Will run for cupcakes

You'll have to take my word - it was delicious.

While volunteering at the PPTC Cherry Tree Run I found myself jealous of runners. Though I was having fun cheering, I wanted to run. Later, while discussing race plans over brunch I realized it was time to get back in a training plan. NYRR's Coogan's is around the corner and Ragnar is just a little over 10 weeks away.

The hills of Fort Tryon Park would laugh their inclines off if I showed up for Coogan's without training. Besides, a neighbor had promised me a key lime cupcake.

So I hit the hills yesterday afternoon. It was a moderate workout to ease back into it, making sure I left enough in the tank for another run today, but it was still a five miler worthy of a cupcake.

It was a great cupcake.

Disclaimer: Not in any way affiliated with @run4cupcakes though I probably would enjoy running (for cupcakes) with her.


  1. Mmm, I love Key Lime pie..I'm sure the cupcake was delish too!

  2. It was so good! I hear there's a version that includes pie filling and meringue on top. I wanna try it so badly!

  3. YUUUUM :) Definitely a great reason to run ;)

  4. I agree. Why isn't there a Cupcake 5K?

  5. OMG I would totally run for cupcakes!

    I am running Ragnar too! This will be my 2nd year.

  6. I'm sure cupcakes would be very popular in a Ragnar van.
