I'm Doing It! The 2018 Chicago Hot Chocolate 15K/5K

Thursday, January 11, 2018

The one thing I truly asked for as a Christmas gift, my Mom did for me. She knows what this event will mean to me.

I am grateful, excited, terrified, and optimistic all at once! LOL I look forward to taking my time with training and doing something healthy and fun in my soul-sister's honor and memory. I know if she were still here she would be training right along with me like we did back in 2012.

I asked her husband yesterday if I could have either or both Vicque's Finisher's Medal and/or Race Bib (number) from when she did it in 2014. I'd really like to have them with me on race day if possible. He said he would look around for where she had them put away.

I have about 9 months to do my training and ease my body back into it. I can do it. I WILL do it. For Vicque. For myself. For my grief. For my healing. I miss her something fierce.
