Now I am about to tackle the same race after 5 years with so many more races under my belt. I remember finishing that race and thinking-I could NEVER do a marathon and now I have done 3 of them and am in the middle of training for my 4th.
I thought the idea of Goofy challenge and running races back to back was crazy (those people that did a 5k and half were crazy!) but yet I have a Goofy challenge as part of Dopey, along with about to complete my 3rd Dumbo Double Dare, 2 Glass Slipper challenges, 1 Pixie Dust Challenge, 1 Rebel challenge, and own 5 coast to coast medals! I am currently signed up for Infinity Gauntlet, Rebel Challenge, Pixie Dust challenge and will sign up for the Dark Side challenge and that is just the Disney challenge, not counting the 5k/10k for the Turkey Trot and the New Years Challenge.
When I finish the Disneyland half (the 10th anniversary), it will be my 40th rundisney medal ever and I can't think of a better race to celebrate that milestone. It will be my 27th rundisney race and my 48th race ever (52nd if you count my virtual runs!). INSANE!!!
But you know what this means? I HAVE to stick with my tradition of doing the 5th year and 10th year of every race and go from there. I have run the 5th anniversary of: DL half, Princess half, wine and dine half, and will run tink half (couldn't do the others). I will have now run the 10th DL half and 10th goofy challenge. LOVE anniversary medals!
Overall, I am so excited to run and celebrate this weekend. So many friends are running with me, including my brother flying out to race, and it should be a good celebration. There will probably be some happy tears shed because if you had ever told me I would have done all I have 5 years ago, I would have thought you were crazy. It truly is amazing what an be accomplished!
What was your first race? When is your runiversary?
