This is a family business so I thought I would share a little bit about each of our team members who participated in the Peachtree Road Race on July 4th , 2016.  I’ll  put these in order of fastest to slowest.

The #1 runner on our team was my son : David Balfour who finished in 50:45! in the men’s age group 24-29.  He is 25 years old and graduated from Georgia Tech in 2014 and now works as a Process Engineer at OFS.

#2 is James Padget who finished in 56:37.  He is my son-in-law and is also 25.  He graduated from Georgia Tech in 2013 and works as a consultant for ADP.

#3 is Brittany Balfour Padget who is my daughter and she finished in 59:20. She is also 25 (David and Brittany are twins). She Graduated from Agnes Scott College in 2013 and now works as an HR specialist at Primerica.

#4 is Brooke Balfour, my younger daughter who finished in 1:19:58.  She is 21 and is entering her 4th year at Georgia State in the Fall, majoring in Computer Information Systems.

I was by far the slowest at 1:25:22.  I’m blaming the heat and humidity…also my age has something to do with it.

a fun time was had by all and after we had a couple of Mich Ultras at the finish we ate a good breakfast at JR’s.

I’ll try to find something interesting to write about next week!

                         Go Wine! With us

Sit back, relax and enjoy a day of wine tasting in the beautiful north Georgia Mountains and leave the driving to us.

We accommodate groups from 2 to 12 people and will pick you up anywhere in north metro Atlanta and suburbs.  If you are in the southern part of the city, we’ll pick you up at the North Springs MARTA station, up to 3 stops per tour.

The vineyards we’ll be visiting include: Chateau Meichtry, Fainting Goat, Engelheim, Cartecay and Sharp Mountain.  We will plan the itinerary, or if you have specific destination requests you and your guests want to visit, then we will be glad to oblige…This is your Day!
