The Atlanta 10 Miler is one of my favorite Atlanta races! There are numerous reasons why this race ranks in my "must run" in Atlanta but 2 of my top reasons are (1) it is a fairly unique distance (especially in Atlanta) and (2) the course support is AMAZING! This will be my 3rd year running this race and I cannot wait for October 25th to come around! The Atlanta 10 Miler is also part 2 of Atlanta Track Club's Triple Peach. While the Triple Peach Challenge is sold out, there is still registration available for the 10 Miler as well as the 5K! For more information, go to the Atlanta Track Club website.
For several years now I have wanted to run the Rock 'n' Roll Las Vegas Half Marathon. This year, it is becoming a reality! Not only am I running the half marathon on Sunday night, I am also running the 5K on Saturday night which will earn me the Remix Challenge medal as well! This will be my first Rock 'n' Roll race weekend, and I cannot think of anywhere better to do it than down the Las Vegas Strip!

This will be the 3rd year that my family heads to the Wilderness At The Smokies for the Santa Hustle. I love this family tradition of ours because we get to take a small weekend getaway, enjoy an awesome indoor water park, and of course RUN! Santa Hustle offers both a 5K and a 1/2 Marathon which starts right in front of the hotel doors - how awesome! The swag for this race series is pretty amazing - a half zip jacket, Santa beard, and Santa hat! Count me in! Along the way runners get little touches of holiday fun including Christmas music and Christmas treats at the aid stations.
There are different locations nationwide as well as a virtual option, so be sure to check out this race series. Psssst.....promo code BGILBERT15 will save you $5 on ANY 2015 Santa Hustle Race. That is right - 5K or Half Marathon, ANY city, or even virtual!
