Disney Marathon

AHHHHH it's almost here! Tomorrow we leave for Orlando, so on Sunday we can run the Disney Marathon. I am absolutely terrified as my longest run has been 19 miles and I felt like death afterwards. Hahaha...it should be interesting to say the least! At least we will be in Disneyworld!

Good Luck! you will do great. I completed my first ( and probably only) marathon back in Sept. I should have trained alot more, def never made it up to 19 miles before hand, i had done a half marathon about a year prior. I had to walk some, but its such a great feeling when you cross the finish line and knowing you finished.

I've known ppl who have done the Disney. They say its alot of fun. The characters are through out the run. I know alot of ppl stop along the way and take pictures! Good Luck!

Thank you, I hope so!! Hahaha I have a feeling this might be my only marathon as well (although I think half marathons are more my thing)! I'm with you on the training a lot more too! I'm good up until about 14 miles, and then I REALLY start to feel it. I'm hoping Disney will give me the motivation I need!

Georgiaonmymind: BAHAHAHA . Those people are CRAZY!!!!!!

I have 2 friends running Goofy this year :-) I could not, as it is my daughters birthday and she asked me to throw her a 15k race for her 15th birthday. We are running a 25k the day before :-)

One day I will do Goofy!

for her 13th birthday she wanted a race entry for her first half marathon. 14th birthday came and went, and for her 15th birthday she wanted to do a race with her friends. Well..most of her friends are on her Cross Country team, but run the 5k distance, not much further. So we decided to keep it a 15k not a 15 miler.
Happy running!

I've read several race reports on runnersworld.com about the Disney races. They sound like fun, but not something I would ever do. If I ever get enough experience to run a marathon, it will be as small a race as I can find. Disney is not a race for a PR (unless it's your only one) but sounds like a good one for the experience of it. Take lots of pictures and have fun.

That's SO awesome! A half marathon for a 14 year old is impressive. I've heard the Disney is pretty fun. My goal is just to finish! I think with time I will forget how incredibly terrible training was, so I might end up doing another one, but I have a feeling time will never be something I am worried about.
