Eat My Pixie Dust.

I’ve been following Run Disney’s clues for their latest race for a month now. After being completely confused and waiting for the day that they announced the big reveal- it happened! Yesterday, the new race was added to the schedule and registration officially began. What is the new race?

A Tinker Bell Half Marathon! How amazing is that?! Of course there is the controversy about it being another gender specific race. But, when it comes down to it- who doesn’t love a pint-sized pixie who carries around pixie dust and flies from a castle every night? I just wish this race was in Disney World instead of Disneyland. Mainly because it’s less expensive to travel from Toronto to Orlando than flying TO to Cali.  If it was at WDW, I would have already signed up just so I could wear wings and look like this when I’m running:

And of course to add another Disney inaugural race to my resume. Anyone wanna run it with me?! Check out all the details HERE!

Cuts Like A Knife.

Yesterday I went on a date to see my plastic surgeon. OK, so it wasn’t a date but it felt like one because I brought her flowers to say “Thanks for fixing my face!” After a loooong wait in the waiting room (reading, checking e-mails, reading blogs, playing brick breaker…etc) I finally got in to the room where I would wait again until my doctor came in. It’s just like Disney World really. You wait in one room and move along the line and you feel like you are somewhere different because there is a new look to where you are but essentially- it’s just another waiting room. After all that I got some great news! My 13 stitch scar on my nose has been healing beautifully minus the little bit of scar tissue that has caused a bump where the end of the stitches were but lucky for me- I get to say goodbye to the little guy. After spending a glorious nine months with it (just like a baby in the womb) it’s getting cut off! Wahhhhoooooo! Next week actually. It’s another little surgery but it won’t be as bad as getting the basal cell carcinoma removed and then 13 stitches. This time it’s just those dreadful freezing needles (lets hope it’s not 10 this time) a little cut and 2 stitches. And then I will be sporting a nice band-aid on my nose maybe decked out with pearls? And accessorized with two little stitches! Amazing! I can’t wait. And honestly, the bump really isn’t THAT big. But to me- it feels ginormous. Make-up can cover a scar but it can’t hide a bump. So, I’m bumping the bump next Friday!

As for that nike+ I figured out that I just have to “Link it.” Obviously, right? Ohhhhh Siobhan!

It’s weight training and stretching for tonight and a run tomorrow. Perfect.

The Happiest Race On Earth.

I am almost positive that I have made (wait for it)…

The Date: October 2nd, 2010.
The Destination: Walt Disney World.

Amazing, right? What better place to run your first half than the place where dreams come true? Not to mention the sweet hardware and partying that comes along with it! You run from Disney’s Wide World of Sports, through the Animal Kingdom, then through the Hollywood Studios, and finishing in Epcot where you will take part in a Wine & Dine for all the runners!

I think this could be the one.
