So, I’m not a writer and I’ve never really felt a need for a blog. Two main factors played into my decision to dip my toes in the water with this. The first is easy, I’m crafty (knit, sew, general craftiness) and I do a lot of DIY projects around my house. People often ask me how I did stuff so I figured it’d be cool to have a place to explain projects with tutorials.
The second factor is a little more complicated. I’m currently training to do the RunDisney Dopey Challenge in Jan 2015 and have the Tower of Terror 10 Miler and Wine & Dine half on deck first. There are so many awesome blog reports of past events but most of the runners all seemed so dang fast. I hate running and am slow (I’ll do another post later about how a run hater got roped into Dopey). At this point I know I can cover the mileage and generally can beat any mental blocks, but being a slow runner and seeing the fast times in the blogs still occasionally messed with my head. I figured I couldn’t be the only one so think of this as info for the slow boaters like me.
