One year ago today, I ran my first marathon (26.2 miles) at the most magical place on earth—Walt Disney World!

Keep dreaming.” It was that day that I made up in my mind that I was going to run my first marathon.
Disney has brought so much joy into my life along with so many wonderful friends. I can’t wait to pass this joy on to my children (one day). I am a believer! Dreams DO come true! It was that one little seed that was planted in my heart that helped me to achieve my “impossibles”. Through faith and determination I know I can achieve ANYTHING in life.

I can’t remember the last time I had so much fun on a “school night”! The older you get, the more you appreciate the times when your parents made you go to bed early to prepare for the next day. In our adult world, it’s called “work”. My HB and I attended our first basketball […]
