Alex and Brian
(how's the weather down there dad :)

I LOVE the start of the race!


here we go!

the sights
the Bald Eagles were a huge hit!

This gentlemen was my motivation to get up cardiac hill.
And believe me, it worked!


This was Brian and I's 5th year of participating in the Peachtree Road Race. This 10K has become part of our 4th of July tradition. Although I've done the race in previous years, I've never run the whole thing. I was determined this year to run the full 6.2 miles. My son Alex stayed with me and helped me over my 4 mile hump. He was such a good motivator and kept me laughing all most the whole time.
(except for the one part around mile 5 that I thought I was going to throw up, that was SO NOT funny)
 I finished the race in 1 hour and 6 minutes.
My superman hubby wanted to beat 44 minutes and he did, with a time of 43 minutes and 55 seconds.
Yes he does ROCK!!
