    I found your blog after searching for some inspiring message about running and pink. Thank you for your blog. You are exactly the kind of inspiration I need, a real person doing really hard things in order to live a better life. Congrats on the weight loss and a 4 mile trail run too. Wow- you are my hero.

    This January, 2011, my cousin Dawn & I decided to start training for the 2012 Princess 1/2 marathon. We both love the idea of wearing Pink, Tiaras and Disney.

    Neither of us have ever run before for racing. My previously running includes the day after Thanksgiving shopping and I want those shoes first. At 40 something, we both want/need to live a healthier lifestyle with a balance between work, marriage, and life.

    Eating organic is so expensive. How do you afford it? I’ve been reading the Jillian Michaels “Master your Metabolism” and I like her philosophy that if it doesn’t grow in the ground or have a mother it should not go in your body. What are your thoughts?

    Running: We are using the Sports Medicine Council, University of British Columbia’s Medical School, walk/ run method to train. This encourages you to alternate between running 1 minute then walking 1 minute. It is supposed to help prepare and protect your joints, bones and body for the compression required by running. We are using the 13 week beginner program to run a 5K by mid-summer, then we will switch to the 26-week program for the 1/2 marathon.
    What are your thoughts on preparing for races?

    Keep up the good work.
    From another Pink Runner.

    Robin-Thanks for stopping by. You will just love running at Disney and the Princess 1/2 weekend is so much fun. Im planning to run it in 2012 also! It’s so motivating to run/walk with so many awesome ladies! This year since my focus is weight loss I am just doing the Royal Family 5K but I am pretty excited for Princess weekend anyway. Best of luck with your training!

    Disney Running is working with Jeff Galloway who also does the run/walk intervals you are describing. It’s and excellent way to finish a long race. You can go to

    http://espnwwos.disney.go.com/events/rundisney/run-disney-training-consultant/

    to learn more about his partnership at Disney. He was one of the speakers at the race expo we attended before the Wine and Dine 1/2 last year and it was really neat to hear him speak.

    My personal philosophy is to prepare as best you can and then have fun at the event. I know I will never ever be a “front of the pack” finisher so I am careful to just set my own goals and not base my success against what someone else does or how quickly they finish. 🙂

    In terms of organic foods, its funny you mention that, I am writing a post about how to shop organic on a budget. There are certain items I am particular about and others not so much.

    I am so glad you stopped by to say hello! 🙂

    Sara-

    Hi! You run such an inspirational blog! I wanted to reach out and tell you about an all natural supplement that helps me not only have more stamina for works out but also loose extra pounds! TA-65 is an all natural supplement (almost like a vitamin) that reverses the aging process in our bodies. It’s amazing! I have the energy for my runs that I did when I was 20 and my metabolic rate is off the charts! Check it out at http://www.rechargebiomedical.com/blog/
