My first race for this year is the highly-anticipated Disney’s Princess Half Marathon, taking place at Walt Disney World on February 24th, 2013. It is my first Disney race, and my first half-marathon. I am very excited, especially because 1) I get to run in costume (running as Cinderella!) and 2) Another reason to go to Walt Disney World, yay!
I truly dislike running in extremely cold weather, therefore I’ve been doing most of my winter running indoors, on a treadmill and it is quite boring, especially when doing long runs. Anything past 5-6 miles and I’m literally bored to death! I try watching movies on my iPad or listening to music on Pandora or Spotify and that seems to help some, but gosh…
I’ve been training using the Jeff Galloway marathon training schedule and I highly recommend it. This is coming from a girl who could barely run a mile last summer and now I can run 10+ miles. It’s very easy to get excited and carried away and start to do too much at once (I know from experience!!!) but slow is the way to go. I’ll try to update this blog frequently.
See you at the finish line!
