The Fairest Week In Review: 3/16

Marathon number seven is in the books! Let’s break it down: Sunday | ran 6.27 miles on the treadmill in 1:05 Monday | ran 5.22 miles on the treadmill in 60 minutes Tuesday | walked 3.32 miles in 55 minutes, 70 minute ballet class Wednesday | ran 4.19 miles in 50 minutes Thursday | 60 minute ballet class Went to the Rock ‘n Roll Marathon expo this day.

The clincher, though, was getting a Groupon offering a marathon bib for a mere $100 AND a further discount code that brought the cost down to $80. For a marathon. runDisney this is not. Which of course means that...
