RunDisney and Registrations and Wedding DVDs, Oh My!

Well, it’s officially official.  My husband and I are registered for the 2014 Walt Disney World Half Marathon!  We’ve been talking about doing it for months now, but we decided to wait until we “had” to register.  Tonight, my husband saw that the race was 90% full and he decided that it was time. 

I am super excited and a little nervous, but according to the runDisney website, I have 247 days to prepare myself for the race.  We’ve already started with walking 3-4 times a week to slowly work my knee back into shape.  I had a knee injury playing volleyball in college and I tore my cartilage.  My surgeon was not able to fix it, so I have limited padding in my right knee. Over the summer, we’ll work up to more jogging, intervals, and longer distances.  Thank goodness we have a nice walking trail nearby!

I’m determined to finish the race.  I’m not doing it for the time this race.  In fact, as long as I can keep a 14-15 minute overall pace, I don’t care about the clock at all.  I’ll have gone 13.1 whole miles from Epcot, through the Magic Kingdom and back to Epcot.  I’m doing it so I can proudly say that I did it.  I finished it.  And the finishers medal is pretty good motivation too.  Who wouldn’t want to rock one of those around the theme parks after the race?

On another note, our Disney Wedding DVD came in the mail today!!!  I’m SO excited to finally see it, but it’s going to have to wait until this weekend when the hubs and I are both awake enough to enjoy it!  I’ll let you know how it turned out!  J
