Mother Nature decided that she wanted to rip into the new year as well, so she made her presence be known by raining on us this morning. It wasn't a complete monsoon, thankfully, but it was a cold drizzly rain. At first I wasn't sure how the weather would impact participation. The race was a sell out for the 4 Miler, and the crowd was less than last year but was still a great turn out. I will tell you, it was pumping at packet pick up with so many runners ready to get 2017 started! Thank you to the awesome volunteers and Atlanta Track Club staff who got everyone trough packet pickup quickly. There was also a great DJ getting everyone pumped and ready to go along with tons and tons of port-o-potties (always a great sight!).
