I had originally planned to Sparkle my way through the Cupcake Classic, but as I drove to the high school we were meeting at I decided to skip the Team-Sparkle Skirt and add my raincoat instead. This was a good choice. I also left my phone and iPod in the car as I just didn't want to risk it.
Since I am supposed to be walking, I decided to run with Julie's daughter Alli. Her goal was to run the straight aways, and walk the curves. I brought my Garmin so we wouldn't have to count laps. We started on our way. It rained, rained some more oh and rained some more. I don't think it stopped raining the entire time.
After we completed the 5K, we continued walking around the track while Julie's kiddos participated in a Lacross clinic. After 4.5 miles we called it! We were starting to get cold and I think we all were ready for a cupcake. Julie brought me two cupcakes, one for me and one to take home to my kiddo......
....shhh don't tell anyone but they both didn't make it home!
After I got home instead of heading right to the shower, I hopped on the treadmill to finish out my last 1.5 miles to reach my goal of 6 miles for the day. I mean I had an extra cupcake to work off anyways.
A big thank you to Jess @ runwithjess.comfor hosting the Cupcake Classic - it is one virtual race that I look forward to.
Did you or are you participating in the Cupcake Classic?
