Life After the Marathon....

Hey everyone!  Sorry I've been missing lately.  There's still SO much I want to write about my trip and pictures I still have to go through and edit.  Life got kicked into overdrive when I got back from Florida!

Work got pretty busy, grad school started again, and I just feel like I haven't had any time to do anything else.  Instead of taking two classes this semester, like I had planned, I decided to take 3.  The amount of reading and work required for them is insane so I'm drowning in books about international business and India.  Sound fun, right? 

As for running since I've been back?  I'm getting back into it slowly.  Haven't really done anything over 3 miles but hoping to get in 6 or 7 this weekend to test out the legs.  I HAVE to be recovered by now, right?!  I've been trying to keep up with my weight training since I slacked off big time leading up to the race so that's taking up a bit of my gym time. 

I'm hoping to have a recap of our first day in Florida up soon.  I'll probably do it in parts...the Expo, Hollywood Studios, and dinner at Mama Melrose.  :)

In the meantime...I'm also trying to catch up to everyone's blogs! :) 


  1. Can't wait to hear about Mama Melrose's - one of my favorite restaurants in Disney :)

    Good luck with your long run this weekend, I'm sure it's going to feel great - especially to relieve a little stress!

  2. Can't wait to hear what you thought of your Mama Melrose dinner. I have only eaten there once ages ago when I lived there, but my mom and I were talking about hitting that up during Princess weekend!

  3. Looking forward to hearing about everything! Have a good weekend

  4. This sounds exciting. Doing it in separate posts will surely build the suspense! cant wait!

  5. Congrats on your Disney Marathon. One of my favorite races and plan to go back next year. 3 years ago I ran it for the first time and loved it.

  6. Whew! Busy busy! Hope life slows down for you soon! :0)
