Cupcakes and Treadmills



I'm an official finisher of the Cupcake Marathon, running over 26.2 miles in five separate runs.  Aside from my run on Saturday, these were done on my basement treadmill, at an incline of .05, with a little help from MTV, VH1, Fuse, Fox News, the Today Show, Sister Wives, and Bethenny Ever After. 

Luckily I remembered to take photographic evidence, although Miss E wanted to take a picture of me and my race bib (with #23, which was my number way back when I played field hockey).    Note her cupcake jewlery box, which is the closest I came to a real cupcake, since I'm in the middle of my weight loss challenge.




Well, here are the results:



Run #1 March 14:





Run #2 March 15:



Run #3, March 18. You can tell this was the day after St. Patty's Day:





Run #4, March 19, my only outdoor run of the week:





Run #5 March 21:





My last run on March 22, I only had to do 5.2, but I forgot, and ended up with 6.2:






I gave myself a high five. : )


Big Thanks to Jason at Cook Train Eat Race and Christel at Silly Girl Running for organizing!!

Great job putting it all together! Love the jewelry box. I should have used one of the kids' plastic play-food ones as I too am off of cupcakes for the foreseeable future.

Does anyone find it weird that we are trying to lose weight and running in a cupcake marathon?
