2005 Caesar Rodney Half Marathon - Wilmington, DE

The 42nd running of the C.R. Half Marathon took place on April 13, 2005. Temperature was 36 degrees at the 9am start.

There were periods of sun, but also some chilly breezes. At 8am, our group mustered at Jack's place, overlooking the Brandywine, prior to jogging to the start at Rodney Square.

1,000 runners would participate, led by Senator Tom Carper, as always.

Rebel Team Takes 2nd Place

Pasta party at Ray's     K Drive burns up the course

Pasta in the Beer Room
Greg urged us to enter the coed "team" competition, and most of the team assembled at the Rebmaster's residence to load up on carbs the night before the race. 7 of us enjoyed pasta in the Beer Room, after the official dedication of the Dan Weintraub Beer Shelf. On the IR list, Jack drank beer to prepare him to run the Rebel cheering zone where the course passed in front of his house.

The Race
Your humble Rebmaster felt strong and was pleased with his 1:37:30 chip time. But our team captain Greg led the way. Next came Silent Mike, who earned himself a nice personal record and Kelly picked up some hardware for placing 3rd in her age group. Tony BBQ destroyed his own P.R. and was breathing down Ray's neck for the entire race. Rich decided to sit down twice on the course, and still found a way to post a decent time! The General cruised in with a respectable time, as did Dr. Dan and Coach Dave.
