Better than all of you
I am boycotting the Tom King half until they stop letting the 3 hour half marathoners start thirty minutes before everyone else. I do not understand why a race director would want the entire field to weave through 200 lb TNTers three abreast.
I don't think they did that this year... they let the wheelchair participants start 5 minutes early but I think there were only three of them. Everyone else started right at 7:30.
Nice. My constant whining must have paid off.
It would be fun to get a bunch of people to wear "I am also Tom King" shirts.
"After the race was over, they had a really tasty breakfast buffet in the club level of the stadium. But, who am I kidding? Anything is delicious after a race. It could have been terrible I wouldn’t have known the difference."
LOL, that is soooo true! WTG on this race, congratulations on the new PR! You did great. I really like your goal of doing a race every month. I hope your tracking your progress, because at the end of the year, you're going to be amazed at how much your fitness will have improved.
Run until you're exhausted. Then keep on going.

They do that? I am VERY slow - about 2:30 for a half, sometimes a bit longer, when I did them - and I would not want an early start. I'd feel guilty as hell being in the way of the speedier runners.

Congrats on your race and your PR! I am familiar with Nashville and Tennessee, I have cousins all around that state. You are quite lucky if you got a relatively flat course somewhere in the Nashville area.
Nice report! Congrats on the PR!

What a really nice race report! You must be a teacher because it was wel structured, flowed perfectly, and was accompanied by the exact visuals and illustrations the reader would want to see!
Congrats on your PR and a successful race! RRs like these make me want to leave New England every once in awhile and run in other cities
So I'm currently sitting with a bag of frozen corn in my ass.
