Hip Hip Pooh Ray for STEF! Recipe
Stefanie’s Baby Shower Cake!
The Looonnngggg run
This morning I got an early start because I wanted Shane to come with me for part of my long run. It was cooler this morning so Shane had an easier run. We did 7.13 miles then I continued on for another 7.87 miles. Total 15 miles today. 46.85 total miles this week.
I had a banana with 1 TBS PB to fuel the run. I took water with me plus some Sports Beans which I didn’t end up eating. It wasn’t warm enough and my sweating was only minimal.
From miles 1 to 7.13, Shane and I made two water stops. Average pace = 9.51
I had a Cliff Shot (mocha flavor) when I took Shane back to the house, then immediately set out again for the rest of my run. Stop time at the house, about 5 minutes.
Miles 7.14 to 15, I was on my own and had a sip of water when entering the golf course. There were a lot of people out this morning, runners and walkers. I followed two girls through the switchbacks until eventually passing them. As I came out of the golf course I met up with the Boilermaker training group. It was like being in a race, there were so many of them.
I had some left foot pain when I started out today. The outside edge of my foot. Then it went away and during the last 1/2 mile, was back again. As I pulled into the driveway the bottom of my foot began hurting. I’ll see how it feels as the day progresses. Not sure I need to tell the trainer at this point.
Average pace during the second half of my run, 9.34.
My niece has her baby shower today. We know it’s a boy and his name is Dylan. Stefanie is due on August 10th. Her theme is Winnie The Pooh. Could ya tell?!
I finished decorating this cake last night which of course was Friday Happy Hour at our house. Ted was playing golf so, as much as I hate to admit it, I drank ALONE….
This was a wonderful Chardonnay and it really helped me decorate the cake. In case you’re wondering, the wine was not the reason for the bee flying in a hap-hazard pattern.
Stef wanted a chocolate cannoli cake. It’s a chocolate cake with cannoli filling. A butter cream frosting tops the cake.
My sister decided on the wording. So cute!
Congratulations Stef and Dane, Dylan is on his way.
Like cake? More tomorrow for Josh’s graduation. Sorry Bonnie, no chocolate overload this time, only cake.
What’s your all time favorite cake, filling and frosting? or….do you prefer pies?
