runDisney Wine & Dine 2016 + Disney Trip

Last year in November, I convinced Phil to run with me!

I had so much fun, despite the really early mornings, 3:45am!! Yeah, us runners are crazy.

There’s nothing like being in a magical place celebrating love, life, and amazing friends (Tiffany and Karla – we’re so happy they drove to Orlando to hang out with us)! Day 1 // ESPN Wide World Of Sports Complex + Expo, Twin Peaks Day 2 // Mickey’s Holiday 5K (Animal Kingdom) A delicious breakfast buffet of […]
