Oh hey again. It's me . Tis the season. For what you ask?
Glad you asked.
For HOT CHOCOLATE! I'm not talking ANY hot chocolate. Oh, no. That'd be way too easy. I'm talking the Hot Chocolate 5k/15k race. A race. WITH CHOCOLATE. I'M IN.
Why is this my MUST-RUN race? Well, I know you're busy out there in HeiferLand, so I'll make this short and sweet. I posted a separate blog post (5 Reasons to Run The HC Race) which is totes legit, so check that out as well.
But - I wanted to add on just a few things. The main thing about this race I love is the udder (haha, yeah, you saw how I did that) excitement surrounding this race. Whether you're in Scottsdale or St. Louis, San Fran or San Diego - this race is SURE to deliver the sweet feeling you've come to know and love. The swag from the race is really awesome, too. Every year the sweatshirts are epic - (they run small, ORDER A SIZE UP, TRUST ME) - and what I love most is HotChocolate sweatshirt sightings year round. It's the badge of honor. I'm a chocolatier too!
The expo is unprecedented. Huge, fun, and full of ... well, chocolate!
The race itself is always well organized, with tons of volunteers, well staffed, and the med. tent at the end is fantastic (ask my friend who needed some extra TLC last year...after pulling her IT band....).
I'm not here to convince you to run it - I'm here to ask WHY you WOULDN'T want to run it. The Scottsdale Hot Chocolate race is coming up soon - "BRHCSCOTTS17" is the code to use for a bonus Hot Chocolate branded cap!
Get registered, y'all! This is a race you don't want to miss.
