Exciting News!!

I have exciting news!!! As you all know, I’m a huge Disney fan. Like completely obsessed. I talk about it at least once a day. I love learning and reading new things about anything involving Disney. So when I had the opportunity to become a contributor for a Disney blog, I had to jump on it!! There’s a blog known as WDW FanZone that is run from WordPress. There’s a family of contributors that all write about anything Disney every month. I also follow this blog on twitter, and this past week the man who runs the site, Stuart Sternberg, tweeted a message looking for anyone interested in becoming a contributor! I immediately responded and got in contact with Stuart. He said he liked what he saw here on my blog and offered me the opportunity to join their family of writers! So that’s right folks….yours truly is one of the new contributors for WDW FanZone!! I’m so excited about this opportunity!!! I’ve already started making a list of topics I want to write about. For right now I only need to write one article per month, so this is definitely manageable. I’ll be re-blogging my posts I do there on this blog too, so keep your eyes open! My first topic will be posted around the end of May.

I also have more exciting news!! I mentioned in my last post that I was beginning to train for a half marathon. Well, I’m almost positive that this half marathon will be happening for me! Only downside…I have to be ready in about 9 weeks. Tough, but not impossible. I completed all my scheduled runs for last week, so I’m off to a good start. I just need to figure out my shoe problems and I’ll be all set. The exciting thing about this half marathon?? It’s in Seattle. We have friends that live in Seattle, so we would be staying with them. This half marathon is part of a series of runs put on by a company called Rock n Roll Marathon Series. They seem awesome. Live bands play at every mile during the race, and there is a concert at the end! And you get these amazing rock n roll themed medals for completing the races. You even get bonus medals if you complete 2+ of their events within a year. I’m always up for a challenge so my goal is to complete 3 half marathons by October with this series. This would earn me not only the 3 race event medals, but an additional 2 awesome medals for completing multiple races. I can’t pass this up. It’s just too awesome. I never thought I would like running so much. But I’m so happy I do. I feel such a great feeling of accomplishment every time I cross the finish line or run my farthest distance. I may not be the fastest person out there, but I finish every race I do. And I enjoy every minute of it 🙂
