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...

The Coldest Winter Jenn Ever Spent

Hi there! Just Jenn here today. Guess where I spent the last week running? But Mr. Twain, if you meant it literally you should’ve SAID. That’s right – high above San Francisco! I was there for a business trip, and my hotel’s gym was on the top floor. It was certainly quite the novelty! And as a bonus, the treadmills were the fancy type with the monitors attached. Bonus: my hotel room featured a scenic view of the Nike store. So that was fun. As for San Francisco itself, my feelings on the city can be summed up at...

The Blog That Almost Was

When we first set out upon this great runDisney endeavor, the first step was deciding upon a name. Many ideas were batted about, some punnier than others, but we wanted to highlight the one that almost made it. Jenn sent Moon an email with the below video, a clip from Disney’s The Wind in the Willows. “How about We’re Merrily Merrily Merrily Merrily Merrily On Our Way to Nowhere in Particular?” Jenn suggested. “I love it!” said Moon. “Would you have gotten the reference if I hadn’t sent the video?” said Jenn. “No,” said Moon. And so it was...

The Great Margarita Caper

JENN: So today I would like to talk about the Great Cucumber Margarita Caper, Or; Drinking 1/12 of the Way Around the World. MOON: You mean drinking our way INTO Mexico and then I’m drunk? JENN: Well, technically we drank IN Mexico, and then out of Mexico. But everywhere we went, we took Mexico with us. MOON: We drank outside of Mexico? JENN: Our initial idea, you see, was to engage in the traditional Drinking Around the World. Not too quickly, and sharing drinks, of course. We took our drink with us. MOON: Well, I know the plan was...

The Fairest Week in Review: 7/15

.JENN: Are you done with your running for the week? MOON: Yes! Well, as long as Sunday is the first day of the new week, that is. JENN: I consider it to be so. In this way dailymile and I differ, but I just mentally make adjustments. How was it for you, running-wise? MOON: I experimented with my diet and speed. It went pretty well, although my ankle was bothering me. How was yours? JENN: Surprisingly good! I shaved two minutes off my 13.1 mile record, and then I did the same two days later. I’ve started adding a...

In Which We Recap the 2013 Princess Half Marathon

When we last left Jenn and Moon, they had just finished talking over their time at the Fit for a Princess Expo. Ready for the race recap proper? Let’s dive in… JENN: I don’t know about you, but I didn’t sleep super well the night before the Princess Half Marathon. I did that annoying thing I always do when I know it’s imperative that I get up a certain time: a) I dream that I missed the alarm and b) I wake up every hour or so to check. MOON: Yes, I would agree that it was a rough...

In Which We Discuss the 2013 Fit for a Princess Expo

Our runDisney obsession began with the – wait for it – MAGICAL adventure that was the 2013 Princess Half Marathon. And because we can’t relive it enough, we wanted to talk about the experience. We’ll be more timely about the next one, we promise! JENN: You ready to talk Princess Half Marathon 2013? MOON: Oui oui! JENN: Let’s start by talking Expo.

Usually it’s in...

In Which We Answer the Questions You Never Asked

Since we’re new around these here internet parts, we thought it would be good to tell you more about us. Yes, we mean you, specifically. In the interest of full disclosure, we should note that we ganked this survey from Katherine over at Food Fitness Fantasy. Maybe she won’t notice it’s gone? JENN: Ready for some survey madness? MOON: Yesssss. JENN: Okay, first question! Year you ran your first mile without walking: Um… did we run a full mile in elementary school? Was the Turkey Trot more than a mile? [We went to elementary school together. And middle. And...

The Fairest Run(ners) of All

Once upon a time, a Disney park-obsessed runner strong-armed her best friend into running Walt Disney World’s Princess Half Marathon. They ran the whole thing together and crossed the finish line holding hands. It was such an amazing experience that they determined that they simply HAD to max out their runDisney experience by hitting every single race. And then they thought, hey, what better way to motivate and celebrate than a blog about those exploits? Thus was born The Fairest Run of All, because these devoted friends love a good pun. Join Jenn and Moon on their magical tour...
