5K and Cupcakes

Me & JC at the 5K!
Today, I ran the Girls on the Run 5K in Savannah.  It's the 2nd of the 10 x 5Ks I am trying to run for my "Before I'm 30" list.  I ran about a minute faster than the last 5K, so I was happy.  I did the race with my friend JC, who ran with me in college!  (Actually, I didn't really run with her, she was 2nd overall and kicked some major butt!)  At 26:28, I was about a minute faster than the Turtle Trot!

After the 5K, I insisted that we check out a cupcake shop I'd heard of, Gigi's Cupcakes.  I was FLOORED by how adorable this place was!  They have tons of flavors, and we got there early enough to have our pick of the bunch.  I bought a half dozen!  (Flavors change daily... kind of like other chain cupcake shops.)  It really made me think how I'd LOVE to franchise one of these stores... if I won the lottery and didn't think it was a bit risky.

We rounded out our trip to Savannah with a stop at Panera for some soup & breadbowls.  :)  Everything before noon!  It's not even 2 p.m. and I already have declared today to be AWESOME.

At the store... yum!
My choices
Happy Weekend, everyone!

P.S.  My Top 5 favorite store-bought cupcakes are:
1.  Sprinkles
2.  Gigi's Cupcakes (they've really impressed me!)
3.  Back in the Day Bakery
4.  Georgetown Cupcake
5.  Magnolia Bakery

I really want to try Crumbs Bake Shop cupcakes sometime to see where they stack up... but I need to get to NY or LA again for that!
