sun, rain, snow, sleet, hail - and lots of wind!  despite (or maybe as a result of) those conditions, i ran a 1:44:50 (unofficial).  that was a solid 4+ minutes faster than my 2011 finish (which featured beautiful, i.e. sunny, weather).
i'll write up a brief race report.
here are the race results.


the rest of my photos are up on facebook.
