Hot Chocolate 5K

31 Jan

I dressed up for my very first race EVER!! Another girls weekend away, this time in ATL with my sister and Natalie. Pam was kind enough to let us stay at her house for the night so we wouldn’t have to spend money on a hotel. We got to Atlanta on Saturday to get to the Expo to get our awesome sweatshirts!! Picture 38.

Pam was at the expo with our MRTT table all set up like the Willy Wonka factory!!! They were all dressed up and looked awesome. 163395_492341267484737_849581092_n19411_10200307615321583_26669251_n

We traveled around Atlanta after we finished up with the expo. Then we met up with all the MRTT ladies who came up from Savannah for dinner at The California Pizza Kitchen in Atlantic Station (we so need one of these here!!) we had 15 meet up with us for dinner, and 5 more that were a little bit later. 541676_10200308518824170_182498137_n

Race morning we all got dressed, my sister was the Golden Ticket, i dressed as a Oompa Loompa, along with a BUNCH of the girls from the ATL area who were racing as well. One of Pam’s friends picked us up and took us to the race. It was still pitch black out, at 5:30 in the morning! but we managed to get as many girls as we could find to take a picture of the group that dressed up. 19224_10200344621366711_897739541_n This wasn’t even everyone, everywhere you turned there were more oompa’s. The race was good, a bit hilly, which i liked, well idk about “liked” but it is good for my full marathon training. I finished the race in 30:22. Ok considering how many people you had to weave in and out of.

 

I thought that the 16,000+ people that signed up for our Savannah Rock N Roll marathon was a lot….guess again. This was not even a huge event like that one and it had 19,000 people sign up. OMG, but they definitely know how to handle that many people coming into town. I guess they are used to it with the football and baseball games. The parking lot was huge and held everyone comfortably. The chocolate was great, i mean i love chocolate, so how could it not be great…we got a cute little cup filled with goodies. 16572_4804522987234_92624583_n  That is pretty much it.
