ATLANTA: DAY TWO--HAPPY B'DAY AMERICA

Happy Birthday America!
We started the day with 55,000 of our closest friends! Well, actually we ran with that many! It was the 39th running of the Peachtree Road Race (10K). It was 72 degrees at the beginning of the race (7:30 a.m.). We were in time group: 40,000-49,999. It was a great run!


Lunch was at The Varsity: the world's largest drive-in. As soon as you get close to the counter about ten servers shout: "What'll ya' have? What'll ya' have? What'll ya' have?"
I had a naked dog and The Big D had a slaw dog!
We ended the day at the Braves game. Our usher's name was Micheal. He said, "Hi, I'm your usher for the evening, Micheal." So we asked him to take our picture and his buddy came over to join us! The Braves won, so what more could we ask?

The flag was unrolled by soldiers just back from Iraq. What a great way to celebrate the 4th of July!



God Bless America!!!!
