I've been mulling over some PR thoughts lately.
How long can one consider them current?
Can they have birthdays?
What's the expiration date and when do they transition into lifetime-bests?
In the past year, I've ran 4 half marathons...most of which haven't been anywhere close to my current PR of 1:27:53. That was ran in September of 2011.
Since then I've had quite a few challenges, some self-destructive races and training regimes, and two 13.1 races where I just barely squeaked in under 1:30.

With the next half marathon now about 3 weeks away and my current personal best at this distance nearing it's second birthday, can't help but wonder if this PR is now just old news.
PR's, what's your take?
How long do you consider them current?
