Disneyland Snacks: Our Quest for the Best!

Disneyland Snacks: Our Quest for the Best!

Before leaving for the Disneyland Half Marathon in September, I did some research about the best Disneyland Snacks according to vloggers like I’m Sarah Snitch, (my favorite Disney vlogger – her videos are awesome,) and blogs such as the Disney Food Blog. From them, I assembled quite the list of goodies the four of us must try!

Did we get to them all? No, but my-oh-my, we sure had a blast trying! And now we have yet another reason to go back next year, to try ones we missed. Until then, here’s our thoughts on Disneyland Snacks and our favorites! [click to continue…]

Accountability Quest: Our Wine & Dine Goals

Got goals? Oh yeah, Megan and I have some goals. We chatted about this in her Accountability Quest post by listing what we want to accomplish before the Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon. Since we both set unrealistic goals, however, (and perfection is impossible,) we have a rule where finishing 50% would be considered a total win!

So how am I doing? Well, seeing as how today’s topic for the Tuesday on the Run Blog Link Up hosted by My No-Guilt Life, Marcia’s Healthy Slice, and MCM Mama Runs is What are your remaining goals for 2016, I thought it’d be a good time to check in with an update! [click to continue…]


The Quest for the Perfect Sports Bra

The Quest for the Perfect Sports Bra

When I first thought about this topic, I wanted to add ‘the struggle is real’. It’s seriously hard to find what I would call the perfect sports bra. Over the years, I, like many of you, have tried several different brands.  As my activities changed, so did my opinion of what constitutes the perfect sports bra. I am pretty confident that I’ve found the holy grail at least for me. [click to continue…]


Monster Scramble 5k/10k for MS

Monster Scramble 5k and 10k

My cousin Shannon and I heard about a local race in Buffalo called the Monster Scramble 5K/10k for MS. A Sunday where I don’t work and there’s no 1:00 football game is rare so I asked her if she’d like to do the 10k.

We debated all week and even agreed we’d pay the extra 5.00 to register race day in case we backed out.(weather very iffy this time of year) My cousin called the race director and confirmed we would get a medal and t-shirt even if we registered that day, there was no pace requirement, and were encouraged to wear a costume so we thought ok let’s do it! It’ll be fun plus a good cause.  [click to continue…]

Coping with a Running Injury: How to Find a Bright Side

Confession: I’m depressed. This is something I don’t like admitting, considering our world’s current events and how not being able to run is hardly tragic. But I haven’t gone for a run in five weeks. I missed the Chicago Marathon, a race that had been on my bucket list for years. I can’t run now. I might not be able to run for another two to three weeks, if I’m lucky.

So I’m depressed. [click to continue…]
