In Which Jenn Has A runDisney Chip Time Warning

Oh, shoot, guys, I just remembered something important for runDisney enthusiasts that I can’t believe I forgot to notate it in my WDW Half recap! So as I mentioned there, I dropped back to corral F to run the half with Erika. I’ve observed that the farther back your corral, the more waves there are, and in this particular case we were just cut out of F’s first wave. Two volunteers came across with the tape directly in front of us. A minor bummer, to be sure, but not the end of the world. And it did mean we’d be...

In Which Jenn Can runDisney Photo Dump Again, Hooray!

Despite my better fiscal judgment, I have an WDW Annual Pass once again, and you know what that means, kids – I CAN ACCESS MY RUNDISNEY PHOTOPASS RACE PHOTOS FOR FREE! And then I can make you look at them. Wait, no, don’t click away! Don’t you want to read my commentary??? It’s pithy and judiciously deployed, I promise!

We dressed and wandered out into the night, climbing onto a bus without difficulty. We took up the long march to...

The Fairest Week In Review: 1/11

If I were asked to pick a single word to describe the WDW Marathon, I would go with this: AGAIN! AGAIN! AGAIN! All of which is to say that I had a great weekend, weather notwithstanding, and can’t wait to get started on my trip report and race recap! Before we get there, some housekeeping in the form of last week’s workouts: Sunday | rest Monday | ran 7.15 miles on the treadmill in 1:15 Tuesday | 70 minute ballet class Wednesday | ran 5.26 miles on the treadmill in 60 minutes; walked 3.22 miles outside in 55 minutes Normally...

The Fairest Trip Report Of All: The WDW Half Marathon

Is it trip report time again already? Yay! I’ll be looking back at my Dopey trip at the beginning of January, with special separate posts for each race and some food experiences depending on how much I have to say about them. You can read all the posts in this particular trip report here. Ready? Let’s go! I’m not gonna lie, guys – throughout the entire Dopey Challenge, my morale was never lower than right before the half marathon. Prior to the 5K and 10K, I could think to myself, “Well, at least this will be over quickly.” A little...
