Cupcakes and races.

The Freihofer's Run for Women is in two days. Sure, it's "just" a 5K but it happens to be my goal race and I really want to run well. So I'm nervous. And have been. Because that's what I do: Get all kinds of freaked before my races.

But I also have the multiple birthday celebrations that are de rigueur these days with the preschool set. My little guy will be turning 4 (4!?!) so today was his preschool birthday party.

Dinosaur Train cupcakes were in order:

OK, yeah, the green doesn't match Tiny
(the pteranodon for those of you who don't have to watch the show over and over) but I tried.

An army of Buddy and Tiny!

Goofing out.
Conal had been asking for a Dinosaur Train cake for his birthday so I went for a modified version for the preschool party and did the cupcakes. I printed out about a million copies of an image that I grabbed from the infonet, cut them out, lined up two back-to-back and then taped them together with a toothpick in the middle. Viola! Instant (two hours later...) decoration!

The cakes for his next parties will be a different story. I really need to get on that . . .

In the meantime, though, I have a race to freak-out about prepare for. My last pre-race run is tonight and then I'll firm up my goals tomorrow. Woo hoo!

Have a great day, everyone! Don't forget to enter my two giveaways -- Onlineshoes.com/Saucony ends tonight and Bengay ends Monday.

Aw. Very cute idea!

I get freaked out too. Especially the minutes before the race starts. Last race I was saying to my Hubz. "Are you ready? It's on. It's game time. Let's get this show going... etc. etc."

He thought I was crazy. LOL!!

I am excited to hear how everyone does on Sat. I am sure it will go great for you. I get really nervous at the Freihofer because of all the hype in the beginning. I will be WAY in the back. If you see an ambulance go by I may be in it.;)
