ATLANTA -- Don't be alarmed if you see a whole bunch of people running down Georgia 400 this weekend.

The Pay the Last Toll road race will be held Sunday, Nov. 17 at 8:30 a.m., and gives athletes one last opportunity to see the infamous toll booths before they are demolished.

Runners will begin at the Glenridge Connector in Sandy Springs and run south to Phipps Plaza. When they reach the toll booths, they will throw in their final 50 cents. All proceeds will go to charity.

Northbound lanes of Ga. 400 will be closed for the race from 5 a.m. to 11 a.m. Sunday.

The Called Woman to help women reinvent their careers

The Called Woman to help women reinvent their careers

MARIETTA, Ga. -- You know you've been here before, asking yourself what you should do with the rest of your life.

Or maybe you're already realizing you have some great ideas, but you just don't know where to start making any of them happen.

Maybe you are just getting back into the work force, or maybe you are stuck in an unfulfilled career just wishing you did something you loved, something that made a difference, something that made you excited to get up in the morning and get started living your dream, realizing your purpose and making your passion happen.

That can all change on March 15, 2014!

Does this sound familiar? Recent studies revealed that only 53% of Americans were content with their jobs and less than 10% were truly satisfied. But what if you could actually spend a whole day learning how to reinvent yourself? You can and it's happening this March at the Called Woman Conference in Marietta.
