Popped in a Leslie Sansone DVD and walked 2 miles worth last night. Liked it much more than the treadmill 3 miler of Sunday. Think I'll keep doing the DVDs and use the TM to break up the monotony and make sure I keep moving forward.

How about everyone else - is everyone moving? Except for our racers, of course, who have earned a few days off!

Just got back from Disney(drove from FL to NJ just behind the storm). I am so proud that I have now successfully completed my second Half Marathon. Wow, what an adventure. I want to thank all the Wishers out there for their wonderful support and encouragement. It really is such a great feeling to be cheered on with such enthusiasm. Daughter and I are already planning for next year. Hope I can keep up and stay on track.
Thanks to all the Rebels for being here to share all the good times and bad. We really do rely on one another for encouragement, support, and celebration.

Congratulations Nikki!! We're so happy and proud of you! I love your pictures, they are great. But the best part is that you are smiling in every single one of them. It looks like you had a blast.

Hi Rebels! I kind of have been silent here for a few months. Hopefully most will remember my struggles with finding out that I have asthma. Nothing really has changed there other than I have a lot more good days than bad. In Oct I completed my first marathon. I didn’t have a real great time but I did finish. Plus, it was great reaching my goal even though asthma kept me from training quite a bit of the times.

I struggled most of the fall also and could hardly train for the Goofy. But, some how, I crossed the finish line at the WDW Marathon and had two medals given to me, which made three medals for the weekend. No race reports at the moment but I will be writing ones for my blog soon.

Unfortunately, I am not doing well at the moment. I had to go to Express Care Wednesday because of breathing issues had gotten out of control. I guess my lungs became highly irritated from the weekend races. This same thing happened after my last marathon. I suspect this is my new norm. I think I will be OK just need some time for Prednisone to kick in. Hopefully I will feel better in a couple of days.

Anyway, “Congrats” to all the Rebels for some great racing!!!

I am working on getting my races ready for 2011 and will get them posted here.

Take care and keep up the racing!!!

Will try to get my pics up soon.

Thanks Andrea.

James, I hope all goes well for a speedy recovery. The Goofy is certainly a great achievement. Congratulations to you.

I'm putting together the video that I took on the way round with the photos and I hope to be able to post a link in the next day or two.

Best wishes to all,

James - Wow, first of all, congratulations on your 2 marathnos and 1 half. That's quite an accomplishment, especially considering your struggle with asthma.

I'm sorry you are having such a rough time getting and keeping that under control. Please take care of yourself as getting healthy is more important than getting a race done. Please keep us updated as to how you are doing, and get on that race report!

Liam - I love your pics, too! Especially the character ones. I was too afraid to stop for any of the characters during the Princess last year (didn't want to lose time), but these make me wish I had! Can't wait to see the video.

Everyone - What healthy thing did you do for yourself over the weekend?

I walked a lot on Saturday. Went to DC for the day and walked from the Metro to 2 museums and walked all around them. Wish I had a GPS or pedomoeter on. I bet it would be some impressive numbers!

Thanks, I'm glad you liked them. I stopped for almost character photo available. I really wasn't concerned about my time at all and I wanted to enjoy everything that is special about the Disney races and getting as many character photos as possible was something I'd promised my wife and daughter. It was the only way I was given permission to come.

I'd pre-ordered the Goofy photo package but they are being quite slow about making them available for download. Sometime between now and Wednesday is their latest estimate. I should get the video up very soon after that.

Liam

Andrea, good job with the walking. I went for 12 miles Saturday and tried a new fuel. Pretzel M&Ms. It was outstanding. The salt was needed.

Excellent tip, Mike. The thought of having pretzel M&Ms might be just the motivation I need to get out there for a long walk!
