On the first day of our racecation, we mostly just traveled. But check out how it all went down and for some handy tips if you haven’t traveled for a race or to Disney World before. 🙂
I’d love to say I have a good excuse for neglecting this blog again, but busy is a poor excuse. Don’t you agree? We all have time for the things that are priorities in our life and it’s quite clear this blog hasn’t been a priority. I would like it to be more of a… Continue reading Childhood Cancer Awareness Month 2017
Remember when I said I’d get back to what I did after the 10K? I always keep my promises. But, before we get there… we have to start here. Last November, I ran the Infinity Gauntlet Challenge with Kellsie’s Krew. I enjoyed my experience and was so impressed with everything Kellsie’s Hope Foundation does that I signed… Continue reading Running with Kellsie’s Krew [and What Happens Between Races]
I’ll come back to what I did Saturday after the 10K, I promise. But, I thought I’d wrap up the races first. Warning… this is long. This recap begins with my #flatme from the night before the race. I ALWAYS lay out my clothes, shoes, accessories, gels, etc… the night before (and usually I photograph them too).… Continue reading Wrapping Up the PDC [Tink Half 2017 Recap]
And we’re off to Saturday morning and the Tink 10K! The alarm went off SUPER early (4 AM) and I was *so* glad that I was doing the race with my friend because it turned out the outlet I plugged my phone into was connected to the light switch. I turned out the light and… Continue reading Pixie Dust Challenge Begins! [Tink 10K Recap]
Even if you aren’t big into Broadway, you probably recognize that title. Perhaps you even sang it to yourself? 525,600 minutes. 525,000 moments so dear. So, how do you measure a year? For 2016, I seem to be measuring the year in race miles: 13.1. 19.3. 13.1. 19.3. Did I tell you I was doing… Continue reading How Do You Measure A Year?
The post-race blues are real. You spend weeks, sometimes even months, planning, preparing, and anticipating that race weekend. Then, in an instant, it’s over. The blues creep in and you lose the motivation to do, well, anything. Maybe you’re even thinking to yourself, “but I’m not even a runner! I didn’t even run before this! This was… Continue reading Look Forward: 3 Easy Ways to Ditch the Post-Race Blues
At 3:50 AM on Saturday morning, the first alarm went off. The second alarm went off at 4 AM and it was time to actually get up for the 10K. Despite trying on a bunch of different outfits on Friday night (and debating a million tops at the Expo Friday day), Jen and I both… Continue reading Tinker Bell 10K 2016 – Race Recap
Maybe it’s the number of times I saw The Sound of Music as a child, but I’m a firm believer in starting at the very beginning. It’s a very good place to start. This story begins on Thursday at the Expo. After a last minute decision to take Thursday off work, I subbed BodyFlow on Thursday morning… Continue reading Tinker Bell Half Marathon [Expo] 2016- Before the Race
I did it! I’ll be back later this week with the details, but for now I am just going to bask in this weekend.
