New Challenges, New Distances

img_4424

Ever since I returned from my Disney Princess Half Marathon trip (recap part one here; recap part two here), I've been anxious to put my half marathon training to the test. As you may recall, I didn't exactly perform at my best in Walt Disney World -- namely, because I decided to make photo ops and … [Read more...]

727314-1128-0050s

Just in case you missed my previous recaps from the Disney Princess Half Marathon weekend: check out my expo recap here, and race recap part one here. When I left off, I had spotted my ChEAR Squad in front of Cinderella's Castle. Now I know what they mean by the power of the spectator in a race, … [Read more...]

Race Recap: Disney Princess Half Marathon (part one)

img_1886

I've been waiting for a long time to be able to write this particular post: a recap of my very first half marathon in my very favorite place in the world. I've decided to split it into two sections because, otherwise, it would just be RIDICULOUSLY long...especially since I thought I'd share the … [Read more...]

Recap: Disney’s Fit for a Princess Expo

dscf2603

I thought I'd start my Princess Half Marathon weekend recaps with a look at the race expo (if you didn't see my first post-Princess recap, click here). Appropriately dubbed "Fit for a Princess," the expo was pretty much the female runner's heaven, with endless booths of must-have running gear and … [Read more...]

I DID IT! My First Half Marathon: Disney Princess!

dscf2762_2

I'm back from my first half marathon and RunDisney event -- the Disney Princess Half Marathon -- and I'll be posting a whole lot of recaps and photos over the next few days...but first and foremost, I would like to announce that I DID finish, and I DID have the time of my life! I cannot WAIT for my … [Read more...]

The Moment I’ve Been Waiting For

princessmedal

It's finally here! Tomorrow I will be flying to Orlando for my very first half marathon: the Disney Princess Half Marathon. I could probably use this final blog post for a 2,000 word narrative on what this race means to me, or a summary of all the blood, sweat, and tears I put into the training … [Read more...]

Why I Love Running

2013-02-06-13-59-37

In honor of Valentine's Day, I thought I'd proclaim the reasons I've fallen head over heels for running. (I better love it, seeing as how ONE WEEK FROM TODAY, I will be headed down to Walt Disney World to take on my very first half marathon!) 1.) The way I feel when I'm done. Sure, sure, the … [Read more...]

13.1 Lessons I’ve Learned While Training for My First 13.1

12m_2

Yesterday, I braved the snow and ice (thanks a lot, Nemo!) and went out for my last long run before the Disney Princess Half Marathon. I planned to take on 12 miles -- my longest run to date. Though the packed down snow and icy patches along my usual route slowed me down a bit, I am happy to … [Read more...]

Race Recap: NYCRUNS Riverside Park Hot Chocolate 10K

hotchocolate10k

I'm down to the final three weeks of training before the Disney Princess Half Marathon, and I convinced myself that it would be a great idea to run one last 10K. I basically had four good reasons: 1.) I haven't run a 10K since last November, nor competed in a race in 2013 yet...and it just seemed … [Read more...]

Taking a Leap of Faith

dumbo-double-dare-fb-cover

This week, I did something absolutely insane. I still can't believe I did this. On Tuesday morning, I started hearing rumblings of something called "Dumbo Double Dare" on Twitter and the DIS Boards threads I've been frequenting ever since I registered for the Disney Princess Half Marathon. Not … [Read more...]
