Guess whose second birthday it is???

Everyone will of course remember her from this the first Discussion Board thread to have over 16,000 views: http://fastrunningblog.com/forum/index.php/topic,725.0.html


I ran the regular route this morning.  Nothing special.  No funny stories.  Lots of walkers.

Time: 23:25 (avg. pace 7:55)

Splits: 8:03, 8:02, 7:20 (7:40)

I don't have a digital scale.  I think I might have been a hair under 200 this morning, but I'll mark it as 200 even.  Have a good day.

Weight: 200.00

She is adorable!!! Did she ran 2 miles for her 2nd birthday? :) That cake looks very yummy too - or were they cupcakes stuck together? Mmmmmm...

From Burt on Wed, Feb 04, 2009 at 11:24:56

Yep. Cupcakes stuck together in the shape of a princess crown or tiara or whatever it's called.

From Burt on Wed, Feb 04, 2009 at 11:48:12

Apparently that link doesn't work. :(

From Eric Day on Wed, Feb 04, 2009 at 12:14:37

Very cute Burt, hope she (and of course you) has a great day...

From Kelli on Wed, Feb 04, 2009 at 13:34:03

I love the cake, lucky little princess!!! I wish the link would work, tell me how to find it (which month, day, year, etc).

Great job on the weight!!

From Burt on Wed, Feb 04, 2009 at 14:01:53

It's under News and Announcements in the Discussion Forum. I just made another comment on it, so it should be close to the top.

From Smooth on Wed, Feb 04, 2009 at 16:19:10

Happy Birthday to sweet Emily!!!! Thanks for sharing the pictures (both here and in the Discussion Forum). She is adorable, what an angel princess! Hope you and your family have a great day.

From Michelle N. on Wed, Feb 04, 2009 at 16:34:20

I remember looking at that discussion awhile back. She is sooo cute! Happy Birthday to Emily! Oh, and good running!

From James W on Wed, Feb 04, 2009 at 16:40:39

Burt, you need to change the address the link it is going to to match the name of the link. It is pointing to http://burt-mccumber.fastrunningblog.com/blog--Guess-whose-second-birthday-it-is-/forum/index.php/topic,725.0.html

That's why it isn't working. Change the address on the link to point to the same as the title, and it will work (I double-checked). BTW, cute pictures!

From Kelli on Wed, Feb 04, 2009 at 18:29:32

I see nothing under News and Announcements that is new????

From Burt on Wed, Feb 04, 2009 at 18:50:57

Sorry Kelli. Look for the one that's entitled Down With Anytime 5. ;)

From Kelli on Wed, Feb 04, 2009 at 19:20:43

Oh my heck, call me dumb! I thought I was looking for a post BY you, not Sasha. Those pictures are absolutely priceless!!! I have never been able to get any of my kids to behave so well and be so cute during pictures, you lucky duck! You want to remember those adorable moments, and she made it easy for you guys!

She is a DOLL.
