Running, running!

For those have been following this blog for a while, you know that after my son was born, I became a runner. Not just my required 2 miles for work (Army Physical Fitness), but since January 2011, I've run 2 half marathons (13.1 miles each!) and had logged over 100 miles by June 1st.

Since June, I've had to cut down on mileage and deferred my 2012 half marathon entrance to the 2013 half marathon.  Luckily, RunDisney is pretty awesome with deferring, as long as you can do it 45 days out.

As of last week, my family and I are registered for the WDW Marathon Weekend 5k - Disney's Family Fiesta 5k with the Three Caballeros!  My husband surprised me with his entry - he thought he could keep it from me, but I got it out of him pretty easily.

The best part about this 5k?  Even Noah, who will be riding in a stroller with us, will earn a medal!  How cute is that?  Of course, with Noah running in the kid's race later that day and Adam running the half marathon the next day, I'll be the only one with 1 medal, but that's okay.

Anyone else considering registering for these or any other RunDisney events?  I'd love to hear about your training or motivate you if you think you can't!


  1. Ok, I can do the 5K and I would do it just to get that medal. It is too cool

  2. FANTASTIC!! If I weren't going to the Tinker Bell later that month, I would meet you there!!!!! Great inspiration :D

    I love he gets his own medal! I am ready to start running again too! Just trying to find it in my new schedule with Louis and waiting for him to tolerate a jogging stroller!

  4. You are awesome!! I love that you are inspiring your little ones too!!

  5. Good luck! And the medal is super cute.
