TotR: My Year in Pictures

Welcome to Tuesdays on the Run.  As the year is winding down, Patty from My No-Guilt Life, Erika from MCM Mama Runs and I thought that it would be fun to do a post highlighting the past year, just in pictures.  So, here’s my 2014 (I’ll confess now, I couldn’t stick to just pictures…as the months get further along I wrote even more!): January was the Tinkerbell 10k  and Tinkerbell Half Marathon!  And my first … Continue reading

Candlelight Processional at Epcot

One of the most beautiful renditions of the Christmas story I’ve ever heard was the Candlelight Processional at Epcot. A celebrity narrator tells the Christmas story, interspersed with Christmas music performed by a 50-piece orchestra and mass choir.  The choir (at least 300 members based on my rough count)  is composed of a cast choir of Disney Cast Members (this year they were on the central risers that look like a Christmas tree) and a … Continue reading

Saturday Update: From the Couch

Last Saturday I was at Disney, had a head cold and was determined to get better quickly.  Let’s see how I did on my goals: Goals for last week: Walk a whole lot today (we’re doing Animal Kingdom in the morning and Hollywood Studios at night so that shouldn’t be a problem).  —  Yes!  I walked over 5 miles Friday and over 9 miles on Saturday. Get over this nasty head cold!  —  No!  No!  … Continue reading

Injury Prevention: Massage

It’s a free day here at Tuesdays on the Run with Patty from My No-Guilt Life and Erika from MCM Mama Runs.  While any running topic is always welcome, this is one of those weeks where we’re letting all our fellow bloggers just pick their own topic! Because I’m super injury prone, I do lots of things to reduce my injury risk, including getting deep tissue massage every other week.   I’ve already posted about other … Continue reading

Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party

We don’t get to go to the special holiday events at the Magic Kingdom very often, but we always enjoy them!  Eli and I went as a surprise mommy and kiddo trip last weekend.  This was my second time attending Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party and I loved it. Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is a special event (called a hard ticket event because it requires a separate ticket purchase) that happens at the Magic … Continue reading

Saturday Update: Sick at Disney

No, this doesn’t actually say “sick of Disney” although some of my non-Disney-appreciating friends are probably thinking that.  No, we’re all at Disney for one last visit of 2014 and we’re all sick!  Last Sunday, Eli and I drove down for a two-day mommy & Eli visit that got cut short because he got sick Sunday night.  He’s mostly better now (just a stuffy nose, but has high energy and is feeling fine) but Erik … Continue reading

Five Favorite Winter Activities – Florida Edition

Another Friday, another Friday Five linkup with Cynthia at You Signed Up for What , Mar at Mar on the Run and Courtney at Eat Pray Run DC.  Today’s topic is Five Favorite Winter Activities.  I’m sure many of the linked posts are going to include running pictures all bundled up with ice on their eyelashes (crazy!) and snow-skiing and ice skating.  Well, I live in Florida, so my favorite winter activities are a little … Continue reading

Well Things Just Got Real

Bib numbers and corrals are out for the runDisney Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend.  I know lots of my friends are running #alltheraces that weekend, but I’m sticking to just the 10k.  Back when I signed up months and months ago, I was super into speedwork and was doing well on weight loss.  So I picked the 10k with a huge speed goal of finishing in the top 10% of my age group. Then the … Continue reading
