Atlanta Thanksgiving Day 5k- family tradition that my girls started with my family many years ago (and that I had with my parents when I was growing up) continues.   Most years I choose to run with the girls and their spouses/boyfriends and other friends or family who come to town to stay with us.  Every now and then I will take off and give it a go and meet them at the finish.  This year was one of those years.  Riley and Delaney were in town and my nephew and his wife were as well - none of them having run very much with the exception of Riley who is recovering from an injury.  
 

Cold windy and hilly - I had a decent race.  I was hoping to dip under 20 mins but the course was a little to unforgiving with the hills and a technical set of turns entering (and then the slick turf) at the Georgia State stadium - formerly the Braves' stadium now converted.  Splits were 6:24, 6:14 and 6:33.   A flat course may render a quicker time for me.  
 

Thankful for my family and for being able to run as well as I have been running this past year   This was my fastest 5k since 2013 according to Athlinks (shockingly).

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
