3 Bests – What aspects of the race did you like the most?

  1. Atlanta’s Marathon Weekend – I loved all of the excitement and hype the Olympic Trials brought to the weekend experience. Olympic hopefuls were everywhere. My kids were able to learn more about the Olympics and have fun with that aspect.
  2. Very well organized – it was a large race with tons of spectators. Atlanta Track Club did an amazing job keeping it running smoothly.
  3. Swag – loved my shirt, metal, expo goodies, and the race route fuel was very well done.

Not so much – Aspects of the race that didn’t do it for you
Hills – love/hate. There were more than I expected. Ha!

Highlights of your race – What did you do well and enjoy about your race in particular?
My goal for this race (my first half in 10 years and 3 kids) was to run the whole thing and finish strong. I did that! I loved running through gorgeous and historical parts of Atlanta!
