The 2nd annual Hot Chocolate 15K was, quite appropriately, run on Valentine's Day this year. It was very cold (21 degrees at start time) but 7,000 enthusiastic runners turned up to run regardless. From Bicentennial Park, through downtown, across the Church Street Bridge, toward Vandy, around Centennial Park, and back, it was a great course with several challenging hills. But oh, what a blast.
I had a 1:18.32 clock time; 1:24.48 gun time; 15K which comes out to about a 8.26 per mile pace. Not bad for an old geezer!
