OK so I told you guys about #MyMarchMarathon that I did with my sistafriend, Dee that I completed recently. And so now that its over, I’m feeling like I need another challenge in my weight loss (well besides making sure that I do something everyday, watching my food intake and getting my water in).
So once again, I’m on Instagram looking around and I see pics from some of the runners who have participated in the RunDisney marathons. The pics looked fun and everyone was all smiles (who doesn’t love the Mouse and all things Disney?)
It was around that time that I think I lost a part of my mind because I said “Imma run in a marathon”.
*faints* LOL Now keep in mind, that I just started on my weight loss journey in February so I’m two months in and now Imma run a marathon????????? Yup, welcome to my crazy! I think I have lost a part of my mind, but yet the other part, says this is a good thing. I have plenty of time to learn the run/walk method while working on getting in shape. Its a great idea but then I started getting scared.
My plan was to run a half marathon, that’s 13 miles, in a single day. *blink* I’m not a runner. This entire thing is new to me but yet, Imma do it anyway. But I need to be more realistic and not put too much on my shoulders. So with that I will be signing up for the either the 5K or 10K. That’s more in my league at this point and I’m very comfortable with that.
So of course to keep me on point, I made a banner for both my personal profile and my Facebook page
Now I have several friends who are all things Disney and they are sending “congrats” and “way to go’s” and “you can do it” but I also have those friends who are runners who are giving me great advice for newbies such as following Jeff Galloway’s run/walk method and make sure that my nutrition is on point, which is what Im doing. I even added a app to my phone called C25K (couch to 5K) Free for beginning runners like myself.
So my training will begin on April 1 and I will keep you guys posted on how its going. It will either be here or on my Instagram page where I’m sharing a lot more pics.
Sooooooo anyone wanna join me?
