Quattro to go!

It’s here. It’s seriously here. Tomorrow morning I go to the mother ship, the place where all the magic started and where Disney himself walked the same ground I will. Somewhere out there, pigs are flying and hell has frozen over because I am going to Disney to run 13.1 miles and I couldn’t be … Continue reading

Mouse Ears Sold Separately

After a 3 mile run, I decided to get my craft on and make a Minnie Mouse headband to wear in Disneyland. I noticed a lot of people like dressing as Minnie for the Disney races (and some non-Disney races). The beauty of doing this is you can make the bow and attach it to … Continue reading

Mother Knows Best

Disneyland is fast approaching so naturally I have to heed Scar’s advice to be prepared. Walt Disney World is a no brainer for me, my sister and I go 1-2 times a year pretty regularly and we have our routine down cold. This trip is different though: it’s my first big race, first Disney race, … Continue reading

Movie Night Throwdown: Snow v. Wendy

Tonight’s feature was Snow White, a Disney character who is right up there with the Mouse himself as the founder of the Disney empire as Disney’s first full length, feature animated film. Snow White, despite keeping house for the dwarfs in a manner that superficially looks a lot like Wendy’s shenanigans in Neverland is actually … Continue reading

New Music to Run to

Before you ask, I don’t know a word of Korean and when a friend offered to translate I said “No, let’s keep the mystery alive.” It’s been stuck in my head ever since and I’ve added it to my running playlist.

Ode to the Sparkletech

Sparkleskirts.com Leah Powell is without a doubt a hero in my book and I’m greatly looking forward to actually meeting her at the Disneyland 1/2 marathon. Why? Because she is the ingenious mind behind the Sparkletech skirt, that’s why. This skirt single handedly got me through the summer and the only reason I am considering … Continue reading

Movie Night

There’s no better way to prepare for a Disney trip than a Disney movie marathon. In this particular case, I like to enjoy a Disney film in the evenings and tonight’s selection was Peter Pan since we’re going to Disneyland in 9 days and the classics just seemed a given. I always liked the movie … Continue reading

Know when to Fold ’em.

The flip side of knowing when to hold them is knowing when to fold them, knowing when to walk away and when to run. Since this advice has appeared multiple times in the literature on running, I’m assuming that the people who partake in this activity often like to continue on despite pain. I am … Continue reading

A Treatise on Tulle

I always see people running in tutus so I decided to try and fashion one myself inspired by Cinderella since those were the only colors I could get at Joann’s this week. I had a coupon, I had free time, so why not? Now, for those of you who are thinking about getting down and … Continue reading

This day is turning out OK

So I started off this morning hot gluing my finger instead of the fabric. I started shaking my finger but guess what? Glue kind of sticks to stuff. Like your skin. This isn’t the first time I’ve burned myself in the process of crafting one of my works of art. Typically, I hot glue things … Continue reading
