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 vacations I 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 sharing this blog with all your running and Disney friends.

Practice Italian once a day: I took three semesters of Italian in college and absolutely loved it.  I've been trying to keep up with it on Duolingo, but it takes daily practice.  I've already put in my 10 minutes today and I'm going to try and do at least that much each day during December.

EMBRACE THE TAPER: I am the worst at tapering.  I get moody and irritable and stressed out and generally not all that pleasant to be around.  My last long run (20 miles) for Dopey is in the middle of December and then the taper begins.  I'm going to try and embrace the taper this time around and use that extra time to make the holidays a little extra magical for those around me.

What do you want to accomplish this month?

Rochester Half Marathon -Race Recap

This past weekend, I participated in the Rochester Half Marathon.  This is Fleet Feet's premiere event of the season and it encompasses the 5K and Kids Marathon on Saturday and the Half and Full Marathons on Sunday.  It is also the final leg in the four seasons challenge...thank god that's done!

We left a little late on Saturday but were able to get to packet pickup with about half an hour to spare.  I wish it ran a little later than 4:00PM for those out of town.  I picked up my bib and my race shirt and we headed to our hotel for the night.  I did chuckle at this sign outside of the expo:

The taper crazy is real, folks!
Before I knew it, race time was here! The race starts at Maplewood Park on the north side of Rochester and finishes at Frontier Field.  Parking is at the finish line and there are shuttles to the start.  The school bus shuttles were well-run and plentiful.
I arrived at the start line with about an hour to go before race start.  There were a ton of selfie statio…
