In Which Jenn & Pat Are Frozen With Fear At The Haunted Mansion

The trip report proper is over, but we’re not done yet – I’ve still got lots of thoughts, including food reviews and photos! You can see all the posts in this report here. Onward! It was Pat who spotted the PhotoPass photographer, not me. I blazed right past her in my quest to ride the Haunted Mansion, but he saw and asked if I wanted to stop on the way out. Post doom-buggy exit, we pulled off to the side of the path, just pass the pet cemetery. The mini photo shoot seemed unremarkable. The photographer took the usual pictures –...

In Which Jenn Is Winging Her Race Schedule

SURPRISE! I’m running a half marathon this Saturday! “Dammit, Jenn,” you say, because you are emotionally invested in my life, plans, and overall well-being, “why didn’t I KNOW that?? Haven’t you usually posted your race schedule on the blog by now???” Well, sure, normally I have. But thanks to my new policy of not committing to races earlier than I feel comfortable, my current race schedule is largely… winging it. That and some scheduling conflicts equates a race schedule that presently includes exactly two races: the ZOOMA Annapolis Half on Saturday and the Parks Half in September (which is...
