Weekly Roundup: June 9th

This week started out with nice weather, but we ended up with rain several days towards the end of the week.  Christine raced the Run For the Dream Half Marathon in Williamsburg, VA last Sunday and enjoyed the race despite the high heat and humidity.
A winning smile with a new medal for the collection!
RunDisney opened advance registration for the Princess Half Marathon races and I slipped and registered for the Glass Slipper Challenge.  Somehow, I need to be kept away from any computer when race registration opens for the Disney races.  I now have "runDisney fingers", a disease that makes you unable to resist clicking and registering for whatever new Disney race is on the horizon.  Christine shows way more restraint!

Oops,  runDisney fingers struck again!
Our exercise week was pretty good and here is a run down of our workouts.  With Dumbo Challenge just 81 days away, we need to start focusing on more long runs and some back to back work as well.

How was your week?


  1. Fun! I won't make it to princess but hoping to do another Disney race in 2014 I haven't done yet!

    1. We hope we will also be doing a new one...Disneyland Paris! Fingers and toes crossed a race will be announced for fall 2014!

  2. I've been taking it easy these last few weeks, running low mileage and doing the RW Run Streak.
    You ladies are so good at adding in the weights and cross training. I need some of that!! :)

    1. Hi Karen, As an older runner, I am not comfortable taking on a streak challenge for running but admire those who do. Enjoy your running and add in the other stuff when you find time!

  3. So jealous! I've never done Princess...my runDisney finger syndrome must not be quite as bad as your since I haven't registered for it yet (but that doesn't mean it can't take a sudden turn for the worse!).
