A Lovely Giveaway From Whosits & Whatsits

Love is in the air this Valentine’s Day!  Since I love all of my RAD readers so much, I wanted to thank you for all of your love and support with a fun giveaway from Whosits and Whatsits!

When I first went on the Whosits and Whatsits website, I immediately wanted EVERYTHING.  I’m a huge Disneynerd, but I’m not a fan of wearing things that scream Disney.  All of the items here are very stylish with a subtle nod to many Disney favorites.  From shirts, sweatshirts, jewelry and hats, there is something for everyone.




By far my favorite item is the Neverland Beanie!


Since I live in the Northeast, you won’t find me outside without a beanie on my heard from November to March.  This hat is SO CUTE!!  It’s stylish and warm.  I’ve gotten so many compliments on it and no one seems to get the “feather in the cap” reference until I point it out.  Then they love it even more!

This is my new favorite cold weather accessory and I’m pretty sure it will be yours too!  It would even be great for your next runDisney race costume!!  Good luck 🙂

RAD Living Header_FinalI 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.

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:

And here’s what’s new over on RAD Living:

Now on to some RAD Reads from around the Interwebs!

Running & Fitness Posts
Marc Bigbie recaps his first Ultra 50K (whoa!) and also shares some of the lessons learned from his first Ultra Marathon.

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.

Disney Posts
Mouse on the Mind finishes the fun Imagineering Awesome series with a great post by Katherine on her dream attraction: The Death Star Trench Run.  Yes!  

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!

Da Mouse previews the MagicBands Merchandise...I’m really on the fence about all of this.  They also have a photo update of the Grand Floridian DVC property, which makes me much more excited.

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!

Weekly Review
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.

Sunrise Yoga

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.

Sunday: Rest
Monday: CrossFit: Front Squats & Squat Cleans
Tuesday: CrossFit: Dead Lifts & the Hardest WOD Ever!
Wednesday: Rest
Thursday: Rest
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!

Dead Lift

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!!
