Tired but Happy
I am happy to say today most things went right. Runner, volunteers, and exhibitors had a good time. The organizers, me included, thought it far exceeded our expectations. We had 300 runners. We have some minor tweaks and there will be time to have debriefings and work things out, but I think a new race has joined the ranks of annual Atlanta events, and I only see it growing! It is kind of amazing to see an idea you had two years ago exceed your dreams and I feel real gratitude to those who worked with me to make it happen. Also as much work as it had been, that all goes away when you see people enjoying the sport you love too and having such a good time. You could not even remember all those terrible things you were thinking for the last two weeks.
A short one today! It is fun and you might forget the work, but you don't forget how tired you are. Definitely time for a little wine and unwinding!!
