RAD Recap for February 16, 2014

Are you all in a candy coma from Valentine’s Day?  I’m in a bit of a cupcake coma and I think it’s about time for a detox.  It’s just so hard to resist when you have an amazing cupcake place in town…plus they won Cupcake Wars!

This has been a week of recovery and reflection.  I know I’ve hinted that there has been a lot going on with me and I finally decided to open up about it on RAD Living today….the good and the bad.  Thank you to everyone for your love and support…I’m humbled and forever grateful.

Looking ahead, I am excited about Princess Half Marathon Weekend coming up!  It is the perfect time to get away for some fun and I’m even more excited that B is coming with me.  We both need to escape the cold weather and all of the heartache of the past few weeks…what better place to do that then at Walt Disney World?!

This week on RAD began with a look at the Dopey Challenge by Sparkly Runner Sarah, who also has some great tips on how to run these races smart!

Registration opened this week for the 2014 Twilight Zone Tower of Terror 10-Miler in October.  It looks like the races haven’t reached 50% capacity yet, so there is still time to get in!

The second Wednesday of the month means it’s time for another fun game of Kill, Refurb, Marry!  This month’s theme was Live Musicals in the Parks.  I’d love to hear what your picks would be!

And finally, I put together all of the info you will need to navigate Princess Half Marathon Weekend, including corral assignments, course maps, transportations times…you name it!  These race weekends can get overwhelming, so I hope having everything in one place helps!  Who will be picking up these beauties next weekend?!?

And please don’t forget…If you see me around next weekend, STOP ME AND SAY HI!  One of my favorite things about race weekends is getting to meet so many new people and put faces to the names I have been chatting with online for so long.  Tweet me, send me a Facebook message, or reach out on Instagram.  I will be all over the World and would love to meet up!

Have a great week and thank you again to everyone for your love and support…I’ll never be able to express how much this has all meant to me and my family 🙂

Kill, Refurb, Marry: Live Musicals in the Parks

Kill-Marry-RefurbThis month’s theme for Kill, Refurb, Marry is Live Musicals in the Parks.  I’m really not a fan of live shows.  I’m not quite sure what I don’t like exactly, but I think I just enjoy “moving” attractions more and would rather spend my time there.  But even though they aren’t my favorite, I do appreciate them and try to see each show at least once.  You have to try everything at least once, right?? Ok so here are my picks…

Kill – The American Idol Experience

Ok, this one I haven’t actually seen.  I do NOT enjoy American Idol, so I can’t imagine spending my precious park time watching a live version.  The location is prime real estate for something awesome to lived up the Studios…so come on Disney, AI is totally past it’s prime!

Refurb – Beauty and the Beast – Live On Stage

This might not be a fair assessment since I haven’t actually seen this show, but the reasons why I haven’t seen it are why I feel it needs a refurb.  Basically it’s the uncomfortable looking bleacher seats and the outdoor venue that keep me away.  Sitting on hot metal doesn’t seem like a comfortable way to spend an afternoon.  Also, I think since I’ve seen the full Broadway production of Beauty and the Beast, I don’t really feel the need to see this abbreviated version.  However if they moved it to an indoor venue (say the AI theater!) then maybe I would be more inclined to see it.

Marry – Finding Nemo – The Musical

Even though I feel this show is a bit long, it is gorgeous.  The puppetry, the music, the sets…it all works so perfectly together.  I love the story of Finding Nemo…the theme is sweet and the humor is wonderful.  To see it live on stage with those larger than life puppets is just amazing.  I have to say that crush is probably my favorite 🙂
