We’re a few hours away from the official kick off to the runDisney Princess Half Marathon weekend – I’m so excited, I could burst!  At this time last year I was moping about, quite upset that I couldn’t participate because I was only a few days out from surgery.  This year, I’m running all three […]

Monthly Goals – February 2014 #running #runDisney #training


I didn’t even realize it was almost halfway through the month.  February always seems to fly by – probably because it’s slightly shorter than other months, and because Maddy’s birthday falls on one of the last days.  I really don’t want to come to terms with the thought that I will be the mom to […]

Monthly Goals – January 2014 #DopeyChallenge #runDisney


My blog was pretty much dead for December, all thanks to super bugs in the Orlando area that decided I was an awesome host to thrive in.  The sickies started the week of Thanksgiving, and they never really let go of me.  A few days before I took a 2 week Christmas break, I felt […]
