LOTS of folks will be racing solo. Don't let that be a deterrent!

Although I'm traveling with family, I'm running solo. Once you're out on the course you'll be no different from most! And come, join me, my hubby, and son for the party after! Or maybe just them, as I'm assuming I'll be just about the last to finish the thing. (it's good to have goals, LOL)


Off I go to start weight training. I'm finally convinced that it will help with running. I already know it helps with weight loss and overall fitness, and it will help me LOOK better as I drop the rest of my excess weight. But I never really understood that it can help with running until recently. I'm pretty excited! I haven't done weight training in a LONG time. Cross fingers I don't hurt myself, LOL.

The humidity won't deter me. Running in south Louisiana prepares you for the heat and humidity.

Does anyone need an extra ticket to the Villains Bash? One of my friends bought one, but then decided to to the 10 miler. She can't get her money back for the party ticket. Let me know if you know anyone who needs one.

Well, I did it... I registered for the Tower of Terror 10 miler!!! This will be my first solo trip so I have my fingers crossed that I can get to know some other solo runners before the race that I can hang out with.

Thanks so much! I feel so badly that she could not apply the cost to her race registration.

I have signed up for the ToT 10 Miler. This is my first ever running event. Any advice would be appreciated.

I haven't done this Disney race before, this will be my 1st time. I have done the Wine and Dine Half and Princess Half and Disney races are the best! Have you run races in other places?
