Thanks to Metro Public Works and Volunteers

Thanks to all those at Metro Public Works and the volunteers who were picking up the litter we runners left behind us today at the Country Music Half and Full Marathon. I dropped quite a few paper cups while trying to stay cool and hydrated during the race.

Metro Public Works maintains the course at no cost to the organizers (just us taxpayers).

I noticed that the start was less littered this year than last year. Thanks to the runners for not dropping trash everywhere at the start.

    Why can’t runners either:
    -hold onto your litter until you pass a bin
    -have a small pocket on your clothing to carry your litter?

    As a runner myself, I can say that doing this will not slow you down. In fact it may give you a little smug boost!
