A proud CRR Paul Amer is shown here with the finishers’ medal around his neck after having completed the race in just under 2 hours and 4 minutes. Upon being told that Amer didn’t quite make the goal of two hours toward which self-proclaimed Creek Road Runners CEO CRR Matt Robinson had been coaching him, Robinson promptly decided to give up coaching runners and stick to what he does best—administration and global schmoozing.  Good decision, Matt.

Well done to all CRRs who braved yesterday’s half marathon.
