Hope everyone had a great holiday season and a great new year so far! It's been pretty low key around here. We cooked and movie marathoned for Christmas and hung out with friends in the neighborhood for New Years. Honestly, as much as I miss my family and love getting to visit, this extremely relaxing staycation was very much needed. I feel refreshed. Another goal for 2014: add some real vacations into the mix! (again, not a new concept, but if I keep repeating it, maybe it'll happen).
So, what's the next thing to start looking forward to?
The only runDisney race (I believe) I didn't run in costume.
Who's going Dopey? As marathon weekend gets closer, I was a little concerned I would regret only registering for the 10k and not signing up for the half marathon. It's safe to say, I'm not! I'm actually really excited that I get to run a Disney race I've never run before (hence, inaugural, haha!), have a runDisney volunteer experience and then spectate all my friends going Dopey for the full marathon! It'll be a short and sweet trip that will get me ready for the real challenge, The Glass Slipper Challenge.

And speaking of the rD: The 2014 New Balance special edition runDisney shoes were officially revealed today. Pink Minnie and Sorcerer Mickey are the new styles for the stability shoe. This year, they also added a neutral option with Cinderella and Goofy. All 4 of these, as well as a new children's line, are exclusive to the runDisney race expos. I'm a fan of the pink Minnie shoes, but I wish they came in neutral. New Balance also has a new system for purchasing the shoes (ie NOT standing in line for hours), so maybe they'll be more appealing for a later race?
I'm still lusting after the NYC Limited Edition NYC 890v4. If it has NYCM on it, I need it in my life apparently. I think I smell a birthday present?
