Easy Fun Run Plus

Saturday, March 02, 2013

The Galloway group I've been running with that does the run 2 min/walk 1 min was out of town, so I ran with my old 1 min run/1 min walk group. We went 5.6 miles, very easy. Two of the people I ran with did the Disney Princess Half Marathon last week end. Here are Jan and Karen at the end of the race in the tutus they made:

They said the race was really fun! 27,000 women and 2,000 men ran it. Don't expect your best time, they said, as frequently they could not get around other runners. A lot of people stopped to take pictures and Disney provided a lot of entertainment along the way. Runners have to pick up their race packet the day before and be in the assigned corral at 5am. They stayed in the All Sports Complex and took a bus to the corral start in Epcot. Each corral is started with fireworks. I'm still thinking I want to do this race in 2014 -- tiara and all. When you sign up you have to specify which princess you are representing. One of them was for Cinderella and one for Ariel, but their costumes were really generic princess. Not sure I could run in a tutu, but may have to try!!

After the group run this morning we had a 20 minute coffee and chat break. Then I went to the YMCA and ran over 5 more miles faster. I've been invited to participate in a virtual half marathon two weeks from today on the trail near my house -- the one I often cycle. There would be an actual group of us running, but the sponsoring agency is virtually present. Might just do it! 11 miles is the longest I've run recently, but I think that is good enough training to do a HM on short notice. A week from today is my three 5Ks. I'll be ready!!
