Goodbye 2018 Hello 2019!

I will have to say this year was a bit rough. There were deaths in the family, and some eye opening experiences to certain people in my life. My grandma had two surgeries which led to some very stressful nights.

Aside from all the negative, I’ve learned people’s true colors and know who I can trust and who I can’t. My grandma turned 80 years old and has had two surgeries and is on her way to being independent again. I am also learning how to not stress out about the little things in life and to try and find that silver lining. I had two very healthy little puppers, who bring so much joy to my life.

This year, I started off running 48.6 miles, and ended it with finishing the Jeff Galloway’s 2018 mile challenge with 3000+ miles. As for 2019 I will do my best with not stressing and of course I will be starting off the year with a 5k run no more 48.6 miles for me…hopefully. I’m also praying this year for everyone’s health, happiness and sanity. I’m glad I’m starting off the year with the ones that mean the most to me especially those furry little ones of mine.

Happy New Year!

2018 Year of Bling!

It is that time of year again to talk about that runDisney bling and of course all of the blood sweat and tears that go into getting the bling!

1. Favorite non runDisney medal based solely on design.

2. Favorite non runDisney medal based on experience.

Unfortunately, I do not have one because I have not ran any other races that are not runDisney.

3. Favorite Disney medal based on design.

It’s between the Dopey Challenge medal and the Incredibles Virtual Run Challenge medal.

4. Favorite Disney Medal based on experience.

WDW Marathon weekend 5k medal

5. Medal from favorite running costume.

Sadly, I do not dress up while I run. I know boating but the sad truth

6. Least favorite medal.

The WDW Marathon 10k medal. I’m not a fan of it… I’m sorry. I still love it but not my favorite.

7. Most hard earned medal.

The marathon medal from WDW Marathon weekend. 48.6 miles, with a side of blood sweat and tears. This one I fell in a ditch, I lost my mom who was hurt and I cried a lot on the course… good times…

8. Favorite running shirt.

The incredibles virtual running shirt.

9. Prettiest medal.

I would say the 1/2 marathon medal from WDW Marathon weekend. I just love to look at it.

10. Most improved medal.

My WDW Marathon weekend 5k medal it was one of my fastest times because I was freezing and wanted to go back to the hotel!

Ice skating 2018!

The tradition got a little bit bigger! This year our family tradition just added on two more cousins and an aunt into our ice skating tradition!

Two of my younger cousins have joined the annual cousin ice skating tradition in Union Square. My baby cousin Anthony and little cousin Taylor. Mid Taylie was a pro skater, while my cousin Anthony well he loved to fall and take down the cousins that were in his reach!

None the less we had a lot of fun and made some memories and bruises that will last a lifetime! Ducks fly together!
