15 Miles to End the Week Before the Disneyland Half Marathon!

It’s Disneyland Half Marathon Week! We are just a few days from all the excitement starting. Before I run at Disneyland, I’ve still got training to do in order to get ready for my ultimate goal…the NYC Marathon. So, let’s look at how my week before this Disneyland Half Marathon Week turned out. Read more ›

2017 Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend Event Guide Highlights

The 2017 Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend is now less than 1 week away! If you’re running the Disneyland 5K race, it’s one week from TODAY! One of the things I didn’t get to do (because I didn’t have time to blog in August) is my traditional look at the highlights for the event guide. To view the guide its entirety, click here. There is so much useful information, it’s kind of hard to select what I should highlight. So, let’s get started. Read more ›

Catching Up with the Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend – The Merchandise

Since I’ve been away from blogging, we’ve received some important information regarding the upcoming 2017 Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend. Since I don’t have much time this evening, I’m going to start off with going over the merchandise. After all, it’s important stuff. In the Disney Parks and Resorts blog, they posted a lot of images for the merchandise. You can read the press release hereRead more ›

Let’s Get Caught Up With My Training

Can you believe August is almost over? It feels like this is my first blog post in forever. The month of August has just been that crazy. There’s not been much (if any) time for blogging. Life has thrown a bunch of curve balls at my and my family in an already busy month. We’ve had the nieces, nephew and brother in law out here from Houston, celebrated my 8 year wedding anniversary, Colton started up in a new day care this week, my wife started as a lead teacher for the first time since Colton’s arrival this week, I had jury duty last week, and an interview for a job that would mean a promotion at work. Also, my wife had her birthday on Monday. Add to that, my Honda Civic had its transmission give me problems leading to a major repair bill. It was such a large bill that it was for more than the value of the car. So, I’ve spent a lot of my last two weeks searching for a new car. On Sunday, we finally got that new car. I’ll share a pic at the close of this post. Read more ›

Back to Double Digits with 14 Weeks to Go Until the NYC Marathon!

There is now less than 14 weeks to go until I take on the 5 Burroughs of the NYC for an epic 26.2 miles. By the time this post goes up, I’ll be running the NYC Marathon in 96 days! Y’all, this is getting real!

Free of illnesses this week, I started off with a run on Wednesday. Tuesday didn’t happen because of lack of sleep. 4:30am isn’t the easiest time to get up in the morning. So, Wednesday it was. Now that my Garmin watch is out for the count, I had to rely on my Nike Plus app on my phone to track the run. I went for 4.08 miles because that’s what the Nike App read at the end of my last run with the Garmin. So, I wanted to be able to compare apples with apples. I decided to keep my run 30, walk 90 seconds run/walk intervals this week. So, let’s see how the run went… Read more ›
