Fast forward to 2012 and my year was filled with all kinds of training and races. My first goal was to run a personal best time for my leg (a half marathon) at the Walt Disney World Marathon weekend relay. The race conditions were fantastic and I improved my time by over 3 minutes with a finish of 2:03. I have run 3 more half marathons (2 with my daughter) since and am preparing for my first full marathon in January as part of the Walt Disney World Goofy Challenge which includes a half marathon the previous day. While my daughter and I don't live in the same town, we frequently communicate about our training runs and even blog about our experiences at www.werundisney.com.
Who would have thought that at 57 I would begin my running career? Certainly not me! It's taught me a lot about myself and has been a great experience to share with my daughter.
