Guess I am getting close to halfway (want to be there by about January 15, 2013 - in time for the half marathon)

I have just discovered this thread while researching training for the Disney 1/2 Marathon this January. A little history of me, I have never been or will I be a runner. I have pins and screws holding my left knee together and I have had back surgery for problems with my right leg, but my friends and I have decided to do the Disney 1/2 Marathon. My plan is to walk it and to get my pace to less than 15 min mile so I do not get swept. Training for this marathon has gotten me off the couch and walking. In three weeks, I went from walking 3 miles and wanting to die to walking 8 miles the morning after Thanksgiving and feeling pretty good!! WOW!!

But I was wondering what I was going to do for motiviation after January, well now I discivered walk to Disney. We are having a family trip there in June 2012, so now I need to walk approx. 1140 more miles.

so add me 40/1133.

Well I've missed posting for a few weeks but still doing my run/walk thing most of the time and I've dropped over a minute from my average mile time in the past month or so which is awesome! I average 15.87 min per mile today for my 40 min workout at lunch so I am finally better then the disney required speed for the 2nd workout in a row and its under 5 weeks til the Family Fiesta 5k which I'm doing as a warmup for the Tink... anyhow...

Week 15
518.58/1129 = 46% Almost halfway!

That is awesome, Suzy!

I am still struggling with my health issues and have never gotten back to the level I'd been working at before I got sick last October. Nevertheless I am chipping away at it.

walking to Disney: 109/984

You'll get through it! You just have to take it one step at a time!

I love the idea of this thread...it's inspiring me to start walking...going to be interesting to walk outside here in New England this time of year. Any tips on staying warm while walking in colder climates?

Starting

I'm not on the boards a lot, but I'm doing this!

I had a major health scare last week (I feel fine but I'll find out over the next month if I'm okay) and am now determined to lose some weight.

I'm 1748 miles from the front gates. There's no way I can do this in a year, but I want to see how far I CAN get. I'm starting today and have .98 miles so far!
