Life has been busier than ever over the last few months. That helps to explain why this post is delayed by a little over 3 months or so. Better late than never though, right? One of my most successful posts to date discussed how I made my Anna from Frozen race costume. I appreciate all of … Continue reading Disneyland Half Marathon Costume & Race Recap (A Few Months Delayed)
Well...I have been a very bad blogger! I know, there is no excuse for going to long without an update. I haven't forgotten about all of you (I swear!) but it's just been a whirl wind since we got back from DC. I've also been battling the sickness that started on the first day of … Continue reading Back to the Grind
I was excited to wake up this morning to find this comment on my recent post: REALLY?! Me?! Caroline at I ❤ Running was kind enough to include me as one of her 2013 Top Ten Best Dressed Walt Disney World Runners. I am so honored! I am certainly in good company with some other … Continue reading Running in Costume
Where to begin? I am still having serious runDisney withdrawal after this weekend! Although it wasn't to be a PR weekend, it was still very magical.

Let me recount the last few days... Pre-Princess Training My final days of Princess Half training are … Continue reading A Quick Update – My SUPER Fatigued Week
Happy (Belated) Valentine's Day Everyone! I hope you had a lovely day with your loved ones yesterday. A mid-week Valentine's day is always bummer since it's tough to plan a festive evening but my valentines did a good job this year. Since we both worked a full day, we agreed that spending a nice evening … Continue reading Happy (Belated) Valentine’s Day Everyone!
At long last...welcome to my recap of the 2013 Tinker Bell Half Marathon! My Pre-Race Thoughts I'm sure this has been pretty well documented in prior blog posts but I was not quite sure what to expect from this race. While I always want to PR going into any race, I had such a great … Continue reading PART 2 – 2013 Tinker Bell Half Marathon – Race Recap
At long last - three weeks later - I am sitting down to write my full recap of the incredible 2013 Tinker Bell Half Marathon.

It feels good to see this much green filling up my Nike+ week: My sole mission for today was to get my treadmill speed workout done. That means I barely did anything else (you know, all those mental negotiations insuring my arrival at the gym took too much energy to do much else). My original … Continue reading Staying Strong on Day Six!
