The Great Cupcake Virtual Race :)

On September 12th, a friend and I participated in a virtual 5K called The Great Cupcake Race hosted by Run Find Your Happy Pace and Running In Sanity! They are trying to raise money for their Team In Training group benefiting the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society! 

We got a super cute cupcake medal!

And we received and wore our "Will Run for Cupcakes" Bondi Bands!

We had every intention of going to get amazing cupcakes from a food truck around the corner from where we ran...Until we found out they didn't open for lunch that day! Sad Face :(

Back up plan...Buy yummy cupcakes at Target, head to Chick Fil A for lunch, and eat our cupcakes at Chick Fil A!

The manager was walking around making sure everyone was doing ok and we asked him to take our picture...
Apparently he didn't know how to work an iPhone, so we have blurry pics of our kids and cupcakes! 
At least the cupcakes were yummy! :)

As for the run...well Since it's now October and I can't remember what I did yesterday (the joys of motherhood haha), I have no idea... I'm pretty sure it was a good run though, because it's always fun to run with friends! :)

And here's my little Princess with her crazy windblown hair eating at Chick Fil A! :)
 This was also my very first run with my BOB stroller!
That made it an even better race! :)

I'm participating in their 2nd virtual race The Great Pumpkin Race tomorrow!
I love a good virtual race because you get cute Bling, Run whenever you can, and are supporting a good cause! :) I'll put that race review soon, so I won't forget the details! Haha :)

Park Problem Solved! :)

Looks like I have found my park! It's about 10 min. away driving, but it is totally worth it! My run wasn't all that exciting, but the Park was! :) Here are my new running buddies! :) They are fun to watch while running by! :)  Yes that's my finger...The sun was very bright and I didn't see it! lol :) I just love it all!  Stopping to take pictures! :) I have to Thank my mom who actually Google Maped this Park for me! :) So glad she found it! :)  As for the run, I really don't know how long the trail is, so I don't even know how far I went! I made it all the way around, walking, in less than 15 min. so I am thinking that it is at least a mile. If it is, then I did 3 miles today! If not, then...I don't know! It's times like these that I wish I had my Garmin ! :) For the first 2 laps, I decided to just Run/Walk. I would run 5 min. walk for 1 or 2 min. Then the last lap I just walked the whole time. Just to enjoy it! I just have to say...the hills are

Cowtown Half Recap!

On Sunday, February 24, 2013 I ran my first official Half Marathon!  Before the race started, I met up with these fellow MRTT ladies!  Pic from How My World Runs It was freezing cold (yes 33 degrees is freezing to this Texan! haha) and I was hoping it wouldn't warm up too much because I run so much better in the cold. I ended up wearing my jacket the whole time and was completely comfortable! We had a wind advisory in affect and I think the wind made it even cooler. This was also my first time to run with my new haircut and with my hair down! Didn't bother me at all! Short hair for the win! :) I was in the very last Corral to start. Yes, I know I'm slow. Get Over it!<---Saw that saying on several shirts throughout the race!  Looks like I need one! haha :) I had to post this pic, because I have no idea what I was doing, nor remember even taking it! Haha! About 20 min before the race, I headed to the porta potty's. Yeah, I should have
