Sorry peeps, I don’t have split times and an average pace for you today. I had a Garmin malfunction, caused by me. The wind was blowing my earphones out of my ears (good times) and around mile 3 I stopped and readjusted my iPod. I stopped my Garmin and then never started it again. Thankfully, I’m obsessed with watching my pace and noticed that the numbers weren’t moving about a mile later. It could have been worse (devastating, I know). I think my average pace was around 9:20…at least that’s what the Garmin kept saying throughout my run. Since I ran 17 and 20 miles the last 2 weekends at Kelly Drive, I estimated where the turnaround would be for 18 miles. Not a bad run, MUCH better than last week, only had to slow to a crawl for a few icy spots.
Onto more fun things! Last night my family got together to celebrate the February birthdays. We celebrate early since my snowbird parents head to the Florida Keys in mid-February. Usually it’s my birthday (2/9), my mom (2/24), and my nieces Catherine (2/28) and Sarah (3/9) but we have an addition this year…Hawk! Our buddy turns 1 on 2/23! After dinner we headed back to our house for cake and ice cream. The delicious cake from Bredenbeck’s (seriously this cake is amazing, if you need a cake in the Philly area go here!)…
Yes, that’s what the cake said. When I called Bredenbeck’s I warned the woman that I was going to ask for something different to be written on the cake. Apparently they get strange requests all the time. So this is perfectly normal.
Some more pics…
“The Others” also enjoyed the cake. In fact, we have leftovers and I think cake would be the perfect post-run fuel right about now…
PS – I’m on Twitter! And I have no idea what I’m doing! If you are a twitter-er (tweeter?), please follow me!
That cake looks delicious! I LOVE bakery cake!
I am the same way when my garmin stops working. I almost feel like I can’t even run. Or that if I do run, it doesn’t really count if I’m not recording it on garmin. Must get over that.
I’m gonna go to twitter now and follow you. I’m @mattlegal
Thanks Cindi — I’ll do the same 🙂
