The Great Medal Caper!


On Tuesday, runDisney announced a fun and cute little challenge, to help find the missing marathon medal! What happened to it? Check out my video to find out more!

Below is the official runDisney video explaining the challenge

Come help us find Donald in The Great Medal Caper!


Our old friend Donald Duck caused a bit of trouble earlier today when security footage captured him running off with Mickey’s 20th Anniversary Walt Disney World Marathon medal design!

Turns out he got a bit jealous and loved it so much, he hit the road to find a designer of his own. Little did he know, we’ve already created a new Half Marathon medal for him too!

Join runDisney Fans all over the world in the search for Donald at the runDisney Facebook page. He’s already been spotted on the West Coast, and only your “Fan Magic” can help us find him to reveal the brand new Half Marathon medal and reveal Mickey’s special 20th Anniversary Walt Disney World Marathon medal design. In addition to seeing this morning’s breaking news, you’ll also unlock a few runDisney goodies along the way!


Don’t wait too long, these races are filling up! Here are the current capacity percentages:

Marathon (78% Full), Half Marathon (67% Full) Goofy’s Race and a Half Challenge (87% Full).

QOTD: What would your ideal medal look like if you could design one yourself?

July Goal Rewind & August Goals

I am SO PROUD to be an American this morning. I stayed up late watching these amazing athletes bring home the gold for the USA. What a night, so much fun to watch, these girls truly had a great time.

I am especially happy for this girl, and am so glad she got her gold.

Look at that smile, I love it. The announcers said something so amazingly true when speaking of her last night, they mentioned how redemption is so sweet. So true, I love it and am so happy for her.

Anyway, is it really August? This makes me sad and happy all at the same time. August means life is going by way too fast. But, August also means football, Healthy Living Summit, and Disneyland!


It also means it’s time to take a look back at my July goals and see how I did:

1.) Foam Roll (A-) I did MUCH better this month with foam rolling. I spent more in the room where the foam roller is kept so I found myself using it more. Also, I am trying to stay really loose so when I can start back to running I don’t have crazy tight leg muscles.

2.) Take more photos with my DSLR camera: (C+) While I did take a bunch of photos during our beach trip, that’s one of two times I picked up the camera all month. Healthy living summit will for sure include a lot of photo taking, and I am going to try to keep at it all during August.

3.) Read 2 books: (A+) At the least I read two books, and I am halfway through another. Score!

4.) Unplug more on the weekends: (B-) While I still blogged every day and occasionally updated my social media accounts, I did do a better job of not constantly updating my status, etc. Now that I am using Buffer (which I am obsessed with!) It should further help my mission of unplugging on the weekends.

5.) Cook 2 new recipes: (C) I cooked one new recipe. Not a total fail, especially for me, but I still want to do better with this one!


Which brings me to my goals for August.

1.)  Cook one new recipe: I am going to be more realistic with this one, a new recipe in a month is a mini goal that will boost my confidence!

2.) Have a fully healed foot. Enough said.

3.) Fix my hair at least once a week. Sadly, it stats up all the time and I haven’t straightened or curled it in a LONG time. Working from home has made me sloppy.

4.) Secret goal: I have a “secret” goal I can’t share on the blog yet, but I know what it is, and I will let you know if I reach it. Winking smile

5.) Walk the dogs more: It has been so hot I haven’t taken them for long walks lately. (Keep in mind they weight 8 pounds and we have a decent sized house so they get plenty of exercise) But I think it is good for everyone when we take walks together.


Keeping it small and realistic this month, I could use a confidence boost and something to be proud of at the end of the month!

Something fun, Running With Sass is doing well, and July yielded the post page views I have ever had on the blog, so thank you all so much for reading, I love you guys so much!
