it's always fun when one of your favorite races gets "supersized" - in the sense on increased distance. this was the first edition of the "after the leaves of fallen" half marathon - which i've run a few times in it's earlier incarnation as a 20k. it's a fantastic, super scenic course. this year included a finishers beer glass - the first time i remember any sort of swag (including tee shirts) given out - the views were plenty enough reward!
as for the race, I came in well under my 2 hour target - 1:55:04. which itself was a couple of minutes off because I stopped at the top of the mountain to retie my laces - and take a few pictures :D
