8 Miles, 17 Years of Marriage, and the Epcot Food and Wine Festival

What do these have in common - all things that were a part of my past week!

Running - I ran 3 easy miles on Friday morning, which felt wonderful. Today, my long run day, I did 5 miles at a fairly easy pace - running with my hubby...which leads to...

17 Years - On Saturday my husband I I celebrated 17 years of marriage! To celebrate we went to Epcot to the....

Food and Wine Festival - At this event, the entire World Showcase is turned into a big food and wine party. There are booths from countries from all over the world featuring a several native food dishes as well as wine. After two laps around the "world" I was feeling pretty happy. There was no need to make dinner reservations - we ate on the fly. We ended the evening with Epcot's "Illuminations" fireworks show! Although I had a bit more to drink than I have had in a long time, I felt good enough this morning for my 5 miler - so all in all, a great weekend!!! :-)

Happy Anniversary!

I went to the Food and Wine Festival with my sister a few years ago. It was awesome! I hope you had a lamb chop at the Australia tent. If not, you must next year!

Congratulations! That is awesome. Much love! :)

I am very curious how you are going to maintain your "marathon self" over the next 9+ weeks until Disney. Do tell! What's the plan?!?

Maybe I'll want to maintain MY marathon self for something in the near future... who knows!

Congratulations on your anniversary!

I listened to several of your podcasts while running my 12 yesterday. I am running Disney as my third marathon. I am so excited!

Keep the podcasts coming!

Good for you. Congrats on 17 years. I can only hope, that in these times of quick and easy divorce, that me and my wife last 17 years. Thanks for the inspiration.

17 years - that's amazing! And still running side by side. Well done both of you. What an achievement. As for doing 2 marathons so close - wow girlfriend. Total respect. What IS your strategy? Planning geek wants to know..
