I love running. It keeps me sane and provides all sorts of benefits, but it is the first thing to go when I have to take something off my list in order to get life done. Unless I have a plan.
So there are lots of reasons why I run and maybe you run for these reasons, too. I like to eat what I want. I like for my clothes to fit. I like a challenge. It let me spend time with my family and friends. It lets me go to Walt Disney World and Disneyland.... Continue Reading →
Ironically, at a marathon expo I saw a shirt that says, "Someday I'll run a marathon. Today is not that day." I had always thought of "Today is not that day" in basically the opposite way: "Someday I won't be able to run. Today is not that day." Or something similar. And yesterday, that mantra kept...

In my quest to visit every Disney Park in the world, I made it to Disneyland® Paris! You want to hear all about it? Oui, oui! Well, head over to The Adult Side of Disney and read all about it - it was magnifique! http://theadultsideofdisney.com/better-place-dream-disneyland-paris-shannon-dill/
So, I'm feeling a little nostalgic. My friend, who was "Sherpa" on the venture I share below is about to do a century bike ride (that's 100 miles, if you didn't know) in Moab, Utah (aka: the middle of nowhere). I wish I could be there to return the Sherpa favor, but since I can't... Continue Reading →
After running in The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror™ 10-Miler since its inauguration, I can tell you that things get spookier each year. And by spookier, I mean better! There are more characters on the course, there is more lighting on the course (though I'm not sure that some of the pyrotechnics count as lighting),... Continue Reading →
Just like any Disney vacation, half the fun of a runDisney event is the prep-work. And I'm not just talking about logging miles! One of the bonuses of planning for a runDisney event is that you can involve your friends and family who will be chEARing you on from home. Who doesn't want to share... Continue Reading →
In honor of everyone making resolutions to get out and run more…this one is an oldie but a goodie. Keep running!
So, it is a cold & rainy morning and I’m going to pick up the race bags for the whole family for this Saturday’s 5K. You see, Don registers us all for a 5k every month. It is fun for the whole family. The only problem is that I have not been very motivated since last month’s 5k to do much running. Oh, I got my excuses: It is cold/raining/ozone depleted outside today. I’m swamped with work/home/life/mindless blogging at the moment. My hips/feet/head/tonsils (so what if they were removed when I was in 2nd grade – ever heard of phantom pain??) hurt.
And, to make matters worse, after the last 5k I was heckled by my running clan that I was a slow runner – despite the fact that I did beat a 5 year old boy who was trying to outrun me at the last minute to the cheers of the onlookers (the little turd
