“A person should set his goals as early as he can and devote all his energy and talent to getting there. With enough effort, he may achieve it. Or he may find something that is even more rewarding. But in the end, no matter what the outcome, he will know he has been alive.” - Walt Disney

Wedding Bells and Mickey Motels!

In just a few short hours, we're headed off to L.A.!  A good friend of mine from college is getting married there on Saturday, so we're flying out to be part of the festivities.  And, of course, what would a trip to L.A. be without sneaking in a day at Disneyland?  That's right, we're going to visit the original "House of Mouse" on Sunday!  And not only are we doing
Disneyland, but we're also squeezing in some time at Disney's California Adventures.  Then we're off to the airport on Monday morning to head home.  We're staying in a motel right across the street from the main entrance to maximize our time in the parks - nothing fancy, but it's a place to rest our heads.  (In planning this trip, we realized how spoiled we've gotten by staying on property at WDW).  It's gonna be a quick trip, but a great one - I can't wait!
Had a bit of a schizophrenic run this evening.  After a false start trying to run my normal intervals and feeling like my lungs were going to explode, I switched to an interval-on-the-fly pace of very slow jogging mixed with walking.  That way I still got to move my legs without overworking my lungs.  So I did manage to get some running in!  Nothing great, but not bad considering I'm still coughing quite a bit.

Today's stats:
  •  3 miles; 0:48:02 min; 16:01 min/mi avg. pace


  1. Have fun! WE LOVED DL! It's so much more compact than WDW and it's easier to get around and see everything without feeling too rushed! Have a great trip!! :0)

  2. oooh have fun at the wedding and Disneyland. When I was little we would go there all the time but we moved when I was 7 so I don't remember to much of it but I really want to go back

  3. We had a great time!!! I'll include some trip highlights in my post tonight. My mom's a native Californian, so we went to DL a lot when I was growing up, but have spent much more time at WDW in the last 10-15 years, though we have been to DL a few times. Have only been to DCA twice, though, so it was fun to see the changes there!
