What: Jess (Run with Jess) hosted the 3.7 Cupcake Classic virtual race for her birthday and to raise money for the American Cancer Society.

None of us ran for time. We just had fun running and chatting! Thanks for holding the race, Jess! And happy birthday!
I stopped at a local coffee stand and ordered a small eggnog latte. It went perfect with the muffin Alma made! The coffee stand owner took one look at me (soaked) and asked me what I’d been doing. I told him I went for a run. “You are dedicated,” he said, but I confessed that I didn’t know it was raining till I was getting in my car. Too late to turn back then! I was committed. Or…maybe I/we should be committed.
*We have a very relaxed group called the Women Runners of King County (WeROKC). If you live in the Seattle (King, Pierce or Snohomish counties included) area and want to be added to the group, or would like more information, e-mail me at kerrie (at) sanitydepartment (dot) com. We organize group runs through a locked Facebook group page. We also communicate about upcoming races, etc., on the page.
I looked at the rain Saturday morning and said looks like I am going to Spin Class. You ladies Rock!
That would be so fun to run with you ladies.
Us pacific northwestern girls just get used to the rain don't we? You are just getting geared up for our long winter of rain! I'm actually getting a treadmill this winter so I don't have to run in the rain so much. This looks so fun and your eggnog latte sounds Heavenly after a cold wet run!
Never met another Carla in the running world. Now you have pictures with TWO? I no longer feel special 🙂
Great picture of you guys! I love the running skirt of the girl on the right.
Aw, you know you woulda been out there even if you HAD known it was raining! 😉 Yup, we're all (dedicated) crazies!
I love how you ran for fun in the pouring down rain in honor of Jess and the ACS! Happy Cupcake Day 🙂
Sounds like fun, rain and all! It's almost funny how awful it feels to step right in a puddle, when you're soaked to the bone already anyway! Fun recap!
Wow! Kudos to you girls for getting it done!!! Love the recap!
Glad I finally got to run with this group!
You guys all look great…even if you are soaked to the bones! 🙂
It's a good think I don't live on the west coast – not sure I could run in the rain as often as you ladies do!! Thanks for “virtual” celebrating my birthday with me! 🙂
Saturday morning was super gross. I hid inside and did yoga in the morning and by the evening it cleared up and was nice for my frisbee games,way to get your run in though!
You ARE dedicated!! Way to go!! I soo know what you mean about a soggy shoe, I stepped in a puddle on a 4 mile run last year while training for my half, luckily I was on the last mile because it was soo squishy and not fun!
