…I've signed up for another marathon.
Yup, I'm running the Disney Marathon (again) in January! My running has been going really well lately and I have missed the longer distances. I had dropped the hint to Michelle few weeks ago that I was thinking about signing up, and she didn't run away screaming, so I took that as permission to proceed Truth be told, she was just happy to have an excuse to go back to Disney for a few days!
We lucked out pretty well as we were able to book flights with points and get our room at Disney with our Disney Vacation Club points as well…we will fly in the day before the race and then have the next 3 days to just relax and enjoy some time together.
I was able to get out on our holiday Monday for my long run…25K, which is a little over 15 miles, making it my longest run since Around the Bay 30K way back in March. It was a little warmer than it has been lately, but there was a light mist in the air (along with a really strong headwind)…I set on on the country roads that I ran all last summer when I was marathon training and despite some less than perfect weather (and muddy roads), I really enjoyed it. I love running long and I had forgotten that…after the run my decision was made. I signed up later that day.
I had mentioned the other day that it was time to replace my shoes, you know, since they had holes in them. I have pretty much settled on the Saucony Kinvara 5's as I have been running in the 3's and 4's the last couple years and really like them. Now only the most important decision remains…which colour to buy? I'm digging these ones (I wear a LOT of blue…)
Have a great day folks!
Anyone else running Disney Marathon Weekend in January?
