Ready for an Anaheim Adventure

Man oh man, where has the time gone?! I can't believe that it has been over a month since the NYC Marathon. Thank goodness for my lazy nature- it has allowed my knee to heal. Of course, I haven't run any long distances (or really done any running), so I have no idea if my knee problem will flare up again once I do.

I won't bore you with all that I have been up to that has prevented me from running (mainly horse shows and work). But it is time to get back on track because STAR WARS HALF MARATHON is coming up soon! I'm pretty freaking excited for that.

I stole this from somewhere. Don't tell on me.


Somehow, I have to get through the holidays and then I'm going to Disneyland!! Why am I so excited about this when I seem to go to a Disney resort once or twice a year? Well, Anaheim weather is gorgeous in January. Even if it happens to rain, there's very little chance of having a heat wave like one can experience at WDW. Also, I'm going with a couple of friends and making a vacation out of it so that we're not rushing around, trying to do everything in a small window of time. They're doing the 10K and I'm doing the half.

Enchanted 10K at WDW


I'm a wee bit torn that I chose not to do the challenge, because medals and 3 long sleeved women's cut shirts! But I keep reminding myself that I have not enjoyed a single race challenge I have done, which includes Goofy Challenge, Dumbo Double Dare and Glass Slipper Challenge. I had a miserable second race during all of those challenges. It's not like I can't do it, it just has not been fun.

Star Wars Half replaced the Tinkerbell Half, and I loved that race. The course was great and the weather was awesome. I'm really curious about what course they will use.

I need to decide on a costume. Unfortunately, I will most likely go as some some of villainous character because I refuse to wear all white and run as Princess Leia. White just does not look flattering on this body. That also rules out a storm trooper costume.

Darth Vedar? Hmmmmm. Maybe I will just go with some sort of Galaxy/space theme. If anyone has some ideas, please feel free to share.


In other news, my current Netflix obsession is The Walking Dead. Good God. That is a gruesome show, but I just can't stop watching! I always want to know how they are going to survive. The first four seasons are on Netflix and I'm in the middle of season two. Who else is obsessed with this show right now? I swear, Netflix has replaced any and all need for me to attend social functions.

That's all for now. I'll be sure to blog any actual running I decide to do.



  1. So excited you are running the Star Wars race. I'm not sure about a costume, but know you will come up with something. I have to agree that all white is not a good look for any runner! The race challenges are only fun if you take one race super slow. Although I enjoyed both Goofy and Dopey, I seriously doubt I will run those races again.

  2. I'm waiting to see the route too. I can't wait to read all the race reports on this one. I think I saw a picture of a Sparkle Athletic skirt with a space print. Whatever you wear, if you're with good friends, you'll have a good time!


Thanks for reading!
