20th Anniversary Walt Disney World Marathon Training Week 18: Race Week!

Whoooohooooo here we go Race Week!  How am I feeling:


Goofy2011 088I am so very excited to run this year.  It is not just for the bling either as nice as it is.  This is really the first time I am going to get to run the marathon  with dear friends of mine.   More importantly this is the first time for most of the training I ran with my friends and not on a treadmill or by myself.  It is great having friends to go through the rigors of marathon training with.  More important for three of my running buddies this is their first time at Disney.  So I have been exciting just telling them about the course, characters and all the fun 26.2 miles can have.  So John, Lori and Dan, get ready to have a blast around Disney.  I know you will not soon forget the run, Pearl would even agree she still remembers the run and that was 2 years ago.  Also a side note this will be my buddy Dan’s first marathon and getting to be there with him as he crosses the line is going to awesome.  See you at the finish! 

So as you can tell I am excited, prepared and ready to run!  If your running Disney and need a little more motivation here you go (has become my tradition)
