"You Run Hills, I Run Mountains" Double Blue Ridge Take 2

I'm pretty behind in my blogging/social media stuff so forgive the delay.  After finishing the double blue ridge on April 18th, my sister called to say our mom was in the hospital.  Mom actually just came home this past Sunday.  It was a long, tough week especially for her.  She was in a tremendous amount of pain that they could not figure out.  As I do not want to turn this into a post about that whole story, I will get to the point.  Ultimately they found a significant femur fracture for which she had surgery. She never fell or had any trauma which caused the difficulty in diagnosis.  As it turns out it was caused by taking a medication called fosamax which is taken to prevent osteoporosis. Pretty ironic isn't it?!  Anyway she's home now and on the mend so I'm finally able to focus on a little blog writing.

Did someone say CHOCOLATE?!?!

Philly Hot Chocolate 15K

Disclaimer: I received entry to Philly Hot Chocolate 15K as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out to review find and write race reviews!

Being a BibRavePro is a blast which is why I love to promote for them whenever I can.  That's why when I was given the chance to run the Philly Hot Chocolate 15K it was a no brainer to say yes, even though it was a mere 6 days after the Ocean Drive Marathon

I've never run a Hot Chocolate race so I wasn't sure exactly what to expect.  I assumed there would be chocolate in some capacity but that was about it.
