I'm not sure if the cold weather got to me last night or if I really am that crazy BUT I just signed up to do my first half marathon.....with no training!
First off, I love Star Wars, so this was just obvious. Second, I've run 5ks before but a half marathon, I may have a death wish, haha! For those of you that don't know, a half marathon is 13.1 miles....13.1!!!
When I first saw that this was a virtual half marathon, I was intrigued. A virtual marathon? Maybe I virtually run? Well, I was wrong. BUT it does mean I can participate in a Disney run, without having to go to Disney. You can literally do this run from anywhere! You can run around the block, the treadmill, or through the Riverwalk!
Now for the cool part....you have to run 13.1 miles BY March 31st! So you can literally run a few miles every day, log your mileage and time, and then submit it before the 31st and BOOM you've completed your half marathon!
Yes, technically I'm not running a full, real life, half marathon because I'll be spreading out my 13.1 miles over a few days. But hey, at least I'm running! And what better way to warm up to an ACTUAL half marathon then this? OH! Did I mention that I get a medal at the end too? So, kinda like a real run!
