chocolate and running?? Oh yeah...

So I have slowly been getting back into the running thing.  I went to run club but ending up walking more than running..but I blame that on the heat and humidity (gotta blame it on something right?).  I really have not been looking into many races, but it seems some of them have been hunting me down.  The only race I had on my fall schedule was the Army 10 miler
 

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.
