Each year I usually get to run about half of the events and my favorites are definitely the more unique distances like 12K, 10 mile, and 4 miler. Y'all know that I love Atlanta Track Club events and I certainly always enjoy running different distances, so of course I was beyond excited to head out to Decatur to take part in the 2019 Dekalb 4 Miler!
We arrived "dark and early" which was over an hour before race time. I will tell you, it was pumping at packet pick up with so many runners ready!
Today was more of a training and maintenance run for me rather than pushing myself. While I haven't ran this course before, I knew that Decatur was quite hilly and with the heat I didn't want to do anything too dumb.
Even though today's race was free (for members), Atlanta Track Club still made sure that runners refueled after the race with fruit, granola bars, water and sports drink at the finish line. Honestly, they had more set up for us than some of the other races that are $30+, so I am beyond grateful that they take such wonderful care of their runners and walkers.
