I know what you mean about running in the heat. I haven't been running nearly as much as I should be....Ed, too.
Our trip is almost here I have a feeling it's going to be amazing!

Running in the heat is awful. I did a race last weekend and although my training was horrible, I have finally learned to trust all of those trainers who say slow down. But I'll talk about it in my update in a minute

I'm sorry I missed your send off. I hope you are having a great time.

I saw on your TR that you are loving AOA. I can't wait to hear all about it.

We are getting close I can't wait to hear about your trip. I'm so jealous that you are going on DCL.

Have a great cruise

I can't wait to hear about the run & the cruise. You are going to have a great trip!
Thanks, I was feeling pretty bad the last fews weeks but am starting to feel better about how far I have come after only starting running a year ago.

I can't wait. I think this trip is going to be awesome

Yay! Welcome back. Thanks for the heads up. I am going to take a break to make so coffee so I can be awake for the start of your TR.

Just wanted to do a quick update before we leave TOMORROW

We are flying to Fort Lauderdale and will board the Oasis on Sat. I can't wait


I just wanted to share what I did this weekend. As most of you know I have been training for the TOT 10 miler. About 13 weeks ago I found out there was going to be a half marathon in my town on Sept. 15.

I would already be training to 11 miles on that exact route for the TOT run, what's another 2.1? Of course my training has been awful due to the heat and I really considered not doing the half. Unfortunately, I had gotten a coworker to sign up and she happens to have a very big mouth. She got two other coworkers to train and every single person in our dept knew about the run I didn't have a choice.

On Sat. I finished my first half marathon
It took me 2:46 which I feel okay with. Sure, I would like to be faster but I think that is pretty darn good for my first one. As soon as I finished I thought about how I could improve when I do it again next year, so I think that is an indication of how good it went.

Despite horrible training, I felt good most of the run. I walked when I needed which wasn't much until mile 8. 8-10 was a little more walking. Miles 10-13.1. were tough and the last .1 was on sand which is horrible to run on.

My hips and knees were a bit sore the next two days but only really noticable when trying to sit or get up. Otherwise though I have to say it felt fantastic. Who would have thought a year ago when doing the Couch to 5k I would be finishing a half a year later? Not me.

I don't have the official photos but have two DH took with my phone.






I'm glad I did it because now I know I can handle the 10 miles.


Anyway that is pretty much it. I have been waking up super early this week. The last few days at 5 and today at 4am. Usually I sleep from 9-6 since I have been so tired. However now I am falling asleep at 11/12 and waking up early. I think my body is already on vacation b/c that is usually how I am on vacation. I hope it doesn't catch up with me on the trip and I sleep through it.


Have a good week everyone!

I can't believe you are already leaving tomorrow!

And a big for finishing your 1st half marathon! That is awesome!

I hope y'all have a safe & wonderful vacation on the cruise & at Disney! Good luck with the ToT race - I'm sure you'll do great! If you do end up seeing me at the Villians Bash, feel free to say "HI!"

Hi everyone

We've been back since Sunday and it has been busy, busy, busy around here. I am uploading my pictures now and didn't take many. I think I took about 500-600 pictures. I had more on our 3 night Disney Dream cruise. I had a more laid back approach this time and even DH commented about it. He said he almost wished I would start taking more pictures

The cruise was great Great ship, Royal Caribbean was fantastic and we had beautiful weather while in the ports.

Our day at Disney was kind of . I thought the TOT run was disappointing and after my experience that night it kind of smashed my motivation to run and plan Disney trips. I think it will take a few days to mentally recover from it.

I wasn't going to share many cruise pictures since they aren't Disney, but I booked the Oasis due to a TR on the Allure on the DCL cruise board so why not?

I get to submit my vacation request at work this week, but I don't think they get approved for another two weeks. Hopefully all will go well and I can resume our planning for our Feb trip. I took a peak at my ADRs and wow, do they need to be reworked
