Three Things Thursday ...

Disney Princess Half - On Sunday, I ran the Disney Princess Half (full recap next week) dressed like this ...


Well, at least for the first three miles. That's when the sweat weakened the adhesive holding on the eyeball and I lost it. For the rest of the race, I ran as a Green Devil.


But, regardless, I had a blast and I finished in 1:59:26 without racing. I didn't even check my Garmin once. I'd say my pre-race goals were a success.

Active Recovery - This week in my 70.3 training, I have an active recovery week. My plan calls for three hours of cardio. Since the half marathon on Sunday, I haven't done a single workout (I am currently dressed to head out for a run though).

However, since Sunday afternoon, we have logged 29.3 miles of walking throughout the Disney theme parks. Someone, please tell me this counts for active recovery.

Seriously, though, we are averaging somewhere between five and nine miles a day and Dizzle, our six year old has walked EVERY.SINGLE.STEP. Yeah, she's a total Honey Badger.

Disney Obsessed - We are having a blast on vacation and I am probably going to move here permanently. Yesterday morning, for One More Disney Day, we woke the kids up at 4:30 a.m. to head over to the Magic Kingdom. Yes, we are obsessed. And no, that is not a form of child abuse.

Dilly, Dizzle and Me

Me and my sister, Angie Pants
 See? Despite the early wake up calls, we are all smiles.

Well if all your other plans fall through, you could totally be a Disney tour guide or travel agent specializing in maxaminzing a Disney trip with preschoolers!

I'll be your first client when we finally get back there.

Very impressed with Dizzle's walking! I teach older kids who can't walk anywhere without major whining. It worries me how inactive kids are.

Oh, I love that green skirt! You must have felt really girly, running in that.

Stellar "Mike" outfit! Bet Billy Crystal would totally want to borrow that for his next award-hosting gig.

Great run and awesome parenting, too :)

It sounds like a great race and what an awesome idea to couple with a family vacation.
