Recap of my run at the Peachtree Road Race #ajcprr
This flag was hanging just before the actual start line.
At the start, I took a photo of all the runners behind me. That was a LOT of runners. Supposedly Meb was behind me somewhere. The goal was to watch him pass me by. I can honestly say I never saw him.
This is all the runners that were ahead of me by the time I hit the last big stretch. The course is always hard but oddly enough enjoyable. I missed seeing the 1 mile & 4 mile markers. Oddly, that actually helped. Along the route, though, the spectators and volunteers make it fun. I will admit that I love seeing the patients from the Shepherd Center out cheering us on. It motivates me to run that much harder.
I didn't get any photos of me at the finish on my phone. I'll have to wait until the official photos are available before I can see/share those. After getting to the MARTA train station, though, I had to get out my Breeze card. Sweat & paper transit cards don't necessarily agree. Some of the sprinklers I ran through may not have helped either. Fortunately, it still worked to get me home.
All the effort goes to the shirt and the bling. For those that haven't run, the bling costs extra, the shirt comes with the run. Now to figure out how to display it.
Next run is the Decatur/DeKalb 4 miler that the Atlanta Track Club is hosting. 2 weeks to get my act together and actually work for it.
