Star Wars Darkside Half Marathon - RECAP!

Friends, I couldn't wait until Wednesday!!! I'm just so excited, so SURPRISE!!! We had such a wonderful weekend at Walt Disney World, followed by an insane week at home (more on that in another post).

So without further boring introduction, here is my recap from the Star Wars Darkside Half Marathon. Recently I mentioned that due to a glitch in the system, my husbands proof of time was not read. However, since he had put all the information in a notes section of Active, RunDisney was able to (within seconds) place him in the appropriate corral! He moved from Corral J all the way up to Corral D [insert happy dance].

Since I am expecting, and had zero intention of stopping for anything except maybe a bathroom we agreed that he should run in his corral and I would run in mine (Corral G).

Prior to the start of the race, we took several pictures with some star wars peeps, and just had a lovely time enjoying the pre-race vibe.  My sister was also running the half but was in a differ…

On Friday morning around 5:00 a.m. we texted our family to let them know we were expecting baby number 3. Of course everyone was super excited but they had no idea I was actually pretty far along and would be announcing to Facebook on the same day that we told them!

Weekly Chase - Star Wars Half Prep Week

Hello Lovelies!

It is time to start prepping for another #rundisney race weekend. I have mixed emotions about the Star Wars Darkside Challenge weekend.

On one hand, I am SUPER excited for it. We are staying in one of my bucket list resorts, we are celebrating our daughters first birthday, and it's star wars.

On the other hand, I'm pretty disappointed in the customer service of RunDisney. My husband worked really hard to get an awesome time to submit for a Proof of Time. He submitted it, and... something happened it wasn't read by the system and RD is refusing to accept the screen shot of his POT submission.  He has had zero luck with emailing RD about the situation, so we are going to head over to Runner Relations and hopefully get him in an appropriate corral.  ...sigh... so frustrating.

Before I get all excited an talk about my goals for this week, let me talk about last week.

Weekly Chase - APRIL!!!!

I'm a little sad that it's April... Mostly because it means my baby girl will be turning 1 this month. Her first year went WAY too fast, and it makes me a little emotional to think about it. In the last month or so her personality has changed SO much. She is much more active now so she and her sister play together most of the day.

I love listening to them giggle and play together.

This weekend was a lot of fun. My husband made an appointment to get our tires rotated and oil changed first thing Saturday morning, so we loaded up the girls and headed to get that done before heading to the Magic Kingdom.  I am SO thankful we didn't cancel the appointment and go to Disney because it turns out the tires were in pretty rough shape - soooo 4 new tires (and an extra hour) at the dealership later and we were on our way to Disney.

The girls were pretty tired from playing at the dealership for 2.5 hours so they slept much of the trip (YAY).  We decided to order some Chipotle and eat b…
