Laurie Weiner (HF9266, DA3668, MM15681) – Sunday I ran Publix Gaspirilla Half Marathon. So much fun and pirate themed. This is my 3rd year running it. I ran the ultra Gold Challenge which is a 15k on Saturday and half marathon on Sunday. Perfect distances so you are not wasted the rest of the day.
Tc Mattoon (HF18537) – The Cowtown was a blast this weekend. We opted for the 5k followed by the half. Missed the picture Sunday morning 😢. The portion where we ran through all the photos of the fallen soldiers was so moving. Have to say the on course entertainment and support was fabulous. I forgot my hand held I usually run with but felt the water stops were more than sufficient.
Jessie Lovette Abraham (HF9690) – medalmonday completed half marathon #107 at the Publix Atlanta Half Marathon.. 17th year running this race and the hills are still disrespectful. I enjoyed seeing all the familiar faces, sharing the pavement with friends and cheering on all the other runners who are brave enough to accept the challenge of being part of this great event.
