It’s usually a pretty seamless transition from Christmas Carols to Disney classics once the holidays are over because that means it’s time for an annual tradition: the January trip to Disney World. My sister and I have gone to Disney World the second weekend in January for the last 7 years and this will be our 4th trip including a marathon.
I have absolutely no idea how this marathon is going to go. I haven’t been running as much as I should be in December. Between my work schedule, the holidays, and family stuff there just hasn’t been the time. Normally I would be freaked out about this, but honestly I’m just looking forward to the trip so much that it doesn’t even phase me really. I know I’m not going to PR, I know my time won’t be awesome (for me), and I know I’m running without my favorite running partner in crime.
There are two things that make running a really different experience: music and friends. I’m not overstating it when I say that the race course will be a worse place because we will not be together on it. We lift spirits, Team Can-Am, and we have in the past picked up people along the course (you’re welcome, Disneyland half marathoners!).
Anyone else excited to head down to the World for the Most Magical of Running Weekends?!
