|July 7, 2013||Posted by Running at Disney under RAD Reads, RAD Recaps, Weekly Review|
I want to first start by thanking so many of you for your support and encouragement with my new project RAD Living! It has been humbling to hear all of your kind words and it has made me even more motivated to keep moving forward and follow my dreams! I really can’t even begin to express my gratitude and I hope you are enjoying the site so far.
If you haven’t seen it yet, go check out my new sister site to Running at Disney called RAD Living! You can read all about why I started it and where I hope it goes here. Also, I’m shamelessly going to ask you to like my Facebook page and follow me on Twitter…come on, you know you want to!
I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July holiday and got to spend some time relaxing and having fun with family and friends. I know I did! In case you’ve missed it with all the holiday celebrations, here’s what’s been happening on Running at Disney this week:

Now on to some RAD Reads from around the Interwebs!
The Misadventures of a Darwinian Fail encourages us to simply love our bodies in her July #BodyLOVE Summer Challenge.
Journey of a Dreamer shares her struggles with motivation and how she overcomes those slumps.
Just a One Girl Revolution has 5 tips to keep running…very helpful!
Mommy, Run Fast! has some great tips for healthy eating on the go, including some great meal prep recipes.
Eating WDW has dinner at Whispering Canyon Cafe and after seeing all the delicious meats in the never-ending skillet, I think this is a must-do on my next trip!
Eat. Sleep. Run Disney has an amazing review of the Carthay Circle Restaurant and Lounge at Disney California Adventure that makes me SO excited for my upcoming trip!
It is HOT here in the Northeast…seriously HOT! I don’t deal well with exercising in extreme heat, so my fitness has been severely lacking this week. Running and CrossFit have taken a backseat to less intensive exercises like yoga and swimming.
Plus the 4th of July holiday was thrown in there that threw my schedule for a loop (yeah, yeah…excuses, excuses!). Anyway, here’s my full week and to view a complete list of WODs, visit my dailymile page.
Monday: CrossFit: Front Squats & Squat Cleans
Tuesday: CrossFit: Dead Lifts & the Hardest WOD Ever!
Friday: Yoga – 12 min Sun Salutation
Saturday: Yoga – 30 min + Lots of Swimming
Well I did manage to get that KILLER 220# dead lift PR early in the week that was insanely exciting!
This week is looking to be another scorcher, but I guess that is to be expected for July. I need to suck it up and get the work done, I just won’t be pushing it as hard and staying hydrated.
I’m going to be starting my Disneyland trip planning in a new weekly series and I’m looking to all of YOU for help! This will be my first trip out there for Disneyland Half Marathon weekend and I want all the insider tips. Can’t wait to get planning with you expert westcoasters and I hope some of you other newbies will find the series useful as well!
Oh and don’t forget, Tinker Bell Half Marathon Weekend goes on-sale Tuesday…set those alarms!
Have a great week and remember to Be RAD!!
