All at Once, Summer Collapses Into Fall

Is it a curse of getting older that times does nothing but fly by? This year has been going by so fast and I honestly can’t tell if it’s a good thing or a bad thing. In just a few hours we kiss July goodbye and welcome the beginning of fall. Now, I’m not sure

Bring on the April Showers

T.S. Eliot says that April is the cruelest month. I’m thinking he had it wrong, March was kind of a bitch. We’ve been starting to get our afternoon rain here in Orlando and it’s been a bit refreshing. I actually really like the rain. Not the monsoons that we’ll be getting every afternoon starting soon,

It Really Is the Little Things

I truly love my followers on here. Thank you for fully calling me out for not posting yesterday! I ended up getting called into work a double so I was at the bar working from 10am until a little after midnight. Normally I write my Tuesday posts starting Monday evening and finishing up on Tuesday

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

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

The Runner’s Art of Listening to Your Body

So I mentioned last week that Erica and I would be heading up to Vermont to run the Mad Marathon in Waitsfield. You may also recall that I didn’t feel all that ready for this particular marathon. My last long run was during the Dark Side races back in April and between dealing with depression

This Seemed Like A Good Idea Last Year

I have been a horrible blogger lately but there has been so much going on! The biggest thing, right now, is that this time next week I’m going to be up north and FINALLY reunited with Erica after over four long months! This has actually been the longest stretch without seeing each other since she

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
