Last November, I was BEYOND delighted that hubs had agreed to run a relay with me. Of course, this wasn’t any relay, it was the Wine and Dine Half Marathon relay at Walt Disney World! Held in the early Fall, I was incredibly stoked to be planning our next visit to Disney during my favorite time of year – Magic Kingdom and Epcot’s birthday 🙂
This January, however, I was thrown for a loop when runDisney made a surprise announcement: they were adding another race to their popular line up; The Tower of Terror 10-Miler! Unfortunately for me, that new race meant something else…schedule change! The 10-Miler pushed the Half to November.
Bummer! I really wanted to be at Epcot for their 30th birthday celebration (and look at the amazing stuff that’s coming out then!) but eh…a fun Disney trip is still a fun Disney trip! Maybe this would mean that it’d be less busy?
So, we were still on track…registration was to open up Mid-March for Wine and Dine…and I found another roadblock…the relay was going away! What?! I was so sad! Sure, we could do the 5K together, but travelling hundreds of miles for 3.1 UNTIMED miles? Not my cup of tea. Wah. I had a moment…after all, this was my DIRECT quote from my post last year…
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?
I didn’t register the moment the announcement was posted on March 13, as I had planned.
But….we did on March 17 at the Shamrock Expo!
YES, it is true, MY HUSBAND WILL BE RUNNING 13.1 WITH ME ON NOVEMBER 10, 2012! MARK YOUR CALENDARS!
I am so very thankful and excited that he is taking on this challenge. Okay, so I might have handed him the registration form and told him halfway through him filling it out WHAT it was, but hey, it’s ON!
Less than 8 months!
What are you thankful for today?
