About Me

Hey there!  I'm Andrea.  I'm a first grade teacher, huge Gator fan, bookworm, Disney fanatic, popcorn addict and runner.  It's hard to believe the runner part.  I HATED running with a passion until about 2011!

It all started when Kory, my now husband, proposed to me.  He proposed at The Spectacle of Dancing Lights at Hollwood Studios on December 19, 2010.  We decided not to wait too long to get married at set our wedding date for our 5 year anniversary on June 11, 2011.  My matron of honor, Cori and I decided to start running to get in shape for our wedding and never looked back!

Kory and I got married at Disney World.  It was a complete fairy tale come true.  I loved every little thing about it!

We also have a yorkie named Bella.  She is completely spoiled.  I can't help it.  She's our only baby--for now! 

I also love to travel.  In fact, in the summer of 2012, I ran in six different cities in six weeks--Orlando, Jacksonville, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Denver, and Hilton Head.  So much fun!

 I only wish I had started this blog sooner!


  1. Hi Andrea,
    Just wanted to say great blog! I have also started running, LOVE Disney, and am a Disney Bride. I just started my blog a few days ago. Hope I can get it as nice as yours!

  2. Been enjoying your blog. We are also a Disney Fairy Tale Weddings couple that is obsessed with runDisney, well all things Disney really! My husband is a Nole, so I hope we can all get along if we meet at an upcoming race. :)

  3. Hi Andrea!

    Once upon a time, I followed (but never commented) on your disboards thread from your wedding. I was looking at it today to refer a friend to your bachelor party and found this! I love how much we kind of have in common. I've always despised running; but started after being a cheerleader for friends running all the disney races. We've started at the same time and run a lot of the same races! Good Luck with Glass Slipper this weekend! (I will be there; but walking both races due to an injury a week and a half ago!) Just wanted to say Hi!


    1. Hi! I'm glad to help with bachelorette parties ideas! And good luck this weekend!! If you see me, say hi!

Participants of all ages and abilities will have the opportunity to race through an exciting 3.1 mile course in Baldwin Park featuring bubble, squirt gun and quack zones...all while wearing an inflatable duck-shaped pool float around their waist! We are looking to feature our 5K run on the blogs and websites of local Orlando running blogs. We were wondering if featuring our 5K on your website might be something you are interested in. Thank you for reading and we hope to be hearing from you soon!

  5. I just want to say Thank You to everyone who supported me through the years. My name is Manuel Franco, 24, New Berlin, Wisconsin. My story of how I won the Powerball lottery of $768.4M is a bit of a tale. I have been playing Powerball tickets for 6 years now since I turned 18. I bought my first ticket on my 18 birthday. I was feeling very lucky that day because I had contacted Dr. Odunga to help me with the winning Powerball numbers. I really had that great great feeling that I looked at the camera wanting to wink at it. I only did a tiny part of it and trusted him. He gave me the numbers after I played a couple other tickets along with it for $10. I checked my ticket after the winnings came online and saw the numbers were correct including the Power play. I screamed for about 10 minutes because it felt like a dream. I had won $768.4M. This happened in April, 2021. You can check my winning testimony with the lottery officials just with my name search. Thank you Dr. Odunga. Well, his email is odungaspelltemple@gmail.com and you can also call or Whats-app him at +2348167159012 so you guys can contact him

  8. THIS IS NOT A JOKE. TRUST GREAT DR JOHN SOCO. My names are Zander Schumm from United States. Great Dr JOHN SOCO is really powerful and knows how to do his job perfectly. If not for him i could not imagine what would have happened. My ex was always picking up an argument with me and was always beating me. He started acting strange and funny and left me for no cause for another girl. I thought all hope was gone. I searched for help on the internet and i came across Great Dr JOHN SOCO. I saw so many testimonies about him. I was delighted and i contacted him on his email and told him what was going on. He laughed and assured me to calm down that he will help me and that my ex will come back begging me. He did his work and cast the spell for me and in 2 days time, my ex came apologizing just as he told me. Today we both live together and we are even more in love than how we use to be before he left. Contact the Great Dr JOHN SOCO for your own help. You can contact him on: Email:Drjohnsoco@gmail.com
