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? Basically, I’m set to walk the Princess 5K and Enchanted 10K with my mom, so there will be ample photo and character opportunities on those races. Thus, I’m considering running […]

Why I “runDisney”

Let’s Talk About… Your Face

So, as we approach the halfway mark in our Walt Disney World Marathon training (eek!) it’s really time to start thinking about aesthetics, because, let’s *face* it (get it?) there are going to be a lot of cameras and very little Photoshop and Ridiculously Photogenic Guy has gone and set a precedent for all race […]

Energy Gels/Beans/Chews Review Episode 2: Clif Shot Bloks in Tropical Punch Flavor + Caffeine

For the second episode of my energy supplement reviews series, I took a 15 mile run with Clif Shot Bloks in Tropical Punch Flavor + Caffeine! I didn’t get very much sleep last night and I left my run a little too late in the morning after my meagre bagel and cream cheese breakfast, so […]

I hate Galloway’s Run-Walk-Run Method, any comments?

So, since I started the official Run Disney training program on July 2nd, I have been trying to do the run-walk-run method that is at the core of Jeff Galloway’s training system. Interval training has been proven to prevent injury and actually increase a runner’s pace. However, I am not enjoying it. I’ve tried different […]

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 […]

I forgot to record a run again!

I went running yesterday. I took lots of walking “breaks” because I was feeling a little on the tight side to begin with and didn’t want to push it, and because I thought it would be good to get used to some walking. They weren’t regular, timed intervals. Didn’t seem to slow me down too […]

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 […]
