    This is what I made yesterday with my mixer. It really is the best!

    This is for a charity I'm part of, and will be going to the staff at the Neonatal Unit at the local hospital. I do this a couple of times a month, when my schedule allows.

    [Apologies to everyone who was expecting us to talk about running on a running thread. I mean, the more you run, the more you can enjoy this kind of stuff too!!!]

    Food and nutrition is totally running related. We just had like a 20 or 30 posts back and forth on it even. ;)

    Feb. Goal is complete, pending results... goal was to finish both marathons. 2nd was done today.

    Yay! Well done! Not many people can run 2 marathons in the same month!

    Hmm... well, I have done 3 a few times in the same month, but this was more or less trying to survive as my injuries are less healed than I wanted.

    I think if I ran to your house from mine I would more than earn the calories of an entire cake. :smiley:

    Only just. The caramel buttercream is a calorie bomb! But totally worth it

    YOU GUYS (and gals)! I RAN 18.03 MILES TODAY!

    I have 178.03 for the year, 33 for the week, which is a personal best, AND my best pace today was 10:22 !!!!!!!!!! That’s MINUTES faster than I have been doing outside!!!!!!!!

    I am so glad I got out even though I didn’t think I could even make it. It was a struggle this morning - could not stay away from the bathroom - hip hurt and knee hurt - but I wanted my miles so bad! I focused, kept my walking intervals short and structured, fueled on time, and just made myself keep going.

    On the last couple of miles, it didn’t even feel like my legs were made of lead, like the last long run. I felt as if I could go another few miles!

    I stretched a bunch when I got home, which I never do, but I’m hoping it’ll help with the hip and knee etc

    Of course I’m tired and sore now, but I am so so so glad I went and kept going for it. If I hadn’t, I would be beating myself up, I’d have zero personal bests, and I wouldn’t know I could have done it.

    Now.... lawd. I need a shower.

    Good luck tomorrow, @LoveyChar !!!! I am with you in spirit!

    I need a love button for this post. (Except for the pain.) awesome work. What an achievement.
