Gearing up for Goofy

Well, here we go! I’m heading into the final two races in my racing “season”, and they’re doozies. I’m running the back-to-back Goofy Challenge at Walt Disney World, which means for the next 2 mornings I’ll get up at 3:00AM and head to the EPCOT parking lots to start running a half marathon (Saturday) and a full marathon (Sunday).

I’m not sure how I’m feeling about this. I’m not “nervous”, but I’m not exactly confident. I know I haven’t written about my Chicago marathon, but it went well. I had to take a solid month off to recover thanks to my injury. My “between marathon” training schedule only had me running up to 16 – 18 miles, and my injury kept me resting more than the training schedule called for.

What I’m saying is that I feel soft. Undertrained. I’ve done some great cross training thanks to 21 Day Fix, but still…

I’m still not entirely unnerved by this. Last year I was less trained, heavier and less overall “in shape”, and I survived the Goofy Challenge just fine. Not great. Just “fine”.

So, this weekend is about “fun”. My sister and I are running the half together in costume.

That’s right. I’m running in costume. A thing I don’t do. But I’m doing it. Because: fun.

So, if you’re out there tomorrow running the half marathon look for this cheeky droid. Beep boop.
