Race Day Eve
If you are from Atlanta, you are either for or against the nickname "Hotlanta" for your fair city. I have noticed a great deal of division on whether the nickname is funny and cute or completely annoying. But, I will say, that it did not come about without just cause. This city is in the 80's!
I just drove in from the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina where; with the recent celebration of my favorite holiday, Daylight Savings, the sun is high in the crisp, clear, spring sky a little bit later in the day. This allows those of us night owls who like to play outside enjoy the day just a little bit longer.
Here in Atlanta, however, the ushering in of Spring has brought the temperature much higher than I am used to for this Marathon race weekend. So, to nurture myself, I'm trying to stay calm, eat good food and drink A LOT of water. Here are some photos of how the city of Atlanta is preparing for the big day tomorrow.
The weather forecast says it will be about 70 degrees tomorrow for the high instead of 80, hope that is true for all of us runners out there, as well as our friends and families coming to cheer! Off to do some light yoga and drink some more water... Thanks to everyone who has offered encouragement! Ain't nothin' left to do but to get it done!
P.S. I am also slightly nervous ; )
