I started out Peachtree morning driving to Ansley Mall to park. I normally leave my car there and walk to the Art Center MARTA station (MARTA is Atlanta's rapid rail system) to catch the train to the start of the race. By the way it is about a 2 mile walk.

This year I decided to do something different. I went into Starbucks and got a cup of coffee then came outside and contacted Uber on my iPhone app. Uber came and picked me up and took me to the start. Nice relaxing morning, a cup of coffee and a nice ride to the start.  Think I will do it again next year.

I started in Time Group J this year, which is pretty far back in the race. I didn't have any pressure to run fast, so I didn't. In fact I ran about 10 minutes slower than last year. My official time was 75:22, that is about a 12 min pace.

There were weather concerns this year, the Yellow caution flag was up at the start and by the time I got to mile 3 of the race the flag had been changed to Red. I guess that was because the humidity was at about 90% and the temp was 75º. Good excuse to slow down, but I was already running slow so the humidity didn't really bother me that much.

I briefly attended two after P'Tree parties, one that the Atlanta Track Club had at Piedmont Park then the second one at Ansley Mall that Jeff Galloway had after the race.

I am planning on starting a 5K training plan in order to get a little speed back. Just a little.
