March #TrDPhotoADay Challenge

Even though I said in my post last month I wasn’t going to continue with the #TrDPhotoADay in March, I did. My sorority little convinced me because she liked seeing my Disney-themed pictures. So here’s how it went. I think Team runDisney had to be a little more creative this month since no runDisney races were…

Sharks Tooth 10K Training: Week 6

Well March is just about to end and there’s only two weeks left of my training program before I run my first 10K race. This process has gone by so fast compared to my training with the half marathons and 10-miler in the past. It feels like I just started…I guess that could also be…

Sharks Tooth 10K Training: Week 5

This was not a good training week. To start with, it’s a little different than the past few weeks anyways because I’m following a program given to me by a trainer instead of the Nike+ one. The Nike+ training program seemed way to intense for a 10K and I don’t really want to run five days…

Why You Should runDisney

Yes, yes, yes, I’m still on my Disney kick. I was actually inspired to write this post based on a conversation I had with my best friend, Mert, following the Princess Half Marathon. She’s no newbie when it comes to half marathons and had been trying to do the Princess Half for a couple years,…

Sharks Tooth 10K Training: Week 4

Half way there. Wow, it feels weird to say that I’m half way through my training program when it’s only been four weeks. The only other training programs I’ve done have been for my half marathons and those have been 18 weeks. Eight just feels so short. Never the less, I’ve reached the half way…

Spartan Up! Coming to a Bookstore Near You

My friends over at Spartan Race shared some exciting news with me! Joe De Sena, founder and driving force behind the Spartan Races, has a book coming out this May called “Spartan Up!” and I got the inside scoop. There are three life lessons (if not more) you’re going to learn in “Spartan Up!” If you want…

A Sleep Experiment Revisited

Back in December I wrote a post about how I was going to work on becoming a morning person. Well that never happened. The holidays were not the time to try and start a consistent sleep schedule. With parties and events, there was no hope of doing to bed at a reasonable time and getting…

Sharks Tooth 10K Training: Week 3

This was the first week that  I didn’t go into the program knowing I wasn’t going to follow it exactly. This week I planned on sticking to the program and getting in the runs and their full distance. It didn’t happen…at all. The week started out well. I got my three mile run in on…

Review: Collagen Sport Ultimate Recovery & A Giveaway!

The great people at NeoCell gave me a jar of the Collagen Sport Ultimate Recovery dietary supplement powder to try out while training for my half marathon. I was so excited when it came in the mail I wanted to try it right away. I hadn’t gone for a run or done any type of…

Returning to Where it Began

As an annual pass holder to Walt Disney World, I have the perk of signing up for runDisney races before they go on sale to the public. Well with Wine and Dine registration opening on Tuesday, I decided to get a head start and sign up. This will be the third half marathon I run…

Sharks Tooth 10K Training: Weeks 1 & 2

As I mentioned a couple weeks ago, the first week of training for the Sharks Tooth 10K overlapped with my last week of half marathon. I opted to follow the half marathon program (for the most part) but I never did a recap of those training days before I ran the half. It only felt…
