I know the end is coming soon.

Alicia and I at a special event with this guy.

It is difficult to keep up with all of the Cleveland "cupcake" blogs. A lot of them are about dining in restaurants I can't afford and bars I don't want to go to.

One of my hands-down favorites, however, is Poise in Parma, which is not only about running, but also Cleveland special events and great cooking.

Editor Alicia Hansen (no relation) and I worked together when she was Special Events Coordinator at Great Lakes Theater and she single handedly raised $19 million to re-imagine the Hanna Theatre. (Heather and Bob won't mind I said that, will they, Alicia? No, I didn't think so.)
"And remember: running even just one mile is better than running none. Get your running streak on, my friend." - Alicia
Thank you, Alicia. I was going to bag on day two, what with the snow and all. Then I read this comment you left on yesterday's post and put my shoes on.

1) mmmm cupcakes...
2) Yes, singlehandedly. That place was a mess before I got there :)
3) You are incredibly welcome. You got me running in the first place, so the least I can do is to keep you running.

Many thanks for the shout out. Stay safe on those snowy streets!

The dude at CLE+SUCKS uses the term "Cupcakes and Cheerleaders" to describe Cleveland boosters, so I have decided to claim the title as a badge of honor because, well, you know. Cupcakes!

Yeah, he unfortunately has one of my good blog friends on his cupcake list. Personally, I rather be a cupcake than a snarker, so I'm with ya on the badge of honor!
