Disney in 19

I love my Newtons!!  They remind me of my Gel-Noosa Tris, but with less of a heel drop and a bit more comfortable.  I ran my first longer run in them, and never once thought about my feet or arches during.

So there are 19 days until the Dumbo Dare!  It is getting close!  I am doing most of my running on the treadmill these [monsoon-lessly hot, summer] days.  The treadmill is tough, but I think I am beginning to mentally master it and 95% of the time I don't even watch tv.

My weird treadmill trick:  I count 3 songs per mile!  So if I'm running a 10 miler I do 10x3 = 30 songs, and I count down each song as it comes on, and I cover the treadmill #s so I have no idea where I'm at.  Somehow I don't lose track of my song count (I'm weird),...though Ben thinks he would so maybe that's hard.  The fun thing is I mentally commit myself to 30 songs of running, and usually my run is over with many songs to spare since 3 per mile is a little excessive (but it always varies).
I figure it's okay to show Jolie's costume, pre-race, since she posted it on FB.  She's creative and goes way back with Jessie.
My costume is pretty cute (of course I think that), but I won't have all the pieces until race weekend since my sis picked them up for my b-day present, which is the same day as the 1/2 marathon (thanks sis)!  It consists of wearing these ears that I just bought online:

Looking forward to the Disney Races (if you can't tell).  You will probably hear me talk about how excited I am, a million more times.  Have I ever been this excited for a race?  Maybe once.
Isn't that the truth?

Have a fantastic Monday!

  1. That costume is so cute! I am sure yours is going to be just as cute! I keep telling myself that I am going to dress up one for a Disney race but it never happens. I can't believe Disney is just 19 days away and I don't even have a plan yet. My mind is focused on the marathon these days!
