The Cake Runners Athletics Club :-)
Happy New to you and welcome to the 2012 thread of the Cake Runners Athletics Club (CRAC)
As the title suggests we are here for anyone who just wants to go a 'little bit further'. So whether you're aiming for your first 5k or marathon or Ultra, please feel free to come and join us.
The CRAC team (virtual world and only on this thread) started last year because we realised that along with running we seem to have an equal passion for cakes. So come and introduce yourself, name your favourite cake and you are in as team member.
Our club team colours are the Battenburg. To cheer us on at races we have a virtual cheerleading squad led by Loula. Hopefully DJ will be back this year with a daily tune. And I'm sure all the regulars will be squeezing their way on to the sofa in CRAC towers and introducing themselves.
On this thread you will get lots of laughs, support, encouragement, cake and hopefully a bit of running knowledge
So please come on in, grab a piece of cake from the tea trolley, make yourself known and join us in running 'Just A Little Bit Further' in 2012!
Mmmm I love Carrot cake.
My favourite is parsnip and maple syrup and I make one each year for my birthday.... yum, yum, yum...
Do you have any aims for 2012? They should probably be running targets, but since we are a very friendly bunch here, we'll happily cheer you on for whatever!
I am with you Limper. I just love Chocolate Cake.
I reckon that you can do anything you put your mind to.Running has got me through some really tough times with the added help of Cake. You can do it Limper.
There's a cake we make every year that has forever been referred to as 'The German Cake' - due to a German friend of ours introducing us to it: it's a sponge cake with ground almonds, white icing and hundreds and thousands. So my favourite cake is 'The German Cake'. Love Mini Cadbury Rolls though - as some of you might have figured out.
Happy New Year to everyone at CRAC Towers!
Running aims for 2012? Break the ten mile barrier and do at least one 5k park run.

Love all cake - lemon drizzle a current favourite
want to do a marathon this year, have entered Sussex April 1st, but currently wondering whether I will make it as have a dodgy ankle at the mo, first run in 3 weeks today - did 2 miles
Ouchie I had far too much Vino last night so Today is the start of me being good.
Foot still playing up which is annoying so more icing tonight. I have been self diagnosing again but should really go Docs.
Hi Mathschick I hope your Ankle improves soon.I seem to have lots of that kind of trouble and I find it so frustrating. I want to do a Marathon later in the year and an Ultra.I just hope my foot improves.
By Eck I hope your Blister goes soon.I find them soooooo painful.
Morning Phantom have a good time at Club.
A.F Mahoosive Good Luck for today. You can have any cake you want Boss *hopes that cake will distract Da Boss from knowing what the Norty Crew got up to last night*
