Cupcake Classic 2.0

Posted Oct 16 2012 8:00am
I hate running in the rain, unless it is race day. I know I live in the wrong state but I don't like being wet. With that said I have ran more races in the rain then not - so I clearly don't hate it that much.  We have had an AMAZING fall so far - yet the one weekend I planned to participate in the Cupcake Classic the forecast called for 100% rain.

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......
