What is significant about that number? That’s the pace I need to keep to run the Disney Marathon at SUB 5 HOURS. Are you giving me a do-what? It’s ok; had a similar reaction when Katye first told me that the idea popped in her head on a run. I then started laughing uncontrollably; thinking of the bad couple of runs I had recently had (hello sucking for air). After a few encouraging comments and getting my head around it, I wasn’t laughing; I was determined, because I have awesome tools to achieve the goal. I have an awesome coach, a great support system and a heck of a lot of determination to get this accomplished. It’s not going to kill me to run it, and there are a lot of people who would KILL for the chance to be able to run. It’s worth it. Its going to be something incredible to accomplish!!
The first TNT run was awesome, BTW. It was a “know your pace” and a just a mile, but it was really nice to get to know the team and meet people who are working with you on a very worthy cause. I ran my pace way faster than I do in a race (woops) but I guess I should get used to it for the sub 5 I have planned! I’m looking forward to future runs with the team and having each other as a support system
In other exciting news, I was able to meet Julie this weekend. I feel like I knew her because of her blog and Facebook, so it was nice to really meet her and not feel so stalker-ish! She is a super sweet, beautiful girl who just started her first grown up job on Monday (go tell her congrats!!) and we were able to help each other out; I had a sofa to sell, and she had a living room with no furniture--Perfect :) Hopefully we will see each other again soon—perhaps at the Amish Country Bird in Hand Half Marathon
Don’t forget to enter my giveaway that ends on the 22nd. You won’t be disappointed--super cute stuff!!
Happy Running everyone!!
