The race didn't start until 2 p.m. so I had plenty of time to catch up on some sleep, get my upper body workout in, and go to church before running.
My pre-race pick in the parking lot. CHEESE!
After picking up my number I decided to skip the porta-potty line - gasp - and headed over here ...
You've got a LOVE a race that has a Tweet Up Tent.
I left my mark with the others and went to find my dear friend Shameeka - The Broke Socialite.
Shameeka and her husband, Eric, are contestants in the Atlanta's Biggest Loser Couples competition.
After wishing them luck and connecting with some of my church friends I headed to the start.
The race started and finished at Turner Field, home of the Atlanta Braves.
It's always fun to run under the Olympic rings. A girl can dream, right?
The race had two water stations and entertainment all the way like this band. They were gettin' it!
Right before the end of the race the Homer, the Braves mascot, cheered everyone in!

My unofficial time was 33:30. It was a fun run for a great cause; and I'm glad I got to participate.
