  1. Loved seeing you pictures...your right...who doesn't LOVE Mickey waffles... Looking at them just makes you smile~
    Those cupcakes looked amazing...great way to celebrate! Love the pictures from the Disney Meet Up...so neat the two of you were selected to do that.
    I think my favorite photo is Pam hugging Mickey at the end of her marathon...Its just PURE JOY! Reminds us all why we love to run...
    Hugs you two....Melissa

    1. Thanks Melissa, My favorite ever Disney photo is the Mickey one. I am debating ordering the race DVD...a splurge, but the photos came out very nice and I may never run another marathon!

  2. AWESOME! I may have to put Disney on my list of marathons to do! Remember that I mentioned my friend Amanda who was doing the marathon using a hand cycle (she lost her leg at 12 due to cancer)...? She came in first in the handcycle division!
    Also, the quote "Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels."....Pretty sure that doesn't apply to those cupcakes!!

    1. Danielle, That is my favorite race photo and it will always be a treasure since it was from my first (and possibly only) marathon. Christine loved her float and love the soft serve...awesome treat!

  5. Congrats to both of you for your AMAZING accomplishments!! You've inspired me to run this year's Wine and Dine again even after saying I'd never do another Disney race again (only because of all the zig-zagging I had to do to get around people). Won't be starting in Corral G this time! And as for 2014, c'mon ladies! I see a C2C medal for us all!

    1. Thanks Kymberley. We so enjoy doing this together and love the excitement of the Disney races. We are going C2C this year with the Dumbo Double Dare, but next year we are running the Tinkerbell Half for sure!

    2. Then I will probably see you there! I'll be the one with the Tink wings on. Lol!!!

    3. I am also going back to Wine and Dine but not sure yet about Christine...her work schedule makes it more difficult. I am lucky to be free to run the races. :)
