A few weeks ago I raced Orangeman, an iron-distance triathlon, meaning 1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike, and 13.1 run. I've done several of these races before, but this was the first time I crashed. What?! Yes I crashed on my bike for the first time ever! It was a stupid accident where caution tape got tangled in my bike handlebars and at 18 mph I went down hard on asphalt. Luckily I was only 3 miles from the end of the bike course, so after I got attended to by the paramedics, I rode my bike back and finished the race by running 13.1 miles.
I would say that deserves some cupcakes, right?
It wasn't hard to convince my friend Jill to join me for a trip to Sweet and Saucy Shop in Newport Beach, CA. Between the two of us, we ordered one of everything. Yeah, we are that serious about cupcake eating.
I've been to Sweet and Saucy Shop before, but I tried a few new items this time: S'mores cupcake, mini pumpkin cheesecake, lemon cupcake, pumpkin mousse dessert shot, and butterscotch dessert shot. Loved everything...enough said!
Desmond might have tasted his first taste of whipped cream. Shhhh! Don't tell my husband!
