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)

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.

Running on Vacation

Vacations are meant to be a break from schedules and routines, but it doesn’t have to mean a break from running! Run away from life for a week, sure, but don’t run away from your fitness goals. Some of my favourite runs have taken place while on vacation.

Introducing Princess Laural

Introducing Princess Laural

Anyone who reguarly reads our blog knows that our training for the 2013 Princess Half-Marathon changed our lives in many ways. One of the most unexpected gifts of choosing that race at that time was meeting a fellow princess-in-training who lived in a land not too far away from us. Her name is Laural. And … Continue reading

Running Down Memory Lane: 2014 in Review

Happy New Year! First things first, it has been a long while since I have blogged which is so very unlike me. I had a super-charged, intense 2014 racing calendar that started running Coast to Coast with the Tinker Bell Half-Marathon and Glass Slipper Challenge.
