Instead, I ran my Frosty's Great Cupcake Race. It is run by my friend Darlena from Run Find Yor Happy Pace and Cara at Running In Sanity. I chose the 10K option, and also ordered the snowflake Happy Band.
The weather here was cloudy and foggy, so I didn't take any pics while I was running. I started out wearing a running cap, but stopped halfway through and ditched it at home. It really was a great run. It didn't feel that way at first, know what I mean? My last run was a week ago, 17 miles, and I felt a little stiff today. I was checking my watch for distance but not really for time, and I was pleased to see my time when I finished!
That is only about 30 seconds behind my best 10K race time! The medal is seriously cute, there are better pics at the above websites. They even had a 5K and kid's race option. SO cute! I love their cupcake medals!
I can't believe I finished week 23 of training today. The Disney Marathon is only 5 weeks away! Holy heck!
I promised a giveaway, didn't I? A couple weeks back I received a lovely box in the mail from Tropical Traditions! I have never smelled anything so coconutty-licious! I can't wait to try out all of the wonderful suggestions in their video (check it out below!) They have generously offered a jar for one of my readers to try!
