Okay. So I took the first step and paid for the Disney marathon. I booked my hotel, dining package, park tickets, Bippity, Boppity Boutique for my 4-year-old and opps….I guess it’s time to start training. Today marks Day 1. Pretty easy. I know this is going to get really tough. I’m starting Week One a little behind schedule. I was supposed to start July 2nd, but really who is going to start running the day before a BBQ holiday. So, I’m starting now. Today, I ran for 30 minutes and did 2 miles. I felt pretty good about this. I can do more than that, but kept my pace around 12 min mile. No point in making myself feel horrible later, right???
Anyone else out there doing the Disney Marathon? This will be my first one ever so I’m excited, scared and nervous all rolled into one. I’ve done 7 half marathons, but there is something about adding those extra 13 or so miles that really messes with your head.
Anyway, Happy Running to you all and thank you for sharing this journey with me.
