As faithful and true runDisney runners, we are always ready and waiting for the next registration date and searching for our next costumes. On registration day, it is always a nervous, messy day because its first come, first serve. And there are obvious popular races that sell out within minutes and MANY runners are left in the dark. But there are still ways into the race through … Continue reading runDisney updates

Well, how do I begin this recap…where do I begin this recap??? I had a seizure 4 days before I was set to run a half marathon. My favorite half marathon because it’s Star Wars. Although this seizure wasn’t world shattering, it did rock my world. I didn’t completely recover from it. But I was going to run this race regardless because I felt strong … Continue reading I was a TROOPER.

WOW! To say that this weekend was memorable, it’s an understatement. From the Cigna blogger event, where we learned about nutrition and exercise in a fun way where we stacked cups, apples, did (fake) shot, played beer pong without the beer, oh yeah…we sang too.

We all know that the marathon is not an easy feat to conquer. It’s 26.2 miles or 42.165 kilometers. That’s a lot of steps! Now I think it’s the training that makes the marathon the toughest part. Because it’s months and months of running and having good and bad runs. Figuring out what’s the best midrun fuel. Working through a little thing called life….it’s gets … Continue reading #wdwmarathon25
Another year is going, going gone. And I am not sad to see it go. 2017 gave me a shitload of challenges. And yes, they are continuing and probably the only thing I will carry on into the new year. Unfortunately my declining health is the ongoing problem I will always carry onto the new year for the rest of my life but each year … Continue reading Thanks for the lessons 2017

But with the Walt Disney World Marathon almost a week away, I am also prepping for my traditional stay. By that I mean, turning my race weekend, into a fun … Continue reading RUNcation!
