I ran the Atlanta Mission 5K with several running buddies Saturday, Feb. 18. I've run this race before, and I've run it when it was really, really cold out, which brings home the goal of ending homelessness. The weather was really nice this year, other than a little drizzle about half way through the race.
Ready to run!
Finisher's medalSo this race didn't hand out finisher's medals, but you could buy one for $5. When I saw them, I decided I did want one. As my friend Angela, who also got one, said, it's only $5 and the money goes to the Atlanta Mission.
I'm glad to have gotten out to run the race, but I must say I'm glad I don't have a race next weekend. Of course, then I'll probably be feeling better and will want to get out and run!
Maybe I can make it my mission to feel better AND go for a run next weekend.
