I wanted to run the Disney half-marathon this year, but registration closes out very early, like 11 months in advance of the January event, and I was laughably late to sign up when I investigated last summer. So I planned to get an early registration in this month for 2010. Running/singing friend Seth urged me to consider the full marathon, and I’ve been thinking about it for the last 24 hours. Coincidentally, this morning at the Y I met a woman who just Sunday completed her first Disney marathon, and it was a big goal for her. A sign?
I just registered and paid my non-refundable fees for the full marathon, next January 10, 2010. 357 days to train. Wish me luck.
