The Mom and I try to go down to Florida once a year. We have family down there, my aunt and uncle. We generally stay at a Disney resort and they come over and spend a day with us. This year we decided not to go, in part because of my training and in part because for some very hectic work schedules. On some random day I decided to see if Disney had a triathlon, thinking that would be fun to do. While I did not find a Disney Tri, I did find a variety of run options throughout the year, one of which is in November. It’s a ½ marathon though the parks at night! It sounded kind of cool, so I sent The Mom an email about it. To be honest I was only about half serious. I very quickly got a call saying “Yes, Yes, Yes!”
The Mom, being very spry and active decided to do the 5k option! I went from moderate interest in the event to full blown excitement! Registration opened and I signed us both up for our events (both of which sold out in under 30 minutes!) I’m as excited about doing this with The Mom as I am about my Ironman!
Now this isn’t all rainbows and puppy dogs, I have to be able to do the ½ at a certain pace (16min/mls), this might seem really easy to most people, but that’s still a struggle for me over that distance, but I have some time to work on that.
Regardless, The Mom and I are headed down to hang with the Main Mouse and participate in a running event together! I couldn’t be happier!
