The Fairest Week In Review: 12/24


JENN: Merry Christmas Eve! And on that note: injury update! You first. How’s the hip?

MOON: I think it’s safe to say I’m good to go. I’ve run 3-4 times this week? I guess I won’t know if it’s completely good until I do a looooong run, but I figure it will take me enough time to build back up that it’ll probably be fine by that point anyway.

JENN: Hey, if there’s no pain so far, you’re in good shape!

MOON: What about you?

JENN: Good, but also bad. The bad news is that I’ve decided to take the whole week off if an effort to heal my Achilles fully and completely. :/ This is bad because I hate not exercising and I have a marathon in less than a month, so the timing is not ideal.

The good news is that so far it seems to be working. As long as I stick to my guns and DO NOT give in to the temptation to run again prematurely, I think I’ll be a-okay.

MOON: It sounds like a good plan!

JENN: I’ll do some short runs after Christmas, and then some gentle medium runs the week after, and then WDW MARATHON TIME!


JENN: My finest thirtieth birthday present to myself.

MOON: It is definitely a well-suited gift.

JENN: Also well-suited? The roundup:

Darlin’ Rae ponders the reality of run streaking.
Pink Elephant on Parade has tips on cramming all your Dopey needs into a single carryon.
Mom’s Magical Miles discovers the joys of Tom Sawyer Island. (Which is more than can be said for me. I’ll try again someday…)
The Main Street Gazette soaks in the holiday ambiance at Disney Springs.

Speaking of which: I want to end this post with a smattering of photos of the Osborne Lights. Farewell, dear friends. It was my pleasure to view you – and even run through you – on multiple wonderful occasions. Here’s hoping you reappear elsewhere on property.
