Dopey Challenge 2015: Baby, it’s hot outside

Dopey Challenge 2015: Baby, it’s hot outside

Let’s be realistic, the weather forecast looks great for spending some vacation time in Florida and hanging out by the pool. The weather forecast looks less optimistic if you were planning on running, say, a marathon. Currently, Orlando’s forecast has highs in the 80s and lows in the 60s in the morning. “Oh, that’s not … Continue reading

It’s time

Hopefully, by this time tomorrow I will in the air, getting ready to make my initial descent into the Orlando area. It’ll be -10 with the windchill in the morning. A co-worker asked me if I’ll be able to walk in, to which I responded, “spent two winters in Minneapolis. I’m good.” My bags are … Continue reading

Let’s Pack a Ton of Crap

Let’s Pack a Ton of Crap

I hate packing when I have a lot of stuff and nowhere to put it all. And I’m one of those people who always freaks out about overhead space because I don’t check bags so it looms over my packing process like Tower of Terror looms over Hollywood Studios, especially when I need this stuff … Continue reading

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

One factor that will inevitably affect your decision is how rare the characters are. Generally speaking, I’d … 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

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

The Marathon Weekend Countdown

So there was the 26.2 Days of Marine Corps (which, FYI, is totally relevant if you’re coming into town for the Nike Women’s 1/2 in April) but now we’re less than 30 days away so bust out your knee socks and running shorts, people, it’s time to countdown to Marathon Weekend! Who can’t wait to … Continue reading

How to not get trampled at the expo

How to not get trampled at the expo

There are four easy things you can do to make your expo experience as painless as possible. FIRST: Decide now that you are not going to buy run Disney merchandise and that you don’t care if you don’t get the random, limited edition tumbler with matching straw and overpriced shoelaces. I’m serious. Once you cut … Continue reading
