We did it! Mark and I ran the Disney Marathon yesterday!!!
I can hardly believe it! My body is very aware that I ran a marathon and my muscles definitely got the memo, but I really don’t think that it has set in yet that I’m a MARATHONER!
Mark told me “I’m going to run a marathon.” and I thought he was crazy. This was almost 5 years ago and at the time, we were in college, overweight, and definitely not runners. It seemed impossible and something that we would never do.
A few years later, I am so excited to say that we did it – we ran a marathon!
As we crossed the finish line, I was hit with so many emotions. I was so relieved to be done and so proud that Mark and I accomplished this impossible feat together.
Running through the parks was a blast and I loved seeing all of the Disney characters, but running in Orlando after training in Philadelphia was tough. The heat and humidity were brutal, but we did it.
Here we are at mile 25… almost done!
Now it’s time to celebrate and enjoy the parks!
I’m working on a full recap of the marathon, so check back!
