The Fairest Week In Review: 6/30

JENN: Did you get any runs in last week?

MOON: Nope. But this is my LAST week of no running. Next Sunday I'll be a gym member again. Super excited. How were your runs this week?

JENN: They were perfectly okay but nothing inspiring. I got done what I wanted done - including a 4+ miles speed run on Friday - but there was none of the proverbial pep in my step. Ah well - status quo is better than nothing at all!

MOON: Mmhmm! Doing better than me. XD

JENN: Awww. Well, you're doing exciting life things!

MOON: Haha, I supposeeeeee. I miss running, though. Ah, well. One more week!! Must finish packing. Our apartment is filled with boxes and yet it seems we've packed nothing!


JENN: Just a note: the Princess Half Marathon goes on sale in a couple weeks. :D The WDW Marathon is still at 78% full. Just things to ponder.

MOON: I'll have to look at the financial aspect, but maaaaaybe.

JENN: Awesome! I'll keep you updated. ☺

And now: the roundup!

- Prairie Princess Runners finds inspiration at every age.
- Back at Square Zero looks at what has made her faster.
- Theme Park Insider says a final goodbye to the Adventurer's Club. Kungaloosh!
- Living A Disney Life understand that WDW breakfast = sugar.
- The Disney Tourist Blog has a nifty look at Tanabata Days at Tokyo Disneyland.
- If you ever wanted to know what the food is like on a Disney cruise, easyWDW has you covered.

The Sharks of WDW: Toy Story Midway Mania

Have I ever mentioned my favorite animal here? Well, it's the humble shark. Because they are AWESOME. So whenever I see them in WDW, I combine two loves in one place and become super excited.

Sure, there are the obvious places - The Seas with Nemo and Friends has a whole play section dedicated to Anchor, Chum, and Bruce. And they get their own song in Finding Nemo: The Musical, so there's that.


Plus the Coral Reef, of course, and I hear you can swim with them in Typhoon Lagoon, although I think they might have closed that attraction? Anyway, yeah, they show up a lot in any Nemo or ocean related exhibit, but sometimes you can find them in unexpected places, too.

To that end, I have dedicated my life, my time, my talents to the goal of locating all the random sharks in WDW. Let's start here, in the main queue for Toy Story Midway Mania:


I don't know what game this is supposed to represent - Go Fish? Or some super-aggressive aquatic version of Magic: The Gathering? - but I like it.

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: 6/25

JENN: Happy six months to Christmas! So how was your week in running?

MOON: If you had asked, "So how was your week in PACKING?" my answer would have been "Wonderful!!!" I met my box-a-day quota twofold.

It's been crazy-hot outside and I don't belong to a gym at present, so running has been taking a lower placement on my list of priorities. Although, July should see me up and going again. I actually really miss it. When I come home from work I think, "I wish I could go for a run..."

JENN: Yeah, it's pretty brutal out there. You have to get up WAY early if you want to make an outdoor run of it. But hey, packing can be a workout too!

MOON: Tell me about it. Especially when you are packing with minimal air conditioning, haha.


JENN: I hope the air conditioning is strong where you're going!

MOON: Thanks! How was your running this week?

JENN: Oh, much better. For starters, I wasn't super sick. Score!I did two speed runs and they actually weren't bad. I'm gonna try to keep incorporating them at least once a week.

MOON: Yay!! Glad you are better. :)

JENN: One final note: WDW Marathon registration is currently at 78%. Merely a fact I thought I'd throw out there.

MOON: Thank you for the update!

JENN: Something to ponder while we go to the roundup.

- Darlin' Rae runs with and without people.
- Elbowglitter ponders fatlogic.
- Mom's Magical Miles knows where to find races that dial down the scary time limits.
- Just Me & My Running Shoes reviews Port Orleans Riverside. (Where I stayed for Dopey!)
- A Pinch of Pixie Dust tries ALL the Star Wars Weekend cupcakes.
- Living a Disney Life gets pirate'd up.
- Mouse on the Mind visits Trader Sam's Grog Grotto.
- The Disney Hipsters rightly mourn the loss of plastic cheese at WDW.

In Which Jenn's Disney Loyalties Are Tested

The rather mundane element is this: I am going to a conference in August. This is my fourth year attending said conference, and while it is not without elements of fun (or not; I'm looking at you, San Francisco), the trip is not in and of itself something to get all worked up over.

Only the exciting element is this: this year it's in... wait for it... ORLANDO, FLORIDA.

I'm not so lucky that the conference is on Disney property, and I'll of course spend most of my time at, y'know, the actual conference, but still - there will be some free time, so it's time for a piecemeal Disney trip with hotel expenses paid, right?

Well... maybe. Guys, I'm thinking of defecting.

Not permanently! NEVER permanently. Disney parks are hands down my favorite ever, and I've been to lots of others. But here are some thoughts:

  • I am not a huge Harry Potter fan, but I've been to the original Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Universal Studios Florida and it was a pretty awesome experience.
  • I am therefore curious about the new Diagon Alley portion. I hear great things about the Hogwarts Express and the Gringotts ride. 
  • The hotel where I'm staying is equidistant from Disney and Universal...
  • ...except on the final night, when the wrap-up party takes place at the Hard Rock Cafe Orlando. There's only one of those, right? The one at Universal. I could totally skip some of the party for some butterbeer action.


I dunno, guys. I <3 Disney SO MUCH, but I'm leaning toward snapping up a Universal ticket and doing the Harry Potter thing this time around. It kinda feels like a gimme, y'know? I'll mostly be attending conference sessions and I won't have a ton of time at any park. It being such an afterthought, why not make that afterthought Universal?

Thoughts? Am I a terrible turncoat here? DON'T WORRY WDW YOU'RE STILL MY FAVORITE I'LL SEE YOU IN NOVEMBER!!!

In Which Jenn's MCM Training Is Practically Done For Her

Hey, so, know how I'm running the Marine Corps Marathon for the Diabetes Action Team? That's 'cause I didn't make the lottery, and that's 'cause... I didn't enter it.

See, I looked back over my training for last year's MCM and found a sticking point in the 20 mile run. I just... didn't feel like going through that training cycle. I did my 20 miler on the treadmill, which was actually fine for me. But I'm at a new gym now that would require restarting the treadmill like three times to get my mileage, and while that distinction is arbitrary I didn't like the idea of all that pausing. And I certainly didn't want to try to organize an outdoor 20 miler for myself, what with all the water and gels I'd have to haul with me. I hit a mental block regarding that fateful training day.

So I didn't enter the lottery because I didn't feel like putting in the work, more or less. But! Then I came across the National Capital 20 Miler, with a start line a mere 20 minute drive from my apartment. Rather than a training run I had to organize myself, this was a race - with water stops and port-a-potties at regular intervals and everything! I mean, it practically performed the training run for me... assuming, of course, I had a MCM bib. Which I did not.




Which brings me to the bit you already know: I'm running MCM through the Diabetes Action Team (and if you're feeling hyper-generous at the moment I wouldn't be sad if you threw a five spot at my donation page :D). The twenty mile practice run is one month before the marathon, so that's all set. Awesome.

But wait! There's more! I recently learned about the Parks Half Marathon, with a course that runs through the local parks in my area. This one starts one town away and ends within, max, a 15 minute walk from my apartment. AND it's two weeks before the 20 miler, so great training for that. Pow!


Icing on the cake*: two weeks before the Parks Half, I'll be spending the week at the beach. I do intend to run there but not a whole lot. Tapering: also done for me!

There you have it: my MCM training, provided by other people.

How carefully do you organize your race schedule?

* I hope there's cake at the finish line.

In Which Jenn Has Another runDisney Dream

It has begun.

I've mentioned before that my runDisney nightmares tend to begin months in advance of my races. Oh, yes, I said nightmares - not once have I had a dream where I won the race. No, it's always something like this:

So I've started the race - I'm pretty sure in this case it was supposed to be the WDW Marathon - and I'm plugging away when for some reason I have to stop. I think I was futzing around with my shoes or something, but when I look up, everyone else is gone. I start running the course again despite the fact that it no longer appears to be set up, and people are in the Magic Kingdom already. But nobody's stopping me, so I plug along, all the while convinced that if I just keep at it I'll catch up with the back of the pack in time to finish the race.

I run through Fantasyland, avoiding the crowds, and eventually wind up outside the park on the trail to the Grand Floridian. It is at this point it suddenly occurs to me that I never went to the expo to get my bib activated. Aha! This is why I'm not getting any texts about my progress at certain checkpoints.

STUPID BIBS RUINING EVERYTHING.

But wait, that can't be right - I'm wearing my bib, and you can't get your bib without going to the expo, or anyway there's no "activation" thing once you have it. That doesn't make any sense. Oh, I know what's going on - this is a dream! 

And so I woke up. Whew! At least dream me doesn't give up easily. 

Anyone had any running dreams lately? They don't have to be as paranoid as mine.

The Fairest Week In Review: 6/16

JENN: How was running last week? Getting anything in?

MOON: Ha, absolutely not! Did you?

JENN: Ha, absolutely not much! As I mentioned last week, I was WAAAAAY sick Tuesday. I took a walk anyway but I really shouldn't have. I was less sick on Wednesday but still not in great shape; I took another walk. Thursday I tried to run and did but only 3.5 miles and sloooooowly. So Friday I walked again. In conclusion: blerg.

MOON: I'm sure you were probably dehydrated.

JENN: Oh, yeah, definitely.

MOON: Sickness and so many things to dooooo.

JENN: And summer always seems so promising! The good news is, I feel pretty decent today, so I'm going to try to run after work. We'll see how it goes - hopefully I'm back to normal!

MOON: To be fair, SPRING always seems so promising. It really throws off a gradual adaption to weather when one is denied spring.

JENN: This is very true. We don't get much in the way of gentle buildup around here.


MOON: Fall and spring are my favorite for running.Unfortunately, those seasons keep getting overpowered.

JENN: Let's just move to San Diego and never want for good weather again!

Very minor note: WDW Marathon still at 72% full. :D

MOON: Ha, it seems to be holding pretty strong! Gives me more timeeeee.

JENN: Haha, true! In the interim, check out the roundup.

- Back to Square Zero HAS KITTENS AHHHHHHH!!!!!
- If you're new to runDisney registration, Half Crazy Mama has this handy guide.
- run geek runDisney plays the red tag game. For some reason I play that game a lot.
- Living a Disney Life eats terrible things at Disney.
- Rolling with the Magic makes MagicBands pretty.
- The Disney Hipsters give the world the gift of Spaceship Earth's background music. I intend to play this at work. Possibly forever.
- The Main Street Gazette likes the Disney dinosaurs, too. Yay Disney dinosaurs!
- Theme Park Insider offers an interesting take on Disney's relationship with middle class families.

In Which Jenn Is Sick & Also An Idiot

PSA: When you are sick, you may think to yourself, "I planned to run today, but I don't think I can." This is correct. If you don't think you can run, you shouldn't; training schedule or no training schedule, you could just make yourself sicker. Don't run. Good.

Okay, now that we have that established: COROLLARY REMARK. Do NOT follow this thought up with "But I can go for a walk!" when you feel nauseated and weak. Okay? Just... don't do it. I know you use calorie burn as a kind of disordered eating crutch and that's much better than a lot of alternatives, but you're NAUSEATED and CAN'T EAT and BASICALLY WHAT I'M SAYING HERE is BE SMARTER THAN I AM, OKAY?

Also on the body dysmorphia tip: has anyone ever spent 24 hours not eating for whatever reason and thought to themselves, "hey, at least I look skinny"? This is not the voice in your head that merits your attention. Let us all remember that.

The good news here is that I THINK I just accidentally dosed myself with a mild allergen. I'm feeling better already and hope to run back at full speed next week. Happy weekend, everyone!

The Fairest Week In Review: 6/11

JENN: How was your training last week?

MOON: Again, terrible. I've had so much work to do lately, it's kind of crazy.

JENN: Well, that's probably keeping your heart rate up, at least!

MOON: Nothing like stress to keep you going. XD Also, being sick always makes long weeks even longer. How was your training?

JENN: Last week was fine. Two long runs and a short speed run. I'd intended to do the same this week but so far I haven't run a step; I'm sick too. But hey, at least it's happening when we don't have any big runs coming up!

MOON: Haha, however, from my perspective it seems like I'm just perpetually sick. >_>You would like living with a doctor would improve these things just on principal.

JENN: I bet he brings home the really EXCITING germs. You know, the kind that laugh in the face of medication and whatnot.

MOON: Haha, yeah, looking forward to next year allllllready. I had a record number amount of colds this year. I'm blaming the bf.

JENN: Sounds like good solid logic to me!

I don't know what's wrong with me; I never get sick like this. Colds on occasion, sure, but not nausea and weakness. It's laaaaaaaame.


MOON: So, a surprising amount of people I know have the flu.

JENN: Ugh, maybe it's that. Awesome. Hopefully one of those 48 hour jobs, though.

MOON: Hopefully!

JENN: In the meantime, let's hope the roundup can cheer us up.

- We Run Disney goes a-running on the wedding morn.
- Run Eat Repeat survives a bad run.
- From Dancing to Running goes on a summer run.
- It's a Marathon AND a Sprint performs a tempo run of sorts.
- Pink Elephant on Parade gets the race started.
- Back at Square Zero chooses people over PRs.
- Will Run for Ears chooses her favorite Disney park songs.
- The Disney Tourist Blog Be's Our Guest.
- Eating WDW visits the Rebel Hangar.
- MousePlanet considers the reality of posted wait times.

Kill/Refurb/Marry: Extinct Attractions

It's Kill/Refurb/Marry time again! I found this installment of the monthly blog hop particularly fertile. This time around we're talking about extinct attractions. Strap in!

Kill: American Idol: The Experience

Man, an embarrassment of riches with this one. Body Wars is a decided no thank you on my part, but since I never rode it I can't speak to it knowledgeably (although I can viscerally, and my viscera say: NO GOING INSIDE PEOPLE I'M LOOKING AT YOU MAGIC SCHOOL BUS).

I came THISCLOSE to killing Superstar Limo, too. Since I made it to California Adventure during the extremely brief period the ride actually existed, I think I am uniquely qualified to judge this perplexing and unpopular attraction as easily murdered.

And then I remembered that American Idol: The Experience was quite recently a thing. What are some words I can use to describe my opinion of AI:TE*? Awkward, forced, cringe-worthy, inferior prizes, total time suck for everyone involved. DO NOT WANT. Next!

* Hereinafter to be referred to as Aiight.

Refurb: ExtraTERRORrestrial Alien Encounter

I know. I KNOW. A lot of you just LOOOOVED this ride. But I do NOT like touching under the best of circumstances. I still haven't even tried the replacement Stitch ride - I went through the line once but took the chicken exit in a panic because NO DON'T TOUCH AHHHH. Add a horror element and I can only imagine if I'd ever gone on Alien Encounter I would've had a nervous breakdown.

All that having been said, I find the concept very interesting. Can we bring it back, but offer a stand-off-to-the-side-and-just-watch option? All the animatronics, light flickers, and frightening sound effects, none of the saliva, hot breath, and fake alien fingers?

Marry: Horizons

The obvious choice is of course Mr. Toad's Wild Ride, but since it still exists in Disneyland I feel like it doesn't qualify. 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea? Again, Disneyland.

I thought about demanding that Dreamfinder be brought back immediately, but as the Journey Into Imagination still exists in a different, albeit inferior iteration, I don't think that works either (and anyway I mentioned it last time).

I finally landed on Horizons, that much-loved dark ride that bowed in favor of Mission: Space. And as much as I love me some Gary Sinise, I must say the deletion makes me sad. I have fond memories of discovering the attraction with my family in sixth grade, and since this was in my No Roller Coasters Too Scary phase, I was thrilled to find something so gently entertaining. The scenes were cute and the finale "motion simulator" video was fun. And when I later found out that it was meant to be a sequel of sorts to the Carousel of Progress, I loved it even more.

If ever there was an extinct attraction with an enormous fan base, it's Horizons - someone even recreated the entire thing virtually, which is a nice stopgap but not quite the same. Please, Disney, won't you give us back our Horizons?

In Which Jenn Has Wine & Dine PTSD

I woke up just before six this morning for an early outdoor run and immediately checked the weather - the night before there had been a chance of rain. Outside my window the roads were wet but it wasn't actively raining; I checked my weather app and it assured me that there was no chance of rain until 9am. I was tempted to go back to bed and run on the treadmill after work, but I've been wussing out on outdoor running a lot the past couple weeks - an outdoor run it was to be. I stepped outside and all was well: no rain!

FOR THE FIRST TEN MINUTES.

What followed for the remainder of my 10+ miles was a series of off-and-on rain showers that went from nonexistent to arguably pouring, and in the latter moments I couldn't help but think to myself: when have I felt like I was running in a shower before? Oh, right! The Wine & Dine Half Marathon! And so from then on I could do nothing to dissuade my brain from presenting me with a series of decidedly damp W&D flashbacks, my favorite being when the combination of the dark and a particularly black puddle caused me to completely lose track of the ground.

Congratulations, Wine & Dine Half Marathon 2014 - you've officially scarred me for life. But don't think that means you've beaten me! I'm coming for you again this year and you better show me something better. And even if you don't, you DEFINITELY haven't won. To combat your influence, here's a picture of happy post-race times. YOU'LL NEVER TAKE ME ALIVE.

The Fairest Week In Review: 6/03

JENN: Remember how last week I said I was going to get fitted for new sneakers? Well, I lied. For the simple reason that new sneakers, purchased in-store, are BLOODY EXPENSIVE and I decided I didn't want to drop the money just yet.

I'll re-evaluate in a month or so; in the meantime, I should be fine fine with my current sneaker fleet. I have three pairs with varying amounts of life in them left that should get me through at least another six to eight weeks.

MOON: I think you'll be okay! As long as your feet aren't hurting after going for a run.

JENN: True, true. So how was your week in running?

MOON: Oy, this week was terrible.

JENN: Fantastic! Nowhere to go but up!

Adventure is out there!

MOON: Yes, well... Hopefully I'll be back outside soon. It's a mixture of high-maintenance running requirements (ie not too sunny, I don't to tan), being swamped with work, and in apartment limbo (will be moving in one month and didn't want to commit to a gym membership). Sigh.

JENN: Awww, that's okay. There's still plenty of time before any hypothetical marathons!

MOON: Ha, yes! I'm still debating the Baltimore Marathon. More and more I get feelings of the extreme. "Yes!!! Must do it!" And, "No!! This is impossible!"

JENN: Psh, clearly you SHOULD do it! (Unless you want to do the WDW Marathon, which is still only 72% full.)

MOON: And you know, there's always the looming question for me: do I start my PhD next fall?! And if I answer yes, that requires many monies to travel, interview, take exams, etc. Which do I prioritize: mind or body? And the complaint: why can't I have both ;-;?

JENN: Yup. Pretty much.

MOON: How was your week?

JENN: Really good while simultaneously really eh - I did a 14 miler and wound up totaling 32 miles but by the end of the week my runs were draaaaaagging. This goes back to my theory that maybe I should try running a little LESS.

MOON: Maybe you should try running shorter, faster runs. Keep building those up until you can increase the distance of the faster speed and maybe that'll build up some new momentum for you?
I did this for about a month and the result was rather nice.

JENN: Hmmm. I may just have to try that.

In the meantime, there's always the roundup.

- Road Runner Girl ran every day for an entire year.
- Through Heather's Looking Glass assembles race day gear.
- Fairytales and Fitness offers some interesting marathon statistics.
- Will Run for Ears fills out a Disney survey.
- Disney Every Day shares a fascinating video featuring historically accurate Disney princesses.
- Zannaland is rightfully all about the immortal Dick Van Dyke.
- A Pinch of Pixie Dust visits the Sci Fi Dine-In. I got the same milkshake!
- Disney Tourist Blog is all about the dinosaurs. And so are we!
