runDisney’s Princess Half Marthon Weekend Costume Reveal

This weekend I will be running in my first ever Princess Weekend! I will be running three races in three days: a 5k, a 10k, and a half marathon. At the end of the weekend I will be tired, but I will be in possession of 4 shiny, new medals! (The only one I won’t get is the one of the far left because that is for the kid’s race.)

Dopey Challenge 2014

Dopey Challenge 2014 Well, Disney World’s Marathon Weekend is coming up this  week, so I thought I would do a look back at my experience from 2014 from running the Dopey Challenge. Four days of running a total of 48.6 miles totally kicked my butt, but I had an awesome experience and am a little sad not to be participating this year. I love seeing everyone’s costume choices and really hope everyone has a great time!! I plan on registering for 2017…need to save my pennies! The Expo…

A look back at the 2014 Jingle Jungle 5k / Wine & Dine Half Marathon

This weekend is the next runDisney race weekend, bringing the Jingle Jungle 5k on Saturday morning and the Wine & Dine Half Marathon Saturday evening.

Here are some highlights to get you excited: Jingle Jungle 5k…

2015 Expedition Everest Challenge

This year was the last Expedition Everest Challenge ever 🙁  My first runDisney race ever was the 2013 Everest Challenge, so this race holds a special place in my heart.

Fitness Snapshots | Fitness Firsts

Today’s topic for the Friday Five link-up with Courtney, Cynthia and Mar is Fitness Snapshots. There are a lot of ways to interpret this theme (just look at all the other links – everyone has a different idea!), and I decided to go with “Fitness Firsts”. My first race I started running during the summer of 2012. I was in Connecticut for a few weeks taking some grad school classes. My friend Holly wanted to run a 5k and asked if I would go with her. Ha! I’m so lazy…but…
