I haven’t stopped smiling since I saw the announcement about runDisney’s newest race: Star Wars Half Marathon Weekend presented by Sierra Nevada Corporation.

Injuries suck. Sorry I just had to get that out of the way.

I stay on my feet. Literally. Not only when I’m running races, but when I’m “running” my kids to and from their activities, “running” my household and “running” for work, too.

Forgive me. I’ve been missing in action for the past two weeks. I just moved from one house to another house in the same subdivision. Please note for anyone thinking about doing this just because your move is such a short distance doesn’t mean it’s less work; or that you should do more of it […]
