Happy Friday: If You Have Time To Walk, Pan, You Have Time To Do Push-Ups

This joke is not funny. I know this. But I chose it for this week’s Happy Friday all the same, and here’s why: the green army man who is always on the hill around mile 20 of the WDW Marathon. In 2016, he yelled at a runner dressed at Tink, “Didn’t I tell you you could never, never land?!” and for some reason, in my mile-20-of-a-marathon stupor, I found this UPROARIOUSLY HILARIOUS. In loving memory: What marathon madness has made you laugh uproariously for no real reason? Don’t forget, you can follow FRoA on Twitter @fairestrunofall and on Instagram @fairestrunofall.

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: Reviewing Some Of The World’s Sushi

Last post of the mini trip report! I’m covering my quick weekend trip for the WDW Marathon. To read all the posts in this report,click here. And now for the most interesting part of any trip report: a food review. My boyfriend is not a sushi fan, so I don’t end up eating it very often in normal life. Throw me into a solo trip, however, and it’s all sushi all the time! (See exhibit A.) So for my WDW Marathon Weekend Mini-Trip, I had sushi for lunch both days. It was… it was kind of disappointing, actually. First...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: 1/10

Mini trip report time! I’m covering my quick weekend trip for the WDW Marathon. To read all the posts in this report, click here. I arrived back at Pop just after noon, which gave me a little under an hour to do my shower thing and get out per the late check out rules. I ate a couple snacks, cleaned myself off, did some last minute packing, and headed out. Disney doesn’t require in-person check out unless you need to adjust your bill or something, but I still needed to swing by the front desk: my Magical Express ticket...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: The WDW Marathon

Mini trip report time! I’m covering my quick weekend trip for the WDW Marathon. To read all the posts in this report, click here. Did I dream it? Did I dream that I dreamed it? In either case, I sat bolt upright in bed. Had I slept through my alarm and missed the WDW Marathon??? 2:48am. Whew! Also: damn. Never gonna get those 12 minutes back, not the way they could’ve been. Ah well. Better than the alternative, no question. At 3am, my phone alarm went off. I sat up and turned it off along with the other two...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: 1/09

And now for the Briefest Trip Report Of All! I began my whirlwind marathon weekend with a 7am flight. The airport was uncharacteristically empty, and since I didn’t need to check any bags I waltzed through security and had a Jamba Juice smoothie in hand in short order. My flight took off early, but landed half an hour late due to a brand new experience for me: two go-arounds. Conditions in the Orlando morning were foggy and it wasn’t until attempt #3 that we managed to land. (I assume instrument landings are for special occasions only.) I wasn’t particularly...

In Which Jenn Knows Which Miles Are REALLY Magic

I have made a poor show of things – I haven’t written up anything about my marathon trip. I will. I promise I will. Soon! In the meantime, I just want to say this: Flying down, grabbing your bib, running the race, flying home? TOTALLY WORTH IT. They say every mile is magic. This is a lie. Miles 15 – 21 blow chunks. But miles 22 – 26 are everything. Tune in later this week for some actual, legitimate recapping! Don’t forget, you can follow FRoA on Twitter @fairestrunofall and on Instagram @fairestrunofall.
