RAD Reads and Weekly Review: April 28, 2013

Well this week has been the complete antithesis of last week.  I started my week in WDW celebrating Animal Kingdom’s 15th anniversary and spending time with with my best friends.  I even had my first, but certainly NOT last, Lapu Lapu!

Yes travel is hard for me, but it is worth it for these experiences.  Life is too short to miss out on the things that you truly love.  And let’s be honest, that’s why they make anti-anxiety drugs…to help us fly right?? 🙂

While I had a great few days in WDW, I really missed B and my kids.  I mean how could you not miss this?!?

As much as I miss WDW, I’m very happy to be home.  I love my family so much and even when I’m in my favorite place on the planet, I miss them more than anything and can’t wait to get home.

Moving on to less sappy things, I’m sure you’ve seen the big news that came from runDisney this week about Princess Half Marathon Weekend.  In 2014, there will be a new 10K and the Glass Slipper Challenge, along with an awesomely pink Coast-to-Coast medal if you complete both the Tinker Bell and Princess Half Marathons.

Much of this has been covered on RAD this week, but there have been some other really fun things as well!  Check it out:

And let’s not forget about all of the RAD Reads from around the internets…

Running & Fitness Posts
Back at Square Zero makes a delicious looking Marathon Mix.  Great for races and road trips!

Pavement Runner recaps the Lake Sonoma 50.  Simply amazing…

Journey of a Dreamer checks in with her 3-week progress doing Whole 30.  The results are amazing and I can’t wait to give this program a try.

The Sweet Life talks about running out of a rut…my constant struggle.

Disney Posts
The Disney Food Blog share their top 14 salty-sweet Disney eats.  My all time favorite combo!

Mouse on the Mind and This Happy Place Blog play another game of Kill-Referb-Marry, this time in Animal Kingdom.  Estelle talks attractions, while Melissa talks eats…make sure to check both out!

Gluten Free and Dairy Free in WDW visits Sanaa for a great meal and finds out about some new menu changes.

Eating WDW reports on the new menu at Sanaa later in the week.  I’m very sad that the short ribs are now gone 🙁

Weekly Review
Well it’s been a lackluster week in the world of fitness, but I got at least one KILLER WOD in, so I’m happy with that.  Here are my lackluster workouts for the week and to view a complete list of WODs, visit my dailymile page.

Sunday: Rest
Monday: 3 mile walk around Epcot
Tuesday: 2 mile walk around DHS
Wednesday: CrossFit: Total Insanity!
Thursday: Unplanned rest dues to the Yankee Game
Friday: Rest
Saturday: Rest

Clearly I need to get my ass in gear for the Long Branch Half Marathon I’m running next weekend.  I’m really excited for this race because not only is it a flat, fast course, but the finish line is right where B & I got married…super cool!  Knowing that he’ll be at the finish line will get me through the race…looking forward to that photo.  We will surely look very different from our wedding day 😉

The goal for this week is 3 days of CrossFit, 1 short run and then the half marathon on Sunday.  Let’s do this!!

Do you prefer to travel or stay at home?
