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

If you are a runDisney freak like me and are running one of the races during Marathon Weekend, you undoubtedly have checked out http://www.rundisney.com/disneyworld-marathon/ and found your bib number and corral placement. Upon seeing your corral placement for said race, you may have scratched your head and pondered. Or perhaps you are the type who didn't ponder... Continue Reading →
