Runs For Chocolate

I'll do anything for chocolate.  :)  Including running a 5K in 30 degree temps.  Eh, who am I kidding, I'd do that without chocolate.  This morning my hubby and I ran a 5K sponsored by Bissinger's Chocolate in St Louis.   When you sign up you are categorized and you get the respective shirt: Bachelor, Bachelorette, Happy Couple, It's Complicated (teams of 3). . . . 

That's us before the race and a photo of our shirt.  The race wasn't in the best part of St Louis, but they had decent parking so that felt safe.  

We ran along the river! :)  It was actually a nice run.  The temps were perfect for running and it wasn't windy.  The temps have continued to drop through the day and the wind has picked up.  So we got really lucky. 

We were suppose to get a chocolate medal at the end.  We got a chocolate heart sucker. . . . 

They handed out chocolate during the race as well as at the beginning/end.  We grabbed quite a bit.  They also gave out some amazing hot chocolate.  YUM!

I didn't have my Garmin synched to GPS on time so it started about .10 mile behind.  Ugh.  Here are the results though: 

I was really surprised because we did a run/walk.  My husband doesn't train, but he has a pretty fast walk and also runs faster than me.  If he could sustain his run, he'd leave me in the dust.  My hubby shaved some time off his last chip timed 5K though, so he rocked it!

Of course I have to be a dork when crossing the finish! :) 

From the race we went to a few stores, got some free cupcakes at the bakery that did our wedding cake and went out for BBQ.  I will be fat on the scale tomorrow, but that's ok.  I'll buckle down tomorrow.  I would like to see the 180's soon!

As a side note, this morning was the end of my additional 2 weeks on the Advocare MNS phase.  I lost weight much slower.  But I wasn't as perfect. 

I weighed in at 194.6 this morning, but the app only allows whole numbers.  Losing an inch off my hips and waist is great. But I'm not sure I believe it.  I hate measuring.  Did I mention that.  So I guess I'm going to keep doing this in 2 week increments.  I have another box of MNS.  So at least 2 more weeks.  Fingers crossed the next 2 are better.  Today was not the best start.
