It’s official, I am now a Hot Chocolate Blogger! I am so excited about this! What is a Hot Chocolate Blogger you ask? RAM Racing has a nationwide running race series called the Hot Chocolate 15/5K. The race first started in my home city, Chicago back in 2008. It has continued to grow, adding more cities each year and is currently the fastest growing race series in the nation. This is a fun race and very popular to do here in Chicago. Why, you ask? Well honestly, running, jogging, power walking is fun for anyone when the end of the race is followed up with music, a family friendly kid-zone (complete with bounce houses and games) and finisher’s mugs filled with hot chocolate, chocolate fondue and tasty dippable treats! Seriously! If chocolate can’t get you to get off the couch, get out and train then I honestly don’t know what could.
The Chicago Hot Chocolate is coming up November 3rd and it is held in Grant Park. There is still time to register and there are still spots available. I am planning on doing this race for the second time and I am doing it with family who has also done this before. It is a great event to do that way or with a group of friends or coworkers.
