Scooby Doo is hosting his own Virtual Run Series designed to keep you on the move!
A virtual run is similar to any other run except it can be completed at any location, time, or place of your choosing. All you need to do is register for one or both of the races, complete the distance during the allotted time frame, and log your miles.
You decide how, when, and where to cover the distance. You can run or walk it alone, with a gang of friends, or your favorite pet. Part of every registration helps the Best Friends Animal Society Animal Rescue.

Each year the Allstate Hot Chocolate 15K/5K offers bonus swag to runners who sign up early using a code. Last year it was a soft grey baseball cap with the HC15K logo. This year it's a phone holder armband.
I received a HC15K armband phone holder to test. I took it out for a run the other day, and I like it. I've been worried about carrying my phone in my pocket in the high temps this summer. I'm afraid it'll overheat and malfunction. So, lately I've held my phone in my hand to keep it cool while I run. But I don't like holding my phone while I run.
That's why I was happy to test running with my phone in an armband. I think it stayed cooler. And I didn't have to hold it. That's a win-win to me.
The Hot Chocolate 15K/5K in Tampa is Dec. 16
If you'd like a phone armband with the HC15K logo on it, register for the Tampa Hot Chocolate race on Sunday, Dec. 16th with the code: BRHCTAMPA18. Your new armband phone holder will be waiting for you at packet pickup.
Keep reading for more details on the armband and it's features. It's nice (and FREE) runner SWAG.

Reimbursement for Registration
The 3rd Annual Bradenton Conquistador Half and 5K scheduled for December 15th was officially cancelled today. The email to registered participants said a number of factors lead to the cancellation. No other details were given. Runners will receive registration refunds within 30 days.
President of the Hernando DeSoto Historical Society, John DeLesline, expressed regret that the event was cancelled. No word on if there will be a race next year. The first two years, the races were held in October. This year's event was moved from October to December.
Previous details about the race can be found here and here. I'm disappointed that I won't get to run this half in downtown Bradenton. But, my fingers are crossed the race will return at some point.
