Today is the day I head over to Walt Disney World, to join in on all the fun of Marathon Weekend! The weather has been extremely cold in Orlando the last few days but looks like it should be warming up for the Full Marathon on Sunday. So, here’s hoping it stays in the 40-60 range.
I can work with 40-60 degree weather, in fact, I think that’s perfect for the actual running of the marathon. I’m a little nervous about waiting in the corrals for the cold, but I’m not going to stress too badly.
I’ve seen a lot of my running/blogging friends split their goals into two parts, an A goal and a B goal, so I am jumping on that band-wagon and also sharing two sets of goals.
Goal A – Best. Race. Ever!
- Stop for 3 Character photos along the course
- Take a photo in every park
- Beat my current PR 7:01:17 (Read about it here)
- Finish with a smile
- Finish without getting injured
Goal B – Best-ish. Race. Ever!
- Stop for 2 character photos along the course
- take a photo in every park
- Finish the race without getting swept
- Don’t get injured.
I think these goals are absolutely attainable and am looking forward to the actual race. My nerves got the better of me today, and if you watched my Instastories you saw I was totally sick, but I’m feeling much better now. – Thank you to the many people who reached out and offered kind words.
I can’t wait to share all about the weekend, I’m not sure how active I will be on social media, I will probably be the most active over on Twitter, so be sure to follow along!
Thanks so much to everyone supporting me and chEARing me on through this journey. It means the world to me.
