Thank you all!

It's in the bag...2 Half Marathons in 2 months. The Coast to Coast Medal is proudly on display in my bedroom.


Just 1 year ago, I went to Orland to run my first 5K...the Royal Family 5K at Disney's Princess Half Marathon Weekend. While there, I got to see the Coast to Coast Medal for myself, and set my sights on earning it. My goal was to get it in 2013.

To qualify, you have to run a Half Marathon distance or longer race at Disneyland in California, and one at Disney World in Orland, FL.

I used the Jeff Galloway run/walk/run method, and trained to finish...basically I just wanted to get across the finish line. I was often not sure of my ability to do so. There were days that I was certain that would be lucky to finish, and days where I was certain that I wouldn't. I seem to get sick right about that time of year, and again, I was struck down before each of my races, thus derailing my training plans.

Every one here...all of my Spark Friends...has been nothing but encouraging. You are the best 'virtual' training buddies!

PS 2 full weeks, and no Coke/Diet Coke! Doesn't mean I don't just want to break down and have one, but mind over matter!
