My Secret MWer has a sense of humor! Thanks for the Halloween card and well wishes for my upcoming race!
Yesterday was my final "long run" before the Wine & Dine Half Marathon. In just under 3 hours I ran 14 miles burning just over 1400 calories! It was rough, but I kept going and eventually got through it. Not only was this my longest distance yet, but it was my first time running 13.1 miles!
Since I didn't get to attend MNSSHP this year, I went to a local Halloween attraction instead. Maris Farms has an amazing haunted corn maze and woods that takes nearly an hour to walk through. It had all the typical scares: scary clowns, scary dentist w/drill, scary butcher, etc. It reminded me of Halloween Horror Nights. At the end we were even chased by men with chainsaws! It was very well done and a lot of fun!
Is there anyone planning on being at WDW the weekend of Nov 8-9 that is interested in running the Wine & Dine Half Marathon? I know someone who isn't able to make it...
Good morning everyone! I have exactly 2 weeks to go before I'm home! Have a great day!
As many of you know, last Saturday was my third and final practice race before the Wine & Dine Half Marathon next month! A friend and I participated in the 2013 Black Cat Fun Run, a Halloween themed night race. I finished the 5 mile course in 57:01 (11:24/mile), a great time for me! There were some creative Halloween costumes! My favorite was the peacock. It was a fun race!
With just 18 days to go... I am happy to announce the packing has begun! No Slacker Packer here!
I would like to send a little shout out to Laura in Member Services at DVC! I had to call regarding our Magical Express luggage tags and vouchers. My mother and I are arriving on different days and they issued the tags & vouchers before I had provided her flight info. Laura rocked it and is having a new set issued and sent to me . I just love a positive Disney experience!
Thank you tracsant, I love my NBC notepad and Halloween stickers! As usual, you are too kind and so generous. They are just too fun!
Good morning everyone & happy Thursday! Can you believe I only have 3 weeks to go? Yay!!! The excitement has really kicked in!
Well, the third time is a charm! I finally made it through 12.5 miles feeling strong the entire way! I finished in 2:39:42 (just over 12 min/mile) burning a total of 1,290 calories. Just 4 weeks from tonight and it's "GO TIME"!
Thank you for the WDW postcard Mrs I! You picked the perfect photo for me ("SEE YA REAL SOON!"), since they will see me real soon. 27 days to be exact!
Good morning everyone & happy Friday! Here's a bonus coupon for the DisneyStore.com Happy shopping!
I would like to send a BIG thank you to my friend, mzdisnee! I always enjoy new editions to my Buena Vista Bugle and park map collections. But, I especially love the inspirational "13.1" charm for my running shoes! Thank you Jennifer and I can't wait until November 7th either!!!
I wasn't home yesterday to post the obligatory Magic Band photo... So here it is! 28 days!!!
I have a little Disney with me at work too! These were all taken in my temporary cubicle and have been acquired over the years.
Like I said, all of my Disney collectibles are packed away in boxes and bins. However, that doesn't mean there aren't little touches of Disney throughout my house!
Good Monday morning everyone! I have exactly 1 month to go before I leave for WDW! I was tempted to start packing yesterday, but decided I'll wait a couple more weeks. Have a great day!
Good evening everyone! This morning a friend and I participated in the Run Wild 5k at Northwest Trek (Western Washington's version of AK). Park admission was included with registration. It was a super fun day and great practice for Disney's Wine & Dine Half Marathon next month!
Attention all future Wine & Dine Half Marathon runners! The official course map, event guide, and corral assignments have been posted on the runDisney website! (Waivers will be provided one month before the race.)
