Time to Train!


On this weird sort of whim back in January I registered the kids and I for Mickey's Halloween 5K. This is Disney's only race that goes through the Magic Kingdom and it didn't seem to me like something I should miss. The course takes us "from the Happy Parking Lot toward Magic Kingdom® Park. Run past Tony's Town Square Restaurant onto Main Street, U.S.A.® toward Tomorrowland® where we will run past the Space Mountain® Attraction, under Walt Disney's Carousel of Progress and past Indy Car Motor Speedway. The course will then turn before the Mad Tea Party to run past the Rose Garden and in front of Cinderella Castle. Follow the ghostly lights toward the Haunted Mansion as you race through Liberty Square, past The Hall of Presidents, and then onto Frontierland® and Adventureland®." Then we'll head out to the West Beach to cross the finish line.

Okay, so 5 mmonths to go and we're still not walking under Disney's pace limit. YIKES! We need to get our collective toosh in gear and start training hard for this race. My back injury has really put us behind, but the sun is shining and it's a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow. I'll be tracking my work outs on my RunKeeper and you can follow me there. We've got at least 2 minutes a mile to drop off our our current pace.

Can we do it? Stay tuned...
