I’m a woman who thrives for days on chocolate, a little bit of coffee, de-stressing, and running. It is the perfect balance to creating a healthy lifestyle balanced with some moderation. Personally, I know a lot of people feel the same. How would we get along in our crazy lifestyles without taking a break to embrace our active java and chocolate junkie lifestyles?
With our beautiful riverfront trails to run and walk on and beautiful, historic downtown village areas, it’s not a surprise that many of us run past Lagomarcino’s (a Quad Cities staple) and think about how we can tie together keeping active and eating delicious chocolate.
Have no fear, because Lagomarcino’s and the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Mississippi Valley have come together to create the race of the fall season, where you can run for chocolate, while at the same time supporting the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Mississippi Valley. It’s local mission is “to inspire and enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible, and caring citizens.”
On Saturday, October 28th, give back to the community and take care of all the children in the Quad Cities and greater Mississippi Valley area by participating the Lagomarcino’s/Boys & Girls Clubs of the Mississippi Valley Cocoa Beano 5K race!
The race begins at 9 A.M., alongside the Lagomarcino’s location in the Village of East Davenport, IA, at 2132 East 11th Street. Registration includes a running jacket and, of course, a free Lago’s hot chocolate and chocolate delicacy upon completion of the race. Visit Lagomarcino’s website, or the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Mississippi Valley for registration prices and more information.
