Then Kristen sends me an email about the possibility of doing the Hershey Half Marathon. Hummm a half marathon and chocolate??
Sounds fun! Then I read this:
Water/aid stations will be available throughout the course, including a unique Chocolate Aid station, to assist runners toward the finish line.
What!? A chocolate aid station?? I'm in! Turns out this race is the weekend after the Army 10 miler, so it fits perfectly into my schedule! I can't wait to see the race bling for this run too! They also include tickets to Hershey Park after Dark the night before the race. So that should be cool. I am not really a big ride person, but I love amusement parks for the people watching. I am sure I will ride some of the rides, just not the roller coasters. I have a fear of throwing up on someone. So I tend to stay away from the coasters.
After I have decided to run the Hershey run, I get yet another email. This one is talking about the Hot Chocolate 5K/15K that is coming to DC. It seems like the universe wants me to only run for chocolate! So Megan and I are signing up for this one too. We are going to do the 5K. It is in December, so hopefully it won't be that cold or wet. :) We get a windbreaker with this race and of course chocolate!
Looks like my fall race schedule is filling up. I am still thinking of doing a 5K with the 3rd-5th grade girls at school. I think it might work out better if we run in the fall instead of the spring. So I guess I will have to look into a race for them.
