As everyone knows that reads this blog knows, I love running. As everyone that has a pulse knows, I love Disney…so it’s pretty darn cool that there runDisney is around for me to put these two together!
Words cannot describe the feeling of accomplishing a goal that seemed so unattainable just a year before! I remember planning to sign up for Disneyland only, reasoning that a year would be a good amount of time to build up – after all, a year ago, the longest I had raced was a 10K! Sometimes you really can surprise yourself – because as magical as a Disney can make those miles zip by, it does take a fair amount of legwork, too!
Up until now, the ONLY (and I mean ONLY) regret or not so pixie-dusted thought I had about the whole experience is that I had moments where I felt selfish.
Saying it out loud typing it here – it sounds kind of silly, but I have felt that this new pasttime of mine has been ‘me-centered.’ Sure, hubs has tennis and nerdy computer-related hobbies, but running really could be something we could do TOGETHER…I mean, I couldn’t expect him to up and decide to run a half marathon with me…but, what about half of the half?
Okay, to be technical…4.8 of 13.1 – but who cares about technicalities?!
HUBS HAS AGREED TO RUN THE WINE AND DINE HALF MARATHON RELAY WITH ME NEXT FALL!
This is seriously huge news!!!!!!!!!! <——- (see how many exclamation points I used?!)
Excitement on SO many levels, including, but certainly not limited to:
- Another Disney vacation 😀
- Um, did you catch the title: Wine and Dine? Those sound like pretty good reasons to me!
- And of course: RUNNING WITH MY HUBBY!
