My Disney Sidekicks and an Update!

This weeks Wednesday theme is Disney Sidekicks. I think I may have taken this a little out of contexts as most people probably think of Sidekicks as Characters that hang out with one another.

Well my Disney Sidekicks are my mom and sister. ( so I guess maybe we are characters that like to hang out with each other) I have spent more time with these two ladies at Disney than anyone else. My sister and I have done a ton of "just sisters" trips, we've done several "girl trips"  and I've even done just a me and mom "mother daughter trip".  
This picture makes me laugh! This was the first race my mom and I had ever run. You can tell we are newbies because look how high we put our race bib! However, this was NOT Lacey's first race! Shame on her for letting us all look like this!

This was one of my proud sister moments as I presented my sister with her first Marathon Medal during one of our many "sister trips".

This was a "Me and Mom" trip circa 2010!

If you are a regular reader of our blog than you know that I am gearing up for my next "girls only trip" with these ladies for the Princess Half Marathon weekend!

I think everything is pretty much in place. I've helped my mom put the finishing touches on her race outfit. I can't wait to show you all pictures of them!

*Update: If you have been following along, then you may know that I have been having terrible IT band pain. I made a PT appointment on Monday morning for Feb 3. I was in terrible pain on Monday night to the point were my whole body couldn't even function. I ended up sleeping with ice packs on my legs and that seemed to help. On Tuesday I made an appointment with a Sports Chiropractor who performs Active Release Therapy (ART). Thanks Kristy and Heather for both suggesting this method. Thanks to all of you who have offered suggestions and well wishes. They don't go unappreciated! I have my Chiropractor appointment today. Hopefully I have good news to report later this week!

Thank You to Deb at Focused on the Magic for hosting the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop!

  3. Awesome photos Meranda and I love your take on the sidekicks theme, it totally works! I think it is pretty special that you, your sister and mama can have such incredible times together, doing what you love. My daughter and I have taken two "mommy and me" trips to our Happy Place and I will cherish those memories forever! Good luck with the race and I will say a pray for your speedy recovery..

  17. I am so glad to hear you are doing ART!!! That has saved me from knee pain, tight hamstrings (like couldn't even run a block tight hamstrings) as well as plantar fasciitis. It sounds like your in good hands, and hoping for some good news!

    1. I actually couldn't do ART at the first session. He said it would be way too painful! I'm gonna work it out some more and then go back on Friday for another session!

  23. I love that you run with your family!!! My cousins are runners and live in SoCal but I haven't done a race with them yet, and my immediate family (mom, dad, brother) don't do ANYTHING athletic except watch football. I'm so sorry about your IT band issues. :( I sympathize with your leg pain. I used ART for my shoulder impingement. I think it can help, but the cost was too much for me, so I learned some tricks and try to do the exercises at home. Hope all your treatments help!
