It was time to s*** or get off the pot. So I decided to take a big one.
Thanks to Capsulejay and RunRunRosie, I’ve registered for a marathon to run with them. Gulp. This is the first weekly overview of my training.
Well, I did it. I registered for a real, full, 26.2 mile-long marathon. The Publix Atlanta Marathon to be exact. March 1, 2020. 25 weeks from now. Or rather, 25 weeks from last Tuesday. Which may mean it's 24 weeks now. I don't know. It's 6 months away, or as Siri...
Figuring out how to train for a 5k is tough. You’re not training for a marathon, but you’re certainly not running sprints either.
Couch-to-5K is broken because a real couch-level beginning runner can’t even do the first day. Here’s my suggestion to making Day 1 go smoothly for yourself as a new athlete.
The Star Wars half-marathon was one of the most fun experiences I’ve ever had. I absolutely understand why people say runDisney races are different now. Especially the Star Wars races.
The second day of getting up between 2 and 2:30 am was a little rougher. Not bad, but after having put a pretty solid day in at Hollywood Studios, my alarm wasn’t the best sound I’d ever heard.
We did like everyone said to: use the runDisney 5k to get the main character photos we wanted. BB-8, Artoo, Phasma, and Chewie are our buddies now.
It started with a random text message. And ended with one of the most wonderful, happy, and memorable weekends of my life.
A lot of my memories at theme parks involve running, but this one was different. My dad and I ran across the world to save our souvenirs, but that isn’t what treasure I got that day.
