Weekly Roundup: August 4th

This week brought some challenges with Christine running her first ever 15 mile training run and Pam running 4 days including both speed work and a tough tempo run.  The heat and humidity have not dissipated, so it continues to be difficult to train outside.   Our Sunday run in Chesapeake, VA was quite a toasty one and we even made a stop at the local Starbucks to refill our water bottles!  The girls there are always accommodating and it is nice to know that is an option should Christine need a refill!  However, we both keep thinking that once we arrive in California the humidity should be minimal and the temperature should be better than what we are dealing with in North  Carolina and Virginia.

Details here!

This week our blog posts focused on the upcoming Disney races that we are so excited about, the Dumbo Challenge which includes the Inaugural Disneyland 10k and the Disneyland Half Marathon.  With race instructions now available on the runDisney website, the anticipation is growing as we count down the days until we fly to California.  In the meantime, both of us had very productive training weeks that included the following workouts:
