I ran for a cupcake today


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

RUN FOR CUPCAKES!

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!

  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.
