Back in the USA, Back on Track

Well, my contract aboard the Seabourn Sojourn is finished, and I’m officially land-based (making training much easier). Beyond just preparing for the Princess Half Marathon Weekend at Disney, Mom and I have other, even more important goals: Getting physically (and, as planning gets more intense, emotionally) fit for my wedding in June! So, we traipsed […]

PRing on a Disney Race?

Right readers: Question Time. Has anyone PRed on a Disney race or run a Disney Race for time, and if so, was it worth it?
