My Favorite Race in 2017

Hi everyone and happy Tuesday!  For this week's Tuesdays On the Run, the topic is "favorite race of 2017"  I have to admit, I was having a hard time choosing which was the best.  2017 was a fantastic racing year for me.  I set new PRs and even earned my coast to coast medal!  However, my favorite race of the year was the 2017 Cedar Point Half Marathon.

The Cedar Point Half Marathon is part of the Run and Ride Race Series which features races all around the country ranging from 1 mile fun runs to half marathons at some of the best theme parks out there!

This past June, Nicole and I both participated in the run and ride weekend at Cedar Point.  Nicole ran the quarter marathon and I ran the half marathon.  The main reason this was my favorite race of the year was this happened:
Yup, I broke the tape!
I still can't believe this was a thing that happened!  I had so much fun running through the park and then the streets of Sandusky, OH.  This is my proudest racing moment …

One Month Until Dopey -Weekly Update

One month from today, I'll be kicking off the first leg of the Dopey Challenge with the WDW Marathon Weekend 5k.  It's hard to believe that the first 3.1 miles of the challenge is only a month away.  All that's left is the last few weeks of training and one more 20 miler. I can't wait to get the challenge started!

Monday: 5 miles
Tuesday: 7.3 miles
Wednesday: 10 miles
Thursday: 20 miles
Friday: 2.8 miles
Saturday: 5 miles
Sunday: REST DAY

This past week's 20 miler didn't go as well as the one a few weeks ago, but still wasn't as bad as it could have been.  I wanted to quit at mile 9 and then again at mile 17.  But I kept pushing myself to persevere through the run and I'm so glad I did.  My goal is to finish the challenge feeling *mostly* good.

Are you running marathon weekend? How's your training going?

December 2017 -Goals

It's hard to believe it's December already.  The holiday decorations are up, the shopping list is getting checked off and the holiday baking has begun.  Before I get too busy tackling all that December has to offer, I thought I'd reflect on some goals that I want to accomplish this month...because why wait until January to set new goals.

Continue to grow my travel agent business:  Making the leap and trying something new is scary!  I've been putting a ton of effort into building my base as a travel agent.  My goal for December is to keep putting in the work and grow my clientele.  Want to book a trip?  Just e-mail me at kellyp@magicaladventurestravel.com While I love booking Walt Disney World vacationsI also book other vacations too!

Grow blog and Facebook following:  Hand in hand with the previous goal, I'm trying to get my agency and blog out there.  You can help by following me on Facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/KellyPwithMagicalAdventuresTravel/ and by sh…

Mobile Order at Walt Disney World

Every Disney parks fan has pet peeves.  These are the things that make you absolutely crazy when touring a Disney park.  For me, it's when people wait in line FOREVER at the quick service restaurants and then still don't know what they want when they get to the register.  When you've had enough time to basically memorize the menu, you should be able to place an order quickly.  And yet, this seems to be a challenge for many visitors.

Enter mobile order, one of the greatest Disney parks inventions.  You can place your food order via the My Disney Experience app from anywhere in the park and then when you arrive to your food location, all you have to do is tap "I'm here" and they will start to prepare your food.  You'll get a notification when the food is ready and pick it up at the mobile order window.

This was an amazing time saver at Satuli Canteen The caveat is this: you need to pay with a credit card in order to use the service.  You can't use dining…

Magic Kingdom
Note: Anna and Elsa used to meet at Princess Fairytale Hall in Fantasyland, but they no longer meet there.
·Mickey’s Royal Friendship Faire Castle Stage Show -In this recent addition to Magic Kingdom, Anna, Elsa, and Olaf join forces with tons of Disney characters to celebrate friendship.While I’ll always have a soft spot for Dream Along with Mickey, this show is also a lot of fun.It features characters from The Princess and the Frog, Tangled, and Frozen interacting with classic Disney characters.Plus, the signature song is super catchy!

·Festival of Fantasy Parade -This parade is one of my favorites that Disney has created.Anna, Elsa, and an animatronic Olaf are on the back of the first float on this p…

Week in Review -Dopey and Thanksgiving

Training for a mammoth challenge like Dopey during the holidays is a challenge.  The time commitment to Dopey training is significant and when you combine the training with the added time commitment of holiday events and you start to wonder where all the hours in your day ran off to.  It was that way for me this week.  At least, I didn't have a super long Dopey training run scheduled.  Otherwise there was not way I'd be able to get it all done.

This week in review:

Monday: 5 miles

Tuesday: 7.1 miles

Wednesday: 10 miles

Thursday: 8 miles

Friday: REST DAY

Saturday: 9 miles

Sunday: 7 miles

Weekly Total: 46.1 miles

In a week that's focused on gratitude I'm thankful for you, the reader and the ability to keep running all these miles.  We're under 40 days to go until the start of Dopey and I can't believe it's almost here!

How was your Thanksgiving?
