Last week I shared how the running bug bit me and I was really enjoying my return to the sport. Well, I decided to go with the momentum and sign up for a race this fall! I am running the inaugural Kona Chocolate 10k in Plymouth!
I have had my eye on the Hot Chocolate Runs for a while now. Last year I was planning to run the race in Chicago as it landed on my 30th birthday and we were in town to celebrate…but it was sold out. Boo. But, Kona puts on an awesome race. The swag bag is full, there are great sponsors and the money raised goes towards local charities.
The Kona run will be extra fun because I will be running in my hometown and my bestie/running freak is joining me! She is the one I went to cheer on at her first marathon earlier this year and is the one that got me into running in the first place. It will be so much fun to run together again.
One run on in the calendar for 2013. I’m looking to add a few more; maybe a 5k and a half marathon? I haven’t run a half in a while, but maybe this running momentum will be motivation?
What are your favorite races?
Is there a race you have always wanted to run? I have always wanted to run a Rock and Roll race. They look like a total blast!
