One year to the 2014 WDW Marathon!

Ok, ok, I know the 2013 Marathon is this weekend. I wish all of you the best of luck! I was originally registered for it, but I had to back out due to my second running related injury in 6 months (grrrr...a stress fracture).

In any case, my sights are set for 2014, the Goofy Challenge. You who are running in 2013 (this weekend) will be my inspiration.

Anyone care to join?? 5k, kids races, half marathon, full marathon, Goofy ... doesn't matter. We have ONE YEAR to get ourselves healthy and in shape and in training form for this run.

Let's do it! Who's in?

My blog: I achieved my goal January 12, 2014! see how I did it: Couch to Goofy Marathon and a Half Challenge!
Hear my interview about achieving this goal on the Runner Academy Everyday Runners podcast.

I'm there! Starting general health / cardio / weight loss for a couple of months, then starting running, with the 'official' goofy training starting around July 1... UGH... that's going to suck with temps :/ But I am in it to win it!!! Well, ok, finish it upright that will be a win for me!

This morning I started the Jeff Galloway 1/2 marathon training program. In hopes that I will be ready by this time next year to run the WDW 1/2 marathon.
