#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

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

Two years and a month ago…

Two years and a month ago, I was nearing the end of doing NaBloPoMo- which was doing a blog post a month, like Nanowrimo. That year I’d been getting cramps, spiking fevers, and occasionally vomiting. But towards the end of November, it was so bad I went to the hospital. And after a lot of

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

Tick Tock

Tomorrow is my 5k. It’s getting real! TheBoy and I have checked into our hotel, picked up our racing bibs… and it’s on! I know a lot of people wondered if we were going through with this, given everything that’s happened. But TheBoy’s mother and grandfather were both insistent that we go right on ahead

C25K Week Two Redux.

I had another long weird week where I didn’t get much running in. So today I went, and as I haven’t been able to complete Week Three Day One yet… I thought doing Week Two Day Three was a good way to ease into it. Week Three has a five minute warm up and 90

Nothing much to say.

I know. I don’t have much to say? It’s shocking. It’s been a long hot crazy week and I’m drained. I had a flare up last week, and the cramps went on and off for the last five days. As in, it would skip a day and then bother me the next. This was in

C25K: Week Two Day Two

Week Two, Day Two A five minute warm-up walk, followed by the following intervals: 6 jogging for 90 seconds, 5 intervals of brisk walking for 2 minutes each. The program that I use gives me a five minute cool down as well. After the run on the treadmill, I was pretty eager to see how
