We belong to the Atlanta Track Club. This is one of the largest run clubs in the country, and annually puts on one of the the biggest 10ks in the world-The AJC Peachtree Road Race, a 4th of July race that draws 60,000 participants!

The Atlanta Track Club also has smaller races around the city throughout the year. There was one nearby this past Saturday, so my husband and I decided to run it. As long as you’re a member, many races are free.
I had worked on Friday night at my second job (P/T at a dress shop). Lately, this job has been kicking my butt! I’ve gone from eight hours a week to over 20! Last week, I had to leave my F/T job in the middle of the day so that I could go home and nap.
So anyway, on the morning of the race, my husband started having an allergy attack. He took a claritin, and we set off for the race. The claritin didn’t work, and by the time we were almost to the race, he decided that he wasn’t going to be able to breathe/run. I was never so gleeful about one of his allergic reactions in my life!! We turned around and went home. I got into bed and took a 2 hour nap!! Guess I needed it.
