This post is dedicated to Laura, who emailed me this morning to see if I was okay because I didn’t blog last night. I’m okay, mom!
More than okay.
I’m in NYC this weekend, but I am so freaking excited for everyone running Disney races this weekend.
The Disney Half was my first half, so Disney races hold a special place in my heart.
I ran the Princess Half last year, and it was a ton of fun, too!
So when I woke up this morning and saw my Twitters and Instagram flooded with posts from Disney, it made me really happy. A huge congrats to my girl Jen from New Balance who finished her second half this morning!
I don’t think I ever blogged about it, but I was seriously considering doing the Goofy Challenge this morning. For those of you unfamiliar: you run the half on Saturday and the full on Sunday. I thought it would be an awesome challenge to cross off my (fitness) bucket list before I turned 30. However, Disney races don’t come cheap–this challenge would have ben $300+ before flights and hotels, so I bagged it. This time.
MY GIRL VALERIE IS RUNNING THE FULL TOMORROW! I am so freaking excited for her. Go wish her luck. It’s her first!
Half training for the win. I ran 3 easy miles this morning in the fog and overcast weather. (I have 10 on deck for tomorrow.) I wasn’t feeling running for awhile after MCM, but oh baby, am I back. And I’ve been so much happier this week for it, too.
So, I have a few questions for you today.
What’s your spring goal race??
Have you ever/would you ever run a Disney race?
I was chatting with a friend last night about running and my blog. She said she thought I should make it a little clearer for y’all to see how I went from running a 35-minute 5k to a 4:04 marathon. I also plan on making my weight loss story a little clearer–anything else you want to see here, either topic-wise or organization-wise?
