The Weekly Review

We’re entering the final weeks of 2017. I’ve been saying all year long that this year has flown by. As challenging and rewarding as this year has been, I’m looking forward to heading into 2018 with big goals and positivity.

For starters, our runDisney countdowns have hit critical points! 50 days for Marathon weekend, and 100 days for Princess!

Speaking of running things, there are a couple of updates from my neck of the woods:

Due to prolonged damage from Hurricane Irma, Everglades Half weekend is cancelled. I’m a little disappointed, but totally understand that the park itself is still underwater, and since the water hasn’t receded yet, it’s pointless to hold a race.

However, when doors close, windows open…

I got to sign up for the company fun run! It’s a 5K through Universal Orlando property! This will be just my third 5K in my running career, and I’m hoping to break :30 (current PR is :34-something). It’s a non-chipped race, so I’ll be trusting my Garmin for the time.

I will be heading back to DC at the end of the month for the Cherry Blossom kickoff event! I had a blast last year running the 10 Miler. For those wondering, “You’ve been to DC twice since you’ve moved. What gives?”, I still enjoy DC immensely for various reasons, and if financial circumstances were different, I’d still be up there. I’m looking forward to seeing the city transform itself for the holidays; I think the trees will be up by the time I get there!

A couple weeks ago, runners descended into Orlando for the final east coast runDisney event, the Wine and Dine Half Marathon weekend! I headed to the expo to see what there was to see…

I still think this passport medal (and the travel themed medals in general) is the most genius thing the runDisney designers has come up with.

It’s not a runDisney expo without Wetzel’s pretzels and beer!

 

Congrats to everyone who finished their races recently. We’ve had a ton as we start closing out fall racing season! (Wine and Dine, Avengers, RnR Las Vegas, RnR Savannah, Ragnar Relays, etc.)

Let’s see what else has happened…oh! I finally got to visit SeaWorld!

And Elsa has made her appearance at DIsney. The Dream Lights are finally on!

Picture from…2016? Early 2017? They all look the same now.

And finally, the holiday decor has made their way into stores. I went to Michaels, and while I didn’t spend any money, took in the lights and glitter and cuteness. This sign was one of my favorites:
