Favorite Posts of 2012


I am loving this short week business. Thursday already? I’ll take it! Does anyone still have outside Christmas decorations up? Guilty. I promise they are coming down today, it’s just been a little crazy around here. I thought it would be fun for me to share some of my favorite posts from 2012 with you, and break them into categories. For new RWS readers this will be a fun way to get to know me more, and for my old faithfuls (I love you!), hopefully still entertaining!

    Fun!! :0) That Enchilada Casserole sounds really good. Yes, we are guilty of still having outside decorations up. Jason has to get on the roof so lights will not come down until this weekend. All week he’s worked days – it’s dark when he leaves and it’s dark when he gets back home. Ah well – as long as they aren’t up until March, I think we will be ok! :0)

    Hi I have a question, I’m considering signing up for the Disney double dare, I know you have done Disney races, do you recommend them? I have to find child care for my child with autism so I’m trying to plan right since I’m coming from AZ, would you recommend being there fri or is it better to come earlier? Also where would you recommend staying? I see its at Disney resort which sounds awesome but so expensive so I was curious if most people stay other places? Any advice before I registrar would be great, I don’t want to do something wrong and regret it! Thanks carie

    I just reread all your Disney posts, are the Disney races so crowded that they are not even fun to run or be apart of the whole weekend? It’s always been a dream of mine to do one and the Dumbo double dare seems perfect for me but am worried that I will be disappointed with traveling and the cost of it and it just being a mass of chaos! I won’t be able to purchase a park ticket or special weekend retreat just the normal race so I was just curious how crazy it will all be and if it is still fun and worth it? Thanks I love your blog.

      Hi there! The races are crowded in the beginning, but then after a couple miles they thin out and they are tons of fun! The disneyland half was even less crowded because you start running out on a very wide street! If you have more questions please e mail me!

    I’m so glad you posted this! As a newer reader to your blog, it was nice to read through these older posts. I’m training for my first half (RNR in Washington DC 3/16) after losing 60+ pounds (still 40 to go!) and I was getting a little teary eyed looking at all of your finish line photos and reading the stories. I’ve done a few 5Ks and a leg of the Urbanathlon, but I absolutely can’t wait for the finish line of the half!! I know I’ll be a crying mess! Thanks for the great info!!
