Star Wars Dark Side Weekend: Half Marathon Recap

What a weekend! A word of warning that this may end up getting long depending on how many side rants I end up on as I wrap up today’s race as well as the weekend. You’ve been warned. I went into this morning knowing that a PR (personal record) was not going to be in

Star Wars Dark Side Weekend: 5k Recap

Mark your calendars folks as the strangely unthinkable has happened: I willingly sign up for and participated in a Disney 5k that wasn’t a part of a challenge! It is no secret that I am not the biggest fan of runDisney 5ks mostly because of how easy it is for people to lie about their

My First RunDisney Half Marathon

Be forewarned that I am in incredibly sappy and reflective mood as I sit down to write this post.

Running Dopey: Walt Disney World Marathon 2017

With the elimination of the half marathon on Saturday, I woke up on Sunday ready for a race. True to Josh fashion, I got zero sleep the night before the race and ended up watching Disney movies until it was time to get out of bed. My pre-race nerves are annoying sometimes. 3:30 alarm. 4:00am
