Extra-special congratulations go out to Leigh Miller Patterson, 36, of Athens, who ran the race, her first 5K, in 38:20. Leigh is the wife of Eric Patterson, who ran Rocket City last week (his first marathon) in 3:33:02. Eric blogged his diligent training schedule for the whole world to see.
The Pattersons made it a family affair today when twins Erin & Lindsey took to the streets alonside their dad for the One-Mile Fun Run. Both girls finished strong with Erin coming in at 9:45 and Lindsey at 10:15.
Great Job, Pattersons!
