Happy Halloween ,Treat and Enjoy

Need a cool and creepy treat to wrap up your Halloween party menu? Here's one that features a special famous guest mummified in sweet marshmallow strips.

You'll need:

  • Batch of baked cupcakes
  • Wax paper
  • Confectioner's sugar
  • Rolling pin
  • Marshmallows
  • Kitchen scissors
  • White frosting
  • Chocolate nonpareil candies
  • Chocolate-covered raisins

1. Working atop wax paper dusted with confectioners sugar, use a rolling pin to flatten a bunch of marshmallows.

Step 1

2. Use kitchen scissors to cut the rolled marshmallows into thin strips. Set the strips aside for now.

Step 2

3. Frost the cupcakes. Press a pair of nonpareil candies (white side down) into the frosting at the top of each cupcake to resemble Mickey ears. Then add a pair of chocolate-covered raisin eyes.

Step 3

4. Randomly place marshmallow strips over each cupcake, leaving the eyes exposed, to resemble a mummy. Gently press the strips into the icing just enough to make them stick in place. When the cupcakes are sufficiently covered, use the kitchen scissors to trim the marshmallow around the perimeters, as needed.

Step 4

To transfer your race registration between Marathon Weekend races, please complete the following steps:

1. REGISTER ONLINE at disneyworldmarathon.com for the race you want to transfer your entry to in 2011 (you will need to pay registration fees for the race that you will transfer your race entry to for 2011).

If you request a registration transfer to a race with registration fees less than your original race registration fees, the difference between the race registration fees will not be refunded.

Please allow two weeks from when you submit your transfer request for your refund to process and post to your account. If, after two weeks, your refund has not posted, please contact us.

Tag Your Buddy.

Not sure if this happens to you guys but following past events I always seem to fall into a rut. It’s like my brain says “you got that one under your belt so go ahead kick back for awhile, you deserve it.”

It seems like once I achieve a goal my focus tends to drift away from the next challenge and folks I can’t let that happen and neither should you. January is coming on like the Roger E. Broggie; in fact if you look closely you might already see the steam coming down the tracks.

To the point of this post:

I want to encourage each of you to get out there and put in the miles and cardio work needed to cross the next finish line. This year a number of you are going Dopey for Goofy (or is it the other way round) and my boy howdy is my hat off to you. Consider your Wine and Dine experience and in the next couple months make any adjustments needed to finish strong. I have every confidence that you’ll reach your goals but everything you put in between now and then will greatly help your own confidence.

Be sure that your touching base with your Team Voice buddy and if you or your buddy have been slacking… then shame shame shame. Remember Deb’s favorite song. “We’re all in this together.”

Motivating your buddy only takes a few moments and you can keep it quite simple. Mike and I simply send a text to each other when we have done some miles stating what we did and tag it’s your turn. Generally we try to tag the other back within 24 hours with matching or plus mileage. Occasionally we share a few added words of encouragement but mostly we keep it simple. At least for us it works.

Last night (10/11) I got in 4.5 miles. Consider each of yourselves tagged.

Be Prepared, Kid

Be Prepared, Kid

Now that you've decided to lose weight, make like a Boy Scout and think of yourself as being on a mission. The key to success is to have a game plan for every situation that might throw you off course. This stuff isn't brain surgery — it's common sense. If you take the time to think ahead, you can come up with ways to overcome every obstacle. Here are a couple of surefire strategies:

* Go through your kitchen and throw out all the junk food and processed garbage immediately. (You can't eat it if it's not there!) Don't buy these foods anymore — just eliminate them from your kitchen entirely. If your spouse or the kids start whining, you can tell them I said they're better off not eating that stuff either. Reacquaint yourself with your local supermarket. Shop in the healthy sections and stock up on as many organic fruits and veggies as you can afford — and steer clear of the aisles that contain your trigger foods.
* If food that's available in the workplace is your downfall, steer clear of it entirely. Take different routes to avoid the vending machines and the frighteningly fattening foods in the cafeteria. Bring healthy snacks and meals from home to stash in your desk. Do whatever you can to stay away from anything that might throw you off course and hamper your success.
