To all who come to this happy place..hello and welcome! Im Nynke (Ninka) and I am a full fledged RunDisney and Sparkle Skirt addict*.
My passion for the Mouse and everything Disney started at a very young age but my love for running only began in 2013. I was in a dark place. I was overweight, ridiculously inactive, and had an unhealthy relationship with food (eating your feelings anyone?). My only option was to make a life change and a drastic one at that – Enter the magic of Disney!
I signed up for the 2013 Expedition Everest Challenge 5km and slowly began training for what seemed to be the farthest distance EVER. I literally couldn’t run for 90 sec without needing a break or loosing my breath but I stuck with it. I did make it through that 5km (it wasn’t pretty though) then set my sights on a 10km, followed by a half, and most recently a full marathon.
Running has given me a new lease on life. I’m happier, healthier, and stronger than I have ever been. Plus it gives me an excuse to wear copious amounts of sparkle and brightly coloured running outfits – what more could a girl ask for??
Join me on my running adventures and my path to healthier living – i’ll share with you the accomplishments, the struggles, and all the tips and advice for everything you need to know to train for your next race!
