Battle of the Triad Half Marathon by ashby3 at Garmin Connect - Details

Good race well mostly - would I recommend it yes but it was not a great race - I ran well and felt good I had some pain behind and above my left knee in the muscle - not sure what that was - I PRed well I did at 13.1 miles - I got off the route and added .9 miles to the route - it was my own fault I was taking pictures as usual and missed a turn - I did get some good pictures - at 13.1 miles my Garmin showed me at 3:27 - I like the course but it would have helped to have more course monitors - between miles 6 and 7 the water stop was out of water - the folks were still there but no water - the police were great - I was the last to finish and was likely a number of minutes behind the other but they keep the course open did not try to push me and were just great - we had a chip on our bib's but there was no timing mat a the start nor at the finish there was a guy there who recorded my time on a laptop and I was told I would get an official finishing time - they did have a medal but it is one of the cheapest ones I have seen but ti is a medal none the least - it looks like something some as a generic medal but with a little plate on the back with the name of the race, date and finisher - cheap but OK - the thing which bothered me the most was I did not get a t-shirt that fits - I paid in advance two months before the race, my bib said I was to get a XL shirt when I got there I was told they ran out of XL shirt at the because to people who registered the day before got them all - it seems to me that is someone preregisters for a race that promises a shirt one should be set aside for them - when I tried to ask the race organizer about this she said we do not have any left and was told that she really did not care if I was unhappy about this - not a good way to start a run -

Congrats on the PR, Ashby! It was great to meet you in person. That business with your shirt is truly irksome. Crossing my fingers they do right by you. I'm still recovering after my own inner battles with the Battle. Glad that one's done and gone.

You certainly saved the day as far as photos go—you were the only one to get a shot of me on the course. Hope you don't mind but I used a cropped shot on my blog, credited to you of course.

See you at the races!
