Run!

On July 4th, we were in Atlanta
Running this...


Can I just say that it was my favorite race that I have ever run?!?!
60,000 Registrants, Over 100K spectators!
This T-Shirt
It's true.
In fact, we may have to make it an annual tradition!

But there's a sweeter story to this event.
When we signed up, I told myself...
"It's time that I beat Daniel. I train harder, faster and more than he does.
It's my time!"
Then I made these intentions somewhat public
when I was interviewed by Atlanta's Newspaper
Atlanta Journal Constitution (AJC).

Don't believe me?
Here's the link to the article.

In it I specifically state that I would like to run faster than Daniel.

At first I kept the article a secret.
But about a week before the race, I told him.

He didn't believe me.
So I showed him the article.

Then we ran.
And I won...by 6 minutes!
And I'm pretty sure that he won't let me off so easily next time!
