Runners are out in force most every morning preparing for the Peachtree on July 4th. Are you running it? Which brings up a good point, next Wednesday is July 4th, who's going to come out for the run? A run will still be scheduled just to keep the streak alive. I haven't even asked Charles if the store will be open next Wednesday. Will the streak of consecutive Wednesday nights continue? Are there die-hards who will come out and run a little bit to keep the streak going? Run and you can still make the fireworks at 9pm. Stay tuned...
This Friday if you are one of the 1st 25 people for an 11 Alive tapping at the Square, you can get a free Revolution doughnut. How early to be the 1st 25, how about 4:30am. That's early and I don't know if I can get motivated for a doughnut at 4:30am. Peachapalooza is this weekend and there is an after-party at Steinbeck's. And for more peaches, it is the 2nd Annual Peach Jam Hosted by Slow Food Atlanta in EAV. And even more peaches, the Grant Park Peach Jam Cobbler Contest. 99X's Unplugged in the park continues at Piedmont Park. The New Belgium Tour De Fat is coming to the Old 4th Ward Park. It should make for a real interesting time. There is Jazz on the Lawn at Callonwolde. O4W Alive is hosting the Studiofest Art Music Food Festival.
What else is going on this weekend?
From this weekend to July 4th there are a lot of races around the area. On Saturday, June 30, are the 5th Annual HBCU Alumni 5K Run/Walk in Grant Park and A Dancer's Heart 5K in Decatur. For something longer there is the Peachtree Corners Festival Road Race 5K & 10K in Peachtree Corners. On Wednesday, July 4, is of course the ATC Peachtree Road Race 10K. There are more but I just wanted to highlight the local races because you can run other 10K's in Dahlonega, Wrightsville, and St. Mary's.
This Wednesday, tonight, you will be running route 11, the Decatur Cemetery run. There are a lot of turns on this route. Hope it's laid out enough on the map for you to follow. If not, keep an eye out for the person in front of you. The link to the route is at the bottom of this e-mail. After the run it's off to Mojo's Pizza for food, drinks and trivia.
Enjoy your run Wednesday night. Thanks for making the Oakhurst Running Club one of the friendliest running club in Atlanta.
