Thinking Out Loud Thursday

Happy Thursday folks!  We thought today would be a god day to do another random thinking out loud post, so here goes!

Run Disney

We are at Disney and the Health and Fitness Expo is on the agenda today!

Since the day we booked this trip, we have switched our reservation to three different resorts.  We were all set to try a new resort, but then an old favorite opened up at the last minute and we couldn't resist.  We like being at monorail resorts because of the easy access to things. We plan to try a new resort on a future visit but a race weekend is not the time we want to try something new (at least resort wise).

Speaking of trying something new, we will look to do at least three new things (hopefully) that we have not done before. The great thing about Disney is that no matter how many times you go, you can always have a different experience.  One thing we are looking forward to is relaxing at Typhoon Lagoon after the race on Sunday. We hadn't been here in about 15 years. I hope the weather cooperates.

I have no expectations for any of these races this weekend. I am of course not real worried about the 5K but I will say that I feel like I am in worse shape now than I was when I ran the marathon last month. For the 10K and Half, I will admit I am worried!  -M

I have been consistently applying Tiger Balm to my leg and I think it's working. I can actually run now!  But to be fair, I don't know if it is the Tiger Balm or the fact that I have been resting it. I hope I am healed, but I guess I'll find out soon enough! -L


When you go on vacation do you like to visit the same restaurants and resorts (because you know you already enjoy them) or do you make a point to always try something new?

  5. Hope you ladies have a great time shopping at the expo today! I also try to push myself to try out new things on each trip to Disney. Since I have yet to go on every ride or see every show, I try to check another one off each time I visit Disney. Believe it or not, I have never been on the People Mover! I should definitely add that to our list for our March/April Disney trip.

  6. Have a great time this weekend! When we travel, we like to try different places, in general we don't like to do the same things twice since there is so much variety out there, but there is also comfort in knowing what to expect by going to the same places!

    1. It's hard to say. Usually location and price are the main considerations for me. Once you get inside the room, a hotel is just a place to sleep and store your stuff. As long as it's clean and safe, it really doesn't matter. Have a great trip!

  9. I usually always stay at the same place! I know I like it and why mess with a good thing? Heading down for the race tomorrow - can't wait!

  10. Good luck this weekend ladies:)
    I bet you have nothing to worry about, I am wishing you both GREAT runs, in all your races! So jealous, look at how many awesome races you've done this year already and it's only February:)

  11. I don't often visit the same place more than once. I like to change spots all the time which is why I would never buy a vacation rental place.

  12. I love Typhoon Lagoon and it is looking like the weather should be great for it on Sunday! Have a great time!!

  13. We do both. During our last Disney trip we stayed somewhere new and tried one new restaurant, but also ate at many of our favorite places. I wouldn't think Typhoon Lagoon would be very crowded, at least.

  14. If in doubt, always go with the familiar during a race weekend. I know there are many great hotels, but I do have favorites :)
