I ran for a cupcake today

Happy birthday to Jess
(Women Runners of King County, organized by MomVsMarathon's Kerrie T) 
group mobilized early this morning, in the DARK, to 


AvgWoman, Foil-wrapped Runner, K, Zoe

this one includes Kerrie! 
It's been a long time since I have had the pleasure of running with these ladies and longer since I ran on the Cedar River Trail. The best surprise this morning was seeing ZOE, recently returned from China.

It was a WET one, not the usual drizzle that Seattle is famous for, but the pouring rain that makes it pointless to even think about staying dry. Heading out, we were a dark mass with beaming headlamps. Strange enough, we encountered another group of 4 or 5 women coming toward us on the trail, in the dark (they didn't have headlamps!). We weren't the ONLY crazy ones out this morning? 

The rain subsided a bit as we finished and allowed us to snap a couple photos and munch a cupcake. I had made applesauce spice muffins (why do my muffins stick to the paper?!) for treats, too.

Good luck to 'K' who is running Marine Corps Marathon next weekend & good luck to anyone else racing this weekend!


  1. Aw, sorry about the rain...but you guys look adorable.

  2. Maybe the other group was also running for cupcakes? :)

    The photos (cupcakes in the rain!) made me smile.

  3. It was so great to run with you, and the muffin was delicious! It went well with the white mocha I had on the way home.

  4. Cute pictures, looks like a fun run even though it rained. Good for you!
