The Urge Is Back

by Meghann on March 23, 2016

I have the urge to race again.

It came over me earlier this week when runDisney opened pre-registration for the Wine & Dine Half Marathon. My newsfeed exploded as everyone jumped on the limited spots available for annual passholders and DVC members. I found myself getting caught in the rush. Oh, a race. I want to do that! I even found myself toggling over the registration button, so tempted to register myself. Thankfully everything sold out before I was able to come to my senses. Yes, I want to race, but not this one. They eliminated a park from the course and moved the start from evening (what I loved about this race!) to the standard morning start. Those changes on top of the $$ fee made me realize this race is not for me.

I may not be registered for Wine & Dine, but the whole experience had me yearning for something. I want to make a commitment. I want to give myself a goal. I want to run. Now I just need to find the right race.

Unfortunately the running season is coming to an end here in Florida. Maybe it’s time to dust off the old bike, remind myself how to swim, and register for a triathlon. Or visit my brother in Jacksonville for a half marathon this fall/winter. Either way I need a goal and I think I’m finally ready to put down the money and commit to it.

I have the urge to race. Now I just need to do it.
