If you’ve been following my story, you’ll know I was planning to run the Hot Chocolate 15k in Chicago this weekend. However, if you also follow me on Instagram, you’ll know I had my wisdom teeth extracted last week and the experience has been less than pleasant. My wisdom teeth ordeal has resulted in not being able to participate in this weekend’s race which is a shame because I was excited to celebrate the 10 Year Anniversary of Hot Chocolate Chicago; the race that made me fall in love with running as a sport in 2014 and the race that is also put on by my company, RAM Racing (disclaimer: I was registered for the race long before knowing about the opportunity at RAM). Thankfully because I do work at RAM, I’m able to still be at the event and live-promote all of you on social (so be on the lookout for a girl all bundled up with chipmunk cheeks taking pictures)!
As you know, I make a new playlist for each race I participate in. I was intending to use the HC15k as a shakeout post-marathon (fun fact, that was the original idea behind HC Chicago along with providing a well-organized race & fun after-party) therefore I took all of my favorites from that playlist, added a few of my newer obsessions and boom, Hot Chocolate 15k 2017 Playlist. I hope you all enjoy it!
