Sorry I've been AWOL!   The Disney vacation was great.    We did a lot but still managed to relax-yes at Disney we relaxed.    We loved the Beach Club.  It was great to walk right out of the International Gateway and be in your room in 5 minutes!!   Definitely want to go back there.   

So I've been back in the thick of training.   I signed up for the inaugural Rock and Roll Half Marathon in Chicago on August 2nd.   Can't wait, should be pretty fun with all of the bands.  Allergies still suck!   Hope to get outside this weekend for a run.  I'm so sick of the treadmill.   Strength Training is going well too.    

I can't believe it's only 32 weeks until the Goofy Weekend!!!

Almost time for Disney!!

Yes,  it is almost time for Disney!   Not the Goofy Disney.  Just a regular old vacation.  We leave Thursday night and we'll be there through the 17th!   Can't wait.   I'll try and do some blog posts while there and keep you updated.

I've had some good runs lately.  All inside due to allergies.  I had a nice 7 mile run on Saturday.    I joined Team Allears for the Goofy Challenge. is a great resource for Disney if you are not familiar with the site you should definitely check it out.   The founder, Deb Wills is a breast cancer survivor.   Team Allears was formed to help everyone stay motivated with the training and also to raise money for breast cancer research.    This should be a great motivator to help me get my runs in.   I have a good idea to raise money and I'll post it after I get back from vacation.  That's when the real training starts!!!
