Almost 3 months later…

First off, I apologize for my extended absence. I know a lot of people follow this blog and I failed you. My best excuse is that Mark and I are temporarily stationed in Mississippi and the hotel on base has…sub par internet connection. A lot of other life changing things has happened, such as Mark and I getting placed in a HOUSE on base at the next station. We got a house!!!! So exciting for us.

A quick recap: Mom and I did that Disneyland Half Marathon! We did it in 3 hours and 20 minutes due to humidity that my mother was having some breathing trouble with, so we took it slow. The amount of fun we had was incomparable though. I even saw some people I know, including my old classmate Suzy, a follower of this blog.


Below (I know they aren’t really in order) are some of the photos from the Disneyland Half Marathon. My mom ran as The Evil Queen from “Snow White and the Seven Dwarves” and I ran as Maleficent, from the movie namesake and my favorite Disney film, “Sleeping Beauty.”

Some of the photos are from our hotel room, waiting for the race to start (note the sheer size of the crowd!), from the track such as the castle, World of Color, and Angels Stadium, and icing at the end of the race. We overall had a blast!

In a few short weeks, my sweetie and I will be heading down to Walt Disney World to run in the Tower of Terror 10-Miler. Unfortunately, Mark hurt himself a month and a half ago and couldn’t walk on his ankle for a few weeks. Thanks to the “WONDERFUL” military hospitals, he still has yet to be scheduled for physical therapy.

So, we have been doing it on our own, a little at a time. He is finally up and moving around and plays volleyball for two hours a week with his friends. His ankle still gets stiff and pained, but he goes and runs with me, pushing himself a little farther each time. So far we’re doing about 5 miles an hour, so we’re hoping to maybe be just under two hours.

We are still deciding what to run as, but we’re both committed to running in some well constructed costumes.

After this race, come January my family and I (mother, brother, and myself) will be participating in the Star Wars Half Marathon in Disneyland. Sign up for email updates, because it will be hard for me to post regularly until we reach our next base and set up our own internet.


Thanks for all your support!

Have a Magical Week!
