Don't spit on my cupcake and tell me it's frosting *

I finished the Cupcake Marathon (in my case HALF marathon) last week. I forgot to send a photo of myself with my "bib" so I decided to post it on here. I am terrible when it comes to taking pics of myself; even worse when I attempt it with my phone, as you can tell from the pic. I never remember to take a picture post-run, so you get this instead. A very tired, post-allergic reaction (keep reading) shot.

What allergic reaction? Well, I was diagnosed with chronic ear infections (yes, both ears) this morning and have an appointment next week with an ENT/otolaryngologist (say that fast three times; I can't even say it slowly once). In the meantime, I was prescribed amoxicillin. About five minutes after I take it, my nose, eyeballs, throat and inner ears start itching like CRAZY, and it lasts about 20-30 minutes. I started to suspect an allergy to amoxicillin when I took it at the end of last year for an ear infection (of course). Then I really had to wonder when my Bean was on liquid amoxicillin last month, and I licked a little off my finger and had the same reaction. When I wanted to scratch my eyeballs out after my first dose today, I am pretty sure it is an allergic reaction. Fun, huh?

What IS fun is the movie I'll be watching Thursday night. If you don't know what I'm talking about, you better take a break from running and read a few more blogs, because it seems like everyone in the running blogosphere is talking about My Run. I'm going to see it with two fellow running bloggers, Alicia and Farrah, and will be sure to fill you in on the details of our girls night out. And I'll let you know how the movie was too. * Quote from The Simpsons, Episode: The Parent Rap (2001)


  1. Ha...I totally misread the bib thing for the cupcake marathon. I just took a picture of the bib...oops.

  2. ah! i'm going to see the movie on thursday too!

  3. Can't wait for the movie! Facebook me and let me know what time you want me to meet you there.

  4. If you haven't already, you might want to call your doc and see about getting a different antibiotic. Sometimes those reactions can be serious. Your movie night sounds like fun!

  7. what's this movie!?! I haven't heard a thing about it. I think I'm a runner. And I think i'm a blogger. Gahhh, have I gotten myself all wrong???

  8. That allergic reaction sounds awful. I hope you can get the ear infections figured out without having to take amoxicillin!

    I love the pink cupcakes!
