Why I Run

It's Global Running Day! 5AM came rather quickly, but I surprisingly didn't have trouble getting out of bed. Connor and I planned on doing something this morning that we — interestingly — have never done before: run together on a week day before going to work. Anyone I know will tell you that I'm not...

The Great 30th Year Photo Project

#natalies365photoproject Last year on my birthday (when I turned the big 3-0), I embarked on a year-long journey of taking one photo every day for the entire year. This wasn't my first go-around with a 365 photo project; I did one when I first moved to New Jersey and started it on my 25th birthday.... Continue Reading →

Race Recap: The Disneyland 10K

#NatConDisney: The Races, part 1 Where to begin?! So it's been a little over two weeks since we completed our Dumbo Double Dare challenge at Disneyland...we're still beaming about it and can't believe that it not only happened, but it's over already. We had so much fun! Running 19.3 miles over the course of two... Continue Reading →

Connor and I will be running the Disneyland Dumbo Double... Continue Reading →

Post-WDW Half Marathon Thoughts

Now that we've returned from the happiest place on earth and (I think) recovered from our first half marathon, we wanted to share the excitement and experience of race day and what we learned. First of all...we did it! And we completed the race in under three hours, which was our goal (not too shabby... Continue Reading →

Pre-Race Day Thoughts

It's your not-so-typical Natalie/Connor Friday night here at the happiest place on earth. Instead of gallivanting around the parks as per usual, we are lounging in our room before dinner, awaiting the much-anticipated event of the last few months: the Walt Disney World Half Marathon. This is the first half marathon for us both and just... Continue Reading →

No Mousing Around

I've had a few little birdies lately (you know who you are and thank you!) give me some much-needed encouragement to start writing again and jump back on the blogging train. Well, it worked—I am back! Though sometimes I still feel like this: Writing is like a muscle; you've got to consistently train and work hard... Continue Reading →
