There’s Finally A Magic Band That Matches My Soul

I remember when Walt Disney World first started rolling out Magic Bands. It was the year I moved to Florida and subsequently became a Passholder. Upon completing my sign-up for my pass I was instructed to choose a Magic Band. I was totally opposed to them for no real reason. Part of me didn’t really

2018 Epcot Festival of the Arts; or, I’m Just Going to Eat Everything

I’m so excited that Disney decided to bring back the International Festival of the Arts for another year. More so that they decided to run the event all week rather than just three days… kind of. In 2017 for the inaugural event, Disney only ran the event three days a week- Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

Dopey Challenge 2018 Recap: The 25th Walt Disney World Marathon

There’s a lot to be said about running a marathon. As most know, it’s not my most favorite thing in the world. Erica loves them but I’m perfectly okay with running my half marathons and calling it a day. Yet, the Walt Disney World Marathon holds a special place in my heart because it was

Dopey Challenge 2018 Recap: Half Marathon

If it wasn’t clear from the 5k and 10k recap, it was freezing cold for the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend and Saturday was no exception. I am typically a huge proponent of the “nothing new on race day” rule when it comes to running. This means that you should stick to what you’ve done

Dopey Challenge 2018 Recap: 5k and 10k

Another RunDisney race weekend has come! (Well, it was last weekend but I’m a slacker) As we all know, it is the first and largest race weekend for RunDisney of the year and certainly one of the craziest. The Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend is home to four races and two challenges. Naturally, as I

My Homeowner’s Association Hates the Ocean… Apparently

One thing I’d like the world to know: living life with a homeowner’s association is easily the worst thing in the entire world. The sad part is, I’m in a condo and I hate them, I can only imagine living in an actual house and having to put up with their nonsense. I feel like

Yes Officer, I’m Aware That We Don’t Put Cats In The Dumpster

So I’m definitely going to start this whole thing off with a meme that has been making its way around the Facebook world over the last week and I pretty much love it- not because I (so far) have a problem with 2018, but I like it because the idea gives you a little bit

What Can I Improve This Year?

Well hello there 2018! Ya’ll know I’m not a big fan of the idea of resolutions. I find them to be a fantastic set-up for failure. Especially when people start throwing around the concept of “New Year, New Me!” I hate that. When I first started this blog way back in 2015 I talked about

WDW Marathon Weekend; or, A Tale of Three Dinosaurs

The time has come for another Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend. Specifically, the 25th running of the full marathon, coupled with the 5th anniversary of the Dopey Challenge and (if we’re being realistic) the 20th running of the Half Marathon. Refer to last year’s nonsense for what I mean by that. We attended the expo

My Apology Letter to 2017

Hey there 2017. We’ve come to an end and I feel like I owe you a bit of an apology. You see, 2016 really sucked. Like, hard. I feel like you’ll find very few people who may disagree with that fact. Even the people that loved it, secretly hated everything about it. As a result,
