Day 92: Mickey, Minnie and Me

I'm so excited! I just scored a ticket to run in the Disneyland Half Marathon on Labor Day Weekend! The run is 13 miles and will be a great prelude to the full Marathon next March. For those of you who follow my Blog you know that one of my goals for my 49th year leading up to turning 50, is to run a marathon. That's 26.2 miles for those of you that were not sure how long this physical challenge is.

The run at Disneyland takes you through the rides all the while having Disney characters cheer you on! How fun to run through the amazing rides and the entire grounds of this magical amusement park. Certainly beats the sidewalk pavement through a boring neighborhood.

So on Sunday, September 5th I will take off at 7 a.m. working toward my goal of completing a half marathon.

I'm looking forward to the fun of the race and being surrounded by all my favorite characters. And now that I have the ticket I am committed to even more intense training. I've been increasing my miles weekly, and have been loving my longer beach runs in Santa Monica.

Brian made me a play list to listen to while I run with all my favorite tunes. Yesterday I ran with the Ipod for the first time and was inspired by all the motivational songs he recorded. I'm sure the music will help me stay motivated as the miles increase and your mind can play tricks on your brain!

I will continue to keep you all posted as to my running progress and of course I will post fun pictures of me, Minnie, and Mickey when I complete the run at Disneyland!
