The Peachtree and throwing out the first pitch tonight

Well, it wasn't so much the heat that was difficult yesterday but the humidity. It was a scorcher. The first 3 miles were pretty easy for me but once the hills and humidity took over, I was lucky to run the whole thing. I ran the Peachtree (6.2 miles) in 73 minutes. Earlier that morning, I did an interview with Fox 5 and Buck Lanford. I think it went pretty well. I also got to meet Atlanta mayor Kasim Reed as we talked about the Hawks and how thrilled we both were with the recent trades.

I am attaching a picture of me and one of the winners from yesterday's race. The top 3 runners were all from Kenya which gave me the idea that next year I'll have a shirt that on the back reads "If you're from Kenya and can read this, shame on you for not training better this year."

Tonight I throw out the first pitch at around 6:55pm at Turner Field. I'm excited but nervous too. I'll have about 30 friends there to watch me. No pressure, right?

This has been a dream of mine for years and I'm excited that I can cross this achievement off the bucket list tonight.

I'll let all of you know how it goes. My sister will be taking video.

Thanks again for the support!
