Jim received entry into the Rock ‘n’ Roll Half-Marathon in Chicago this weekend in exchange for our coverage of the race and Chocolate Milk. All opinions (and actual physical exertion) are our own.
It’s no secret that I’ve recently in the past half year or so taken up running, but long before I ever did, my hot husband was training for and running marathons. In fact, he’ll be running the Chicago Marathon AGAIN this year in honor of the American Cancer Society for our loved ones who are currently battling or have battled cancer. While pushing himself during the training season, he SWEARS BY and we have to keep fully stocked in our refrigerator, the awesome power of chocolate milk. He uses it to refuel and recharge after long runs and hard workouts.
