Atlanta Hot Chocolate 5K

I'm playing catch up since Kelly & I have been out of town.  Last weekend, a week ago yesterday, me and my friend Dawn did the Atlanta Hot Chocolate 5k run.  We left on Saturday afternoon, headed to Atlanta to get our race packets, and then hung out.  We did a little shopping and had dinner then headed to our hotel to just relax.  With kids this is something you can really take for granted!  We really just talked and watched T.V. but we had a fun time.  Sunday we had to be at Turner Field by 6:30!  We were thinking we were probably crazy at this point...getting up VERY early to run 3 miles!  It was so much fun though.  We had about an hour to walk around and check everything out.  Everything was very well organized and very upbeat for such an early morning.  There were about 19,000 people there so needless to say there was a lot going on!  Some were running the 15K but we were doing the 5k with a little over 9,000 people!  Everyone was grouped into corrals to help space things out and we got to start in corral C so we didn't have to wait too long.  It was neat to run in downtown and we both did great!  I have to say I was proud of both of us.  Now we have to sign up for our next fun run!!

6:30...ready to run!

Finished!!  Showing off our big hot chocolate mug
