HUGE THANKS TO SHAMEIA CRAWFORD
Of course there were laughs, laughs, and more laughs when Mike E Winfield took the stage.
To be honest, I don't think we ever stopped laughing.
At the end of the performance, Mike shared with the audience the release of his comedy special, My Side of The Story, which he fully financed on his own. His hard work on My Side of The Story, caught the attention of many, allowing him the opportunity to record, StepMan.
Event Records Fall as AJC Peachtree Road Race Celebrates 50th Running
$200,000 in event record bonus prize money was up for grabs and today’s winners took it all with the men’s and women’ winners in both the footrace and the Shepherd Center Wheelchair division setting all-time bests at the Peachtree.
“It still hasn’t entirely sunk in yet,” Romanchuk said. “It was a fast day and a great field. I was just sprinting all the way to go as fast as I could – It was a very strong record so I knew it had to be an all-out record. To have an equal payout for the record bonus, I’m lacking the words to describe it.”
Emily Sisson (Scottsdale, AZ) and Colin Bennie (Charlottesville, VA), were the top American finishers, running 32:03 and 29:12, respectively.
Atlanta Track Club’s Wilkerson Given and Janel Blancett went home with the Top Georgian honors, as Given crossed in 30:12 and Blancett finished in 36:03.
“Honestly, that was the highlight of my life,” said Giffin, an Atlanta Track Club member who ran the race with her daughter, Harriet, while her sons and husband raced ahead. “It’s more than winning a contest – It’s the fact that this is my family’s passion. The Atlanta Track Club means so much to us and so it’s symbolic of what we do as a family.”
Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms served as an official starter at Lenox Square, as she kicked off the race then walked the course with her staff for the second straight year.
“I was born in 1970, so to think that this race started seven months after I was born and that now I get to kick it off as Mayor it really is a dream come true for me and speaks to what’s possible in our city,” she said. “The Peachtree just speaks to Atlanta and the diversity that we have in this city. I’m grateful to Atlanta Track Club, our sanitation workers, our public safety personnel, and the Department of Public Works for making this race beautiful and clean and safe for all of us.”
“It could’ve been just a fad,” said Thorn of his early Peachtree streak. “But as you go along through the years, people like Julia say to me every once in a while to keep going and that was really encouraging, and so it just became a year after year thing. Who ever would have imagined that little tiny group would have turned into this?”
“Atlanta Track Club, its members and volunteers wanted to make the 50th Running of the Peachtree into an unforgettable celebration of the history and legacy of this race,” said Rich Kenah, Race Director of the AJC Peachtree Road Race and Executive Director of Atlanta Track Club. “And Running City USA delivered. This is a day that Atlanta will remember for years to come.”
