In Which Jenn Regroups With A New Goal

For awhile, there was the small but real possibility that I might be able to move to Orlando. Last week that hope was dashed. So – what does one do in the wake of such a disappointment? Regroup, of course! First, I must remind myself that as much as I would die for year-round warmth and Walt Disney World proximity, there are good things about staying where I am. I like my current job. Moving is hard, especially over long distances. My friends are here (and are hereby not allowed to move anywhere without my permission). And, ever irreplaceable,...

The Fairest Week In Review: 3/25

MOON: So, let’s blog? JENN: Indeed. How was your running this week? MOON: Ehhhhhhhh. JENN: You get much in? MOON: Yeah, I went to the gym about 6 times. My left leg has been a little spotty. JENN: Oh dear. Recurring injury? MOON: Yeah, it’s been like this for about a week, maybe a bit longer. JENN: Hmmm. Might wanna rest a bit. MOON: Maaaaaybe. How was your week? JENN: I think “Ehhhhhh” about sums it up. I got my mileage in but I’m still way slow. Nonetheless, we soldier on. MOON: I suppose. Here’s to a better week!...

Photographic Memory: Terror In Radiator Springs

JENN: It’s a Photographic Memory! This is the on-ride photo from our trip on Radiator Springs Racers in Disney’s California Adventure. I was initially super bummed when I realized I had forgotten to include this in the relevant portion of our trip report, but then I realized it was a golden Photographic Memory opportunity. Moon is in the picture. Trust me. MOON: It appears I’m hiding! That one is pretty recent. CA, right? JENN: Yup, from our trip in January. Do you recall your experience on Radiator Springs Racers? MOON: Hmm, well, I was expecting it to be pretty much the same as...

The Fairest Week In Review: 3/18

JENN: Let me start by saying I HAVE NEW SNEAKERS. MOON: Yay! Did you pick a new style? JENN: Nope, stuck with the Brooks Ravennas. MOON: Did you try anything new? JENN: I haven’t experienced any knee or hip pain with them – at least not, as far as I can tell, because of them – so I’m keeping ’em for now. I will detail the wonder of their speedy and fiscally responsible arrival later this week, but let me just say now that they are PURPLE with NEON YELLOW LACES. Magnificent. Why be staid we you can be...

The Fairest Week In Review: 3/11

JENN: First things first: I must apologize for the slow blog week previous. Things got a little hectic and I fell down on the job. But as Rafiki so wisely says: What does it matter? It’s in the past! So I soldier on. MOON: I’m sure your adoring fans were on the edge of their seats. All is well, here you are! JENN: Did you run at all this week? MOON: Almost every day! JENN: Awesome! Any particularly noteworthy incidents? MOON: I ran with Christian twice, with Liz once! I couldn’t ask for better company (with the exception of...

The Fairest Week In Review: 3/04

JENN: So, the big news of the week, runDisney-wise, was that there is a new half marathon at Disneyland themed to – wait for it – The Avengers. Your thoughts? MOON: I did laugh out loud when I got that email in my inbox. And no, I haven’t seen the movie. JENN: Me neither. I… don’t care. Like at all. I have no desire to run this race. Unless runDisney wants to pay for it. I’ll be over here holding my breath. MOON: Hm. I’d rather do ANYTHING else in CA, thank you very much. JENN: But a lot of people are into...
