Fantabulous Day #104 – Disney Half Marathon Signup – Finally I Did It!


Disney Half Marathon

I finally took the plunge.  I finally signed up for the Disney Half Marathon.  It took me forever but I knew I could not put it off any longer. The race was at 58% full when I look yesterday.  Yikes! Time to get off the fence.

Now, I am all in!

I know I have been claiming to be training for the 1/2 for a while now and it was true.  However I wanted to make sure that I was not just having a moment and this was something that I could truly do.  So after I ran my 5K race while on vacation, even though the conditions were brutal, not to mention the hot weather, I decided to give it a go.  I was sure I could do this.

At this point I was just plain nervous, but I am in now.  I do understand that a 1/2 marathon is not 5k.  This would be more like 21K.  I have plenty of time to train to make sure I am successful.  There are only 3 goals that I WILL accomplish:

  1. Start
  2. Finish
  3. Not be last

I am almost certain that I can do this.  The one concern that I have is the pace.  I have to maintain at least a 15 minute mile.  My 5K was between 13-14 min miles.  I think I can do.  I am not only doing more miles, but working on getting faster.  I wonder do other people worry about this kind of stuff.

Wish me luck on my road to the 1/2.  Here is a link I used to figure out my pacing.

PS – I hope you will continue to follow my journey.  This is a big one for me.

Oh! Any advice is welcome.  🙂
