Marvelous Hot Chocolate Fun

The weather here in Dallas has been like a roller-coaster, and three days before the event, we get snow.  It’s also packet pick-up day, and I was the one designated to pick-up all packets.  I was a little bit anxious about driving, so I took Dart, that’s Dallas Metro transit system, and it worked out great. My only problem was I had super frozen toes, I wasn’t prepared for walking in the snow, I should have worn two pairs of socks.

Friday was cold and windy, I was oh so hoping that we would not have the wind Saturday morning. It was forecast to be a bit warmer Saturday morning, and it was, I was so happy, and there was very little wind.  We arrived at 6:30 am, one hour before the event was to start.

Here we are at the start line, left to right, Adrianne, Kara,Myself and Pamela. Unfortunately Pamela couldn’t stay for the hot chocolate, she had a busy day planned with her children.

It was cloudy and just a bit of mist in the air, and the temperature was good, not too cold.

We were all ready for hot chocolate after our run. I’m not sure if our excitement kept us warm before the run or if the temperature dropped after, but Oh My Gosh, it was so cold. We all felt so much colder after the run, my poor fingers went from being numb to down right painful.

We couldn’t resist, we had to take a picture in front of the Hot Chocolate sign.

On our walk back to the car we were given info for the Wicked Wine Run on March 29th, here in the DFW area and April 19th in Austin, TX.

I could run for some wine.

  1. Sounds like you ladies had a wonderful run, Celeste! Such a fun way to get in some girltime :)

  2. Looks like so much fun, but a wine run?! Now that’s a good decision.

  3. I’m so jealous, I keep waiting for that race to come somewhere close to me at a time I can actually run in it! Glad you had so much fun!

  4. That looks like so much fun–what a cool idea for a race. I know that hot chocolate must have tasted really good after running in the cold!
