A surprise race has made it's way onto my 2017 running calendar and it's a first. My first race for BibRave and my first 15k: The Hot Chocolate 15k Minneapolis.
Every time I think of this race the "Hot Chocolate" song from the Polar Express comes to mind. If you haven't heard it yet, I highly encourage you to take a second to listen :)
Hot, Hot - Hey, We've got it! - Hot Chocolate!
The race swag is pretty amazing. Because, well, I love chocolate and one can never have too many cute hoodies. Plus with the "MinnHCBR" code when registering, you receive a bonus visor. Pretty cool. I mean hot!
I received a free 7-week race plan when I registered which was great because... how do you train for a 15k? Not a 10k but not quite a half and definitely not a full.
The plan has been a great motivator for me to jump back into "training mode" again. I have missed those long runs!
Anywhoo, I'm really excited for this race and a trip to "the city". I hope my family can join me so we can check out Lego Land and visit a new church for Easter service while we're down there. It's quite a drive so we might as well make a vacation out of it!
