Did you hear the news? See the medal?
Today (7/19/19) the Allstate Hot Chocolate 15K and 5K peeps announced a medal for 5K racers! That's right, starting with the 2019-2020 season, 5K runners will get a sweet medal.
In the past, all participants received the HC15K jacket and a finishers cup filled with chocolate fondue. But, only 15K runners received a medal.
Well, the folks at Ram Racing and the Hot Chocolate 15K & 5K heard the requests of 5K runners. They came through with a 5K medal!
Take a peek below, then go sign up for the Hot Chocolate 15K or 5K near you.
Hot Chocolate 5K Medals Start in Denver
The Denver race on October 6 is first in line for 5K medals. Check out the other cities in the graphic above. Besides the medals, the Hot Chocolate 15K/5K always puts on a great race with goodies on course, and the awesome finishers cup and swag shown below.
Hope to See You In Tampa!
Register for Tampa and I'll see you there. This is a fun and festive race that takes runners along Bayshore Blvd. just before Christmas. There are lots of decorations on the houses, and the runners. It's a scenic, fun run.
The weather has been perfect the past couple of years. But, it's Florida, so expect anything from a heat wave to a cold front. I enjoy this race because all the festive outfits help put me in the holiday mood. Plus, a 15K is a great way to burn off calories during the holidays.
I'm not an ambassador this year, but I wanted to get the word out that 5K runners get a medal. If I come across a code for bonus swag I'll pass it along. In the meantime, my advice is to register early for the best price. The price goes up October 13.
See you at the starting line!

This Summer feels hotter than last year. I've been working hard to acclimate — and feel good about my progress — but can't help worrying about heat exhaustion and dehydration.
When it's super hot and humid, I head for my fav shady spots.
Below are some places I like to run. Just looking at the shade makes me feel cooler. I hope it works for you, too.
