Hi Everyone!

It's been a few weeks since my original post.. As of today, 03/07/18, only a month to go! Still so excited to run America's Sweetest Race, the Allstate Hot Chocolate 15k Philadelphia! April, 7th, 2018.

Over the last couple years, this race has certainly peaked my interest, especially this past year. I have been much more involved in social media with running, and have seen so much excitement regarding this race series across the country, definitely wanted to give it a go the next time around!

I have run for beer on more than one occasion, run for bacon on another, but running for chocolate sounds like a pretty sweet deal! 
If you check out my partner BibRavePro's post's, you'll see how exciting a race can be with the sweet taste of chocolate! I hear there's plenty of chocolate at the expo, and even some treats along the course!
What are other BibRavePro's experiencing with #HC15k/5k across the country?! Check out their race weekend experience's below!

Training Program:
I am in the middle of a crazy race season. Will be doing a half program just before this. Allstate Hot Chocolate does provide a 12 week training program available on their site, they have also been so kindly sending email reminders of the upcoming week's plan each Sunday!

The medal: all about that bling! A chocolate candy bar medal and a Liberty Bell key chain!

And of course, Hot Chocolate, as well as goodies to dip in chocolate!

Free Photo's: Don't you hate those constant emails to buy $30 photos? And let's be honest, I look like garbage in the majority of mine. Well, extra incentive to look ahead for photographers and put on that best smile! Free photo's!

Now that I've signed up for the race, I'm going to head over to Athlinks to let my Athlink buddies know that I'm registered. This is my first 15k, will be a PR no matter the outcome, am looking forward to the sweet taste of accomplishment.
