Gimme some motivation: Hot Chocolate 15k

Here we go again! Along with a friend from work I’ve decided to sign up for another race. Not a half marathon, although I went back and forth debating the Love Marathon, but decided to ultimately look into other exercise options. I decided to go for the Hot Chocolate 15k race in April in Philadelphia. I haven’t run a 15k before, but the distance feels like it would be a good challenge while still being do-able despite the icky weather to train in!


The Hot Chocolate features both a 15k and a 5k and brags that the course, “highlights the city’s biggest attractions”. Sounds great to me! The race is followed by a post race party which you’re given a finishers mug filled with “chocolate fondue, dippable snacks and decadent hot chocolate”. I almost can’t read about all of this chocolate during my vegan week! Finally, this part of the the race swag is a major motivator to do it…Check out that finishers medal and, instead of a race t-shirt you get this awesome jacket!



So, check out this *hopefully* awesome race and why not sign up? I’ll see you at the starting line!
