Daily Herald report

Delicious pastries and physical fitness usually don't go hand in hand, but they made the perfect pairing Sunday at the third annual Ooh La La Chocolate 5K in downtown Geneva.

Hosted by award-winning Chef Alain Roby of Geneva's All Chocolate Kitchen, the annual run raises awareness for St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital.

Runners who braved Sunday morning's chilly and damp weather were rewarded at the finish line with a custom medal, an All Chocolate Kitchen sweatshirt and, best of all, a chocolate experience provided by Chef Roby, who was named the 2013 Pastry Chef of the Year by the Chicago Culinary Museum and recently inducted into their Chef Hall of Fame.
