Rewind a few months ago to when my family and I all received emails from Atlanta Track Club with an opportunity to sign up to volunteer at this very unique event. With all of us being huge football fans and love volunteering with Atlanta Track Club, we all jumped on the opportunity to volunteer at the official road race of the College Football Playoff, the Extra Yard 5K.
Since my team wasn't in the game, I wasn't sure how the the feels of being in the middle of the weekend's festivities would feel. WOW! The moment we stepped outside of the Georgia World Congress Center you could just feel all the excitement around you. All the signs were up, fan central was ready to go and CFB National Championship decor was everything. THIS IS HAPPENING FOLKS! If I was this excited without having my team in the game, I can't imagine how those with a team in it felt.
