Weekly Recap 1/6/14 – 1/12/14 & Social Media News

Marathon Training Countdown – 11 Weeks Down, 7 Weeks to Go!

First and foremost, congratulations to everyone who participated in this past weekend’s runDisney races for the WDW Marathon! Whether you did one of the races, or all 4 for the Dopey Challenge, GREAT job!

This week’s workouts went well for the most part. Unfortunately I woke up on Monday with an ear infection. I went to the doctor to get it to feel better, and needed to rest that evening, so I ended up missing my 4 mile run that day. Better safe than sorry, though! I felt better Tuesday, thank goodness, so my Wednesday and Thursday training runs were fine.

Saturday, I woke up to absolutely perfect running weather (I was able to wear a short-sleeved shirt!) and met up with my Team RWB running group to tackle a 15-miler. I went into it with confidence and, though my legs were definitely tired, I finished with a great pace! My running buddy that day definitely kept me motivated the whole way; we spent a lot of the time quoting random one-liners from the movie Top Gun – it was a lot of fun! Plus I wore my 2013 Princess Half Marathon shirt, and one of my Rapunzel bracelets Robert got me for Christmas, for some extra motivation.

  2. Great job on your long run! Those bracelets are super cute! Where did Robert find those? I am now following you on FB and Twitter. I never really understood twitter and therefore it took me Forever to set up an account for our blog. Now I admit it is kind of fun! We are @Fairytalesnfit. Hope you post again before leaving for Tinkerbelle but if not, good luck and have a great time!

    1. Thank you so much! Robert got them at Party City actually - they have a lot of random cute Disney stuff!

      I am definitely still figuring out Twitter. I haven't had one before at all, so I am 100% new to it lol. I am following you on Twitter & Facebook as well :)

      I will be posting Wed and Fri still - costume reveal on Wed!

    2. I know this is kind of random but I also wanted to mention that I don't do Instagram because I don't understand the point. if I want to post a picture, I can just do it on my twitter account just the same. ( I know I may be missing the point here like I have with other social media ventures and in a few years I may understand it or have a need for it, but I'm just sayin). Looking forward to seeing your costume! ( I am actually helping my mom make a Tinkerbelle Costume for the 5K race)

    3. Actually I totally agree with you... I doubt I'll get an Instagram account (though I said the same thing about Twitter too lol).

      Are you going to be at Disneyland this weekend??

  6. I just added Facebook as well (just last week!) and for the same reason - it'll be a lot easier to post pics from PHM that way while we're celebrating that weekend! I can't wait to see all of your pics from Tink. Have fun! - Jess
