In Which Jenn Flips Out Over Magic Bands & Makes A Disney Playlist

Is Carol Anne so wisely said in Poltergeist: THEY’RE HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEERE. Do Spanish-speaking families receive a box that says ‘increible’? Hello, precious. Hello. I got home from ballet last night, saw the box on the kitchen counter, and squeaked to such a tremendous degree that my roommate came in to find out what was inside. And then she humored me admirably when I showed her my plastic bracelets. But guys, seriously – I am SO EXCITED because that means MY DAY IS COMING. Twenty-seven days. Twenty-seven days until I am showing my mom around Walt Disney World! And in honor...

Music + Running: When Headphones & Sneakers Do Not Entertain a Happy Marriage

No doubt you’re sick of Jenn prattling on, so for a change of pace, here’s a solo Moon post! Yay! Hey gang! I’m venturing on a new series, here. Hopefully this narrative will get more interesting as we push forward, but bear with me for a bit. But, before I get too preachy, how about revealing what the series actually is. Music and Running Let me preface with the admission that I use the term “running” loosely. I know there are many serious runners for and against listening to music while running. Perhaps we can tackle this debate at...

The Fairest Week in Review: 8/5

JENN:  Recap! How was your workout week? MOON:  I am sad now that most of my running is back indoors, but other than that my week was good! Nothing too big to report. How was yours? JENN: I did okay. I got all my mileage out of the way in an acceptable fashion but didn’t accomplish anything remarka – WAIT A MINUTE. Almost forgot because it was last Monday, but I did 13.1 miles in 2 hours 11 minutes. One minute away from my official goal! Six minutes from my unofficial pie in the sky goal. MOON: Yay! Congratulations!!...

The Fairest Week in Review: 7/29

JENN: Okay, here’s my first report for the week: the running skirt I bought last week was a bust. I tried it on and it fit really comfortably, which should’ve been the first red flag. Since the undershorts weren’t gripping my thighs with deathly force, they naturally rode up as soon as I started to run. MOON: I figured they would probably ride up too much for running. JENN: It’s not a total loss, since it was only fourteen bucks and it’s always useful to have a skirt with undershorts for picnics and other sitting-down endeavors, but as a...

The Fairest Week in Review: 7/22

JENN: Wanna do our weekly? MOON: Sure! JENN: Then let’s hit it! How’d your training go this week? MOON: Rather well, actually. I jogged indoors, outdoors, got through a minor ankle issue, and tried an intense elliptical workout. JENN: Ankle okay now? MOON: It’s getting there. I honestly don’t know what I did to offend it. How was your week? I know you were in San Francisco and weren’t feeling so well… JENN: I had a pretty off week. I got my mileage in, but I never really found a groove. I was tired every time. I’m kinda bummed...
