It’s been a busy week for me. So much so that I’ve been pretty neglectful of things around here!
This part January, I took on the inaugural Dopey Challenge and my third Disney Marathon Weekend. Last week I signed up for what will be my fourth Disney World Marathon Weekend, and second Dopey Challenge. Despite the early wake-up calls, I loved this challenge. I loved all the medals and the feeling of accomplishment even more. So I’ll be back again in 2015 to do it all over again.
And the best part is I get to have my family down there with me. We’re making this a big ol’ family vacation, with my wife, kids, parents, in-laws, third cousins, Uncle George who I haven’t seen since 1976…you get the picture. My wife, all three kids and even my parents are all signed up for races during the course of the weekend too. I can’t wait for January to get here!
Cheshire Half Marathon
To help get in ready for January, I added a few more races to my schedule including the Cheshire Half Marathon this coming Sunday. I ran the inaugural race back in 2012, but took last year off as I wasn’t feeling trained enough for it. But I signed up for this fast and flat race that covers a great amount of land on a bike path running into a neighboring town. The course is really great, and two years ago I missed a PR by 11 seconds. I’m hopeful that this year might bring a little more luck, but either way, I’m just excited to get another race on my calendar.
Ragnar Cape Cod
The countdown is on until #TrD takes on Ragnar Cape Cod in just over two weeks and the excitement is growing! We have our start time all set (A nice early 7:00AM – yeesh!), vans rented, and are almost ready to start packing up our gear. The experience last year was beyond amazing, and this time is already looking to outdo it.
The next couple of weeks will definitely be as equally busy with Ragnar and two half marathons coming up, but man do I love this time of year. There's nothing better than being able to enjoy this nice weather by staying on the run!
