Training Update: Vision Boards and Other Visual Ways to Stay Motivated

Happy Saturday, everyone! Heather Jergensen from the Running with Grace channel and I are just rolling along with Vlogtober. For Day 20 yesterday, I shared a quick training update … which includes me not being able to run due to my orthodics causing me knee pain and needing to be adjusted. I’ve also been feeling some other pain that has me concerned and I’ll be discussing with my doctor next Tuesday.

For now, I shared some visual ways that I stay motivated with my favorite being my Vision Board that hangs in my gym. I made it through Shutterfly, although I should have gone with a smaller size since finding a frame to fit it has been difficult. [click to continue…]

So for Day 18 of Vlogtober with Heather Jergensen, I thought I’d chat about this list and if my thoughts are still the same or have I changed my mind?

And to twist things up some more, what if runDisney offered the following races, would my answer still be no? Let’s jump in and find out! [click to continue…]

Tips for runDisney's Super Heroes Half Marathon Weekend

Heather Jergensen from the Running with Grace channel and I are now over the halfway mark for Vlogtober! And seeing as how many of us are gearing up for runDisney’s 2017 Super Heroes Half Marathon Weekend, I shared a tips video on Monday and today, Heather will be following this up by going through the Official Digital Event Guide.

If you’ll be in Disneyland for Super Heroes, we’ll be having a joint Joyful Miles, Running with Grace, and YouTuber Kimberly Estabrook Meet-Up at Trader Sam’s on Thursday, November 9th at 5:00pm.

If you’re a runDisney fan, then you know that the hottest runDisney topic right now is the future of runDisney races in Disneyland. There’s plenty of rumors and speculation ranging from no races for two years to no more half marathons – only 5ks and 10ks, and worse … no more races in Disneyland at all.

Having serious computer issues while taking on a YouTube challenge such as Vlogtober is seriously not fun. My poor computer needs love and attention from my computer guy, (and a new drive since it’s bursting at the seams,) but I’m hoping it can hang in there until November. When I’m at Disneyland for the Super Heroes Half Marathon Weekend, it, (and me,) can lighten up our content production and take a break! [click to continue…]
