2017 was another running year. I ran more virtual events than ever before. I spent my 40th birthday run/jog/walking a half marathon at Disneyland. I wore my fitbit, of course. But, I switched my focus from 10,000 steps a day to concentrating on the number of miles I ran. My plantar fasciitis was still a bit of an annoyance. But, it was better than in

2017 Race Recap – Disneyland 10K
The races for this RunDisney weekend started at the before-the-sun hour of 5am. Oy! This meant every day I got up between 3:00 and 3:30. Oy, oy, oy! They’re worth it. I’m sure I’ll do it again. The 10K theme was Monsters, Inc – which I liked better than The Incredibles theme for the 5K.

50 State Half Marathon Bucket List
This is me dreaming big. I love to travel. I run. I could really never have too many Runcations. On my bucket list is traveling to all 50 states in the US.

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
2016 Race Recap – Star Wars 10K
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,
2016 Race Recap – Star Wars 5K
I’ve spent the last few days at the Star Wars Half Marathon weekend in Disneyland. This was my second Run Disney event weekend. They sure know how to put on a good event. That has to be one of the reasons their events are so popular.
Running Recap of 2015
I started 2015 as a runner-ish type person with the goal of finishing a half marathon. I surpassed that goal by finishing two. They are definitely personal highlights of 2015.
2015 Race Recap: Rock n Roll Las Vegas Half Marathon
In May, I ran my first half marathon – it was the Tinkerbell at Disneyland. That was an accomplishment I was super proud about. Who knew I could do such a thing? And now I can say I’ve completed two half marathons! Besides a Disney event, the other event calling my name was the Rock n Roll half marathon in Las Vegas. I thought it
