Running & Roadfood (feat. a Ben's Chili Bowl Half Smoke!) Thu, 10/18/12 9:45 AM (permalink)
As some of you may know, I took up distance running three years ago to get in better shape but I still enjoy Roadfooding from time to time.  I love meeting friends old and new and indulging in some fried chicken, pizza, sandwiches and all of that fantastic food when I can.  I've posted a number of Trip Reports over the years in an attempt to showcase my love for both running and Roadfood.  Well, imagine my surprise when reading the Gothamist website I found a link to an article on the DCist website about a "very special" half marathon coming up in Washington, D.C. on Saturday Nov. 3rd.  
Here's the link to the article:  http://dcist.com/2012/10/.lf_and_half_marathon.php
And a link to the race website:  http://www.halfandhalfmarathon.com
 
I think I've looked at the review for Ben's and some of Buffetbuster's beautiful Trip Report photos of those half smokes more times than I can remember, but I'm not so sure I could run 6.55 miles, down a chili smothered half smoke and chips, then run another 6.55 miles!  
 
Just wanted to share in case anyone is interested.  
Cheers, Billyboy
