In February 2014 I ran my very first Run Disney race, the Royal Family 5k. It was hot, and humid and 5am but I did it. I finished my first ever 5k. In 13 short days I will register for my FIRST EVER Half Marathon. Yeah, I know scary stuff. I was instantly sucked into the Run Disney environment when I ran last year. So I left Walt Disney World in February certain that I would do the Princess Half in 2015. It’s almost time to register and I am freaking out. Can I do it, will the sweepers get me, what about those balloon ladies? So much uncertainty and doubt when you are clearly “not a runner”. But I know I have a lot of cheerleaders in my corner including my pals Patty and Julie. I mean they definitely know my fears right now.
I begin training next month and I will FINISH that race! I do believe running is mind over matter, and I am determined to get that bling. Stay posted as I update my training and all the fun along the way until I cross that Finish Line in Epcot next February.
Do you Run? What are some tips and tricks for this VERY novice runner?
