Thousands Enjoy Thanksgiving Morning Run Through Midtown

Midtown was host to thousands of runners earning their turkey on Thanksgiving morning.

Thousands of runners and walkers spent their morning winding through Downtown and Midtown in the Atlanta Half Marathon and 5k runs.

The annual event is sponsored by the Atlanta Track Club.

As somebody who ran this morning's race, I'd like to say thank you to all the volunteers who handed out water, helped warn runners about potholes and did all the other things needed to make an event like this possible. And thanks to the spectators, even that guy in Atlantic Station with the sign that joked, "Worst Parade Ever."
