runDisney 2019: Race Day

Another run bites the dust! Race day came and went and today was an insane day! So my mom and I woke up at 3am got dressed and ready for the race and caught the bus at about 3:45am. We hung out at in front  of the stage until 4:30am, went over to the corrals and hung out for two hours due to the fact Disney decided to change up the run a bit and have mini waves in each corral so the traffic would be lighter. In my opinion, I don’t think it worked because we still got hit with walls of people, and walls of people who were walking. All and all the run took us 27 minutes to finish, I was hoping to PR this race BUT like I said there were so many people blocking it was hard to get around but it was still a lot of fun.

We got back to the hotel at 7 something, got in the shower and went straight to Disney Springs to pick up some gifts for family and friends. We headed back to the hotel hopped on the bus of shame (the bus to go home) and spent the rest of the day in the air. Overall the race was a lot of fun, 5k’s are my favorite because they take the least amount of time and I don’t get into my head. Congrats, to everyone who ran or participated in the 5k today because 3 miles is still a lot and you should be proud and wear your medal proudly because you accomplished those 3 miles! Good luck to everyone who are running, the 10k, 1/2, Goofy and or Dopey! You got this!

runDisney 2018: Packet Pickup!

The plane landed a bit later than what we wanted, the Magical Express line was insanely long and we got to the hotel 7:30 hopped off, got on the runDisney Expo bus and got to ESPN Wide World of Sports about 7:45, ran over to pick up our bib, ran to the next building to pick up our shirts, where my mom exchanged hers so we only had 12 more minutes to head over to the third building and well with 3 minutes to spare we made it into the Official merchandise building and speed shopped, we had 10 minutes to shop and get to the register. It was an insane night and I don’t fully remember everything I saw but I know I spent WAY WAY WAY too much money.

Disneyland Price Increase 2019!

The most anticipated (not loved) price increase of 2019 has made it’s debut for Star Wars: Galaxy Edge has made a bigger jump than what everyone was expecting. So, here are the updated prices to look forward to this year.

runDisney 2019!

Two weeks ago I had this semi crazy urge to check the runDisney website to see if there were any spots open for the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend 5k because I absolutely LOVED the medal and to my surprise there were still spots and without even thinking I signed my mom and I up for the race…but we couldn’t get off of work for the entire race weekend (unfortunately). So on my crazy spur of the moment 5k purchase I booked a hotel, and flight so we leave Wednesday, go to the running expo, pick up some merch (hopefully), then go back to the hotel and sleep. While Thursday we will run, if we don’t make it to the expo on Wednesday we will go Thursday and not go to Hollywood Studios and then fly home with the most magical 5k medal ever Oswald the Lucky Rabbit!

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!

Festival of Holiday 2018!

Aside from all the decorations and the holiday parades I love to hop on over to Disney California Adventure and get my foodie life on at the Festival of Holiday! The first item that I purchased was a sip and savor pass which cost $49 for AP holders then I looked over the menu and started my foodie journey.

  • Braised pork belly adobo with garlic fried rice
  • Beef pot roast on a potato bun with horseradish creme
  • Holiday ham Shank with brown sugar pineapple glaze
  • Holiday Punch with lime sorbet and sprite
  • Chorizo queso fundido with house made tortillas
  • Holiday Mickey and Minnie cookies
  • Nashville Hot Fried Turkey with Dill Pickle
  • Pazole rojo beef with hominy polenta

They were all really good except I learned I don’t like horseradish other than that I do have my top three favorites, which are:

Holiday ham shank with brown sugar and pineapple glaze, Chorizo queso fundido with house made tortillas, and the Nashville hot fried turkey with dill pickle. Honestly, If I had anymore time I would have waited in all those lines just to get those three dishes. They were just amazing and 100% regret not getting them again.
