Hot Chocolate 15K/5K Race Entry Giveaway!

Just in time for a Christmas giveaway, the Hot Chocolate race series asked if I would be an official ambassador for them again this year and of course I said yes!  I will be running the San Francisco Hot Chocolate 15K on January 11th and am really looking forward to it- I ran the 5K this year and it was so much fun that I signed up for the race again next year way before they asked me to come back as a Hot Chocolate Blogger- all my bias aside, it is truly a fun race I’m sure to do annually!

Not only is the course beautiful here in SF (oh how I love running Golden Gate Park!) but the schwag really can’t be beat!  You get a reusable drawstring bag and a gender-specific, fleece lined, full-zip hoodie, a sweet chocolate bar medal for the 15K, plus a huge post-race mug filled with goodies and a warm chocolate sauce for dipping- YUM!  For even more schwag, be sure to enter code SFBlogger4 when you register to get a free Hot Chocolate running hat at packet pick up! Love great race schwag!!!

But before you register, please keep reading to find out how to enter for a chance to win a FREE ENTRY to ANY upcoming Hot Chocolate race in 2015 (San Francisco, Atlanta, Dallas, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, San Diego, Seattle, Nashville, and Las Vegas)!

Myself and BFF Amy- Happy Hot Chocolate Runners!

See Jane Run WINNERS!

Your comments, shares, likes, tweets and pins are in and I am happy to announce the winners of my Mother’s Day Giveaway for 3 race entries to the See Jane Run half marathon and 5K race for champagne and chocolate on June 8th, here in Alameda.

I just know the suspense is killing you but before I announce the winners, I want to explain how they were chosen… each person that left a comment was given a number on a spreadsheet- let’s say Amy was first, she got #1. Then Jane was second, left a comment and tweeted the link, so she got #2 and #3. Then Anna was third, left a comment, shared the link, liked my page AND pinned the post she got #4, 5, 6, and 7. And so on and so forth until my spreadsheet had over 70 entries total! Woo hoo!

... and a free race entry!

… and a free race entry!
