I was going to be back in Georgia for the Thanksgiving weekend and decided I wanted to run a half marathon on Thanksgiving as part of my training for my January marathon. I chose this race based on running races in the past put on by North GA Running Co. The race is low key with decent swag. Runners of all distances receive a hooded long sleeve tech tee and a medal. There were water stations every couple of miles, but no gels and no sports drink of any kind. Luckily, I packed my trusty Orange Mud Double Barrel pack with 2 bottles of Nuun and carried gels on me to take every 30 minutes.
Cathy dropped me off at the race start just after 7. It was breezy, so I found a spot shielded from the winds and hung out there until just before the start. The race started at 7:30, so there wasn't a long time till the start
