It’s Official!!

Thanks to the generosity of my parents, who sent me the money to register both as a reward for my hard work and also as an incentive to keep going, I have registered for one of my premier “Destination Races”, #1 on the “Must Run List”, the Walt Disney World Half Marathon in January of 2013.

Ever since I took up running 3 years ago, I’ve wanted to run Disney.  Even when I was struggling to run/walk 7 tenths of a mile and was not thinking about anything longer than a 5K much less anything remotely close to half marathon distance, I wanted to “someday” run Disney.  Well.. Someday will be January 12, 2013 thanks to my parents.  And my brother and sister and their SO’s are coming down too for a family Disney weekend and it’s gonna be AWESOME!

Stay tuned for pre-race details as it gets closer, and of course what will surely be an epic, picture filled race recap!

  • About Me

    I am a recent graduate in Food Science (NC State, 2009) and I work for a major food manufacturing company. I love food, but I can no longer eat anything that crosses my path. About 24 months ago I begin a serious struggle to get my obesity under control and reduce my chances of developing Type II diabetes. Since September of '09 I have lost 50 pounds and I still have a long ways to go. I've started eating better and exercising more, including taking up running.
