Teal Ribbon 5K -Recap

On Sunday I was able to participate in the Teal Ribbon 5K.  This event is hosted by Caring Together Inc..  It aims to raise awareness of ovarian cancer and raise funds for research for an early detection test as well as develop more effective treatment options for women with recurrent ovarian cancer.

The highlight of this event is the walk that accompanies it.  The majority of participants were partaking in the walk, but the 5K was well-attended too.

The course was 2 loops around Washington Park, starting and finishing at the Washington Park Lake House.  The course had a few mild inclines, but overall was a fast course with nice scenery.  I was running at a good pace and felt good for the majority of the race.  I must have been feeling pretty good since I won the women's race.  It was too bad that the course was a little short, because this definitely could have been a PR race for me.  According to my watch, my finish time was 20:03 and my official finish time was 20:05.

I haven't run a 5K in awhile.  It was nice to get back out there and tackle this shorter distance.  It's still not my favorite distance (that's either the 10K or the Half Marathon) but I don't hate it as much as I used to.  It's nice to have a race that doesn't take up a whole day or a whole weekend!

Toy Story Land at Disney's Hollywood Studios

After much anticipation, Toy Story Land at Disney's Hollywood Studios is finally open!  The more information I read and pictures I see, the more excited I am (the opening day crowds, not so much).  Originally, I was not super excited about this land coming to Hollywood Studios (though I know that the park needed something for the younger kids).  However, now that it's finally completed, I can't wait to go!
Some of the favorite things we love about Pixar Place are still going to be present. 
Ever interacted with these guys? They are so much fun! Fan favorite Toy Story Mania is still around so you can still play and try to beat your record.  I still haven't figured out how to beat Nicole.  I'm always leading until the final round and then I never win. It's maddening :) Plus there are two new attractions to enjoy: Slinky Dog Dash & Alien Swirling Saucers. I have to admit, I wasn't too excited for either attraction and Nicole and I discussed skipping them …

Storybook Character Dining to Debut at Artist Point at Disney's Wilderness Lodge

I'm so excited about today's update!  Character dining is coming to Disney's Wilderness Lodge.  This winter, Snow White, Dopey, Grumpy, and the Evil Queen will welcome guests to dine with them at Artist Point. 
Information is limited at this time, but we do know that it will be a prix fixe menu with shared appetizers, a delicious entree and dessert.  We're still eagerly waiting for information on the opening date, menus, and how many dining plan credits this experience will require.  However, I immediately thought of my fellow Dopeys when this information was released.  How great would this be as a celebration meal after completing the Dopey Challenge?
What do you think? Are you excited for this option?
