Cocoa Beano Race: Running for Chocolate and giving back to children

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?
