Road to My 1st Marathon! (Week 9)

This week me and my family were on a week vacation cruising along the Mexican Riviera.  We had a great week relaxing and spending time with our family.  I was excited to try the running track they have on the top deck of the boat.  And I actually did use it twice while I was there.  I have every intention of running 3 days but we are on vacation and I wanted to sleep in.  Back to their running track...  I found out that to run a mile you have to go around 5 times!  On the first day, I wasn't sure if I would even make 3 miles.  So I ran and ran and I actually did the 5 miles I intended to run.  Twice!

This week's training mileage: 10 Miles

Monday: Ran 5 Miles
Tuesday: Rest
Wednesday: Rest
Thursday: Rest
Friday: Ran 5 Miles
Saturday: Rest
Sunday: Rest
 
7 Weeks until the big day!

Mommy & Trevor Date Night - A Disney Night

Trevor & I started out summer with a great night!  We went to Disneyland and California Adventure.  It was a great night.  We started our night with the Celebrate! A Street Party Parade.  We love parades!

We then ventured to Toon Town for a ride on Gadget's Go Coaster.  We love this fun roller roaster.
Wheeee!!!

One of the main reasons we went to Disneyland was for Fantasmic!  And we saw it!  After Gadget's Go Coaster, we headed towards Rivers of America. We were lucky and found a great spot near the Haunted Mansion.  It was awesome!  Trevor was a bit scared when it got all dark and spooky sounding.  But we saw it and I was so excited.  I think even more excited than Trevor.

Waiting for Fantasmic!

All the Disney Characters

After Fantasmic! we headed our way out of Disneyland and towards California Adventure.  I heard from one of Disney's cast members that World of Color was having 3 showings of their water show.  So we took a risk and headed to California Adventure.  And it was worth it.  We saw the 10:15 pm show from the side view, which was ok.  We saw the beautiful water show.  We happen to still be in the area and got to see the 11:15 pm World of Color show from a front view from Ariel's Grotto.  It was beautiful!  It was a perfect way to end our night!  Click here to see a clipse of World of Color.
