The Quarter Marathon: Wine & Dine 2015

The Quarter Marathon: Wine & Dine 2015

Ok, people are angry about the Wine & Dine race being cut in half. Understandable, if this were your first half and you were really looking forward to running 13.1 Official, Race Sanctioned Miles.  It’s also tough to justify a weather delay when there ends up being no weather per say, but honestly after the … Continue reading

Wine & Dine Countdown: After Party

Wine & Dine Countdown: After Party

The after party is a great idea. You get Epcot shut down to general admission and it’s a special, hard ticket event and you just park your ass on Soarin’ and stay on til the park closes. In theory, this is wonderful and in reality you can indeed do this on Soarin’. Thing is, the … Continue reading

I can run! I can run! (Kinda)

I can run! I can run! (Kinda)

Yesterday was another successful run in the sense that I went outside, did all 4 miles without sitting down and gasping for air and did all of them at the recommended pace. It was technically a rest day and technically the next training day in the schedule was speed work but speed work with actual … Continue reading

Wine & Dine Race Recap

Wine & Dine Race Recap

Disclaimer: I totally paid for this trip myself despite my efforts to get runDisney and/or New Balance to pay for me. I attended no meet-up, and not because I didn’t tweet runDisney that they should invite me to the party since I was in Epcot anyway. @runDisney no really I'm giving you like 15 minutes … Continue reading

Under the Boardwalk: Boardwalk Inn

Under the Boardwalk: Boardwalk Inn

Over the Wine & Dine weekend I stayed at the Boardwalk Inn in Disney World. This is hands down my favorite Disney hotel. There was much walking to Epcot, to Beaches & Cream at the Beach Club, and general sitting around people watching. The Boardwalk also has its own really tasty bakery and is the … Continue reading

The Best Part of Vacation

The Best Part of Vacation

Of course, the best part of a race vacation is coming home and opening your suitcase to the fermented odor of clothes that have been trapped with your putrid, disgusting running clothes for a few hours. It’s one of those times you feel compelled to put your laundry in the washing machine and perform an … Continue reading

Mere Hours: the Excitement Builds!

Mere Hours: the Excitement Builds!

There are mere hours standing between me a Disney World and now that I’m flying JetBlue I honestly don’t mind the flying part because my vacation starts with Greg Kelly. It’s amazing how television has the power to placate me, especially when it’s NYC local TV so I can watch Good Day New York with … Continue reading

Good thing this 1/2 comes with booze

Good thing this 1/2 comes with booze

I did an 8 miler tonight to get myself back on track training for Dopey. And you know, that whole 1/2 marathon this weekend. AHAHAHAHA. My legs hate me. I’m pretty sure I heard the right one say “fuck you, bitch” on a downhill, how’s that for an episode of Are You Afraid of the … Continue reading

Wine and Dine Time!

Wine and Dine Time!

Once the agonizing pain of the marathon passed, I was all set to start thinking about Wine & Dine. So, basically Monday morning I had the suitcase out and I was ready to pack. Yup. I can almost go down stairs like a normal human being again! Take that, co-workers. There was a certain satisfaction … Continue reading
