How I’m Going to Finish this Race Standing: My Race Day Plan!

Getting this personalized race day plan was a big reason why I went to the nutritionist in the first place. I’m excited I’m now at the point where I can start training with it! This plan is how I will be able to finish the race feeling good, and not like death. 13.1 miles is hard enough…

Nutrition Goals: Round 2!

Bringing the right food helps considerably with a post-work run. The difference is so significant in fact, I had to figure out how to deal with the problems that had stopped me from doing this before.

More importantly though – The first official RunDisney Princess Half Marathon 2018 info email came through today!!!! It says…
