the real reason I run ...

I know I've said that I run because it is my passion. Because it has made me a better wife, mother and me. All of that is true, but if we are being honest, there's more to this story. The real reason I run might just be because of these ...
Say hello to my birthday cupcakes! (courtesy of my hubby who braved the snow to get them.) Talk about yumtastic. And high calorie. Now, you can see why one of my 2010 goals is to eat less than 50 cupcakes. If I ate anymore than that I'd never do anything but run ...

Happy Birthday! Im not a huge fan of cake, but I LOOOOVE cupcakes! Its my brothers birthday today, and I bought him a few specialty cupcakes (not to be feminine, he only likes a few bites, so this way he can have a variety...) This way I also get to have one!

Enjoy your cupcakes, they look yummy!

Those are so beautiful. I would love to eat them all but am saved many times (at least I choose to take that perspective) by a gluten intolerance! Happy Birthday and do enjoy the yummyness!!
