I’ve been a Disney fanatic my entire life. I think I’ve been to Disneyland over 30 times and I’ve also gone to Disney World and even Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay, when I went on the Disney Cruise with my family. It’d be a dream come true to work for Disney someday; I’d love to dance in the parades as Sleeping Beauty or Cinderella. As she says, “a dream is a wish your heart makes…”
That’s why I am absolutely thrilled about this week’s goal, which a friend of mine suggested to me:
#268: Run the Disney World half marathon.
This sounds like a dream come true! I’ve never been much of a runner until recently but I think this would be the experience of a lifetime. Participants get to run through the Magic Kingdom and Epcot; donning Minnie Mouse ears, Goofy hats, or whatever Disney character garb strikes your fancy. Where do I sign?
But a lot will have to happen in order for me to accomplish this goal. The race is on January 8 (which is during the school year) and I’d have to fly out to Florida. Hopefully it would become either a family or a friend trip–so if any of you would like to join me–I’d love to have you come along! Also, the race costs $135 to participate and then there’s the cost of airfare and a hotel. So there will definitely need to be a family chat regarding this new project. Oh yeah, and then I will need to have a training schedule; right now it’s an accomplishment to run 3 miles let alone 13. So if any of you have a workout routine you’d like to share–I’ll all Mickey Mouse ears!
