While drumming up a list of future races in Friday's post , I realized I forgot to mention The Cupcake Classic!
Yeah, I know. Cupcakes + running? Huh?
Blogger Jess from Run With Jess hosted this 3.7-mile virtual race in celebration of her 37th birthday and, of course, a love for cupcakes! You can read about The Cupcake Classic here . Almost 200 participants were signed up virtually in addition to those that were going to run the race with Jess in Illinois.
Kevin agreed to run the race with me yesterday by completing a 3.7-mile loop around our neighborhood. It was a chilly morning - temps in the mid 40's! - and so I donned a pair a running tights for the first in months.
However, the weather proved to be a big help for my already slow pace, as did Kevin's faithful trotting alongside of me. He kept me moving through the whole thing, even when I was tired, and my pace varied wildly from the 9:30's to the low 11's.
