Eating for Dopey

Eating for Dopey

Typically, if I’m home in my apartment over the weekend I like to plan out food for the week. Since I really only feed myself, I can make one regular recipe of something and then just portion it off for 5 lunches or 5 dinners to get me through the week. If I’m not home … Continue reading

Marathon Weekend: Dress to Impress (yourself)

Marathon Weekend: Dress to Impress (yourself)

If you’re not even bothering to channel a Disney character for your runDisney race, I don’t know what to tell you aside from calling you a poopy head. I’m not telling you to run in some ridiculous get up that completely limits your range of motion and will result in an incredibly painful post race … Continue reading

Marathon Weekend: Must Stop

Marathon Weekend: Must Stop

So, you may or may not be aware that there are characters along the Disney courses, and you may be asking yourself whether or not you’re going to stop for pictures or forge ahead like a serious runner. One factor that will inevitably affect your decision is how rare the characters are. Generally speaking, I’d … Continue reading

Dopey Simulation Accomplished

I’m a big procrastinator. With one weekend to spare, I finally started AND finished a simulated Dopey run. Mostly I did this so I could see how my knee held up and let’s just say the results left much to be desired. 5 mile run on Thursday – easy breezy beautiful. It was just like … Continue reading

Marathon Weekend: I’d Eat That

Marathon Weekend: I’d Eat That

As we all know, you need to eat to fuel your runs and it’s very important to get proper nutrition after a run (hence why I kinda sorta maybe had Jenn go into Krispy Kreme after a very taxing 5ish mile run). So naturally, I’m all about planning out where I’m going to eat for … Continue reading

WTF Friday: Stupid Runners

WTF Friday: Stupid Runners

Sometimes I look around me and I see people and I think, “What are you, a fucking moron?” I had one of those moments over the weekend when I was in my friend’s car and we were driving on a road. The road was dark. It was desolate. It had no lights on it so … Continue reading

Marathon Weekend: Merry Marathon

Marathon Weekend: Merry Marathon

I typically become somewhat despondent when Christmas is over. As a child, I really enjoyed the holidays and used to cry hysterically when they were done–especially my birthday. Even at a young age, I was keenly aware of my own mortality and what better marker of time passing than a holiday? I’ve gotten to the … Continue reading

Glorified Duct Tape: Does KT Tape Work?

Glorified Duct Tape: Does KT Tape Work?

I see people walking around with KT tape and my first thought is, “douche bag” usually followed by, “asshole” and “sucker.” So I was saying this stuff to myself in the mirror this past Sunday while I tried to follow the video online for taping up an IT band problem. Super awkward. I may have … Continue reading

Mysteries of the Universe

I wonder what it’s like to be one of those people who can just wear shorts for running without giving it an hour of agonizing, grueling thought about chafing and just getting a crotch wedgie. For that matter, I wonder what it’s like to be one of those people who just wear shorts at all.
