I received entry into the AllState Hot Chocolate Atlanta 15K as a part of being a BibRave Pro. Check out BibRave.com to read and write race reviews.
|What a beautiful day|
So let me get this part of of the way right at the beginning. This year's Hot Chocolate 15K Atlanta had some truly terrible weather. As a winter themed race, cold is to be expected, however, in addition to cold, the 2018 race was wet as well. As in pouring rain wet. With that said, of course that was in no way the fault of the race organizers and honestly, the race did everything within their powers to make the day as enjoyable as possible, which I really really appreciated. While rainy, it was just rain, no thunder/lightening so, as clearly communicated, the race went on as planned. The management company kept awesome communication about the status of the race right up until the start and even sent out a special email the next day thanking participants for their commitment and offering a discount code for next years race, which they in no way had to do. They really went above and beyond if you ask me.

After we were warm and dry and back home, all that was left for me to do was head over to Athlinks and claim my race results which, because this was a new PR for me, I wasted no time in doing!
It was so much fun, I think I'll do it all over again next weekend in Charlotte. But this time, let's hope for better weather. I'm going to start singing "Rain Rain Go Away, Come Again Another Day" now just to make sure.
