I haven’t really wanted to say this out loud. But I’ve been a little worried the past month or two. You see, ever since I got home from Princess Half Marathon weekend I’ve been burned out. I’ve gone out for a run exactly one time since then. All of the conditioning and progress I’ve made has been rapidly disappearing. The worst part? I haven’t really cared. It’s worried me. Did this mean my days of running were numbered?
Blah. I’ve just felt blah.
So I had a little hesitation when early registration opened for the 2015 Disney Marathon Weekend. Did I really want to invest the money for something that I wasn’t particularly excited for? But I’m a sucker for Disney. And a sucker for my running buddies. And I couldn’t turn down the opportunity to push myself a little bit harder. $383.90 later, I’m now registered for Goofy’s Race and a Half Challenge. 39.3 miles in 2 days. A freaking ton of training coming my way. A scary big step to take. And suddenly, the joy is back. I’m excited and nervous and happy and looking forward to this adventure. I have no idea how I’m going to pull this off but I know I will. In the words of Walt, “It’s kind of fun to do the impossible”.
And just like that, I’m back in the game. Here we go!
