I was super excited to run my first Hot Chocolate race this year and thankfully that excitement didn't go away when I heard it went virtual due to covid restrictions. The amazing swag more than made up for the missed in person experience, I mean how can you beat chocolate?!?! When my swag arrived in the mail I was immediately impressed by the hoodie, it is high quality, looks amazing, and fits perfectly! I broke my cardinal rule of not wearing my finisher gear before I complete the race because it was just too cozy! The swag bag also contained two pieces of chocolate, two bags of hot cocoa mix, a bib, a sample of Nuun hydration, and an awesome medal that had a BONUS piece of chocolate! I am super excited to hopefully have an opportunity to run the HC Seattle in person next year as I've heard the expo and race experience are amazing.
