Atlanta Jingle Bell Jog 5K PR

The Atlanta Jingle Bell Jog 5K came 10 days after the Turkey Trot 10K! I managed to PR even though my main focus was to have fun. Can you think of a more beautiful sight than 100s of Santa Clauses running the streets of Atlanta? Yes, you probably can but I bet it won’t make […] Read more…
