The Fairest Trip Report of All: 11/08/14

It’s time for another trip report! Yay! As I have in the past, I’ll be saving our ADRs for a final food review post, but I’ve decided to sprinkle all the Food & Wine Festival stuff into the report itself. You can see all the entries in this report here. Okay, onward! I woke up much earlier than expected and, upon discovering that Estelle was headed to the Animal Kingdom for rope drop, I dressed quickly and joined her. We picked up a bus and made it to the gate just as they were letting us in – fifteen...

In Which Jenn Is Going To Walt Disney World TOMORROW

Yup, you read that right. I leave for Walt Disney World TOMORROW. Tomorrow morning! I think you all know how that makes me feel. I know it’s 100% trite to say it, but I can scarcely believe this day has finally arrived. I feel like we’ve been planning it for decades. Scores. EONS. But it’s time! It’s finally time! Time for my very first Food and Wine Festival. I’m so excited to eat some griddled Greek cheese and rejoice. Time to poke around Memento Mori and try the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train for myself. (Always assuming it hasn’t burned...

The Fairest Week In Review: 11/04

JENN: Happy post Halloween, everybody! We hope you all had a fantastic holiday, full of candy and tricked out gourds. So M, did you run last week? MOON: Affirmative. Getting “ready” for a 5K. No big deal, but I’ll be running with friends and that always makes me nervous/breathe funny. JENN: Awww. You always seem to run fine with me! You wound up smoking me during the Tinker Bell Half. Of course, I was breathing funny at the time… MOON: Well, I’m used to you! 😛 JENN: Ah, love. ^_^ MOON <3 <3 <3…. 😀 Christian will be running with me and he’s pretty fast....

In Which Jenn Is Obnoxiously Cheerful About the Future

Strap in, everybody – to counter yesterday’s whine-fest, I’m now going to be overwhelmingly positive! In this particular case, I am both Ted AND Veronica. See this sticky note that lives on my work computer? This sticky note houses all the joy of the foreseeable future. The first two – the Tessy convention (5K recap here) and Outer Banks trip – are over, the latter of which bums me out to no end but that’s just a thing I do. I get unnecessarily bummed at the conclusion of trips and nostalgic over things that JUST HAPPENED and I remember...

In Which Jenn Has Crazy runDisney Dreams

I know it’s wildly common for people to have that dream, the night before a race, that they have slept through their alarm. This image also helpfully doubles as a metaphor for running itself. OH GOD NOT GOING FAST ENOUGH (source) I am WAY AHEAD OF YOU. Sure, I’ve had that dream. I’ve had it the night before the race. I’ve also had it three months before the race and sooner, and I’ve had it weirder. Take the Wine & Dine Half. That’s not until November. And yet a couple weeks ago I had my first OH GOD RUNDISNEY...

In Which Jenn Has Her Race Year Completely Planned Out

Well. Perhaps not COMPLETELY planned out. I could maybe toss a couple 5Ks in there if something interesting pops up. But here’s the major race plan skeleton. Item 1: I signed up for the Marine Corps 17.75K at Nicole‘s urging ’cause she was all THE MARINE CORPS MARATHON IS A LOTTERY THIS YEAR WE NEED THIS. See, if you finish the 17.75K, you get guaranteed entry to MCM. So I signed up – and then Nicole got shut out. Gulp. So… going this one alone. It’s on April 12, so SOON! Wish me luck. Or, as we say instead...

The Fairest Week In Review: 3/04

JENN: So, the big news of the week, runDisney-wise, was that there is a new half marathon at Disneyland themed to – wait for it – The Avengers. Your thoughts? MOON: I did laugh out loud when I got that email in my inbox. And no, I haven’t seen the movie. JENN: Me neither. I… don’t care. Like at all. I have no desire to run this race. Unless runDisney wants to pay for it. I’ll be over here holding my breath. MOON: Hm. I’d rather do ANYTHING else in CA, thank you very much. JENN: But a lot of people are into...

The Fairest Week In Review: 2/25

JENN: Last week we speculated that not running this week might be a thing. Did you? MOON: I did run, but very little. JENN: I did intervals. Slow, terrible intervals. MOON: I am actually in a music slump. JENN: Oh, that invariably sucks. MOON: If I’m not excited about my music then running more than 3 miles becomes dumb. JENN: Agreed! MOON: I had a nice run outside today! The weather was beautiful. When I went it was barely 50 degrees, but I decided to enjoy it as much as I could. JENN: Awesome! MOON: My lungs were ice,...

The Fairest Week In Review: 1/27

JENN:  Sooooo… we’re back. MOON:   So….. We’re back, yeah. JENN: It’s cold here. I want to go back to Disneyland. 🙁 MOON: I want to burrow in a volcano. JENN: That sounds delightful. You have always wanted to go to Hawaii. MOON: I hate adjusting to life after a trip. Especially when the temperature difference is 75 degrees. JENN: Indeed. I’m actually looking at hostel prices in various European countries in the hopes of further delaying the onset of real life. MOON: If you could go to any COLD country right now, where would you go? JENN: Cold?...
