First up this is my second day of Paleo. Yesterday was great if a little lacking in energy by rehearsal that evening. Of course we were working the big dance number Ugh A Wugg so I was bound to be tired.
Here’s the trouble spot: I woke up this morning feeling like I had no energy at all. I immediately scarfed down a banana, made some hot chocolate (not strictly paleo), and ate an apple with almond butter. About an hour later I was back to normal.
My theory is that I didn’t eat enough calories yesterday. Not having grains makes that harder. My potential solution will be to track my calorie intake better just to make sure I am getting enough.
Moving on to part 2:
Today at noon, so like now since my computer is being slow, registration opens for runDisney’s Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend. This year the event will be November 6-7, 2015.
This event has a special place in my heart since it was my first half marathon ever! And after running the Jingle Jungle 5k that morning. And with a broken finger from my attempt to learn to ride a bike.
While I don’t plan on running it in 2015 I highly recommend the race. Really both races, because the Jungle Jungle 5k is honestly a blast! (Not to mention it was my first time ever seeing Animal Kingdom…. pretty cool way to experience a new park for the first time.)
Let the onslaught of pictures begin:
Wine & Dine Half Marathon
There is simply no way to describe running through the Osborn Lights. Maybe one way, magical! But you just have to experience it for yourself.
Oh forgot to tell you I managed to convince my dad to run too. I think he is looking forward to just the 5k of Expedition Everest Challenge.
So what are you waiting for? Register for the Wine & Dine today! (oh, and hit me up if you want to guest blog about your race.)
Keep it running & fierce!
