Checking In

As I’ve mentioned before, my job role at the church is shifting over the next few weeks. Through this transition, work has been extra busy for me and the blog has taken a little bit of a back seat. By the time June hits, my life should free up a little more, as my scope of work becomes more focused in one specific area.

However, there are several things I am looking forward to over the next month or so. What’s that, you might ask? Well, here you go…

  • TearDrop Half Marathon This Sunday, Rachel and I will be running one of the fastest half marathons in Georgia. The TearDrop Half Marathon takes place up in Chatsworth, GA, which is about 70 miles northwest of Atlanta. Apparently the last 7-8 miles are almost all downhill. I am hoping to get a solid race time that I will be able to use for corral placemats in future races. Rachel will also be going for a PR (personal record). Hopefully the weather will be nice! Recap/update coming after the race.


  • Disneyland Trip (Tinkerbell Half Marathon) Over Mother’s Day weekend, we will be heading back out to Disneyland for our 4th straight year of running a race on the West Coast. This year, we’re running the Tinkerbell Half Marathon. This one is specifically unique since we ran the Princess Half in February. If you run both of these specific races in the same calendar year, you get a special pink “Coast to Coast” medal. Rachel is very excited! We will be spending 5 days out in California. Looking forward to getting back out to one of our favorite places in the world!


  • Rachel’s Birthday On May 21st, Rachel hits the big 3-2. And while we don’t have any specific plans for her birthday weekend since we are going to be in California the weekend before, we will definitely celebrate this special occasion!
  • Walt Disney World Trip Finally, what would you expect…but another quick weekend trip down to Walt Disney World in early June! It actually will have been over 4 months between trips to Orlando by the time we get down there. Might be a record for us over the past few years. Haha! Anyway…we will be staying on property for the weekend and getting to see the new Pandora (Avatar Land) that is opening in Animal Kingdom just a week before we get there.


So there you have it. Lots to look forward to over the next 40+ days in the Whittaker household. 2 Half Marathons, 2 trips to Disney and 1 awesome birthday!
