The First Photos: Walt Disney World, 2008 – 2012

Having finished up my Last Photos series for the time being, let’s take a look at the First Photos of my Disney albums. Because are not first photos just as telling?

The Sharks of WDW: Toy Story Midway Mania

Have I ever mentioned my favorite animal here? Well, it’s the humble shark. Because sharks are AWESOME. So whenever I see them in WDW, I combine two loves in one place and become super excited.

Basically the best thing ever? Good. We can talk about running now. Moon, take it away! MOON: This is relevant! About a month ago my old roommate informs me over dinner, “Did you know that long-distance running is supposedly worse for you than not exercising at all?” We frequently joke with each other over our extremely dichotomous lifestyles.

The Fairest Week In Review: 12/02

JENN: Did you sneak in any training this week? MOON: I did! Had some time off with Christian and we ran together a few times. JENN: Awesome! MOON: What about you? How’s the foot? JENN: Eh. It’s better. I do feel it’s making progress. I managed a three mile walk at a NON snail’s pace on Saturday, but I had to stop there because it was starting to feel a little weird and I didn’t want to make things worse. I’m going to work more walks (and maybe the elliptical? Anyone like the elliptical?) into this week, then on Friday I leave for...
