runDisney Character and Race Photo Tips

Anyone who has ran a runDisney race with me or watched one of my video race recaps knows I love getting character photos! How much? Well, during my fifteen runDisney race weekends, I’ve gotten 352 character photos as well as 25 run-by selfies and countless photos with costumed cast members. (For a complete montage, check out my character tips vlog!)

So yeah. I have some experience in this territory. A lot. And now that the Wine & Dine and Super Heroes Half Marathon is right around the corner, I thought it’d be a great time to share my best tips.

Well, that didn’t exactly happen.

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.
