ever since i realized that the runDisney walt disney marathon weekend would be celebrating it’s 20th anniversary in january, i’ve kind of wanted to run it. actually, i’ve really wanted to run it.
although, trying to decide between which race to run (the half marathon or the full 26.2) became a bit of a challenge.
i’m not usually a full marathon kinda girl – but it’s a race. & i’m a believer – runDisney races truly do have magic in every mile.
so, if i were ever going to commit to running another full marathon – runDisney probably is the way to go. but… that half was still calling me name.
& then i had a crazy idea… to run the walt disney world marathon goofy challenge – finishing both the half marathon (on saturday) & the full marathon (on sunday) in a single weekend.
i’ve ran hood to coast. i’ve ran an ultra ragnar. i have several half marathons & one full marathon under my belt.
what’s another 39.3 miles?
and let’s just say that the universe responded in an overwhelming fashion. & they almost had me convinced. almost.
but yet, i still wasn’t ready to fully commit. flying across the entire country – for a race?
most people would probably think i’m crazy. but flying across the entire country to run two races (possibly even three, if i go “whole hog” & commit to running “dopey” – a 5K, half marathon & full marathon) back-to-back. that’s just insanity, right?!
& then runDisney started to reveal the medals…
suddenly, my decision just got so much harder – i’m always a sucker for the bling.
& unfortunately, i have to decide fast. the clock is ticking – literally.
while the walt disney world marathon weekend is still months away (thank goodness – no matter which race i sign up for, i’ll need to train). but each & every race is filling up – fast! if i don’t decide soon, i might not be training for any of the races.
or, do i go “full monty” and run the goofy challenge? but at that point, i might as well go dopey, right?!
somebody please help! am i certifiably insane? because i’m really starting to wonder. but those medals are definitely calling my name! i think i just need a little “nudge” before i’m ready to commit!
