This time of year, it’s get difficult to stick to an outdoor running schedule when winter means less daylight, many below-freezing mornings, snow, freezing rain and black ice. One thing keeping me motivated to stick to my runs is that I have two winter races planned: the Hot Chocolate 5K in Atlanta on Jan. 26, 2014 and Hot Chocolate 15K in Nashville on Feb. 15. I will run for chocolate, and I hope you’ll join me.
Being a race ambassador comes with great perks (like this headband I adore), and in spirit of giving, I’m sharing some even better prizes with my readers. Register for the Hot Chocolate 5K or 15K in Atlanta or Nashville using code BRUNCHERMUG and receive a bonus travel mug. And enter using the Rafflecopter below for chance to win a free race entry that can be redeemed for any of the Hot Chocolate 5K/15K races. The series has races left in:

The Hot Chocolate 5K/15K is probably the sweetest race you’ll ever run. Registration for the chocolate-themed winter race includes a fleece made of moisture-wicking material making it perfect for your chilly winter runs. And the run ends with chocolate party complete with not only hot chocolate but also chocolate fondue to cover your post-race recovery snacks. You can’t tell me that doesn’t sound delicious.
The race also benefits Ronald McDonald House Charities, which serves traveling families with lodging, laundry facilities, meals as their children receive treatment in pediatric hospitals.
I hope to see you there.
