whomperz! this was very hard, but i am not surprised. i know i am pretty out of shape right now, but i decided to run this race today for a few reasons: 

1. jump into the atlanta racing scene -- see who's out there, see more of the city, maybe meet some friends? i just needed to get myself involved in something in hopes to feel more connected to the community and settled about the fact we live here now. it's been a tough transition for me, but it's getting better and better. i had fun today. 

2. see just how far my fitness has plummeted after a month-long hiatus, and see where i stand at this point in a race of this size (~3,000 runners).

3. the prize for first place was $1200. that's quite a purse for a 10 mile effort, and even though i knew i only had a ~0.2% chance of winning the race, i thought i would at least try (i'm still unemployed, so...). but, i was not even close.

not surprisingly in a city of this size (and a track club of 19,000+ members), there is plenty of competition here. i'm excited to get myself back into shape and see if i can compete with some of these women. the women's winner of today's race ran 1:02:47, and i think that is extremely impressive given the course.

my favorite thing about today: the crowd support. there were lots of people out on the course and they were enthusiastic and loud

starting line. warm and calm morning.

 

the facebook caption on this photo warned all runners that the medals weren't actually edible (when in fact they were -- i had four).

what is a monster's favorite game? swallow the leader. what do you call two witches who share a broom? broommates. what do you get when two skeletons dance around in a biscuit tin? noise.
