My First Disney Princess Half Marathon

My First EVER Disney Princess Half Marathon

What started as a journey to fitness… continues to be that, but I also accomplished something I NEVER thought I’d do. I ran 13.1 miles. That’s a huge accomplishment, since I never thought I’d ever even run 3 miles. Now, 3 miles feels like a piece of cake.

The most important thing I have learned about
running a half marathon is to be consistent and to…

Another thing that is important for a race is to dress for it.

Dress appropriate for running 13.1 miles, because sometimes certain things will chafe or rub in certain spots. Since this was the Disney Princess Half Marathon it means you get to dress up like a princess. (Or whatever you want to look like.)

Running & Writing in Viva Las Vegas

Devin’s Las Vegas Update:

I remember many years ago on my birthday (January 24th) I woke up to hear the newsman say that it was “the most depressing day”. It wasn’t very enjoyable to hear that. How pessimistic.

Why not instead say it is the most joyous day, because you can make anything of it. It is a new day – full of opportunity.

haha… end of mini rant.

I just got back from being in Florida for a few weeks. It was a nice break from the cold weather and such. And Johan really enjoyed Disney. No one does themes and fun like Disney. Which reminds me, did you know Disney had been let go from his job at a newspaper because the editor said he lacked inspiration. Yes, the editor actually said that. Isn’t that bologna. haha.

But yes, How have you all been? Continue reading “Have Happiness…”
