Training going well.

It's been a crazy couple of weeks in the Aulen household. Dave and I did the Fox Lake 5k on Saturday 9/12. Dave did great and finished under his required pace for the Disney 5k. He is doing great in the training and I am very proud of him! I finished in a good time as well and felt pretty good. Once again I started out way too fast. 5k's are just not my race I think. Everyone starts out sprinting and I get caught up in that.

This weekend I did a 6 mile run on Saturday and then an 11 mile run on Sunday. I felt great for both. I hope the training continues like this, but I know it won't be so smooth all the time.

We are getting ready for Disney in just 2 weeks and 2 days! I think we will be utterly spent by the end of the three days. We are planning on spending the entire day at the Magic Kingdom on Friday including the Not So Scary Party. Saturday going to the Studios, pick up my race packet and head over to Epcot to sample all of the yummy food and wine! Sunday up very early for the race and then back to Epcot for more food and wine. I am tired just thinking about it!

That's all for now,

Race for the Taste Here I Come!

I'm in week 3 of Goofy training and things are going well. I'm feeling good so far, but there is a long way to go. We had an exciting week last week as we decided to book a last minute trip to Disney World so I can run the last Race for the Taste 10k. I haven't done it before and heck I want that cool medal. Not to mention that we can now go to the Food and Wine festival. Dave is very happy about that! We may go to the Not so Scary Halloween Party as well. It is going to be a very short trip. 3 days in the parks. Pure exhaustion I'm sure!!!

Dave made an awesome music video of the highlights of our May trip. Take a look:

Pretty Cool, huh?

For now,
