Weekly Roundup : August 25th

We are so close to leaving for our trip to California and the inaugural runDisney Dumbo Double Dare Challenge.  This week seemed to go so slowly despite being a busy one for both of us!  Our workouts went pretty well and I was relieved that my 10 mile run gave me confidence that my quad is ready for the Dumbo Challenge.

Some fun things happened this week too!  Our tickets for Disneyland came so we are can't wait to hit the parks as soon as we arrive on Thursday morning!

Ready to hit the entrance turnstiles!

In just seven days we will be earning four new medals to add to our bling collection.  I can't wait for Christine to experience Disneyland and get her coast to coast medal.
