Mania & Magic: runDisney Registration Days

By Princess Jodi It’s been one week since the drama and insanity of Disney’s Wine and Dine Half-Marathon Weekend registration. Maybe I have PTSD, but I have not been able to think or talk about it without twitching until now. First things first, we got in. Fist pump. This was my first time needing to … Continue reading

Seeing The Light (Spring Training)

By Princess Laural It’s no secret that this winter has been tough for me. It was colder than I anticipated (which is ridiculous since we’re in Canada), and I lost momentum after running my first marathon. Add in some life events that were way out of my control – a car accident, an unexpected diagnosis … Continue reading

From Running to Spectating

From Running to Spectating

By Princess Laural As a runner, I’ve done a fair number of races, and I love when people come out to cheer me on. In fact, if you name a race, I can name the spectator, whether it was a friend or a complete stranger, that kept me going. There are so many times when … Continue reading

Falling Back In Love…With Running

I’m back! Life has been crazy on my homestead and while I know that is no excuse – sometimes life just happens. Yes, I am that type of runner that some of you just might relate to. First, running and I have a love/hate relationship. I love to hate it – especially when I get … Continue reading

Toronto Half Marathon Race Recap

Toronto Half Marathon Race Recap

It seems like forever since Jodi and I escaped for a girl’s weekend away.  The Goodlife Half Marathon took place on May the 4th – only a couple of weeks ago!  Usually, our races are family friendly and often the girls are running along side of us.  Typically for me, as one of my girls … Continue reading

Back in the Saddle

For those of you who don’t follow our blog regularly, my 2014 has not been a runner’s paradise. What I missed most was having a Disney race to look forward to. I have to admit, I have serious running blues and Disney “envyitis”. So, after a very hard winter, I was so excited when my … Continue reading

Ready to Run Like Royalty!

Ready to Run Like Royalty!

In some ways, running the 2013 Princess Half-Marathon feels like yesterday. In other ways, it seems like ages ago. It was my first half-marathon and an epic goal that kept me focused for months. That race, and all of the fanfare that accompanied it, was pure magic. And now here I am, 5 half-marathons later, ready to … Continue reading
