The race took a lot out of me so besides resort hopping and dinner at DTD that night I was pretty much wiped out. Then Sunday was my only park day so my cousin and I were racing through MK and Epcot. I couldn't even stay til Wishes on Sunday- I was feeling pukey and left right before it started. Maybe next time.

OoOOoooooOOOHHHHH! This is going to be fun. Not only do we get to see them race, we get 12 months of trash talking.

Now to decide where to put my support?

He's already got a year of training in - what do you think he did this weekend?

You'd be very surprised how much training you can get done in a year. 2014 is certainly doable, even for a non-runner. I give you examples A and B:

You're cousin would be a good one. She really took you behind the woodshed on the half this year. (Me too, of course. But she's your cousin)

Its not the training. I have ran a couple of halfs before. I only have two weeks avacation a year (august to August anniversary) and we will be required to take two one week trips to Bulgaria for the adoption. I am hoping we will have that completed before the summer of 2014.

Great job

At the 5k mark she looked at her watch and said "wow, I've never run 3.1 miles in 33 minutes before". I say, "yeah, we're really moving". She says, "No- I've never gone this slow before." We split up at the castle. Til then we ran about a 10:30 pace. After that she ran at a 8:30 pace. She beat me by a half hour. But guess who won at Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin? That's right- me!

I'm not sure what she weighs now, but she only decided to run about a year ago. Since then she has lost 80 pounds and is one of those running addicts. I'm not sure having her as a nemesis would be a good idea. It would be like the Bears/Packers rivalry in the 90's. It's not a rivalry if only one team is good.

She says she's going Goofy next year.

I just want to chime in and say that for any of you who think you can't do this, you can. One year ago I weighed 310 lbs. Through diet and exercise I lost 40 lbs in 2012. When I started my training in June I could barely run for 2 minutes. In September I did my first 5k. I then did 10k's in October and November. This past weekend I did the half in 2:47:07. This was about 17 minutes off my goal but I didn't factor in how much the crowds would slow me down at the beginning and I am still recovering from a sinus infection/cold that I think slowed me down a bit. I'll be back to do more halfs and hopefully eventually a full. Going to try and lose another 40-50 lbs this year and then I can be even more competitive!

Slow down just a minute....I have yet to pick sides. Right now I more like a mercenary - guns for hire, that type of thing. Doc asked for a Logo, and I'm working on it. If Steve asks for a Logo, I'll help him out too.

And THAT'S What matters! (Well, actually Toy Story Mania Matters more because I'm better at it than Buzz. But you get the idea)

Bears/Packers of the 90s huh? Couldn't think of a more recent example of a one sided rivalry? Like Packers/Bears of the 2000s?

Awesome Chris! Starting to train is the toughest part, you're well on your way!

I'll give you my only piece of running advice; "Left foot, right foot." As silly as that is, it's gotten me through many a grueling training run and race.
