Team Decatur held its first 2014 social last night at The Corner Pub and attendees were surprised with a visit from former Olympian Jeff Galloway. They asked him questions about their running habits and got some good free advice.

Team Decatur was formed in 2010 to participate in the Kaiser Permanente Corporate 5k held in September in downtown Atlanta. The team had over 200 participants last year. All levels of walkers and runners are welcome. Join us for some exercise and fun! For more information on Team Decatur click here.
