Maker Faire Atlanta is just around the corner on Oct 4 & 5 in the heart of downtown Decatur and Decatur Makers is busy making projects to showcase. They will have three booths PLUS something called a Human-sized Foosball table (!!) PLUS they are rebuilding the 3-D puzzle of the mine-crafted City of Decatur logo from the Arts Fest.

The official ING Cheering Station for Decatur was at Fellini’s and the addition of part of the Marching Abominables definitely helped rock the cheering section and the runners. Thanks to everyone who came out to help cheer on the runners in the 3rd annual ING Georgia Marathon.

Happy Volunteers at the Hydration Station

I hear that Hydration Station #13 was rocking as well, with the addition of music and lots of cheerful volunteers. Thanks to Michael Harbin and his group for getting up early with a lot of enthusiasm and Laura Moore and her volunteers who staffed Hydration Station #11. Thanks to everyone who lined the streets and welcomed the runners to our wonderful city.

I received an email from a gentleman in Kennesaw this morning who was so impressed with our city that he is going to bring his wife back here to shop and dine. He also mentioned that he was running with a woman who had run in Boston, and was more than impressed with Decatur.  Way to go eveyone- this is why we have such a great city- we have great folks living and working here.
I should know later in the week if we won for best cheering, so check back for updates.
Thanks also to everyone who works for the City of Decatur for pitching in to make the marathon safe and fun.
