Victory Cake
























I did it! My first HALF-MARATHON.

























Distance: 13.1 mi.
Time: 2h. 7min. 30sec.


















Time to CELEBRATE!


















The lemon VICTORY CAKE.

























The makers of little poke marks in the FROSTING.


















Ready for #2.


My sweet friend Rosie snapped some pics at the race that will be coming soon...

Oh, and you can find the cake recipe on my friend Lori's blog, here. Let's just say this is the third one we've made.

You are AWESOME!

Maybe if one of us isn't pregnant, we can do one together (yeah, right... has one of us not been pregnant at some point in the last six years???).

Sounds like you had a blast :)

Lori said...

I'm so proud of you! That cake is well deserved. :)

Way to go, Bethany!!! I can't believe you did the half marathon with Craig away--I can only imagine what it was like to get them ready to go somewhere while trying to prepare yourself for the big race! Thinking of you and praying for you. When does your husband return? Sounds like your mom is there too! :) LE
