Run for the Mountains!

As many of you know, training for Walt Disney's Worlds (runDisney) Princess Half Marathon in February. And while that run is... 160+ days away, I also have a half marathon in October.. sort of a "get off your butt and get moving/lose the baby weight and get in shape the hard way" run.

Today (okay, last night) begins the Jewish year 5773.  Good Yom Tov to those of you celebrating!  And instead of waiting for January to make my New Years Resolution, I like this second chance to restart and really get a grasp on my goals.

With running, that means accepting that it's okay to take time for myself to run or practice yoga.  I'm a better mom, wife, and human when I have my "happy" endorphins!  Plus, being military, that whole running thing is literally required for work, so it has to be a priority.

Plus, it gives us an excuse to visit Disney!

If you've never runDisney, you're missing out.  Well, you're saving money, but you're missing out on a great experience!  The Disney races are very pricey, but that's expected at Disney.  Plus, they're the most fun you'll ever have running!  From 5k to Full marathon (26.2), you run through and around the parks, have entertainment along the way, and meet the characters!
