congrats again! as you already know, i think you ran an excellent time. many people would kill for a 2-hour time (and i doubt they are battling back injuries, knee injuries, groin recovery...) :) to be 10-12 minutes off your pr in a half WITH all those recent aches and pains (and less than ideal training) is incredible!

awesome job rick!

Hellz ya... I knew you'd wind up doing it in the end... very respectable time too, especially considering how gimped up you've been...

Now you can stop worrying about the half marathon and heal up!!! Here's to a speedy recovery.
