Great scott, I have to STOP eating this cake!
this is my very favorite cake – yes, I know, it doesn’t seem like much but chocolate cake with rainbow chip icing is sooo tasty! It can’t be funfetti – it has to be rainbow chip :)
Speaking of all that cake, I had a run tonight. It was a free organized “race” that I signed up for last week with my friend Emily. I had no idea I was going to overdose on sugar the whole weekend and NOT want to put on tight pants and run around downtown Kalamazoo. But I try not to flake (I used to be really bad about this) so I boot-scooted it to Em’s place. Emily wasn’t super jazzed to run this lil’ 5k either but we pep talked ourselves out the door. Win #1
It was fairly chilly but the run turned out pretty fun. Em and I kept up a decent pace – probably around 10:15, that still allowed us to chat. It was nice not to have the garmin or music but instead enjoying running with a friend. After, there was a small reception at our local running store (which I LOVE!). Before the race, I didn’t get to eat much and there were some appetizers and seriously, I could have eaten the whole bowl of spinach dip. I was very hungry! There was a raffle and guess what? I won a prize! Win #2
Today my Aspaeris Pivot compression shorts came in the mail! The shorts are supposed to help the alignment of your knees, encourage healthy legs and made especially for women! I bought them to wear for the Ragnar Relay, although wearing them for 36 hours might get a bit uncomfortable. And smelly. I’ll bring Febreze. I purchased them last week when they were half off but when I pulled them out of the packaging, I was a bit worried
But they actually fit and make my hips and thighs look 2 sizes smaller. Win #3
I made some cookies yesterday as I “bartered” for some lessons with an online photo editing program, Pixler.com. I am SUPER excited and making cookies was the least I could do. But I couldn’t decide whether or not to make chocolate chip or vanilla chip so I combined the chips and a little baking magic happened. They were good. The other tidbit about these cookies is they are made with a cake mix. People literally think I am Betty Crocker incarnate. But I can’t take all of the credit. I’ll post the recipe tomorrow… maybe ;) Nevertheless, I got the better end of the deal. Win #4
I’m very happy I ran tonight and currently I am making my spring race schedule. I’ll post the races I’m looking at this week – yay for motivation!
