This is a one and done for me, as well. I am totally addicted to Half Marathons, and will probably keep up with the 3 during the Fall, 3 during the Spring schedule and fill in the blanks with some 5Ks, 10Ks, and 5 milers. After the Marathon I am going to be working on improving my Half time.

I haven't decided if this is my last marathon or not. I ran the full in 2012 and I'm doing the Goofy in 2013. I'm pretty sure I'll want to do the anniversary Goofy in 2 years (or is it 3?). I just find full marathon training is SO much more of a time commitment (I know it should be obvious but...) and I don't know that I want to keep up that commitment. Maybe I should work towards running faster half marathons instead?
Thankfully I don't have to decide tonight!

The only other marathon I would do after this one is to do Goofy. I guess I could say it's on my bucket list for the bling! What can I say, I love bling!!

I know I will be hooked. There will be the normal "never again" right as the race finishes, but I am certain my addictive nature will be forcing me to sign up for the next.

While training for this full, I have already told my wife that I am gonna do Goofy next year. She thinks I am nuts.

I want to call myself a bucket lister, but honestly I never thought I could do a marathon so it wasn't even in my list of possibilities. But here I am. A year and 1/4 after I started training for my first half (the princess) and I totally feel I can do it! I turn 40 in a year and 1/2.

I am seeing this as a one and done. Then again, I thought the Princess would be my only have and I've done 2 more since then.

Scheduled to run 15 miles some time this weekend. The weather isn't cooperating though. A line of nasty t-storms heading our way starting pretty soon. Let's see when we can fit it in.

I turned 40 this year and kicked my own butt to get up and out. I will, God willing, run my first half and first (and likely only) full before 41.

40 is a powerful year for many women.

For me, I wanted to regain my strength and focus, after devoting 15 years to raising kids and getting my career started. It has been a time of inner focus, and wanting to get my groove back on.

I look way hotter at 40 than I did at 38.

I am a lean, mean, 40-machine.

Awful run this morning! I wanted to do 12, but only got to 2.5 before feeling like I might pass out and decided to just call it a 30-45 minute run since I missed one during the week and try again tomorrow. I usually have a large bagel with peanut butter and a banana before a morning run, but we were all out this morning. The only thing I could find was a single granola bar. Yeah, that was not enough! Planning to hydrate and eat right today, get some bagels, and make tomorrow a good run.

Had a really good run this morning... got up and out pre-dawn for my first freezing run (32 degrees as I left the house).

9 miles in the quiet, dark, (with headlamp and red flashers) and I ran it at a much faster pace than any 8 mile or longer run to date.

Total time was 1:41:55... 11:19/mile pace for the 9 miles.

My next race is the Philadelphia Half Marathon next month and I have a goal of 2:30... I'm right on (actually just shy) of that pace for a long run now. Another month of training, and I should be able to comfortably get there as long as conditions aren't too bad.

Then the WDW Half in January will feel like a fun victory lap and I won't feel the need to run it hard.

I can't wait.

I'm really glad as we get into the fall that I decided to stay with the half instead of trying to move up to the full... I am really enjoying running right now because I know I can do this distance and do it well... if I do a Disney Full as some time in the future, I'm not planning to make it my first full marathon... too much anxiety around that.

Ted

I have 8 miles planned for today but I'm hardly feeling motivated. DH and I are running the Detroit half next Sunday so all of our long runs are done and we're tapering down now.

I'm quite content to stay curled up on the couch with my dogs today just watching the rain fall outside but I know I should get out there Maybe I could muster up some motivation to get my run done on the treadmill

Hey! I'm going to be 38 next month! I think I look pretty hot right now, but I hope to be as hot as you at 40.

I started running last year after two miscarriages within six months. I felt like my body failed me and I needed to take back some control. The idea for the PHM came up and I decided, I can do that. Started and I haven't stopped. I might need therapy because I feel this need to keep beating myself, lol. I have since run another 1/2 and PR'd on that one and today I ran my 4th 10k and although the official results aren't in yet, I'm sure it's my best time yet. My next challenge is the Disney Marathon. I'm sure it won't be my last full and I HOPE to get the Goofy in in two years and then train to finish a 1/2 Ironman by my 45th birthday.

Whatever the reasons, it feels good to get out there and getter done!!!

I have a 7 mile GMP run today followed by my first 15 of the cycle tomorrow.

Is anyone else using Wine & Dine has their tune up race? I hope I'm not too tired from the Very Merry Christmas party the night before!

Good luck in Philly! I ran it as my first ever half last year and it was a blast! Beware the killer hill by the zoo though! (says the girl who lives in flat as heck Florida!)

Hi, Question for WDW marathon veterans. Have submitted 10 K time of 1:03. What corral do you think I would be in? I have the chance to do another 10 K before Dec where the lowest I could probably do it is 59 minutes. Is there any point in doing the 10K as wasn't sure if dropping a couple of minutes would actually move me up a corral?

Love to hear your thoughts.

Everyone stay motivated on those cold dark mornings!!!!! I tell myself " get out there. This is what you signed up for. This is not negotiable!" I also report to hubby what I will be running so that he will check back with me when I am done. I always finish what I told him so I can't lie to him. It keeps me motivated
