    Hey guys!
    I haven't posted here since the new site has been created, but I just wanted to drop by and post some updates. AlaninDahlonega and I ran the Publix Atlanta Marathon yesterday and completed it. We are very excited at this benchmark in our running and hope to continue to increase the distances. We didn't break any records, but had a great time! We were both wearing Vibram KSO Trek. We saw a few other VFFs and one barefoot runner that ran the marathon(very impressive). All in all it was a great race and something I will never forget.

    Could have done without the Druid Hills part though! Kudos to Decatur and Candler park for "embracing" the marathon, by showing such great support. The signs in Decatur help to pass the time, and the tour thru the girls college and their support was a bonus for this old man. Thanks Agnes Scott College.

    Congrats you guys! People don't know how serious some of the hills in Atlanta (races) are, so that's a nice accomplishment.
