The Cupcake Classic

Today I participated in the Cupcake Classic to celebrate Jess's 37th birthday. The premise of the virtual race was 3.7 miles and then celebrate with a cupcake. I looked forward to this run all day.  I was a bit nervous about it because my knee has been acting a bit wonky lately, but I figured if it started to bother me too much I could finish the race by walking. As soon as I got off work I stopped my the local cupcake shop.
This was my second time to visit the cupcake shop, but my first time to buy a cupcake.  There were so many yummy cupcakes to choose from.
I chose a pink champagne cupcake...because it was so cute.
After picking out my cupcake I drove over to the gym. I had originally planned to run the Cupcake Classic outside, but it was soo cold today and raining a bit, and I didn't have the proper attire. This is my before picture.

The run went great...I was able to stay between 4.3 - 5.5 the entire time. I also almost broke my 2 mile PR (this has really inspired me to start working towards this goal again). I finished the 3.7 mile in 45:28 and was super stoked with this time.

This picture is gross! LOL I couldn't wait to get back to my car and eat my cupcake!!
And it was delicious!!! Thanks so much to Jess for organizing this super fun run!! I hope you have an amazing Birthday!!!
