Any Runners in the house?
#14
I've run the Peachtree Road race 10 yrs in a row. It's the world's largest 10k held right here in The Atl. My 10th (and last) was in 2008. I was in the midst of battling breast cancer and ran it bald headed (which was HUGE for me to do). When I was on my last 10th of a mile two ladies came running up beside me and said they were both survivors too and wanted to cross the finish line w/ me.

That finish line symbolized a lot more for me than my t-shirt was just around the corner (lol) it symbolized I was / am winning the fight. I cried like a baby when I crossed too. :D

I've run several 5k's and have won a few metals and plaques. Also did a half marathon.

Now I just run to keep slim and trim - no races since that last Peachtree. None can top that one anyway.
