Six ways, to be exact. And in the spirit of Valentine’s Day, there’s gonna be a whole lotta run loving out there today, since this is today’s Tuesdays on the Run blog link-up, hosted by My No Guilt Life, Marcia’s Healthy Slice, and MCM Mama Runs. [click to continue…]

We made it to race number 2 of the Dopey Challenge. And I think I laughed more during this race than I have at any Disney race ever.

Let me start with our costumes. Somewhere months back when discussing if we’d do Dopey Challenge I made a deal with Laura I’d run as Elvis, the costume she wanted.
