This Sunday, my running partners (Chrissy, Maribel, Marie, Daffodil, Larisa) and I face the moment we’re trained for over months. We’ve had our share ups and downs. We’ve juggled jobs, families, illness, allergies, asthma, and injuries. Now we put our bodies physically and mentally to the test.
A few of us are running 26.2 miles just for fun.
Others are running for a PR.
I’m running 26.2 miles purely due to peer pressure. I don’t want to miss out on all the fun and photo opportunities.
I can’t wait. That’s right. I can’t wait to run 5 hours just to pose with Mickey, Minnie and all the princesses. I’ve done it before and that’s another reason why I’m willing to do it again. It’s a magical experience from start to finish.
And if I could be totally honest, the 20th anniversary edition of the Walt Disney Marathon is really cool.
Some prefer to sit on the couch or in a movie theater for 12 hours watching a marathon on the big screen or television.
I prefer to experience a marathon in action.
Some of us prefer to come running.
