For my final week of fundraising for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, I made a double layer chocolate cake. The recipe was from the Joy of Vegan Baking and it was really simple, but not as good as the basic chocolate cupcake recipe from Vegan Cupcakes take over the world. It wasn’t very sweet, which allowed for lots of frosting. I used the cake decorating kit we got from my sister & brother-in-law for our wedding. I need to find a class on cake decorating.
Unfortunately, the marathon did not go well. The heat was unbearable and I was over the race by mile 17. I suffered through the last 9 miles and barely beat last year’s stress fracture time. I will say that it was a lot of fun to run with Team in Training. There were lots of “Go Team” screaming spectators cheering us on.
