Cupcake (Half)Marathon 2011

Since I got a late start on the mileage, I opted for the half marathon distance for the Cupcake Marathon which is so awesomely being put on by Jason @ Cook Train Eat Race!

Me & my race bib

The first run I started with was my St. Pattys Day 10K last saturday. See the race report HERE.

 I finished the first 6.2 miles of my half marathon in 1:08:02 on a super hilly course. Here's the Garmin proof.

1 second off from official race time
My next run I did was tuesday for a treadmill speedwork run. I was only scheduled for 28 min of running, but pressed on to get my 2.9 that I wanted for the cupcake race in 33:14. Heres the treadmill proof

My last run for the cupcake run was a thursday treadmill hill workout. I did 3 miles in 35:03.

My Cupcake (Half)Marathon total
miles: 13.16
time: 2:16:19
An PRish race haha I'd LOVE a 2:16 Half!

Now I'm dreaming of these...

My roomate brought some home from Crumbs Bake Shop in New Jersey & they were to die for.
Motivation to run.

I'm still putting my times in to the spreadsheet, but I'm pretty sure I completed the marathon. Now to find cupcakes!
