Did you know: Hershey offers two sweet race weekends that comprise the Chocolate Town Challenge! I was treated to the sweetest opportunity a blogger could dream of: a trip to Hershey, Pennsylvania! I was hosted for the weekend in exchange for my honest opinions and reviews of the places we visited. Here are five reasons why runners love Hershey.
Runners are a funny breed of people. If you know one, you know what I’m talking about.
We willingly push our bodies to endure miles and miles of pain in all kinds of weather for the glory of a “free” t-shirt and to earn a medal.
Doesn’t sound logical, does it?
But to all you runners out there: I see you. I know you. And logic is low on the list of why we do what we do.
There are many reasons we run, and everyone has their personal thought process behind it.
For me, running is the worst. But I still do it. Lawd help me, I still get out there and put the miles in because at the end of the day, I need it. And sometimes I “need” a gorgeous medal to show off too.
And if you throw a destination race in there, I won’t complain either.
