I’m not going to lie…I’m not adequately prepared for the Wine & Dine Half Marathon in two weeks.
Am I nervous? Not really. I haven’t done any long runs in my training and I’m basically relying on my CrossFit training to take me through. I believe in my training and know that I am strong enough to tackle this race. Would I recommend doing this? Probably not. I’m sure I will experience knee pain and horrible soreness after the race because my body simply not used to pounding the pavement for that long, but that’s ok. I’m not looking to break any records…I’m just looking forward to having a good time!
I’ve been really busy these past few weeks which is why I’ve been a tad quiet around the Internets. I knew that starting a new business was going to take a lot of time, but I think I underestimated just how much. Don’t get me wrong, I’m LOVING every second of it, however some things just have to give while I get projects underway. Everything is a learning curve…including time management!
I’m lucky to have such a great community of running friends out there to keep things rolling as I get settled. I’m hoping you have been enjoying their adventures as much as I have.

Hannah’s monthly Mission to Marathon column gave some useful advice for helping all of us get through the upcoming holiday season. With parties, pies and cold weather in our future, it’s good to go into the season with a game plan. Also this month was the second installment of the new Running Coast to Coast series and Joe shared his experience this year taking on the WDW Marathon and the Dumbo Double Dare Challenge.
To get a taste of what I’ve been doing lately, I recently recapped the Disney Fit Challenge that I competed in last month. It’s full of jumping, weightlifting and giraffe butts?!? Well you’ll just have to check it out to see what I mean 🙂
In these next two weeks leading up to Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend, I’m going to put together all the race information for you along with some info on the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival. I mean that’s the real reason why we’re running right? Guilt free eating around World Showcase! I’ll be down in the World November 6-10 and would love to say hi so let me know if you will be around 🙂
Have a great week!
