The Unspoken Rules of Being a Badass: A Runner's Guide

2011 Half Marathon Championship Male and Female Winners (Results)

Here is a quick rundown of the male and female winners from the 2011 Half Marathon Championship in Houston on Saturday.

4. Fasil Bizuneh, 1:02:47
5. Jason Lehmkuhle, 1:02:49

Ryan Hall was leading at the 13 mile mark before Trafeh unleashed a Michael Phelps like kick over the  last tenth of a mile to beat Hall by three seconds.  It was a tight finish among the top five with just 32 seconds separating the group.

The same course will be used next year for Olympic Marathon qualifying.
