So here I am ready for 14 miles, right?? After 2 weeks of not hitting 14 miles you think I would be pumped but not so much. It was rainy and a little chilly and I just had that "lets stay home feeling". I even contemplated running all 14 on the treadmill so I could run the whole thing at a guaranteed 8:34 pace. I also wanted to finish last week's Biggest Loser but my husband reminded me that would be boring and I would probably quit before I got 14 in so I got dressed at left the house. Also, my husband checked the weather and said there was no wind so that helped make me think it would be an okay run. WELL guess what the wind showed up in the form of 37 mph gust! NOT FUN. It was so wet and windy I had no voice by the time my run was over. UGH!
Earlier in the week I received a little motivation; the Twisted Sifter (cake shopped) cupcake flavor list for the week. PINK VELVET was finally back on the menu. I have not been "allowed" to go until Pink Velvet was there. My whole run I was like "pink velvet, pink velvet". So at 11 miles I went in to order and get a little bounce back in my step for the last 3 miles. Guess what? NO pink velvet. I was super bummed but went ahead and ordered a Margarita cupcake plus 1 for the hubs and the kid.
