Tomorrow morning is the 10th annual Hot Chocolate Run Chicago. This will be my second Hot Chocolate Run. Last November, I placed 2nd in my division in Columbus, Ohio. This year will be different, as I am not fully racing due to running a full marathon in a week. This will be just for fun with no time goal. I will probably be running between a 7:30-8:00 pace.
So why run it if I am not going to run hard? Well, running my last “long run” with thousands of other runners that to run alone. Plus the chocolate aid stations will be nice as well.
Tomorrow’s run will be cold with temps in the low 30s. Time to break out the warm running gear. Going to have to dig those out tonight as they have not been unpacked from our recent move.
Tina will also be running tomorrow as I won her a free race entry on Twitter. So we will e leaving for Chicago early in the morning since I have already picked up our bibs at the expo on Friday. We will be meeting up with our friends (and BibRave Pros) Heather and Frank. And who knows, maybe Tina and I will get some deep dish pizza after the race. Have a great weekend everyone!
