Glass Slipper Challenge Day 2 – Meetups and Tea

The first race of the Glass Slipper Challenge was done and I wanted to take a shower and nap before my 10:50 Team Shenanigans breakfast at Kona.

Glass Slipper Challenge Day 2 – The Princess Enchanted 10K Race

2017 WDW Marathon Weekend Day 3 – Half Marathon….Not

While you may not like to see something like this come across your Twitter and Facebook feed the night before the race; it was kind of a sigh of relief for me.  I was doing the Dopey Challenge this year; which meant I had to run four races in a row. But it was nice…read more
