As I embark on yet another 10k early this morning, I have to acknowledge the fact that I'm doing this race at this time of the year and virtually at that. If anyone is familiar with the Peachtree Road Race, you know it’s the largest 10k race in the world. On Independence Day, people from every corner of Earth travel to the “A” to compete in what's arguably the most fun you'll have over 6.6 miles. I would be dishonest in saying I wasn't particularly disappointed that the race wasn't on its traditional date or in it's traditional manner, but we’ve all had to make adjustments for the greater good. That's why I give thanks more than ever this holiday season.
