ATL Mayor’s 5K on the 5th Runway

By chance, we happened to be flying out of Atlanta the same morning as The Mayor’s 5K on the 5th Runway.

Although we had a flight to Rome via Dallas at 9:55am, we decided we just had to run the 5k. It was certainly worth it – check out JT’s post for The Points Guy to read more about our experience.

We decided to live tweet at one point during the race.

With all of the tweets, pictures, and just sightseeing our time wasn’t great. But we accomplished our goal – going fast enough that we wouldn’t be removed for not being on track to finish the race in 60 minutes.

We each got a shirt, medal, race number and flashing arm band. We kept the shirt and race number and left the other items at the hotel as we didn’t want to carry them around Europe for the next couple months.
