Nemesis Challenge: No Pain, No Gain. A ½ Marathon 2013 NEW Updates 2/20 NEW
Ever since I found the DISboards, I've met some great people. It is weird that you can tell a persons personality from what they type on a computer screen. Some people you 'click' with and others... well, become what can be only called as your nemesis. According to Webster, a NEMESIS is a formidable and usually victorious rival or opponent. I've found my nemesis here on the DIS. What better way to strike fear into his soul than to challenge him to run in the Walt Disney World 1/2 marathon? Neither of us were runners. His wife was also 7 months pregnant at the time. It went down like this:

Tim: So I had this crazy idea. Im not sure if this is the right time for you though with the baby on the way. What if we had a marathon challenge and run in the January ½ marathon. Ive never run one before. Maybe this would be a way to get myself into shape.
Barry: Hmmm& Interesting. You calling me fat? I could use the motivation too- I ran that 5K back in September but barely lifted my feet since then.
And with those simple texts, our Nemesis Challenge was born. PTR is HERE
Not only was this 1/2 marathon a running first, but this was the first time my DW & I have been to Disney without our kids. I guess I should tell you who we are..
I'm Tim and that beautiful woman standing with me is Melody..
Not only was this the weekend of our marathon challenge, but a group of guys here on the DIS, the SELF PROCLAIMED DISDads, were having their convention in WDW during this weekend. I'm sure you'll see them pop in here from time to time. Let me apologize to you all ahead of time.
This is a 4 day TR about running, friends- new and old, and an adults only trip to WDW!
Surprise! We're NOT going to Disney! In Progress
This is the last trip the 4 of us ever take to WDW. TR
