Here We Go Again…

Turns out one race for charity wasn’t enough, so I’m back for Magical Miles Part Deux: Two Hoots, Three Races! Yup, I’ve signed up for the Disney Princess Half Weekend Glass Slipper Challenge AND Princess 5K, and I’ve roped Mama Hootman, who has never run a race in her life, into doing BOTH the Princess […]

Why I “runDisney”

Official Training Commences!

As of yesterday, the Official Walt Disney World Marathon Training Program has commenced. My “real” training has begun! This training program consists of two forty-five minute runs and one “long” run a week. For simplicity’s sake, I will be now recording my runs in miles instead of kilometers, as the long run goals set out […]

Lazy Blogging, Late Stats, Paula Deen, Grisly Disney, Civil Rights, Food Overload & Mizuno’s

I have been such a shite blogger over the last several weeks. I’m sorry. Things started out so well. Let’s start over together: Hi, I’m Amanda. This one time I went for a run and a bird shit on me. Okay, so what’s the craic? What’s been happening? I worked Taste of London last week […]

Want to see something gross?

You can see every blood vessel in my transparent legs! Gahh!!! 😛   So, today’s run was pitiful. I was feeling some “Lady Pains” and running was exacerbating it. Ran half of a small run and ended up turning around pretty much walking the whole way home. Yikes. I shall pick up some pain relievers […]

I have been training for a month! Well, what have we learned in one month? I listen almost exclusively to musicals on my runs (and, let’s be honest, in life). I really actually enjoy running! It’s my me-time. I can let my mind run free! It’s like I’m Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella, except instead of […]

WDW Marathon Weekend Starts 8 Months Today!

All of us runners will be swarming into Walt Disney World in just a few short months! I wonder what I’ll be like in 8 months’ time after 8 1/2 months’ marathon training? Flooded with endorphins, I’d expect! I forgot to blog yesterday! Make-A-Wish sent me a runner’s vest! Got some cool schwag for my […]
