I Dumbo Double Dare You

I Dumbo Double Dare You

It’s official, I’m heading back to Anaheim to run the Dumbo Double Dare in Disneyland this September. I signed up as an Annual Passholder before it sold out to Annual Passholders (about 25 minutes after it opened). I thought it wouldn’t sell out that quickly but boy oh boy was I wrong!This time, I’m doing … Continue reading

Princess Half Marathon 2015

Princess Half Marathon 2015

For the first time in forever, I’m trying a new runDisney race, the Princess Half Marathon. The race is merely 2 weeks away, kind of, I mean really like 3 but we’re rounding so we naturally round down.

BIG Things

BIG Things

There are some big things happening this week. First, I have my first ever erg sprints this weekend. I’m pretty excited for them, actually, since I’ll be in 3 events–2 as a rower and 1 as a coxswain.

All my bags are packed

I’m all packed up for Dopey! I’ve got all the basics that I’ll need and then some. Here’s to hoping the next time you hear from me it’ll be to say I left that dwarf bloody and beaten outside Epcot again. We meet again, my tiny nemesis.

Dopey Challenge: Four Costumes

Dopey Challenge: Four Costumes

I uh… I have slacked off in the costume department. Once upon a time, I sewed together original costumes with intricate details. I painted my own f–king fabric in glow in the dark paint, I painstakingly glued ribbon to a crinoline. I did this for so many races. And then I got a full time … Continue reading
