I tend to make unrealistic goals for myself. Unrealistic in the sense that I attempt to accomplish way too much at one time and also have no plan to accomplish them, which has proven over and over a recipe for failure. For 2012, I have one resolution that is set, and I have my plan in place. I want to train for a runDisney event.
Before this week, my goal was to train the entire year to run the January 2013 WDW Half Marathon. If Disney can't motivate me to get into shape - nothing can! But with the newest announcement by runDisney, I think I may have to change my resolution from train for a Disney race to run a Disney race. I am considering running in The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror 10-Miler. I think this would absolutely be a great first race! Then, I would see where I would stand for the 2013 WDW Marathon Weekend. I also find it interesting that just when I really set my mind to this goal, runDisney announces this brand new race. Coincidence or sign? I am going with this being a sign that for once in my life (since having kids) it is time to do something for myself, someone who has been forgotten over the last seven years. (Disclaimer: That, of course, is not a complaint, I love my kids and would sacrifice anything for them!)
Imagine running at night and possibly "bumping into" villains around the course. This leads me to imagine just what it would be like to run through the theme parks, something I have never done! After the race, there is even a private party. I can feel my baby weight (I know, I am way past the days of it actually being called baby weight!) dropping off as we speak. The idea of training for and participating in something so amazing is my motivation and I can't wait!
My Disney Resolution:
On September 29, 2012, I will be ready and running in The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror 10-Miler. (By the way, if you are thinking of registering for this race, registration opens on February 14, 2012.)
How about you? When is your next Disney race? Will it be your first?
