Hot Chocolate 15K
Have you heard of the Hot Chocolate 5K/15K race? If you haven’t you have to look into it; I mean who doesn’t love chocolate??? This race includes 2 of my favorite things… running and chocolate… now i’m not one who can actually run and eat chocolate at the same time… my body doesn’t agree with that at all…. but to get a butload of chocolate to eat after you run along with some amazing swag, YES PLEASE!!!!
This year the jackets were amazing… super cute and super nice. I’ve done a lot of races where you look at the shirt and say, “I ran for this thing??”… that’s not the case in this race… you actually do the race because of the jacket….. i’m just saying… it’s true.
The course, in Scottsdale, isn’t anything fancy… at first it’s gorgeous and your running next to green grass and actual trees… then it changes and your running next to brush and under freeways…. but the amount of people there and the chocolate and marshmallows they give you while you are running tend to make up for the not so great course.
The fun part is the Finishers mug… a mug of hot chocolate, with a bunch of chocolate to dip marshmallows, rice crispies, cookies, pretzels and bannanas. Normally I don’t eat a ton of sugar… but I ran this race for the chocolate, so I had to do it and it was yummy!!!!!
So…. for those interested in a race… check it out. they have a 5K and a 15K and they are all over the country. It’s a fun one to try.
