How was your weekend? I think I’m still recovering from my sister’s bridal shower.
This morning I kept it easy with a 4 mile run around the block. I would have brought Maddie, but I believe she’s still recovering from the weekend too. She was perfectly content to stay curled up in a ball next to Derek rather than get her run on. I’ll admit I was a bit jealous she had the option.
Post-run I made a random bowl of fruit, cereal, and yogurt for breakfast.
- leftover fruit salad from the shower
- almond butter
- plain greek yogurt
- Peanut Butter Cheerios
- Kashi Go Lean Crisp
It’s sad that fruit salad doesn’t last very long in the fridge What I had this morning was mushy and definitely not as appealing as it was when it was cut fresh on Saturday. Still edible, though.
Am I Crazy?
Registration for the 2013 Walt Disney World Marathon opened last week.
It’s not just any Disney Marathon, it’s the 20th anniversary! All the announcements promise an extra special medal for this year’s race, as well as a special surprise at mile 20 for all runners.
I’ve run 5 RunDisney events (Race for the Taste, Disney Marathon 2010, Disney Princess 2011, Tangled 5k, and Disney Princess 2012), volunteered for three more of them (Disney Marathon 2009, Disney Princess 2010, and Wine and Dine 2010), and it’s no secret I’m a bit obsessed with Walt Disney World in general (Derek and I had annual passes last year and I made sure to make good use of them before they expired).
The fact that it’s the 20th anniversary for the full marathon is tempting. Very tempting. There’s just one itty, bitty problem… it’s the weekend after my wedding. So if I did choose to run the full marathon, I would be in the middle of training for a marathon while planning the final details of the wedding. Am I crazy? Probably.
One of the things that first attracted me to Emily’s blog so many years ago was the fact that she was training for a marathon while planning her wedding (Flying Pig was the week before she said ‘I do’). Not only was she training to run the marathon – she was training to BQ! It was a little crazy, but also very inspiring to read about. If she could do it, I figured that means I can do it too, right?
Nothing has been set in stone yet (and no registration forms have been completed or paid for). This is simply an idea that has been twirling around my head for a few weeks now. Originally I wanted to run the Tower of Terror 10 miler in September, but it’s the same day as the FSU/USF game that Derek and I were already planning on attending in Tampa. Maybe I’m just looking for a race to fill that void? Hmmm….
What do you think? Is it crazy to register for a full marathon the week after my wedding? Would you do it?
