Why I “runDisney”

Disney Quote of the Day is back!

I’m gonna start regularly doing Disney quotes posts again, except now they’ll be a Monday feature! What better to motivate you through your week than some Disney inspiration? I honestly do not know! “Trials and tribulations, I’ve had my share. There ain’t nothin’ gonna stop me now ’cause I’m almost there!” – Tiana, The Princess […]

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 […]

For simplicity’s sake, I will be now recording my runs in miles instead of kilometers, as the long run goals set out […]

Fun-Run Costume Designs!

So, I have been saying that my WDW Marathon will be a “fun run” in some form of a costume since I’m doing it for children’s charities. My mom sews, so rather than just buying some wings and a tutu like most people, we decided to design and make a Disney character costume for race […]

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 […]

When You Wish Upon A Star Charity Run, The Blog Is 1 Month Old Today!

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 […]
