Noticeably missing is the Tower of Terror from fall 2015.  In what would be its forth year, the RunDisney community is losing its shit at the absence of the fan favorite.

Spectating at the New England Half

I am SO running the @MillenniumRun New England Half next year!

Sunday marked the first time I was officially a spectator at a race!  I don’t think I have ever been at a race I wasn’t involved with in some capacity, so this was a whole new experience!  The race was the New England Half, put on by Millennium Running

Last night was my third lesson in my “adult stroke development class” and I have to say, I’m loving it.  Huge improvements already.  Class #1 and class #3 are like night and day.  Apparently I used to be really good at the backstroke and the breaststroke (who knew?)
