You know that feeling when you think you are going to be super sad about something, but when in reality you are like…Thank GOD!! Well, that’s how I felt today when the news finally broke that in 2018 runDisney Disneyland races will be going on hiatus. It’s not that I’m not sad to see them go. I would have been happier if runDisney cut a
Oh, yes it is. I have tumor. Another tumor. I actually had this tumor for a couple of years, even before I had found the tumor in my left breast (see Cancer of 2013). I found this tumor in my salivary gland in 2009. Alarmed, I visited an Ear Nose and Throat doctor. He examined me and told me not to worry. To let it

The 3rd race of the 2016 Walt Disney World Marathon weekend was the WDW Half Marathon. This was also the 3rd race of the 3rd annual Dopey Challenge and 1st race of the 11th annual Goofy Challenge.
