Ok, you know about my race jealousy… It’s happening again this weekend, but I won’t get into it again.
However, something else makes me angry and I want to get it off my chest!
I have been running for 3 years now. After my first year of running I ran my first 10k and on my second year of running, I celebrated it at Disneyland by doing Dumbo Double Dare. I trained hard! I did all the runs and miles and took it seriously! I wanted to do this even if somewhere deep inside I sometimes had doubts…
With Princess weekend coming and its challenge too, I tought about my journey and I am proud of myself.
Last month the registrations for Dumbo came and then I got angry!
A lot of people do not take Disney races seriously… Oh it’s Disney! I’ve never run but I will start and run 19.3 miles in two days! Uh! Hello? It’s not a walk in the park! Yes it’s Disney but you still have to do the distance…
I said, I was proud of my journey because RunDisney was what got me started as a runner again. But did I go and register for an half marathon 6 months after my start? Hell no! I built it, I trained and when I felt ready, I registered! Don’t get me wrong, some people can run an half marathon after 3 months of running but I don’t think it’s the majority.
So, do you feel that some people take Disney races too lightly?
Faith, trust and pixie dust,
