I am absolutely loving this weather! Can we all do a collaborative weather dance that fall is officially here? It would make me very happy. It's such a terrible tease if not, but definitely well deserved after that 7 day heatwave. Even though I am NOT a fan of hot weather (again, if you haven't figure that out) I will admit, I was hoping for the summer to make me a better runner for The Dumbo Dare Challenge. I'm ok not sweating through my clothes and actually enjoying being outside, though.

So, if you're up on the Disneyland meetup hype, you will see my name on the list of people who got one of the coveted spots! I've been waiting for a chance to get into this meetup since I first discovered it 2 years ago. Sadly, I will not be able to actually attend. That flight insurance I swore I bought specifically for this scenario? Yea, can't find it. I really have no one to blame but myself and I'm not really in the mood for that, so we're move on! Surprisingly, I was upset for about 5 minutes and then I got over it. Funny how life works like that. Would it have been great to go? Definitely. Is it the end of the world? No. There is going to be so much to do that weekend as it is that I kind of felt a tad relieved. How could I possibly be that upset? I get to see a TON of my friends and make new ones!
And on some good race news: I finally decided to pull the trigger on Rock-n-Roll Philly. I also managed to convince people to come with me! YaY! I really loved this race when I ran it in 2011. Perfect weather and a gorgeous course! I really loved that the race took us through downtown first and then looped us back around. It was also the race I qualified for the Heavy Medal Rockstar status, and B and I's first out-of-town experience together. We really loved the city. As soon as I saw the medal, I knew I had to do it again. Bring it on, City of Brotherly love!
What are you blessed with?
