The few days leading up to the race were above 100 degrees each day which had a lot of people worried about the conditions during the race. They even instituted a "flag system" which let you know the conditions while running. I think that is taking things too far. Do you really need a flag to tell you if it's hot? I thought the weather was fine. Of course I was sweating my butt off by mile two, but it's a race, it's July in Atlanta and you're running along an asphalt road. I was expecting to be sweaty. You can see in the picture below that it was pretty overcast at the start, too.
|Just before the start of the race you pass under a giant American Flag, Stephen got a great shot of it as he passed under.|
To finish out our July 4th holiday we went to the Braves game and watched fireworks after the game. The Braves didn't end the game with a W, but the stadium was packed and we got to honor quite a few military personnel, past and present. We even had a T-6 Texan flyover before the game instead of the expected jets. So awesome. Those planes were training aircraft in WWII and were used in the Korean War and Vietnam War.
