Name Change and Some Exciting News

So, if you've somehow been following me for a bit you might have noticed I changed from Sunshine's Wonderland to Run. Ride. Read. Repeat.

When a friend went searching for this blog she stumbled across a different one under the name Sunshine's Wonderland. So, I elected to change from my Disney CP blog name to something that focuses more on what I currently do with my life. I run, ride horses, and read (a bit too much).

In terms of my life, I'm only seven days out from the Fort2Base run. This race seems like it will be a great predictor race for the Crystal Lake Half Marathon in a few weeks. I'm aiming for under 3 hours for the half, which will hopefully get me a good placement in the Disney Princess Glass Slipper Challenge.

Yes, I signed up for the Glass Slipper Challenge. Well, my mom signed me up. Thanks mom!

When I lived in FL I always wanted to run one of the RunDisney races, and now that my life (and finances) are more stable I think this is the perfect "starter" race! Being a student and an intern the past few years really stopped me from taking several opportunities. Now that I'm done with that period in my life I can't wait to seize the day!

Along with the Princess I have also signed up for the Pixie Dust Challenge during Disney's Tinker Bell Half Marathon Weekend! This will not only allow me to see Disneyland for the first time, but I will also earn my Coast-To-Coast medal! In pink!!! Pink always makes everything better!

While there are no longer spots in any of the Princess Weekend events through RunDisney, there may still be some through charity spots or travel agents, You can find those participants here!

Tinker Bell, on the other hand (at the time of this posting), still has spots through RunDisney for the Pixie Dust Challenge and the Half Marathon.  The link should take you directly to the Active registration site. If you wish to register for the 10K or 5K, you may be able to do so through charity spots or travel agents.

I promise I'll start posting more pictures and fun things on these posts. I need to figure out a better system with my camera first.

In the meantime, have a picture of my little stumpy man! He just turned 8 and still loves to bother his pack brother and sister! Although, the cat still manages to push him around.



So, let me know! Who else is running in Princess or Tinker Bell? Which races are you doing? If you're not doing any of the Disney races, what do you have on your upcoming race schedule?
