2014 Disney Princess Half Marathon & Expo Recap!

Happy Fitness Friday my lovelies! I’m so thankful for my short week, I’m not sure I would have survived without it! I’m still in full on Disney mode and unfortunately, I’m not at Disney World anymore. I’ll just continue reliving it by sharing pictures and stories with y’all! Today is the Fit for a Princess Expo and the Disney Princess Half Marathon recap!

The Expo
This year, the expo was back at The Wide World of Sports. Thank Goodness! Last year it was at Coronado Springs and let’s just say that it was a cluster! This year was way better. You picked your bib up and snapped a few pictures in one location…

…before heading into the larger area for shirt pick up and the expo itself! And of course we had to grab a picture with Cinderella’s mice turn men!

The expo was laid out great and wasn’t overly crowded. Like last year, we got there shortly after it opened for the day. This year it didn’t take over 20 minutes to get our t-shirts. Instead, there wasn’t even a line! The expo wasn’t overly crowded and we did a bit of browsing, but didn’t stay long since we were off to Universal!

Race Day
Our alarm clocks went off dark and early at 2:45am. I mean, some people don’t go to bed until that time after going out on a Saturday night. We quickly put on our tutus and attempted to look like we didn’t just roll out of bed.


By 3:30am, we were out the door and hopping on a bus to take us to Epcot. After a quick picture, Alison left to meet up with a friend from her running club while Ashley, Julie and I made the trek from Epcot {which is where the finish is} over to the start line. It’s about a 15 minute walk and gives you time to get excited and a little warmed up if you ask me! Unfortunately, we were all in different corrals, so after our stroll we split ways. {Note: if you do not sign up before December 1st, you are put in the last corral which is no fun if you’re faster than that!}

I was up in Corral D while Ali was in I and Julie & Ashley were in P…aka the last corral. They signed up too late to provide proof of time! Julie got in through raising money for Children’s Miracle Network and Ashley got her entry via a travel agent! Bummer for them since they can both finish in 2:30-2:40 easily!

I made friends with some random people in my corral and naturally took a few selfies before we were off! The race starts at 5:30am and my corral was going by 5:38am. Ashley and Julie didn’t cross the start until 6:40am…I was over halfway through my race!

Fairy God Mother sends each corral off with fireworks and a bipity bopity boo! The air on Sunday was thick and muggy. The humidity was at 100%, it was about 65 degrees and the fog was intense. You can see the mugginess in most of my pictures.

Despite the crummy weather, I actually felt great which is weird for this asthmatic girl. I think the magic of Disney just had me on a natural high and it held through the entire race! I hit the Magic Kingdom car entry way just past two miles. Of course, it’s still another 3 miles before you even enter the park! To think that we run the distance that cars drive and then people take a shuttle or ferry to get to the park is pretty funny.

Once inside the park, we ran straight down Main Street USA with Cinderella’s Castle in our sights! I stopped and asked a volunteer to snap a picture of me. She was the sweetest and said, “Of course! I’m here for you!” Make my day 🙂

Check out that fog!

After that picture, I ran right into Tomorrowland where I saw Buzz Lightyear with only 3 people in line! Ummm yes, I needed a picture with him immediately! My goal this year was to not take the race so seriously. Not to worry about my pace {I didn’t even have my Garmin!}, to run for feel, to have fun, take everything in and take as many pictures as possible!

With my goal of taking pictures in mind, I saw Prince Mickey shortly after Buzz. There was a bit of a line, but I said who cares and jumped in line! It only took about 5 minutes and was totally worth it. I got a picture with Prince Mickey and a great shot of the castle lit up from behind!

One of my favorite pictures of the weekend!

Then I ran through the castle and got a professional picture taken in front of the castle! Hoping it turns out good. The castle is just before the halfway point and personally give me a second wind every year. This year I wasn’t even winded despite the humidity, I felt amazing and still got that extra surge and felt like I was flying through the rest of Magic Kingdom. I was sure to take in everything!

As we exited the park, I knew there would be a princess in front of the castle float like there is every year. If the line wasn’t too long, I really wanted to get a picture. It was my lucky day, less than 10 people were in line so I got another quick break before a picture with Aurora and Prince Phillip!

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen that picture already! I Insta’ed it while I was running! The next few miles there were a few characters that I could have stopped for, but just didn’t really feel like it. I was on a roll! I did finally stop when I saw Genie especially since he had only 2 people in line…score!

A bit after mile 8, Luna had several signs and a cheer squad set up. They’re big sponsors of the Disney Princess race and created the most creative signs this year! I had to snap a few pics…

Around mile 10, I saw Mrs. Incredible aka Elastigirl with no line and knew I needed to jump in a picture with her. I need more practice posing apparently because she looks way more intense than me. I just look awkward…and I love it.

That was the last picture I took during the race. After Mrs. Incredible, there was a two mile stretch that consisted primarily of 3 very long over passes. Yay hills! The over passes have banked turns going up the hill which is killer on you feet and knees. Other than the pains on the turns, I felt just fine and powered up the hills with no problem. The toy soldiers from Toy Story always keep you motivated and get you to keep running when you may want to walk. My favorite quote he said when I ran by was “You chose to sign up for this. You wanted to run 13 miles. In fact, you PAID to do this so do it!” I loved it!

With a mile to go we find our way into Epcot where the crowds and enthusiasm picks up again. Runners are also just happy that there are no more hills at this point! In Epcot, there are a lot of twists and turns. At each turn you think you may see the finish line so I feels like the last mile goes on forever! Eventually, the finish line really does appear, I crossed, got some fairy dust and my medal! I love getting more bling to add to my collection!

I stopped my watch only during my wait for Prince Mickey. My official race finish time was 2:05:45. I was on pace to finish around 1:55 if I hadn’t stopped! It wouldn’t have been a PR, but it was definitely awesome considering the race weather conditions! Post race I had to wait a while before the girls joined me. I wandered around, watched the awards ceremony, called JP and woke him up bright and early, etc. When the girls joined me, the picture taking began!

Julie pit stopped at the medical tent and we snapped this one before she joined us. Yay A^3!

Then we got yet another fantastic picture of some of the best friends a girl could ask for! Then we high tailed it for the bus so we could get some food! Hey, a girls got to eat. Important things post race people!

It was a great race for all of us. I think Julie and Ashley are going to sign up earlier next year so they don’t have to take off in the last corral and dodge people for over half the race!

In case you’re interested, here are my race recaps from the previous 3 years!

Universal Studios aka Harry Potter World

Oh hello darlings! {In my most fancy British accent} I’m back, in action and have TONS to share with y’all! Seriously though. I can’t even believe that I’m back in Houston and Disney is already over. It’s slightly depressing and being back in the real world is just not cool. I want to continue being a 6 year old and play all day long! But I am a grownup and cannot. Instead, let’s just relive the past few days so I can pretend that I’m still in the most magical place on earth!

Let’s do a quick pit stop at our awesome room and then move on to a bunch of pictures from Universal Studios!

Our Room

Why yes, that is indeed at Pirate ship bed! Are you jealous? Julie surprised us and was able to book a special Pirate room instead of the traditional Caribbean room at the resort! There’s nothing better than sleeping in a mini Pirate ship, drawing the skull and cross bones curtains, watching tv upon some crates and storing your wine in a true wine barrel!

Our Resort
We stayed at the Caribbean Beach resort which is a moderate {middle tier} resort. We actually stayed here on our Disney trip 2 years ago! It was just as great the second time around. I actually prefer Caribbean Beach’s food court to Coronado Springs’ which is where we stayed last year!

We definitely took advantage of the Pirate themed pool and hot tub! Soaking our feet before and after the race was mandatory! We also had plenty of time to soak up some sun post race! I have tan lines again!

Universal Studios aka Harry Potter World
Let the insane amount of pictures begin! We actually started our Saturday morning at the Fit for a Princess Expo but I figured that would go much better with the race recap than Universal Studios! We made it to Universal by 11:00am and took advantage of Julie’s valet parking that comes with her season pass. Hello awesome. From there we naturally high tailed it to Hogwarts! But first we had to snap a picture with the conductor of the Hogwarts Express!

Next up was the ride inside of Hogwarts which is just as amazing as it was the last two years. I mean even the line is amazing! There are so many things to look at and snap pictures of! We only had a 20 minute wait and the line was in constant motion. If you do have to wait a while, they make it worth it at least!

“Lemon Drop!” About to enter Dumbledore’s office!
The Pensive

After the ride inside of Hogwarts we explored Hogsmead and rode the Dragon Challenge. The line was so short that we decided to ride both the Hungarian Horntail and the Chinese Firebolt!

The Goblet of Fire!

As per usual, we had lunch at The Three Broomsticks and even snapped a picture with one of the Wizards that works there!

Delicious foot was eaten and butterbeer was consumed 🙂

Soon it was time to venture off into the other lands of Universal. My second favorite is Jurassic Park, but I was a sad panda when the River Adventure ride was shut down. I was so excited to see the dinosaurs, mostly the velociraptors!!! I love them!

Oh and as you can see, ponchos were needed but not for long. There was a quick bout of rain after lunch and that was it. Considering there was a 60% chance of rain, I’d say that’s lucky. We think it kept some of the locals from coming so the lines were shorter!

Then we ventured through Cartoon land, Super Hero land {we rode The Hulk and Spiderman rides!} and Dr. Seuss land…

At some point in the day, we realized it was National Margarita Day…what better place to celebrate than Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville at Univeral?! Mango and Pink Cadillac margaritas were downed before heading back to the resort for dinner, feet time in the hot tub and bed! We had a 2:45am wake up call that we couldn’t miss!

Oh Universal, I’m ready to go back! Next year we plan to go to the other Universal Park to see the new Diagon Alley that they are building now. The plan is for it to be open in 2014!!!

So that was Day 1 {Saturday} of our #PrincessWeekend2014 adventure. Tomorrow I’ll have the expo and race recap…perfect for Fitness Friday! And let me tell you, this will be a good race recap. Lots of pictures were taken!!!

Have you been to Universal Studios Orlando? What’s your favorite part of the park?
Did you celebrate National Margarita Day?

Disney Sneak Peek!

So I’m still at Disney! I didn’t want y’all to think I disappeared so here are just a few shots that I’ve captured over the past 3 days!

Okay that’s all for now y’all! I’ll be back home tomorrow and more pictures will be soon to follow. I’m going to go play at Epcot now! TTFN, tata for now!

Happy Disney Day!!!

It’s official y’all…it’s Disney Day!!! That’s right, the girls and I are flying to the Sunshine State to see Julie and the Most Magical Place on Earth. Here’s proof…

If that’s not official proof, then I don’t know what is. I mean, today is the 21st and that means 0 days until I go to Disney World! All I need to do is make it through work today. A few clients, a little down time, teach a spin class and then I’m off and it’s time to go!!!
I’ve got my nails done, tutu prepped, tiara in place, bags packed and I’m ready to go! That being said, other than Disney excitedness, I don’t have many important things to say. So I’m going to leave you with these fun facts…
Disney animators like to hide classic characters into newer movies. Goofy and Donald Duck are in the opening scene of The Little Mermaid as members of the audience in King Triton’s concert!
Disney World has something called “Smellitzer” around the park to product certain smells in specific areas such as salt water around and in Pirates of the Carribean.
Simba is Swahili for lion and Bhalu (Baloo) is Hindi for bear.
The people behind the voices of Mickey and Minnie were married in 1991 and were married until his dealth in 2009.
Speaking of weddings, those of you with big deal coming up, if you send Micky & Minnie a wedding invitation they’ll send you a ‘Just Married’ pin. If you send an invitation to Cinderella & Prince Charming they’ll send you an autographed congratulatory certificate! Why didn’t I know this 4 years ago!!!
Walt Disney was presented with one normal sized Oscar and 7 smaller ones for Snow White and the Seven Dwarves in 1938.
Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando is about the size of San Francisco. And I’m about to be there!!!
Now try not to get overwhelmed and excited by all these fun facts. If you’re dying to know more, take a look at this site. 90 fun facts about Disney that you probably didn’t even know!

Have a wonderful weekend y’all! I know that I will! Queen of Hearts last year, Cinderella this year! Watch out Disney World, here we come!

Reebok ZQuick: Live with Fire!

The following post is sponsored by FitFluential LLC on behalf of Reebok. All opinions are those of A Balancing Act!

 
A few weeks ago, I was given the opportunity to work with Reebok to promote their new ZQuick running shoe. I was pumped from the get go when I saw that one of the athletes promoting their shoe was Aly Raisman! Take a look at this video just to see how awesome she is!
 
 
 
 
 
I loved the shoes from the moment I brought them out of their bag! The color is vibrant and the look is very sleek. There are several colors available for men and women that you can take a look at. Call me biased, but I like mine the best and I didn’t even get to choose. I guess Reebok just gets me. The Reebok ZQuick running shoes were inspired by hi-performance, Z-Rated tires; hence the unique tire-like soles. These outsoles provide control, traction and speed to enhance your speed and running performance. The unique design also allows the soles to flex and expand each time your foot strikes the ground for a smooth, natural run.
 
 
Taking my ZQuicks for a few spins around the track!
 
 
The bootie of the shoe is soft, flexible and no-sew. You don’t have to mess with a shoe tongue slipping to the side because it is locked in place. The lightweight, flexible fabric is breathable for your feet which is ideal in south Texas summers! The webbing on the outside of the bootie isn’t just for looks as it provides extra support and stability
 
 
Each time I take my ZQuicks out for a run, I find more things I like about them.
  • After several wears, they mold to the shape of your foot. I am worried that after some time they’ll stretch too much since I run on the outsides of my feet so badly. I haven’t experienced that yet though!
  • I originally worried about the flexibility of the fabric not allowing my feet to have the support needed when making turns or doing speed and agility drills. Again this hasn’t been a problem at all. While your feet have the ability to move, they are still secure in the shoe and feel great. You can see in the picture above that I’ve taken these around the track a time or two which required multiple turns per mile!
  • The lightweight feel is definitely different from my traditional distance running shoe. These lean more towards a sock-like feel than shoes.
 
Post 4 miler relaxing on the hammock!
 
 
One extra perk is that people are constantly complimenting my shoes and asking me where they’re from! They love the bright color. They love the look. These shoes really sell themselves! They fit their slogan #livewithfire! I wore them out to a half marathon last weekend and had everyone asking about them. If they’re speaking to runners just by their look then it looks like Reebok has targeted the right crowd! 
 
One thing I will suggest, don’t step in dog poop…it’s hard to get out of the bottoms 🙂
 
 
Have you tried any light weight running shoes?  
What did you think about the difference between them and your traditional running shoes?

Lazy Perfection

Monday, Monday, Monday. I’m glad Monday is here because it’s officially Disney week. I’m not glad Monday is here because I was completely content this weekend and would love for it to continue. Now I’m not going to pretent I did anything that exciting, but what’s a Monday without a weekend recap???

The highlights:
Saw Endless Love with my parents Friday night
Relaxed, laid in the sun and read all Saturday long
JP returned from Singapore early Saturday evening!
3.25 mile run Sunday morning
Errands and late brunch at Cyclone’s
Finally saw Frozen with Alison and Ashley Sunday night! I really wanted to see it before going to Disney World!
Like I said, nothing exciting and I’m totally okay with that. I wish it would continue. At least I’m one day closer to Disney World and seeing Julie! 
I really don’t have a lot to say today, so I’m just going to leave y’all with puppy pictures because they’re so stinkin’ cute!
Happy President’s Day y’all!

Valentine’s Friday Five!

Friday! Friday! Friday! Hooray! It’s been a long week and I’m really looking forward to this weekend! Not that I have anything that exciting going on. Oh well, it’s been a while since I linked up with Friday Five so today it is! And not only is it Friday, it’s Valentine’s Day. So hug someone you love and put a smile on your face even if you don’t care for the holiday. You at least love love right?
One. This guy.
He’s been in Singapore since last Friday. Needless to say I’m jealous. Granted it’s for work. But I’m jealous for two reasons…one…I would love to go see Singapore…two…work and Singapore stole my husband from me for a week. I miss him dearly and I’m so ready to have him back tomorrow!



Two. Surprise Flowers.
I’ll brag about JP really quick. He had these beautiful roses sent to me while he’s across the world! Surprise and Happy Valentine’s Day to me 🙂 He also scheduled a massage for me on Wednesday and had it paid for including tip, so I didn’t have to do a thing. Excellent Valentine’s gifts indeed. I’m a lucky gril.



Three. Weekends with the Timmers.
When the husband is gone, I tend to crash with my parents on Friday nights. I mean, I wake up at 4:00am, so I don’t stay up late or do much. Hanging out with my mom and dad is a pretty soild Friday night if you ask me. Of course, that means I’m totally crashing their Valentine’s date today. Looks like Daddy is going to have two Valentine’s this year! Maggie and Moose like hanging out at their grandparents too. Lots of room to run, play and sunbathe!




Four. Countdown to Disney.
I’m flying to Disney a week from today. Yup, I’m so excited. I’ve tried to keep my Disney related posts to a minimum after last year’s Disney explosion 🙂 This is my fourth year in a row to go to Disney for a girls weekend and each year it gets better and better. This year we’re doing Universal Studios, Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios and Epcot! We’re also doing a character lunch in Magic Kingdom, dinner at Animal Kingdom Lodge and of course the Disney Princess half marathon! One More Week! Plus Julie made us these awesome calendars…I took the picture last week…clearly!




Five. It’s Valentine’s Day!
Even if you don’t have a significant other, tell someone you love them. I’m thinking like mom, dad, sibling, friends…nont necessarily some stranger or a coworker or anything. That may be a little creepy. I hope that y’all all have a wonderful Valentine’s Day full of love and a great weekend!
Before I go, you can also find me over at Micah’s blog Unbashedly Me answering all of the fitness questions you know you want to ask! Head over to take a look for Fitness Friday!

So you want to run a half marathon…

Even though Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow and deemed 6 more weeks of winter, spring half marathon season is on the horizon. Many of you probably have your sights set on a race or maybe even have signed up already! March-June is a very popular time for half marathons and often, its many people’s first. When approaching the half marathon distance whether it be for the first time, tenth time or bazillionth time, you have a few options on how to get there:
  • Follow a training plan
  • Train with a running club
  • Wing it and show up on race day
Generally speaking, I don’t recommend going with option C. It’s a little overwhelming, exhausting and not a very good decision if you’re just getting started. I’m a big fan of option B, but not everyone is comfortable finding a running club or you already have a friend you’re planning to train with. Option A is the one I’m here to help you with. How to find a half marathon training plan! And better yet, how to follow it / customize it to fit your schedule.
 
Here are some of the most common half marathon training plans:

Hal Higdon
Galloway Method
Runner’s World
First Timers Plan from About.com

When selecting your training plan, you need to take a few things into consideration:

  • How many weeks until my desired half?
  • Are you a beginner? A few under your belt? There are different levels of plans.
  • Is there a specific method you want to train? Galloway teaches the run/walk method.
  • If this isn’t your first rodeo, do you have a time goal?
Choose your plan based on these questions. There are tons of plans you can find by searching the Internet. Find the right length and method of training that’s right for you. Find a program that can help you improve your pace, if you’re going for a time goal.
 
Once you know your goal race, figure out how many weeks you have until the race. For a first time half marathoner, 10-14 weeks will give you an ideal amount of training time to prepare you for the race. Generally 12-14 week plans are more common and allow you to ease into your mileage a bit more.
 
Now that you’ve determined how long you have to train and you’ve picked a plan, here are some tips and tricks to stick to it and help you improve!
  1. Keep your end goal in mind. You’re going to finish a half marathon!
  2. Take your rest days. These are here for a reason. Recovery is just as important as your workout. Recovery will help you become faster and stronger!
  3. Know that it’s okay to switch up days occasionally. If you’re supposed to run 3 miles on Monday and rest Tuesday, but you need a rest day Monday. Go for it and get your run in on Tuesday. Skipping a day every so often won’t kill you either.
  4. Cross training is important! While clearly running more often will improve your running, including cross training and strength training will improve your overall performance and help you avoid running related injuries.
  5. Don’t race your long runs. You weekend long runs are all about time on your feet. Your long runs should be 0:30-1:30 slower per mile than your goal race pace. You’re training your body to be running for an extended period of time. Running slowly on long runs will help to improve your time come race day.
  6. Make sure you get your long runs in. These are important, but if you’re sick or injured, skipping a week will be better than pushing through. If your long run is set for Saturday, it’s okay to switch days if it won’t fit into your schedule.
  7. HAVE FUN! Enjoy the training and the feeling of accomplishment as you scratch off another completed workout. You deserve to pat yourself on the back.
So there you have it. There are tons of plans out there. A different one for each individual style and needs. If you need help finding a plan or altering a plan to fit your lifestyle, feel free to reach out to me. I’m happy to help! I’m also available for training consultations if you’re looking for a more personalized training plan. E-mail me at acgougler@gmail.com for more information! And because no post is complete without a picture, here’s me after my very first half marathon!

Life in Perspective

Alright y’all, this hump day is going to get deep. A little bit different from my generally lighthearted, happy-go-lucky posts as of lately. I want to talk about perspective and life.

Yesterday I found out that an old family friend’s mom passed away. Her mom was not that old. Her mom was in good health {as far as we’re aware}. Her mom was a caring, giving, wonderful person who took care of me so many times growing up. And in the blink of an eye, she’s gone. Just like that. I am shocked and devastated.

It’s been years, years since I’ve seen their family. Growing up in Virginia, I saw them often. Our moms were dear friends and colleagues. We spent the night at each others home…even on school nights when one of our moms had to work the night shift at the hospital. After we moved to Texas, we continued to see each other once a year until the summer before my junior year of college. Then just like that, life got busy. We grew farther apart. We grew up. Our lives continued. We stayed in touch, but year after year, our phone calls to one another were more and more spread out. Despite the distance, they’ve always been a part of my family.

I think the hardest thing for me right now to come to terms with is that in perspective, life is so short. So many things happen. We spend most of our week at work or sleeping. We often have to push aside things we want to do or people we want to see. We have so many people constantly coming in and out of our lives. No matter how far apart you grow. No matter how bad someone hurts you. No matter what starts or ends a friendship/relationship. You will remember them. People leave a mark. We love. We lose. We rejoice. We grieve.

Life is full of ups and downs. It’s full of decisions and regrets. We’re bound to have highs and lows and make decisions, but I don’t want to have regrets. I don’t want to look back and say what if, what if. I want to believe that everything I do has meaning. I want to love hard. I want to believe in friendships. I want to enjoy life to the fullest because it can be taken from us so soon.

My heart aches for my friend. I wish that it wasn’t something so tragic that brought us together again. I want to be there for her and rekindle our lifelong friendship. Lifelong friends are rare. And right now, mine needs love, support and prayers. If y’all could pray for my friend, her mom and her entire family I would appreciate it so much.

So take the time to hug your love ones, appreciate what you have and put life into perspective. Life is too short. We only have one. So live it the way you want to and enjoy every moment.

{Happy-go-lucky Amy will be back tomorrow. Sometimes, you just got to let it all out. I know y’all have felt the same!}

These are my confessions

It’s been a good long while since my last confessions post! Some days you just need to let it all out there and I suppose today is one of those days 🙂

I confess…

…I actually like gas station coffee! Maybe not all gas station coffee but I like the one by my parents house and the one by my house. I guess I’m not too picky 🙂 That or those two stations just know how to make a good cup of joe!

…lately practically everything I wear is made of spandex. I swear it’s not all the fits 🙂

…I pick my tv shows based on things I can multitask during. I have a hard time just sitting and watching tv, thus TLC, Bravo and other trashy reality tv are my usual go tos.

…sometimes I skip the soap and just assume that the shampoo running down my body will suffice. Don’t judge me. 🙂 I smell good most of the time!

…I’m incredibly obsessive. Shocking, I know. For example, I only watch one show on Netflix at a time. I’ll watch that show until I’m completely caught up with all the seasons before choosing my next victim. I get so into my books that I have trouble putting them down. If it’s a series and all the books are out, I’ll finish them in less than 2 weeks. I get stuck on a certain food and eat it until it practically makes me sick. So on and so forth…

…I don’t always enjoy working out. GASP! Don’t get me wrong, I truly enjoy working out even when I’m doing it most of the time. But you know, sometimes you have just one of those days!

…when I get home from work, I sit on the couch…a lot. Too much some days. I’m so pooped from waking up at 4:00am that by 2:00pm all I want to do is chill. I have to give myself chores to get done each day so that I actually do something!

…I don’t like cold cheese, anything cherry flavored, whiskey, bacon, most pig products really, or anything greasy. Crazy I know. And I’m dead serioius about the cheese and bacon thing.

…my puppies are far from well behaved and I guess it’s kind of, sort of, maybe JP and my fault. Maybe. They need to go to puppy boot camp. It’s safe to say their escape act on Sunday proves that!

Now tell me…what are your confessions???
