Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! Made its debut Nov 14 in Hollywood Studios in Florida. Its the new show that replace the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights. The show stars many favorites including like Wayne and Lanny From “Prep & Landing” which projects animation onto the Chinese Theater. I personally thought the show was so cute and Disney of course did a great job with it but no matter what Osborne Family Lights will always have a place in my heart!

Let’s Talk: runDisney Paris

I am so excited Paris is one month away!

For me packing my running gear is already pretty stressful because I have to make sure I pack everything I’m going to need for the run, before, after and during. I like to break it up into lists Before Race, During Race, After Race.

Before Race:

pants, shoes, socks, undies, sports bra, hat, hair tie, arm band, iPod, watch, KT Tape, and headphones.

During Race:

Candy

Massage-Ball-Roller-Set-Lacrosse-and-Spiky-Ball-Combo-Pack-Massage-Balls-Perfect-for-Trigger-Point-and-Foot-Massaging-0

After Race:

roller balls, medicine, sandals

Normally bringing all this is no problem when its a race in Disneyland and WDW i down worry too much because I’m usually the only one running and i can store things in my mom bag, BUT Paris is a whole other story!

RDM697856

This will be the farthest i have gone, I’m trying to make sure that EVERYTHING i need fits into my bag along with my non running clothes. So this trip since i will be participating in the 5k and 1/2 marathon i am planning on bringing two running shoes and pants for the run and everything else i normally bring, but only one roller ball, medicine and no candles. I do plan on brining other shoes and outfits, but as for running shirts I plan on wearing the ones we get from the expo.

Now since it will be my first time in Paris i have to make sure that i make room for all the running goodies and Disneyland Paris goodies that i am planning on bringing home with me. I guess my question to all my runners out there, what are some necessities do you have to have when you are attending a runDisney event? Let me know in the comments below!

runDisney Shorts Series Medals

After a long time waiting i am so happy to announce that i have FINALLY received my medals fro the runDisney Shorts Series. My mom and i did the challenge where you do the 3 5k’s and get a completer while my nana completed her first ever 5k which started her healthy lifestyle change.


So if you accepted the Shorts challenge you would receive 3 5k medals: Yellow Shoe, Red Shorts and White glove, in addition to the three 5k medals you will receive a  completer medal and a Tumblr cup!


This was a great Experience to get everyone in the family up and active. My nana has never ran before in her life so ya she walked majority of the 5k BUT she did realize she was capable of running, and she ran for the first time in her life. My mom and i love walking and we do runs all the time, but this time my pups got to tag along on the Disney course because it was in our neighborhood so it was GREAT completing a 5k with my puppies.
 Did you participate in the runDisney Shorts Series? If so what medal did you receive and let me know how your experience was in the comments below!
