Running Mode

A quote from Mr. Walt Disney -All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.  The count down has begun!  In 136 days what will you be doing?  If nothing comes to mind, why not join me and thousands others as we embark on the 2013 Disney Half Marathon.  Check out Disney Run, there are a variety of races the whole family can enjoy from 5K, Half Marathon, Full Marathon, to the Goofy-which one will you choose?

.

With a little over 4 months to go, my training is in full gear.  To keep my discipline focused I picked up “Paula Radcliffe’s How To Run”.  The accomplished marathon and competitive runner knows a thing or two about the sport.  In addition to the book I came across a great app that helps manage my running-MapMyRun.  It logs in my mileage, overall time, average pace, and calories burned-love it!

I run to feel GREAT and to clear my head.  I LOVE the high I get from finishing a race-what’s your reason to run?

Enjoy and thanks for viewing!

Pictures, pictures, pictures-Apps to help share those images.

Here are two great Apps you should consider owning.  With so many Apps in the market it can be daunting  figuring out what’s good or not.  No worries-I am here to help.  My two go to Apps right now are:  Montage and Postagram Postcards.

Montage: Great app to help organize and creatively  display all the pictures you may have.

Cost: $1.99.  They do offer a Montage Lite that’s free with no text.

Details: With so many pictures taken today, organizing them is key and this App helps you do just that.  Create a montage of images in any arrangement you like, plus add text, play around with fonts and color.  So much fun and a lot easier and manageable than Photoshop, anyone can do this.

Here’s a sample of what I created from a trip I took recently to Laduree.

Postagram Postcards:  Take any image you love and send it via postcard.

Cost: Free.  However to mail a postcard the cost is $0.99 YES that’s it!

Details:  Mail out a personalized postcard with any image you have.  Insert the desired image, add a profile image, type in a greeting and send off-it’s that easy.  Bonus-image pops out and can easily be frame or displayed.

Here’s a sample of a postcard I recently sent out.

Love how these two Apps offer you endless creative options.  Use these Apps to capture great memories today and send them to the ones you love!

What Apps are you digging right now?

Wishing you and your families a wonderful Easter!
