"Six Reasons the Hot Chocolate Run Is The Sweetest Race In Town” by Mark Bauer for Active.com. The lowdown is: chocolate…goodie bag…medals…free photos…serious race…training plan. You may say that nearly every race features these elements, except for the chocolate.
Read the article to see how this race series (15K and 5K distances) may differ from other races you’ve registered for and finished. I find the promise of a customized training plan to be one of the better reasons to run this race, the very best being the 'goodie bag'. I received emails from the race organizers throughout the year and enjoyed voting for the very cool “swag” item given in this season, a hoodie.
Upcoming 2016 race dates: October 16 (Denver CO), 30 (Chicago IL), November 20 (Columbus OH), December 4 (Scottsdale AZ), 11 (St. Louis MO), 18 (Tampa FL).

BRIDGE TO PHYSICAL SELF
Running, walking, and fitness activities enable us to experience our physical selves in a world mostly accessed through use of fingers on a mobile device.
EARNED RUNS is edited and authored by me, runner and founder. I began participating in road races before 5Ks were common. I've been a dietitian, practiced and taught clinical pathology, and been involved with research that utilized pathology. I am fascinated with understanding the origins of disease as well as health.
