2018 Chicago Hot Chocolate 15K/5K
Thursday, November 09, 2017
Back in 2012 I started training for the Hot Chocolate 5K. My best friend Beauty_Within joined me. Neither of us actually made it to the 5K that year but Vicque made it in 2014; not only did she go in 2014 but she finished it. I was so amazingly proud of her, and a little jealous too. I still have not made it to the Hot Chocolate 5K.

Between Vic's passing in September and seeing stuff in my facebook feed about this year's HC 5K I've made the decision that I WILL finally make it to AND finish the 2018 Chicago Hot Chocolate 5K. I do not care if I run, jog, walk or crawl; I WILL FINISH. I will do it in Vicque's Honor and Memory. 6 years after first starting to train for it before the rheumatoid arthritis derailed me and life kept derailing me further, I will accomplish this goal. And I know she'll be with me every step of the way.
