That Princess Bling Tho…

My top recommendation to any runDisney runner? Or any runner? WEAR THAT BLING. Nothing beats congratulations after congratulations in the parks after the race. When else do you have the opportunity to wear your race medals? (Psst, did you know you can click the pictures to see them big?) The week after the Princess Half… Continue reading That Princess Bling Tho…

Princess Half Marathon 2016 – Race Recap

This is overdue, but I’ve had a hard time writing this despite the fact that I’ve talked to many friends about my experience. You see, the problem may lie in writing the recap in chronological order. Then again, a highs and lows like my previous Disneyland Half recaps may not have worked either. So, keep… Continue reading Princess Half Marathon 2016 – Race Recap

Learning Speed [800s and Speedwork Workouts]

First a quick recap, my 5-miler on Saturday turned into a 4-miler and a 1-miler (four before the gym and one after on the treadmill) on Sunday. I planned poorly with running on Saturday evening after my beach gym session. At least I got an awesome sunset out of it. 🙂 I couldn’t get the sand… Continue reading Learning Speed [800s and Speedwork Workouts]

Lessons in Running [Socks Matter]

Can you guess where this post is going? Yup, BLISTERS. So, it’s a new revelation out of nowhere that socks matter. No, no. That’d be much too easy. No, it’s the revelation of a girl that did exactly what she shouldn’t have done. She ran without socks. So, you see, the “official” start of Princess… Continue reading Lessons in Running [Socks Matter]

Surfing Madonna 10K – Race Report

Last Saturday, I ran the Surfing Madonna 10k. It’s the largest beach run in the country and by beach run I do mean BEACH run. As in, in the sand. Wait no, let’s start at the beginning. Okay, not the very beginning. That’s already covered here. I ran the Surfing Madonna 10k for my proof of time race… Continue reading Surfing Madonna 10K – Race Report

“I like time. There’s so little and so much of it.” [Pay Attention]

Have I ever told you that I’m a huge Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel fan? (Well, let’s not be limiting, I will watch just about anything Joss Whedon is involved in.) Some of you are probably well aware if you know me in real life. Haha. I think of the subject line quote (from one… Continue reading “I like time. There’s so little and so much of it.” [Pay Attention]
