Twenty One Days Until Dumbo Double Dare

Holy cow, I can't believe there's only 3 weeks until I leave for Dumbo Double Dare! It seemed like an event waaaaaay off in the future and now suddenly it's almost here!

I wish I could say I've been a rock star in my training, but that would be a lie. I spent two weekends in a row on vacation drinking beaucoup vino, one of which was in Las Vegas.

There's champagne in those coffee cups. Great way to smuggle booze into a restaurant.

Anyhoo, I dragged my sorry ass back onto the wagon and ran the mountain on Tuesday night. It was not pretty.

I'm pretty sure I was sweating out booze. Regardless, I did a very sweaty 5.5 miles. When I was done, I was feeling pretty good about it, though.

The sunset was gorgeous.

I planned on doing it again last night. I got dressed, filled up my camelbak, got in my car and...dead battery. C'est la vie, right?

I'm planning on doing a pretty long run tomorrow- at least 10 miles. I'm away at a horse show next weekend so I need to cram in as many training runs as possible before heading off to my favorite of all Disney race weekends.

I also need to get my costumes figured out, too. I haven't quite decided how much effort I want to put in. We'll see how that shakes out.

Who else is super stoked about Disneyland Half Weekend? Woot!


  1. Running after boozing is not fun. The coffee cup disguise is interesting, though.

    I'm on the fence about the race weekend. I had a whole group of friends who were doing their first half and two have dropped out. Two more keep complaining about the training. Sigh. I love them but I'm missing my regular running friends who just do it. There are also some logistical race day things I have to figure out. It's starting to become more stressful and less fun. I think it'll be okay when the weekend finally comes around.

    1. I'm always running around frantically trying to get things organized, so I can't enjoy my trips/races until I'm finally at the airport. Hopefully, I'll run into you!

  2. Disneyland is overwhelming me!!
    Good news, I practiced my drinking training. Not so sure it went so well. I'll try again next week.

    1. Ha! Good job on your drinking training! I'm working on my drinking taper. ;)

  3. Get to work on your costume, dammit!! LESS THAN TWO WEEKS LEFT!!!!!

    You always look so darn cute when you run. I'm jealous. It's the hair. You have such great hair. Lucky!

    1. Thank you! My hair is pretty much a mess all of the time. My costumes are simple. Hopefully, my Team Sparkle gear will arrive in time!
