RAD Recap for June 8, 2014

I can’t even begin to explain how happy I am that the summer is finally here and that it is warm outside!  I have been in such a great mood and I even went to the gym 5 days this week!  Who am I?!?!  It’s so amazing how the weather can have a big effect on your overall wellbeing.  I’m seriously thinking it’s time to move to warmer climates…I’m not built for this winter business!

Things have been kind of quiet over here on RAD this week because 1. I think runDisney has exhausted their BIG new for a few weeks and 2. I’ve had a TON of things going on outside of my Disney life…shocking, I know.  But it’s all pretty fun, so you should check it out…

First up were some food adventures!  I shared a recipe for some delicious and nutritious Juice Pulp Meatballs that you must try.  I know it sounds gross, but stick with me on this one.

Next, my CSA started this week (remember CSA Saturdays here 2 years ago?!?) and I got some amazing local veggies to try out!

Everything else was CrossFit related…again, shocking!  Last weekend I spent 3 days in CrossFit heaven at the Northeast Regional competition.  That Friday, I was invited by Reebok to tour their facility, meet with some very inspirational athletes and test out some of their products.  It was a dream come true!

So that has been my life outside of Running at Disney, but there as also be some rad stuff going on over here!  Katie shared her transformation story with us and Danielle returned with some great ways to Love Thy Feet!

Coming up this week I have another great transformation story, information on the Star Wars Half Marathon Weekend registration, an all new Kill, Marry, Refurb segment, and John is back with more Anaheim Antics!

Hope you have a great week!!

RAD Recap for April 13, 2013

I’m entering my last week of work and I am full of anxiety and excitement!  There are so many mixed emotions but I finally feel charged for the first time in a long time, yet there is still a lot of work to do.  I’m ready…I think! 🙂

Anxiety

Something I can say I’m very excited about is the new medal that was revealed today for this year’s Wine & Dine Half Marathon!  I absolutely love the design and the fact that it’s a spinner makes it even better! This will be my next runDisney race (so far away!) and I’m really looking forward to celebrating the 5th anniversary of the race and getting some new bling!

If you’re wondering why I’m not running any races until November, well it’s because I signed up for the Disney Fit Challenge in September.  I’ll be in the scaled division and giving it my all!  I’m really excited to try something different and kick up my training.  This weekend I attended a weightlifting clinic where we focused on snatches and clean & jerks.  I’ve always loved clean & jerks, but snatches are tough.  It was great to get more practice in and learn a ton of tips on how to improve form and strength.  I really love lifting heavy things!

Also this week, Reebok came out with some fun superhero inspired versions of their CrossFit Nano 3.0. Even if you don’t do CrossFit, these are a great all around cross-training shoe. They are actually my favorites just for walking around the Disney parks!

Once again I played my favorite monthly game of Kill, Refurb, Marry.  This month’s topic was Animal Kingdom Drinks and I came up with the best idea ever!  What do you think?

And keeping with the culinary theme, I took a trip out to Disney California Adventure and reminisced on one of my favorite breakfast’s of all time at Flo’s V8 Cafe.  However I am now seriously bummed because someone commented they are no longer serving breakfast there…I am devastated 🙁

Since the next few weeks (months actually!) are going to be rather hectic for me, I’m still looking for guest contributors to RAD.  Whether it’s a story idea or a monthly column idea, I want to hear from you!  Email me at sarah@runningatdisney.com if you are interested!

Hope you have a great week!
