#RunDisney registration! Surprisingly stressful.

I am a veteran of comic cons. While I stopped going to San Diego Comic-Con, I remember registration days. I know how frustrating that is… And yet, RunDisney registration days terrify me. Mostly because these days, the races sell out quickly. Today’s registration day for the Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend, and I managed to get

It’s Race Weekend!

Welcome to the Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend… Better known as one of two weekends that TheBoy and I are guaranteed to have alone this year. Right now it’s pretty early to be up when you don’t have kids around, and it’s weird to realize that if the last couple months had gone differently, I’d be

Summer 2014: Getaway Weekend

Well, summer has been going, and I’ve been suspiciously quiet. I’ve had a lot going on, some that I can’t really get into – but there have been a lot of amazing things. Earlier this month, we decided to do a weekend trip near where TheBoy works- which is right off the beach. We’d bought

The #Roadto10k, tripping and falling.

Surprisingly, I’m not being literal. Last week, my normal running routine was disrupted, and so I ran on a treadmill (it’s why I didn’t post any pictures or runtimes). I hate running on treadmills. There’s the slight incline, so your pace is always worse than usual. And then it’s boring. It doesn’t matter what you’re

#Roadto10k, the beginning

If you follow me on Instagram… or any social media account, now that I think about it, you probably have seen some pictures tracking my runs- all tagged with #roadto10k. This August, I’m running the Disneyland 10k, as part of RunDisney’s Disneyland Half-Marathon Weekend. It is by far the longest run I’ll ever have attempted

Blood and Iron.

I’ve been working on a much longer blog post, one that I want to get just right. And I’ve been writing. Lots of fiction, which tends to mean I don’t get as many ideas for this blog. So instead, you get this, an update on my health. My iron is up, though not in normal

A walk, frozen in time.

I’m a big fan of nature, even if some plants are determined to kill me (seasonal allergies). I don’t like running on my treadmill, or even for walking on one. It just doesn’t feel right, to not feel the wind on my face. Not very long ago we had a rainstorm pass through. As soon

Thoughts on C25K

In training for the 5k, I did what many people who haven’t exercised at all have done- turned to Couch to 5k to help me do it. I followed the routine fairly religiously. I started off by walking a mile for a couple of weeks, and then started the program. But no matter what I

Go the Distance.

Sorry it’s taken me awhile to get this post up. You would not believe the weekend I’ve had. Aside from the 5k, we had no water at the house for a day and then the internet was dead. If you’ve been reading this blog for any length of time, you’ll know that on Saturday, I
