The Peachtree Road Race - 2011
Oh, Billy Bob, I am still sore today from running the Peachtree yesterday. Not only is it a 6.2 mile heist, but there is a lot of other walking involved. From parking and getting to Marta, to getting to your group, then after you cross the finish line, you have to, of course, get your t-shirt. Then, there is the hellacious walk back to Marta and then to your car. So, all in all, you probably put in about 10 miles of running and walking. I was so sore I just wanted to crawl off in a hole somewhere. Fortunately, my husband gave me a little reprieve, he let me wait underneath a shade tree, while he jogged to the parking lot to get the car. But, I still logged a good 10 miles yesterday. Maybe I can do that half marathon, or not? I think not. It is an experience! However, I had rather be sitting on the beach somewhere or eating watermelon and fried chicken instead of battling the heat and the crowd.
