First Quarter Fitness and Running Haul

I must admit to being a fan of haul videos and blog posts. I’m not a big shopper so being able to discover products or merchandise others love can be a huge time saver. So with the end of March almost here, I thought it’d share my own fitness and running haul for the first quarter of the year!

Please note that while I will be using Amazon associate links, I’m not being paid to promote any of these items nor did I receive them for free. So with that, let’s get on with my… [click to continue…]

Beauty and The Beast Movie Review

Beauty and the Beast Movie Review

I finally got to see Beauty & the Beast movie on Tuesday night! We had initially bought tickets for Thursday when it premiered, but my eldest son hurt his foot while home for spring break, (and now, ironically, has a walking boot on the same foot as me.) So we exchanged our tickets which ended up being great seeing as how my youngest son was able to join us since he’s his turn to be home from college!

The short version: I absolutely LOVED IT!! [click to continue…]

Disney's Princess Enchanted 10k Recap | 2017 Princess Half Marathon Weekend

Grab some coffee, folks, because this recap of the 2018 Disney’s Princess Enchanted 10k is gonna be very long and very photo-heavy! And it also could be more appropriately titled Hello, Balloon Ladies, we meet again!

Yep. I once again repeated my Wine & Dine 10k performance by walking and stopping for enough character photos to put me face-to-face with them again. But I’m getting ahead of myself. Let me pick up with my Fit for a Princess Expo and Princess 5k recap by starting at the beginning with our… [click to continue…]

Disney's Princess Half Marathon 2018: I'm IN! And broke.

Did you hear any grunts of pain earlier today? That was from my credit card, after yet another heavy workout it has been through this year from registering for the WDW Dopey Challenge, the Disneyland Double Dare and 5k last week. So when an email from runDisney had arrived with a pre-registration link 2017 participants … my credit card cringed. I cringed. We both cringed.

[Sidebar: By the way, I absolutely LOVE this new policy! It’s a nice way to reward loyal runDisney fans, aka, addicts, plus it will cut down registration day stress that always makes me feel like this:] [click to continue…]

Gilmore Girls Tag: Pre-A Year in the Life Fun!

At the time of writing this, it’s Sunday morning, the day I FINALLY will watch Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life! It was my intention to watch this since its release in November, but life got crazy. Then the holidays arrived with my boys home for winter break. And then work picked up.

But no more delaying, TODAY I will finally get the answers I’ve been dying for. How did Richard die? Why is Rory … Rory, of all people, jobless? Did Miss Patty ever marry again, adding to her collection of ex-husbands? What’s up with Paris? How many more jobs has Kurt had in the last nine years? Will Michel ever age … I mean, his skin, flawless! How much is Jess still in Rory’s life? And for the love of coffee beans, why is Lorelai doubting her happiness with Luke, haven’t we been through that enough already?

And most importantly: What will the last four words be? [click to continue…]

And the recapping continues! Today I’m chatting about Disney’s awesome Princess 5k, the first race of the Princess Half Marathon Weekend. While it’s not my favorite 5k, (Disneyland took that honor last September,) it’s still near and dear to my heart since it was my very first runDisney race back in 2013!

For that race, I ran solo and felt like a total loner because I hardly knew any of the others in my group nor did I have many friends back home.

For this race, I ran solo and felt totally loved by supportive friends, both my roommates and those back home! Oh, the magic of running. [click to continue…]
