HOT CHOCOLATE 2016 October 30 CHICAGO 15K FINISH! YAY!!!
it was a fun event although it required quite a bit of planning supplied by a dear friend Mary who was unable to run due to a training issue. Also not inexpensive. But the hot chocolate was delicious and worth running 9.3 miles to drink; collecting the medal, heavier than it looks...so cool, was a thrill!
The Hot Chocolate 15K/5K is one of the few organized races I will run this year. It caused me to be appreciative of all the incredibly detailed and careful work that goes into organized races, but also grateful I have Earned Runs bibs to use more regularly without needing to make hectic arrangements. I visited and ran with family and enjoyed staying with friends, which made it the most special weekend ever. The World Series was in town and added to the "WOW" feeling of the experience.
I do love Chicago + family + friends.
BRIDGE TO PHYSICAL SELF
Running, walking, and fitness activities enable us to experience our physical selves in a world mostly accessed through use of fingers on a mobile device.
EARNED RUNS is edited and authored by me, runner and founder. I began participating in road races before 5Ks were common. I've been a dietitian, practiced and taught clinical pathology, and been involved with research that utilized pathology. I am fascinated with understanding the origins of disease as well as health.
