Monday Musings 1/12

OK, I miss Marathon Weekend.  There, I said it.  I know the races are getting crowded and I was extremely cranky last year since I had to walk the whole thing, but I miss being at Disney.  I did watch the Live Stream for a bit yesterday morning, and I've been keeping up with pictures on social media.

Allie's not impressed, but we snuggled while I watched the stream.

I've decided if I can built up to a 10k comfortably, I want to go back to Disney races.  I really like the 10k medals, can I say moreso than the half medals?  I know, I know, but I mean, it's Minnie, and a Stormtrooper, and fairies...


Have I mentioned how much I love Sweaty Bands?  Wednesday they posted pictures of the exclusive Disney designs they made for Marathon Weekend, and I so wanted to get to Orlando to get one of those designs.  I LOVE the Cheshire Cat band but didn't exactly know how I could get one.  But then I saw they also posted their Custom Design team info if we wanted one of the designs but weren't going to be at Disney.  So guess what I did?  I ordered the Cheshire Cat band.

"Oh, you can't help that.  Most everyone's mad here!"

  1. Lesley, it stinks being stuck at home while everyone else is racing, right? You mentioned that you are trying to work back to a 10K; have you experienced a setback recently? I hope you've not been injured - ugh. I love Allie's excitement about the race - classic! Hope your Monday is going well.

    1. I couldn't really run last year due to ITBS. I'm finally back on track and have set my sights on a 5k to start with. At the moment, I'm just enjoying being able to run even small distances without my leg unraveling.

  2. This is going to be your year! I know exactly how you feel, the past two years watching everyone else running marathons kinda killed me a little. I mean I was so happy for all my friends, but I couldn't help feeling super bummed that I couldn't be there running them too!
    You are on the mend, I definitely see a Disney 10K in your future sometime this year!!!!!

    1. I certainly hope so. I'm just focused on a 5k right now, but of course my brain can't help but look beyond that. I just can't stop it.
