The T-Town Half race has come and gone and I actually cut my PR by 7 minutes from my last half. 18 minutes off my first half. It was a typical Fleet Feet race in that it was well done with decent aid stops on the usual course.
My #RunningWife didn’t race it with me but she did join me for part of it as her weekend run. She caught up with me on the public running trail and ran that section with me and then peeled off once we got back to the closed off streets. Some people might call that banditing but she only ran on the publicly open running trail, she didn’t use any of the aid stations and she didn’t cross any start, finish or timing mats and she certainly didn’t steal a medal at the end.
So I’ll argue most strenuously with anyone that says that is banditing a race.
The route was the same as last year and most of it is the same as the Golden Driller race coming up in that it uses the Riverparks West trail for the majority of the race. Most flat course although the last mile or two does have some climb back up to the start in it.
This was also the debut race for our Chowder Dish Running Club shirts.
