Couch to Turkey Trot and Castaway Cay 5k

Hello all! After my last cruise on the Fantasy and hearing about the CC 5k, I knew I had missed out on something really fun.

I've been overweight my entire life it seems, but I'm 24 now and I've decided to make some drastic changes. I've started weight watchers and have been using the C25k app religiously.

Watching the rundisney youtube and seeing how much fun the races are, it inspired me to get into shape so I can run disney races! I've been doing well the past couple weeks! (^½^)

Hi Linda!
I'm hoping to do a Disney race in the next year or two, plus some local races. I'm definitely looking forward to the CC 5k!

Oh yay! Another runner and a blogger! Love it! Best of luck to you! It is my dream to run in a Disney race!

I finished the C25K app in January and really have a love/hate relationship with running. Right now, I love it though!

What W/D are you on? Going to check out your blog now! Mine is linked in my siggy.

FisherJenn,
Congratulations on making the decision to better your life. You are surrounded by people who COMPLETELY understand the struggle! Good luck on your training (I'm guessing it's bad form to tell a runner to break a leg...) Have fun at the Turkey Trot!

Heather
