I am Running4Cupcakes!

The best thing happened to me this morning. . .

it was not having to get up a bazillion times to console Luke who is getting his molars. . .

it was not getting up  at 4:40am to teach the 5:30am body pump class at the YMCA.


it was getting recognized as Running4Cupcakes!

I was getting my equipment set up and walked past another YMCA member setting her stuff up, and she looks up, and says – are you Running4Cupcakes? And I was totally surprised and flattered to be “recognized.”

Becky – you totally made my day!! Smile 

It turns out that Becky is an ultra-marathoner living in Mankato with her own blog – Prairie Runner. <—check it out!!

Becky blogs at Olives ‘n’ Wine. . . about healthy living, training for her 1st marathon and drinking wine!
