Walt Disney World marathon weekend here we come

Only about 3 1/2 weeks until the 2012 WDW marathon weekend. I am only running the 1/2 in 2012. I had originally signed up for the full, but I have had some foot issues so I dropped the full and moved to the 1/2. Oh yeah, I am running the 5K alos. Can't go to marathon weekend and only run one race right?

My training for the 1/2 has gone very well, and quite frankly I am tired of training and ready to race. Pam is walking her first WDW 1/2 in 2012 after completing 2 Disneyland 1/2 marathons. In 2012 she wants to go Coast to Coast. It has been a good year running for me. I set a PR for the 5K (23:53), the 1/2 marathon (1:52:58) and the full marathon (4:55:51). Pleased with those times and it gives me new goals to shoot for.

Til next time run strong and enjoy the moment.

Long time no post

Wow it has been months since I posted anything here. Much as happened since the last post. I ran the Goofy challeneg in January, ran my first sub 2 half marathon in early April & ran a second sub 2 half in late April. Currently I am running 30 miles a week building my base miles.

My next scheduled race is the Disneyland 1/2 in September. Pam is going to run/walk it again this year as well. In June I am joining 11 other runners in St. Louis to run the Mojo StLoco. It is a 50 mile run with friends. We are running just for the fun of it and getting to spend time together.

In July Pam & I are cruising on the Disney Dream for a five night cruise. We are both really excited and looking forward to it. Hoping to take a short Xmas trip to WDW in December. We love the world at Xmas time.

In April we had a new addition to our family. Our grandson Elias came into the world on April 26th. He was a little early, but doing just fine. We know have Elli & Eli as our grandchildren. All I can say is this it is very cool to be a grandparent.

I will try to post more often than I have in the past, I promise.

Til next time, run strong & enjoy the moment.
