Medal Monday: Hot Chocolate ATL Virtual 5K

For the first time in I don't know when, I completed the Hot Chocolate Atlanta race in great weather. Due to the pandemic, the race was converted to a virtual event for 2021. I originally signed up for the 15k, but due to fracturing my fifth metatarsal in January I opted to walk the 5k this year.
I completed the 5k using a Peloton walking workout through my neighborhood to enjoy the beautiful day. I ran a little bit to test my foot, but I need a little more time for healing. I finished the race in 1:01:01, which was my longest activity time this year.
The swag for this year did not disappoint. I love the black jacket and the medal. The race packet also included hot chocolate packets and of course, chocolate. I registered for the race last year and I received my race packet the week before the originally scheduled race day (Feb 7). The race pack also included Nuun tablets, Honey Stinger wafers, a medal, and a bib. The medal had a small chocolate bar inside.
I hope next year we will able to run in-person for the chocolate. I am grateful for the opportunity to maintain my legacy status for another year.
