My Running and Racing Bucket (and Anti-Bucket) List with a runDisney Twist!

Back in January, I shared my racing and running limits … things I have absolutely no interest in doing, my “anti-bucket list.” Of course, back then I was injured and not able to run. 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. It’s right by the Disneyland Hotel – a quick walk from the expo. We’d love to see you there! [click to continue…]


If you’re a runDisney fan, then you know that the hottest runDisney topic right now is the future of runDisney races in Disneyland.

I’m talking fun costumes, lots of laughs, and taking our sweet time in race, getting tons of pictures and doing another another… [click to continue…]


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…]

Balancing Life and Training: Changing My Perspective

Happy Thursday, everyone! Yesterday was Day 11 of Vlogtober and seeing as how many of us … myself included … are gearing up for big races such as the Dopey Challenge, I chatted about balancing life and training … although not in the way you think.

It certainly wasn’t in the way I originally thought.

Now, when it comes to blogging and making videos, I often pick topics about things I’m struggling with. That way, not only can I help you but I’m also helping myself. This if definitely the case when it comes to balancing life and training. [click to continue…]
