Day 24 Happy Birthday to Ms. Margaret Mamie Kendall aka Meg ! People often ask me what inspired me to lose weight and change my eating habits. In 2007 we sent out Christmas Cards and Meg Kendall looked at the photo and said "who's pregnant? Me or my wife?" By March of 2008 I was down 30lbs and by the end of May down 65lbs. How did I do it? I thought you'd never ask! First I started by getting up each morning at 4am and going to the gym and riding the recumbent bike. At first I could only do it for 15min. I replaced my favorite drink(Sprite and lemonade mixed) with water/lemon. And then came the two hardest things french fries and eating late. And that's where the will power kicked in! I weighed my self every morning. One morning I weighed before I went to the gym and when I got back. 3lbs were gone! You can imagine what happened next. That 15 min. turned into 30 min. and then to 1 hour! I still weigh myself every morning. My neighbors hosted a Super Bowl party in 2008 and fried fish and french fries w ...

A couple of people in my church congregation told me Saturday afternoon I've lost weight. They're right - I've dropped about ten pounds since last summer. But once I drove home, I realized something. I needed a big Saturday night run to confirm what they found. A little adjusting of the diet has helped me lose those pounds. Replacing chocolate chip cookies with strawerry and fig bars really can make a difference. In some years since moving to Columbus, I did well to have ten three-mile runs in a year. Perhaps helped by fewer pounds, the total in 2012 was an astonishing 42. Most of those came after my birthday in early August -- as the humidity finally stopped pushing back at me so hard. My longest run in 2012 was 4.5 miles -- as best I recall. I apparently lost six-and-a-half years of running records when my computer died last weekend, because I kept them in Microsoft Works Calendar. The Geek Squad was able to extract a lot of files from my dead computer, but not all my sweat. After a ...
ROAD RACING LEGEND JOSEPH KIMANI DEAD AT 40 Joseph Kimani, one of the most successful Kenyan road racers of the 1990's who still holds the event records at marquis races like the Vancouver Sun Run and Peachtree Road Race, has died. According to his management company, Kimbia Athletics, Kimani died on Nov. 1 of pneumonia. He was 40, and was buried in Eldoret last week. While a solid performer on the track, with personal bests of 13:12.05 for 5000m and 27:28.07 for 10,000m, Kimani found his true calling on the roads. In his legendary 1996 season, Kimani won the Vancouver Sun Run 10-K (27:31 CR), Sallie Mae 10-K (28:01), Revco-Cleveland 10-K (27:20 WR), Peachtree Road Race 10-K (27:04 CR), Utica Boilermaker 15-K (42:40 CR), George Sheehan Classic 10-K (28:10 CR), and Falmouth Road Race 7-Mile (31:36 CR). Six of those course records were never broken. "[Joseph] has to be considered one of the best road racers of all time," commented his long-time agent Tom Ratcliffe in a statement. While Kimani's 10-K world r ...
1990s Road Star Joseph Kimani Dead The Kenyan set world bests at 10-K and 12-K. By Peter Gambaccini; Image by Victah Sailer /PhotoRun .. Published November 13, 2012 .. Joseph Kimani of Kenya, a dominant runner on the American road race circuit in the mid-1990s, has died of pneumonia at the age of 40, KIMbia Athletics reports. In 1996, Kimani had established a world 10-K road record of 27:20 in Cleveland, lowering that to 27:04 at the Peachtree Road Race in Atlanta. That effort was a Peachtree record by 52 seconds and is still the event record for that July 4 Atlanta classic. His world standard stood for six years until Haile Gebrselassie clocked 27:02 in 2002. In 1997, Kimani ran a world 12-K best of 33:21 in Evansville, Indiana. Kimani’s 2000 Boulder Boulder 10-K victory was by 57 seconds, still the largest winning margin in that race’s history. His 31:36 at the 1996 Falmouth Road Race is still the second fastest time at that Cape Cod event. Kimani won Green Bay’s Bellin Run four times, Mobile’s ...
Richmond Road Runners Club (RRRC) announces speaker for annual Grand Prix Awards Banquet: "Truly Special Banquet Speaker - Frank Shorter Your RRRC club is excited to announce we have contracted with Frank Shorter, 1972 Olympic Marathon Gold Medalist and 1976 Olympic Marathon Silver Medalist to speak at our annual banquet in early 2013. Borrowed from his web site, the following are just a few of the highlights in Mr. Shorter's heralded career: "Shorter won the U.S. national cross-country championships four times (1970, 1971, 1972, 1973). He was the U.S. Olympic Trials Champion in both the 10,000-meter run and the marathon in both 1972 and 1976. He also won both the 10,000-meter and the marathon at the 1971 Pan American Games. Shorter was a four-time winner of the Fukuoka Marathon (1971, 1972, 1973, 1974). He was successful on the road racing circuit as well, winning the Peachtree Road Race in 1977 and the Falmouth Road Race in 1975 and 1976. Shorter won his greatest recognition, however, as a marathon runn ...

Bridget and I just finished the Vinings Down Hill 5k to get our qualiifying time for next year's Peachtree Road Race. We did great! I beat my time by 3 minutes from last year.

Last year I forced myself to run my first 10K since the Peachtree Road Race near death experience 20 some odd years ago. Thank you, Jim Mackie for that forever memory. How did I convince myself to do it; I paid for it a couple of months in advance. LOL So I guess I will be signing up for the Soldier half-marathon soon. Not sure why I have decided to tackle this adventure at 50, maybe I finally lost the right (wrong) combination of screws in my brain.

Hope everyone had a great 4th of July. Well yesterday Anh Bao ran the Peachtree Road Race and he was on a segment on NBC. Later that night we went to Lenox Mall to watch the fireworks and this family from New York,who I had no idea who they were, came to Atlanta to celebrate the 4th and to watch the fireworks and it was a lot of them. That made me think of Ms RoseMarie.
Another Fourth of July in the books. Great race, good food, fireworks, and a nice relaxing day. I say thank you to all the brave men and women who have fought so we can celebrate such an event. Completed my eighth Peachtree Road Race and improved my PR by 1minute and 20 seconds. At this rate of improvement it will take me 40 years to catch the Kenyans...LOL

Had a great time running the Peachtree Road Race with Adele and some of her friends. Any time with Adele is good time.
Me and my cousin Jackie. She is 63 years old and runs the Peachtree Road Race in 45 minutes but she was kind enough to run with me the whole race since this was my first 10k. We did it in 62 minutes.

Congressman Lewis made the most of Independence Day by visiting with friends and constituents at various events happening across the great city of Atlanta.
Walked in the Peachtree Road Race. Took me 2 hours and 15 minutes. Got my tee shirt, sore ankles, a great tan, and all the water I can drink. I was in Wave T, for those of you who were there. That's one that's scratched off my bucket list.
Watching Peachtree Road Race on TV Wednesday, realized how much my out-of-shape self missed participating in last two years.
We had so much fun at Davio's Atlanta celebrating the 4th of July! It was a dawn till dusk party beginning with the AJC Peachtree Road Race and ending with patriotic dishes with an Italian twist, prosecco, and phenominal Lenox Square fireworks display! How did you celebrate America?
The Peachtree Road Race brought a cast of characters to the streets of Atlanta today. Check out some of the costumes and fun on Peachtree Street today on Nelson's News.

Andy Lipman's sister Wendy lived just 16 days, her life cut short before it began due to cystic fibrosis.
Another year and another Peachtree Road Race... Alot of fun except for the over heating and medical tent rest stop but little gatorade and good to go...hit my goal of under 55min
Most people who know me know that I have a bad knee. I did everything I could to "baby" my knee while training for the Peachtree Road Race. I even got tips from a running coach on how to run a particular way that uses different muscles in order to protect the knee. I walked forever to get starting place for the race, ran the race, walked forever to find our car, walked all over the square while waiting for fireworks.all with no knee injuries or discomfort of any kind. Got home, took one step out of my truck, hit some mud, twisted my knee, cussed like a maniac, now I'm making my appt with my ortho doctor for my knee. Just my luck!!
The one and only God's Grace and Mercy!! Finished the surprise Peachtree Road Race on behalf of the health and fitness guru, my daughter Nicole Duncan! Was rough but a huge milestone to accomplish. Was already too sore from previous workouts but made it! Now determined with God's blessings to do better more than ever by keeping Him first, and capitalizing on my health, my family and all my work! Making it a great day!! Your friendly and hardworking Realtor!!
Good Morning Family, GOD is so good. I finished the Peachtree Road Race yesterday with no challenges. My time was not my best but I finished
I got off at the Midtown MARTA station & decided to snap a few...
Still feeling that natural high from the Peachtree Road Race yesterday. Today is gonna be great!
Naturals were in full force at the Peachtree Road Race. I saw flat twist updos with twisted bangs, twistouts, braid outs, puffs, wash-n-gos, some buns, and two strand twists. My twists were in two french braids. Shout out to the guy who pulled my hair at Piedmont Park. I think he was reliving his days in elementary school!
My brother, Jake, ran the Peachtree Road Race yesterday and still made it to the Atlanta Airport before my plane got there. We are now in Fairbanks, Alaska. Totally unsafe for vampires as I don't think it ever got dark last night.

We had a great 4th. Ran the Peachtree Road Race with Jim Paisley, out to lunch with Harriet Warren Rasberry, and party with Christina Carter and company :)
Official time for Peachtree Road Race - 1:18:58. Better than I thought I'd do, but a time to beat for next 10K. Was a lot of fun and can't wait to do it again!
WOW! Mega-props to my neighbor Lance, who ran his first-ever Peachtree Road Race with a time of 0:52:35. Holy freaking smokes! And he kept saying "I'm just going to pace myself." Child, PLEASE. :-)

Is thinking for the sake of the new norm which is "fairness",can we ban Kenyans from the Peachtree road race. It's not "fair" because they always win,obviously being better runners.We should of course spread the wealth of winning. Amazingly the wheelchair portion was won by a Mexican man but that's only because a ladder fell off his chair and blocked the path of the other racers. Bah Duh bono thank you thank you!
Peachtree Road Race. July 4,2012. 57,754 finishers. In Mary Mendel Katz's division, 1083 finishers, and she was the division winner. How about that?
(Jon Shirek) Just wrapping up my day and wanted to acknowledge some of the terrific people I got to meet during the AJC Peachtree Road Race. They can lift anyone's spirits. What I had with me to shoot my news story was not a "real" camera (I could have taken one with me, but that's a lot to carry for 6.2 miles, even though many people have done it). I had one of those now-discontinued HD "Flip Cams" that's tiny, it fits in the palm of your hand. Great for using while, well, running. It gives you shakey video, though, and you have to hold it very, very close to the person who is speaking so the little microphone will pick up what they're saying. Anyway, I was only able to include in my 2:00 story (for our late newscasts on Wed.) a few of the inspiring runners I met. Two of them are a father and his 20-something daughter. She is deaf. What I just found out is that they ran the entire race together. They finished within a second of each other. She told me she was going to make sure he finished, an ...

Busy & fun 4th. Derek ran the Peachtree Road Race (10K) this morning. After lunch we went to the pool. Had arranged to go to the Alpharetta fireworks with our neighbors, Paola Diaz & family, but worried about thunderstorms. So we had dinner & celebrations here. We had a "traditional" 4 de Julio dinner of tacos de lengua with all the trimmings -- then sparklers and small fireworks in the street. Fun day with family and friends!
I survived my first Peachtree Road Race. I didn't fall, didn't quit, didn't get dehydrated, didn't win (LOL) but I wasn't the last one either.had lots of fun.oh, yeah...and didn't get sunburned.

The Peachtree Road Race was bunches of fun .. Not as hot as expected EXCEPT at the 5 mile marker .. Pavement was really hot .. Deliberately started out at a slow pace but kinda' picked it up at the 3 mile marker .. Averaged 17 minute (by my watch timer) miles for the 6.2 mile hoofin' at the Peachtree .. Backed off of my normal 16 minute pace .. 17 minutes is not too hot for some folks but fine by me .. As the Grand Old Opra star, Minnie Pearl, used to say: I'm jus' proud to be heruh'." .. Praises!!!
OK ... ran the Peachtree Road Race today ... 6.2 miles ... even got a t-shirt ;o)
Hope all went well at the Peachtree Road Race!! We don't get much news of it here in TN. Dang it!!

Headed out for a run wearing my 2002 Peachtree Road Race t-shirt. Lots of lovely memories...I had been dating Mike for about six months. He drove me to the start and showed up several times along the route to cheer me on. (For those of you who aren't familiar with this 5K race, it is an Atlanta tradition; run each year on the 4th of July by 50,000 in the sweltering heat down Peachtree Street).
