A new challenge


A family friend of mine has decided to run in the Wine and Dine Half Marathon and has just about talked me into it. It makes me quite nervous as it will be a rather big challenge. Can I do it? I'd certainly like to think so. I haven't totally made up my mind, but I've started training. I think it will be an excellent new goal for myself. Cross your fingers I can pull it off!

My dad is a runner and has qualified for and run in the Boston Marathon a few times as well as many, many other races through the years. Maybe I've inherited his running genes!? Let's hope so! He has come up with some training plans and is giving me tips so I am glad to have his advice. It's nice to be able to share this with my dad since he might run in it with us as well.

As for the event, it's in October and it's at night—10 p.m. Kinda cool! It will wind through all the parks. When it's over, there's a Food and Wine Festival after party for the runners and friends and family.

I guess I'd better make up my mind pretty soon . . . to run or not run, that is the question :)

I'm running a 5k in November, so we'll see if that jump-starts a race bug in me :) That sounds like a fun race though!

Good luck to you! I'm a runner, as in, I run every day, but have never done a marathon or half marathon... maybe something to look into! Regardless, good for you- I'm sure it'll be fun, especially since your Dad might do it too! :)

I think you should definitely do it! I've seen some of the WDW marathon on two recent trips and it looks like so much to run through the parks (and a half-marathon sounds even more fun and less exhausting!). Especially during the Food & Wine Festival!
