Doh! The big day. A Disney Half Marathon. And, not only that is was the second race of the Rebel Challenge. The Star Wars 10K + Star Wars Half Marathon = Star Wars Rebel Challenge. 2 races in 2 days. 3 medals. I woke up at the should-still-be-sleeping time of 3:30am. I didn’t do much for costumes. But, I did decide to wear orange. I
Saturday was the first race of the Star Wars Rebel Challenge at Disneyland. It was a 10K, which at this point, is my favorite distance. It’s more challenging than a 5K. But not near as challenging as a half marathon. I still feel fairly new to running. I’ve actually not run many 10K’s and the next day would only be my 3rd half marathon. So,

The 2015 Tinker Bell RunDisney event was a huge milestone for me. It was the first time I finished a half marathon. I wanted to commemorate the weekend by displaying items from the 2 events I participated in – the Neverland 5k & the Tinker Bell Half. I came up with these simple canvases to hang on the wall and I adore them.
This is my third year running at the Garlic Fest in North Plains, however this was my first time taking part in the 10k. I sometimes like doing the smaller races that aren’t all hyped up and crazy. But, mainly I chose to do this one because it’s timed. In about 2 months I have to submit an official time to Run Disney for my
I have taken a step back on running this summer and have been concentrating instead on getting in at least 10,000 steps a day according to my fitbit. However, I signed up for my 2nd half marathon. Eek! My goal when I started running was to finish a half marathon. I’m ecstatic that I enjoyed that accomplishment enough to go for it again.
