So have you heard about Atlanta Running Tours yet?
I was very excited when Kristy put out a call for runners to join her for one of her tours yesterday morning. Carol, Traci, and I were more than happy to help out. Our little adventure was filmed by reporter Julie Wolfe for a segment on 11 Alive News (check it out this upcoming Monday).
Even though I’d be considered somewhat of a “local” now, I got to see the city from a different perspective. Once you get started, you realize just how little you know about the places you pass everyday.
For instance, did you know the building of Centennial Olympic Park cost over $75 million, and almost all of the money came from the sale of the personalized bricks used in the walkways? True story.
You don’t walk away from the experience empty handed either. Along the way Kristy snaps pictures of you with Atlanta landmarks, and hooks you up with goodies like t-shirts, snacks, and water once you’re finished.
