I don't know about you guys, but I've been glued to my computer screen all morning watching the Boston Marathon. The elite runners are no joke! I'm not tearing up watching them cross the finish, I just have something in my eye. All the excitement and the hype is the perfect kick-off to my week.
Tomorrow starts general registration for Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend! Considering it's an anniversary year for the Goofy Challenge I'm thinking that will sell out quickly. Disney knows how to hook us runners with those spinner medals! I'm sure watching the marathon today has also inspired some people to sign up for the WDW marathon tomorrow as well. Boston's ok, but you don't get to ride Expedition Everest halfway through. I know it's going to be hard, but I have to resist the peer pressure to sign up tomorrow!
Don't forget if you do decide to sign up tomorrow to have your active.com password ready. If you don't already have an account, make one now! Keep checking, you can sometimes sign up a few minutes before registration "officially" opens. Also, Disney Visa Card (and debit card) holders, use the first 4 digits of your card for a discount on your registration. It hasn't been confirmed yet, but I was able to get $15 off my TOT registration that way. Give it a try, it can't hurt.
This Friday, I set off to DC for the Nike Women's Half Marathon! I have to admit I'm kind of freaking out since I've been sick/had the WORST allergies since last week. Lots of sinus pressure, post-nasal drip, yum, all that good stuff where I sound like I smoke 5 packs a day and breathing is sometimes questionable. AHHHHH! I've been trying every trick in the book to get myself to where I need to be in order to run on Sunday. If worse comes to worse I will power walk those 13.1 miles to get my Tiffany necklace!
QOTD: What running events are you looking forward to this week? Will you be signing up for WDW Marathon Weekend?
